An upcoming Google Pixel 7a was the subject of a hands-on video that was recently discovered in a Vietnam-based private Facebook group. The pre-production unit of the Pixel 7a was shown in the video that was randomly shared online. The video only provided one piece of information regarding the product, and that was the fact that the screen was capable of a refresh rate of 90 Hz. This was the only piece of information provided. An anonymous tipster named Chun tweeted that Google had remotely locked the Pixel 7a after it was discovered online.
Google Pixel 7a specs (Rumored)
If there hadn’t been leak after leak in the months leading up to its release, we couldn’t have called it a Google phone. The Google Pixel 7a has not followed this trend so far. One user was able to have an early hands-on with the smartphone far before it is expected to hit store shelves toward the end of this year thanks to a few leaks that exposed the device’s specifications and renders. It should come as no surprise that Google has now remotely locked this particular device, however, it is interesting to note that the fastboot menu has revealed key information about the device’s RAM and storage capacities.
The fact that the Pixel 7a comes with 8 GB of LPDDR5 memory that was supplied by Samsung is now publicly known. In addition to this, it has 128 GB of storage space provided by Micron’s UFS (possibly version 3.1). In addition, the “Lynx” codename, which is associated with the Pixel 7a, can be found in the fastboot menu.
There have been previous rumors that the Google Pixel 7a will be released in the month of May, in line with the tech giant’s annual I/O conference. It is anticipated that Samsung will provide it with an OLED display capable of 1080p at 90Hz. The primary sensor of the dual rear camera arrangement is rumored to be a 64-megapixel Sony IMX787, and the ultra-wide sensor is supposed to be a 13-megapixel Sony IMX712 sensor. It is anticipated that the smartphone will be powered by Google’s Tensor G2 SoC paired with a Qualcomm chip. Additionally, 5W wireless charging is stated to be supported.
