The smartphone is set to be one of the biggest releases in the mid-range smartphone market segment and expectations are naturally high. Hence, ordinary users and tech enthusiasts alike cannot wait to get their hands on the Pixel 6a.
We now know that they will not have to wait much longer. As spotted by the 9to5Google, Amazon specifies that limited pre-order availability is just around the corner – beginning on July 21st PDT. The Amazon page of the Pixel 6a showcases all three color options (Chalk, Charcoal and the face greenish Sage shade).
9to5 Google has also made another interesting observation. Amazon apparently made a (small) blunder when listing the spec details of the Pixel 6a. In the comparison table, Amazon makes two major mistakes.
Firstly, it claims that the Pixel 6a features wireless charging. Simply put, it does not. Secondly, what is even more (or less, depending on the perspective) funny is that Amazon also asserts with full confidence that the Pixel 6a will be powered by the same chipset as the Pixel 7, Google’s upcoming flagship device.
In truth, there is a lot of difference (one year worth of difference to be precise) between the processors at the heart of the two Pixel handsets. While both are in fact Tensor chipsets, the Pixel 6a will have the original Tensor, which made its debut with last year’s Pixel 6, while the Pixel 7 will house the SoC’s successor – the upcoming Tensor v2. Needless to say that you will not be getting the same processing power from both devices
Everything else, thankfully, adds up. Users should be able to pre-order the Pixel 6a at the price of $449 shortly.
