- A new leak details what to expect from the upcoming A-series Pixel device.
- The Pixel 7a is likely to feature a 90Hz display developed by Samsung.
- Google’s next mid-range smartphone is also said to house all-new cameras and 5W wireless charging.
Google Pixel 6a is by far one of the best mid-range smartphones to choose from despite being criticized for not having a higher refresh rate display. However, that could change with the successor as new details emerge about the alleged Pixel 7a.
The news comes from developer Kuba Wojciechowski, who previously shared information about a Google Pixel 7 Ultra (codenamed “Lynx”) and shared the first details of the Google Tensor G2 chipset ahead of launch.
In his recent series of tweets, Wojciechowski mentioned that the alleged Pixel 7a will feature a 90Hz display along with wireless charging and a new set of dual rear cameras. According to Wojciechowski, the 90Hz panel would be a 1080p display developed by Samsung. It’s interesting to see this inclusion from Google, as it got a lot of flak for not including it in the Pixel 6a (although the display is apparently capable of running at 90Hz).

The developer further clarifies that its earlier prediction of what it believed to be a Pixel 7 Ultra (codename “Lynx”) actually refers to the Pixel 7a.
Similarly, the Pixel 7a would use two new image sensors on the back, an IMX787 wide-angle lens paired with an IMX712 ultra-wide lens. The former is a significant upgrade to the current IMX363 sensor, and Wojciechowski hints that this could make the Pixel 7a a viable option to choose from among the best mid-range smartphones in 2023.
As we’ve heard before, the purported 7a will likely support 5W wireless charging alongside traditional wired charging. Although 5W is quite slow by the standards of top Android phones, it’s still good to see this feature on a mid-range device as it’s not very common at this price point.
Additionally, the Pixel 7a could be the first device to use a Google Tensor chip with Qualcomm’s Wi-Fi/Bluetooth on board dubbed WCN6740. Previously, Google relied on Broadcom for devices like the Pixel 6 series and the Pixel 7.
This year’s Pixel flagships have kept the same launch price as their predecessors, so if Google can do the same with the Pixel 7, that would certainly make the device a killer deal, especially with new add-ons like than higher refresh rate display and wireless. loading. Still, the leak comes well ahead of the Pixel A series’ release cycle, so it’s best to take the information with a grain of salt for now.
The Google Pixel 6a is a great phone that offers fantastic value thanks to its flagship chipset and phenomenal camera performance. Despite its affordable price, the Pixel 6a is capable of plenty of awesome AI tricks to help you get the most out of your phone.
