Google Pixel 8a Leaks in New Renders, Shows Off Four Colour Options


Google's first new Pixel of the year, the Google Pixel 8a, is expected to be unveiled at the upcoming I/O event. Just a month before the annual developer event, more renders of the Pixel 8a have leaked once again. The new renders show the phone from multiple angles in four color options. According to the renders, which appear to be marketing material, the Pixel 8a could carry over the design language of last year's Pixel 8 series.

Tipster Arsene Lupin (@MysteryLupin) published alleged images of the upcoming Pixel 8a on X (previously Twitter) showing the phone from multiple angles. The images do not reveal any specifications of the phone, although they do show the design in better quality than the previous leaked images. The renders claim the phone's design with a punch-hole display, rounded corners, noticeable bezels and a dual rear camera unit, which we've been seeing for months.

The renders suggest black, beige, blue and green color options for the Pixel 8a. These color combinations are likely to be known as porcelain (beige), bay (blue), mint (green), and obsidian (black). It seems to follow the design language of Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro.

The Pixel 8a is expected to launch during Google's I/O event on May 14. According to earlier leaks, it could feature a 6.1-inch display with a 90Hz refresh rate and be powered by Google's Tensor G3 SoC along with 8GB of RAM. It could be backed by a 5,000mAh battery with support for 27W fast wired charging. It is said to measure 152.1 x 72.6 x 8.9 mm.

The Pixel 8a will be priced at EUR 570 (roughly Rs. 51,000) in the UK for the base variant with 128GB of storage. The 256GB storage version could be priced at EUR 630 (roughly Rs. 56,000).

Google I/O 2023 saw the search giant repeatedly tell us that it cares about AI, along with the launch of its first foldable phone and the Pixel-branded tablet. This year, the company will augment its Android apps, services and operating system with AI technology. We discuss this and more on Orbital, the Gadgets 360 podcast.
