Now that the Pixel 7 series has gone on sale, there are two Pixel devices left in the rumor mill – the foldable, which may or may not be a myth, and the next “a” phone, which is very real. In fact, according to Amazon, it is not far off. The online retailer is allowing its users to sign up for upcoming promotions.
Now, it doesn’t say when the Pixel 7a will be revealed or anything about it, but it shouldn’t be long. The Pixel 6a has been out since July, months after the 6 and 6 Pro. So, it’s still a fairly new model, but Google has a new Tensor chip and a new design for the “visor” camera island, so a redesigned “a” phone wouldn’t be out of place.
Amazon is signing people up for the Google Pixel 7a ad.
A rumor says the 7a will be released in early 2023, so maybe we’re in for a treat. The same rumor says that Google has ordered 4 million units of the “a” phone, so it should have a lot of faith in that.
We’ve heard about the Pixel 7a under code names – the Pixel 7 is “Panther”, the 7 Pro is “Cheetah” and the 7a is “Felix”. And if tradition holds, the 7a will have a smaller display than the vanilla Pixel 7, so it should be 6.0-6.1.
One thing to note is that Amazon refers to the “Pixel 7a family” as more than one model. The 5a and 6a already have 5G, so this isn’t a 4G/5G thing – are we expecting the Pixel 7a and 7a XL?
All we can do now is subscribe and wait for Amazon to reveal some information on the Pixel 7a – it wouldn’t be the first time the retailer has published pages of phones that are meant to stay under wraps.
