Google is reportedly working on a new Pixel 6-series smartphone, called the Pixel 6a. In the latest development, Fathom Bracelets (via Xleaks7) has leaked the handset's dummy model, revealing its design. According to the leak, the device will share its looks with the vanilla Pixel 6 model and will feature an in-display fingerprint sensor. However, it will lack a headphone jack. Here's our roundup.
Why does it matter?
- Considering that the latest leak comes true, the Google Pixel 6a will arrive as the first Pixel a-series model to have an in-display fingerprint reader and also the first to skip the 3.5mm headphone jack.
- Compared to its predecessors, the device will flaunt a new premium design and a top-tier custom Tensor chipset, which also powers the flagship Pixel 6 and 6 Pro models.
The phone will have a Full-HD+ AMOLED display
The Google Pixel 6a will feature a punch-hole cut-out with thick bezels and an in-display fingerprint sensor. On the rear, it will have a horizontal camera module housing two lenses and an LED flash.

It will sport a 12.2MP main camera
The Google Pixel 6a is likely to be equipped with a dual rear camera setup comprising a 12.2MP (f/1.7) IMX363 primary sensor and a 12MP (f/2.2) IMX355 ultra-wide lens. For selfies and video calling, it will have an 8MP (f/2.0) front-facing camera.
It will run on Android 12 operating system
The Google Pixel 6a is said to be powered by the in-house Tensor chipset, paired with up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Under the hood, it will run on Android 12 OS and pack a 4,800mAh battery with 30W fast-charging support. For connectivity, the device will offer support for Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, GPS, NFC, and a Type-C port.
