Google has also released the Pixel 7a at its I/O developer conference. It’s a midrange smartphone that takes some features from the flagship Pixel 7 and brings it into a more affordable package.
One of the most significant changes from its predecessor is its capable smartphone camera setup. This includes a 64-megapixel main camera, a 13-megapixel ultrawide camera with a 120-degree field of view, and a 13-megapixel selfie camera. Google‘s computational photography magic and camera software smarts also come to the Pixel 7a, so you get access to super-res zoom (a first for the Pixel A series), Night Sight, Photo Unblur, and Long Exposure (another Pixel A first).
The Google Pixel 7a also sports a 6.1-inch OLED screen with a 90Hz refresh rate and adaptive brightness. It runs on Google’s Tensor G2 chip, which provides fast performance and AI capabilities. The phone supports Pixel software features like Clear Calling, Direct My Call, and voice message transcription.
Google claims the Pixel 7a is the most durable A-series phone, with recycled aluminum, Corning Gorilla Glass display, and IP67 water and dust protection. It has 8GB of memory, 128GB of storage, and a 4,385mAh battery that supports fast and wireless charging. The phone is available in Charcoal, Sea, Snow, and a Coral color option (exclusive to the Google Store).
