Pixel 8a product page reveals more details ahead of launch

Google plans to introduce its newest addition to the Pixel 8 series, the Pixel 8a smartphone, later this month. Leaks before the launch have revealed key details about the Pixel 8a, including its Tensor G3 chip, 120Hz display, seven years of updates, and pricing information.

Recently, @evleaks aka Evan Blass shared full product screenshots, shedding more light on the Pixel 8a. The images confirm the use of Gorilla Glass 3 for screen protection, similar to the Pixel 7a.

Google claims the Pixel 8a is its most durable A-Series release yet and confirms IP67 water resistance, just like the 7a.

The screenshots highlight the Pixel 8a’s fun colors and matte finish. This aligns with leaked images showing a matte finish on the black model, and suggests the same for blue and green variants.

While the color of the white model remains uncertain, renders suggest a consistent matte finish across all colors, following the Pixel 8 Pro’s pattern.

The screenshots indicate that the Pixel 8a might incorporate recycled materials in its construction, potentially in the back or frame, similar to the Pixel 7a’s use of recycled aluminum.

Furthermore, there’s a promotion offering six months of Fitbit Premium with the Pixel 8a. Other features include wireless charging, up to 24 hours of battery life, and support for 30W charging, although the 30W USB-C charger is not included with the phone.

Moreover, the screenshots reveal new camera modes (Best Take, Audio Magic Eraser, Night Sight, and Magic Eraser) borrowed from flagship Pixel devices.

Additionally, the Pixel 8a will support Google One VPN and come with three months of YouTube Premium and the 100GB Google One plan.

Launch date?

Google is likely to launch the Pixel 8a soon, possibly around the Google I/O event on May 14, but some rumors point to early launch even before the I/O.
