Google working on a Google Pixel Mini: Report

Google is hosting a 'Made by Google' event on October 6, where the company will launch the Pixel 7 series.

Highlights
  • Google Pixel mini teased to be in the works
  • Pixel mini unlikely to be unveiled during Google’s October 6th event
  • Report comes after Apple discontinued iPhone Mini in favour of iPhone ‘Plus’

Google recently announced its ‘Made by Google’ event for October 6, where the company is set to launch the Google Pixel 7 series and the Pixel Watch. Few weeks ahead of the Google event, we are now hearing about a Google Pixel “mini” in the works. According to a report from a noted tipster, the Mountain View, California-based giant is working on a Pixel Mini.

A new report from Digital Chat Station has said that Google made be working on a small-screen flagship, which is code-named Neila. The tipster also said that the mini Google Pixel will come with a similar design to its elder siblings, with a centred hole-punch display and the two-tone back panel design with the camera visor.

Currently, this is all the information that the tipster has given us about the Pixel Mini. This comes at a time when Apple has discontinued its small-screen iPhone Mini models, in favour of an iPhone 14 ‘Plus’ to cater to the growing popularity of big screen smartphones. Reports, however, suggest that the iPhone 14 Plus pre-bookings have been lower than that of the iPhone 13 Mini from last year.



It is unlikely that we will hear anything about the mini Google Pixel during the October 6 ‘Made by Google’ event. During the event, Google is expected to launch the Google Pixel 7 series, along with the first smartwatch from the tech giant, the Google Pixel Watch.

Right now, the smallest model of the Google Pixel is the Google Pixel 6a, which was launched a couple of months earlier. The Google Pixel 6a comes with a 6.1-inch OLED display, it is powered by a Google Tensor chipset, paired with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The smartphone comes with a dual rear camera setup that includes a 12-megapixel primary shooter and a 12-megapixel ultra wide-angle lens.
