DESIGN 

152.2 x 71.8 x 8.7mm IP67 water and dust resistant design same to Pixel 6, From a design standpoint, the Pixel 6a clearly belongs in the same family as the Pixel 6.

The Pixel 6a is said to be 152.2 x 71.8 x 8.7mm, which is somewhat smaller than the Pixel 6, which is 158.6 x 74.8 x 8.9mm. Google hasn’t released the exact measurements, so it’s difficult to say if they’re correct. However, given the lower screen, it will undoubtedly be a little smaller phone.

DISPLAY

  • 6.1-inch Full HD+ 60Hz AMOLED display with HDR support
  • Fingerprint sensor in the display
  • The Pixel 6a has a smaller 6.1-inch AMOLED display than the 6.4-inch Pixel 6 and 6.7-inch Pixel 6 Pro.

It has a refresh rate of up to 60Hz, which is slower than some of the quickest 90Hz and 120Hz screens we’ve seen on recent phones. However, considering the price, it makes sense. According to Google’s specifications, it has a 20:9 aspect ratio, HDR capability, a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio, and 24-bit/16 million colour coverage.

CAMERAS 

12.2MP primary camera, 12MP ultra wide-angle camera, and 8MP selfie camera. The Google Pixel 6a will have the same camera arrangement as the Google Pixel 5, and hence the Google Pixel 5a 5G. While the Pixel 5’s camera is still excellent, it represents a little departure from what Google has done in the past with its “a” series. Previously, the “a” series was focused on providing a mid-range smartphone with the flagship Pixel camera experience.

The Pixel 6a has a 12.2-megapixel primary camera, a 12-megapixel super wide-angle camera, and an 8-megapixel front camera. However, specs are one thing, and features are quite another.

CONCLUSION 

Certain features, like screen size and refresh rate, camera capabilities, RAM and storage, and battery capacity, increase as you progress through the Pixel 6 versions. You do, of course, pay for those step ups, and you may discover that you don’t need some of them, or that you’re willing to sacrifice on certain elements to save money. The Google Pixel 6 Pro will be worth every cent for some, and it is an incredible gadget, but so is the Google Pixel 6a Review, and don’t forget that while the Pixel 6a makes a few concessions here and there, it still offers the same design, CPU, and 5G for a very inexpensive price.
