Samsung’s Galaxy A series and Apple’s iPhone SE could be some of the best seller mid-range phones in the world, but this does not mean that they bring the betterworth! That could prove especially true in 2023, when Google It is expected to launch the new Pixel 7a.
What makes Google’s 2023 mid-range phone especially intriguing is that, according to leaks and rumorsthis one is now expected to arrive much earlier in the year compared to its predecessors, which would already be a huge win…
In fact, Amazon now lets users sign up for the upcoming “Google Pixel 7a Family Launch Announcement”, indicating that the launch of the Pixel 7a could be brought forward. Amazon’s “Pixel 7a family” reference might even mean there’s more than one Pixel 7a model, which could be a larger Pixel 7a XL, but that’s neither here nor there (for now).
But that’s not where the leaks and rumors end, because developer Kuba Wojciechowski has dug deep into Google’s code to find out virtually. all about the new Pixel 7a, and the news is amazing! After this leak, I actually wonder… Why would anyone buy the vanilla Pixel 7 or…any other Android phone instead of the Pixel 7a?
So, let’s take an early look at the Pixel 7a’s specs! Spoiler: This device is a serious competitor for the phone of 2023 before the year even starts!
Outrageous camera upgrades and a flagship 90Hz display mean the Pixel 7a might just be the best Android phone deal… ever
The biggest update in the history of the Pixel?
According to Kuba Wojciechowskithe Pixel 7a’s display is now expected to match the pixel 7 when it comes to the refresh rate (90hz), addressing my biggest complaint about the Pixel 6a and its 60hz panel. It’s about time Google caught up with the Android competition, as all phones on this price range now come with 90-120 Hz displays.
It’s important to note that the Pixel 7a should have a smaller 6-inch screen, which would make it the perfect choice for many people over the Pixel 7 or Pixel 7 Pro. A compact phone is a valid selling point for users who don’t want to carry a brick in their pocket (my main phone is an iPhone 13 mini).
Big camera upgrades coming to the budget Pixel 7a
What’s just as exciting is that the Pixel 7a is said to launch with the Sony IMX787 main camera sensor that debuted in early 2022, as well as two Sony IMX712 sensors, one for the ultra-wide camera and one for the selfie camera. shooter (again, all that according to Kuba code leaks). While the (supposedly) 13 MP IMX712 has yet to be announced, we already know that the Sony IMX787 is a 1/1.3-inch 64 MP sensor that matches the pixel 7 pro and Galaxy S22 Ultra by size (not megapixels)! This would be an absolutely huge improvement over the Sony IMX363 that Google used in this year’s Pixel 6a and 2017’s Pixel 2 and Challenge the big flagships in a big way!
Google’s plan to compete with Apple and Samsung starts with the Pixel 7a, not the Pixel 7 or Pixel 7 Pro?
Forget flagships; Google’s biggest weapon is the A series.
Competing with Apple and Samsung for sales and market share is tough. Only a couple of phone makers (Huawei, Xiaomi) have managed to properly compete with the US and South Korean giants in the last ten years, which means that no matter how hard it tries, Google will need a long time to catch on. up to date.
However, if there is a way to make an impression, attract interest and sell phones, then it is to make and offer affordable devices that provide incredible value. Huawei and Xiaomi took the same path to the top a few years ago, penetrating the global market with mid-range phones, and Google may now be trying to achieve the same feat!
Massive Pixel 7a update leaks, excited beyond belief Android users guarantee to buy it
Watch out, Apple and Samsung! Pixel 7a might be the best phone deal we’ve ever seen; even Pixel 7 doesn’t stand a chance (which doesn’t make sense, Google)
Frankly, it’s pretty hard to believe what Google is rumored to be doing with the Pixel 7a. I mean, the leaks we have are from reliable sources with a good track record of providing reliable information, but it all seems too good to be true…The Pixel 7a is expected to match the Pixel 7’s specs, except for a smaller screen (which many will prefer) and a slightly different camera arrangement that could turn out to be as good or even better than the standard Pixel. 7! Of course, the 7a will also include three years of timely software updates and four years of extended security support, making it even more attractive.
The main question is whether the Pixel 7a will manage to keep the same $449 price as the Pixel 6a, given all the big upgrades on the horizon. If that’s the case, the 7a could become not only the best mid-range phone on the market, but also one of the best Android deals we’ve seen. As usual!
Speaking of competition, the Pixel 7a’s main challenges are shaping up to be next galaxy a54 (we already know what this one will be like), Nothing Phone 2 (we don’t know anything about this one yet), and the iPhone SE 4. Apple’s mid-range is a bit of a wild card, given that it’s not 100% sure it’ll debut next year. Regardless, none of these phones will be able to match the Pixel 7a when it comes to overall value, at least on paper and if the rumors about all of them come to pass.
