Google Pixel 8a Renders Leaks: Dual Rear Cameras, Curved Edges
The Google Pixel 8a has emerged in a series of leaked renders, shortly after the company unveiled its flagship phones for the year, the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro. These leaked images indicate that the device will feature a 6.1-inch flat display and retain the distinctive raised horizontal camera bar seen in Google's current-generation Pixel models. Moreover, it's likely that the Pixel 8a will have slightly larger dimensions compared to the Pixel 8, based on information circulating online.
Detailed renderings of the Pixel 8a were disclosed by tipster Steve Hemmerstoffer (X: @OnLeaks) in collaboration with Smartprix. These images showcase the Pixel 8a in a color reminiscent of the Rose variant introduced with the Pixel 8 at Google's Made by Google 2023 hardware launch event last week. While the front and rear appearances of the phone are similar to the standard model, the bezels on the Pixel 8a appear to be slightly thicker.
According to the tipster's information, the Pixel 8a will measure 152.1 x 72.6 x 8.9mm, indicating a slight reduction in height, width, and thickness compared to the Pixel 7a. Unlike its predecessor, the midrange model for the upcoming year may also sport more rounded corners, as seen in the leaked images.
The rear panel of the Pixel 8a features a raised camera module that closely resembles the one on the Pixel 8, housing two rear cameras on the left side and an LED flash on the right side. The Google logo is prominently displayed in the center of the rear panel.
The tipster has additionally shared 360-degree renders of the purported Pixel 8a, revealing a USB Type-C port at the bottom of the display flanked by speaker grilles. The front of the phone sports a centrally aligned hole punch cutout for the selfie camera, while the top of the display accommodates a slender ear speaker for phone calls.
On the top edge of the phone, an antenna line is visible, which may serve purposes such as cellular connectivity or potentially supporting ultra-wideband (UWB) technology. While sales of Google's Pixel 8 series of smartphones have yet to commence in India, the company has not officially announced plans to launch a midrange version of its flagship smartphones. Nevertheless, more details about the Pixel 8a are expected to emerge in the months leading up to its anticipated launch next year.
