Here’s how Google Pixel 7a could be “different” from its predecessor


Google has yet to officially confirm the launch of the Pixel 7a, but the rumor mill is buzzing with the phone’s expected features. Likely unveiled in early 2023, the Pixel 7a would be codenamed “lynx”. According to reliable tipster Kuba Wojciechowski, the smartphone may come with a lot of upgrades over its Pixel 6a predecessor.

The leakster says the handset will come with an all-new rear camera. The current Pixel 6a is equipped with a 12.2-megapixel Sony IMX636 sensor. According to him, Google is also making changes to the camera sensor of the upcoming Pixel 7a. The handset is expected to feature a 64MP Sony IMX787 main sensor and an IMX712 wide-angle lens.

Moreover, Google Pixel 7a would also be compatible with wireless charging. The existing Pixel 6a only offers wired charging. But according to Wojciechowski, the next handset could come with wireless charging. However, it will only offer a charge of up to 5 watts, which means the charging speed will be slow.

Another change that is rumored to come with Pixel 7a is that it may come with a 1080p display with 90Hz refresh rate. While the existing Pixel 6a comes with a 90Hz display made by Samsung , Google has capped the refresh rate at 60Hz. But the Pixel 7a can offer a 90Hz refresh rate display.
