Google Pixel 6a is tipped to debut on July 28th as a successor of the Pixel 5a. The Pixel 6a will be a budget version of the Pixel 6, launched in October last year. Previously, we exclusively shared 5K renders of Pixel 6a, giving an early glimpse of what to expect from the handset. And now, a report from Jon Prosser suggests that Google will announce the Pixel 6a and tease the Pixel Watch at the Google I/O event held in May. Furthermore, the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, alongside the Pixel Watch, is also tipped to debut in October this year. The news comes a few days after Google pushed the Android 12L update for its Google Pixel 6-series.

From what I understand, Google will officially be announcing the Pixel 6a + “teasing” the Pixel Watch.

According to Jon Prosser, Google Pixel 6a will be announced in May. The launch, however, has been pushed for later—July 28th, for many regions. Google Pixel 6a with code name ‘Bluejay’—a bird name, will come in Black, White, and Green colour options. Google could tease a new Pixel watch alongside the Pixel 6a at the May Google I/O event. Later in October, the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro could become official, followed by the Pixel Watch. The price and availability of the Pixel gears are still under wraps.
Google Pixel 6a specifications
Rumour mills suggest that Google Pixel 6a has a 6.2-inch OLED 90Hz display with an in-display fingerprint reader. The device’s heart is a Google Tensor chipset paired with 6GB RAM and 128GB fast storage. A 4,500mAh battery with 20W+ fast charging support powers the Pixel 6a. The device will likely run on the latest Android 12 out of the box, as the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro just received the latest Android update.
