Google lifts the curtain on Pixel 6a at Google I/O 2022

Being predictable isn’t always a bad thing.

Google’s beloved Pixel A-series is back with the Pixel 6a, officially confirmed at Google I/O 2022. As always, this is a cheaper variant of last year’s excellent Pixel 6. Like previous A-series Pixel phones, it looks very similar to its flagship predecessor, with the long, horizontal camera bump along the phone’s rear. It also includes the Google Tensor chip that shipped with Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, giving it the same 5G speeds and security features. Returning camera features include Real Tone filters for more accurate skin tone representation and the Magic Eraser tool for removing unwanted elements from photos after you’ve taken them.

The biggest difference is that it’s launching later this summer and costs far less, with a $450 price tag compared to the Pixel 6’s $600 starting price. You can pre-order it on July 21 and buy it in stores starting July 28.
