While we are still waiting for Google to launch the Pixel 6 for sale in Spain -according to the manufacturer it will arrive in 2022-, we know more details about the launch of its next mid-range version, the Pixel 6a.

It looks like the Pixel 6a launch is coming sooner than expected. Google wouldn’t wait until the Pixel 5a is a year old to launch its successor, as it looks like its next mid-range phone will hit the market in less than four months.

The Pixel 6a would arrive in May

According to Max Jambor, a leaker with a very good track record, it has been reported that the Pixel 6a will be officially presented next May, surely during the Google I/O 2022 developer conference, and it can surely be purchased from day one. as happened with the Pixel 3a.

The first Pixel 3a arrived in May during Google I/O 2019, but due to the pandemic, the Pixel 4a could not be launched in May 2020 and had to be delayed until August 2020. With the Pixel 5a, the company waited a year, August 2021 to launch it, but this model is only on sale in the United States and Japan due to a lack of processors.

With such limited availability of the Pixel 5a, it looks like Google wants to move the Pixel 6a launch forward to May to reclaim the original launch window, which was to launch a mid-range in the first half and a high-end one. end at the end of the year.

According to the leaks, the Pixel 6a will be the mid-range version of the Pixel 6, offering a virtually identical design, but smaller in size. The Pixel 6a is said to have a 6.2-inch display compared to the Pixel 6’s 6.4-inch screen. Also, it looks like we’ll be getting the same Google Tensor processor but with a lower main camera. It would be the first “Pixel A” without a headphone jack, and if it follows in the footsteps of the Pixel 5a, it would also be waterproof and dustproof. What is a mystery is if this would be the first “Pixel A” with wireless charging or if Google will continue to reserve this feature for the top of the range.
