The Most Recent Information On The Google Pixel 8a, Including Rumors And Leaks:
As of the time this article was written, neither the Google Pixel 8 nor the Google Pixel 8 Pro had been made available to the public. It is possible that the Google Pixel 8a will be the company’s upcoming mid-range Pixel phone, offering consumers an alternative that is less expensive than the Google Pixel 8 and the Google Pixel 8 Pro.
We use the phrase “could be” because there is some doubt as to whether or not Google will actually produce the Pixel 8a; we will explain why this is the case below. However, in light of the fact that our review of the Google Pixel 7a awarded it only three stars, the possibility cannot be discounted, and there is certainly room for development.
The following is a rundown of everything we know about the Pixel 8a at this point, and we will continue to add to it as we obtain new information. Then, in the event that this phone is actually released someday, we have compiled a wish list of the features that are most important to us.
It was in December 2022 when a “anonymous but reliable source” told Android Authority that Google was working on the Pixel 8a, which they claimed had the codename “akita.” This was the first claim that was made about Google’s activities in this area. However, they also said that depending on how well the Pixel 7a sold, Google might decide to drop the Pixel 8a and only release new a-series models once every two years instead of annually. This was said to be contingent on how well the Pixel 7a sold.
Since then, a leaker by the name of Yogesh Brar has published an article on X, which was formerly known as Twitter, in which he asserts that the Pixel a-series “seems to be coming to an end” and that “it is certain that there won’t be any 8a coming.” That might sound a little bit more conclusive, but as of right now, none of that has been verified.
As a result of the fact that Google is rumored to be adhering to the same fundamental design it has been utilizing ever since the Pixel 6, which includes a large camera visor running across the back of the phone, we are able to speculate that the Pixel 8a will most likely resemble the Pixel 7a in terms of its overall appearance.
