Google's Pixel 6a has been spotted on a certification website, implying a May release date.


We've been hearing about the rumored Google Pixel 6a for about a week now. Google has not revealed any new Pixel series smartphone development, but the next Pixel A series could be closer to launch. Several Google Pixel 6a models have allegedly been spotted on the website of the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC), confirming their existence and expected launch.

According to other rumors, the Google Pixel 6a will have an 8MP selfie camera and a 5000mAh battery. Google I/O is typically a software-focused event, but if the rumors are true, the Pixel 6a could make its debut in May.

Multiple Google phones with model numbers G1AZG, GB62Z, GB17L, and GX7AS were seen in the FCC listing. These smartphones are likely to be included in Google's Pixel 6a and 7 lineups. According to the previous FCC listing, the GX7AS is related to the Google Pixel 6a; however, all Google phones may offer connectivity such as LTE, 5G, NFC, Wi-Fi 6E, and Bluetooth.

The Google Pixel 6a was also spotted on Geekbench, implying that it will be powered by Google's Tensor GS101 SoC. It is expected to run Android 12 and have a 12-megapixel secondary camera sensor. It will be available in three colors: green, black, and white.

Google Pixel 6a competitor?

If the rumors are true, the Pixel 6a could be a competitor to the recently released iPhone SE. The iPhone is powered by an A15 Bionic processor and has an out-of-date design, which is where the Pixel may have an advantage.

It will be interesting to see what the Pixel 6a has to offer and how much it will cost. However, if the price of the iPhone SE falls, it will have a significant advantage over Google Pixel phones.
