The Google Pixel 6a has just been presented and arrives as a bet for both photography and performance thanks to the Google Tensor inside.
Within the framework of the Google I/O of 2022, those from Mountain View have presented a huge number of news at the software level and, although these are interesting, the truth is that what we all expected was a new mobile device. Google has not disappointed and has presented the Pixel 6a that arrives to complete the family.
The presentation of the Google Pixel 6a has focused on reminding us all that, Although it becomes the youngest brother of the family, this does not mean that it will be less powerful or much worse in terms of performance.. In fact, this new device continues to integrate the same processor as the Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro.
Taking all this into account, we are going to see in detail what awaits us with this new device. At the design level, we find basically the same line that we have seen with the two high-end terminals that were presented last year.this means that the camera module is horizontal and goes from side to side of the device.

Leaving aside the design, we are going to talk about the internal power of this device. Those from Mountain View have made it clear that they have no intention of creating another processor for their mobile with a more moderate price, in fact, the processor that is integrated into this new Google Pixel 6a is the Google Tensor.
When mounting this processor, what we find is that we are facing a terminal that has the same chip as a high-end terminal. In addition, the Google Tensor has shown itself to be a fairly solvent processor today and, the truth is that for being the first proposal by Google, it has turned out quite well.
The screen of the new Google Pixel 6a is 6.1 inches with OLED technology and a Full HD + resolution. As for the refresh rate, those of Google are conservative and stay at 60 Hz. It is protected by Gorilla Glass 3 to protect from falls and scratches. Autonomy is marked by a 4,410 mAh battery.
This battery is compatible with 18 W fast charging, so it is not even remotely the fastest on the market. At the photographic level, what we find is a set of cameras of 12.2 megapixels and 12 megapixels respectivelythe first being the main sensor and the second being the ultra wide angle.
Availability and price of the Google Pixel 6a
During the presentation those of Google have not made any kind of comment about whether this device would reach our borders in the coming weeks. What has been seen is that it would arrive in the United States and would do so in three different colors. The price it would have is well below that of its high-end proposals.
It is not known if there will be more than one version of RAM and storage. At the moment what seems to be obtained by paying the 459 euros that have been set as the price for the Google Pixel 6a is 128 GB of storage and 6 GB of RAM. The device already appears on the Google website and it seems that it will arrive in Spain in the coming months.
