New Google Pixel phone tipped to launch in India by Q1 2022, could be Pixel 6a

A new Google Pixel phone seems to be on its way in India.

Highlights
  • A new Pixel phone is tipped to launch in India by Q1 2022.
  • The handset in the question could be the Pixel 6a and it may appear on the BIS certification site soon.
  • Pixel 6a is said to come with a 6.2-inch OLED display, a Tensor chipset, and 12.3MP dual cameras.

Pixel 6 and 6 Pro are the company’s latest flagships and they come with the in-house Tensor chipset, which is a first from the Mountain View giant. But much to fans’ disappointment, the phones haven’t launched in India. Google has been notoriously skipping flagship launches in India post Pixel 3. Now, according to noted tipster Yogesh Brar, a new Pixel device is heading to India and may debut by the end of Q1 2022. The mysterious Pixel phone could appear on the BIS certification, which is a must for handsets launching in the country. While it isn’t confirmed, the handset in question could be the rumoured Pixel 6a.

Google Pixel 6a heading to India?

A new Pixel phone will be launching in India by the end of Q1 2022, which means by March this year. The handset could be the Pixel 6a, which should replace the dated Pixel 4a off the shelves. 91mobiles has exclusively shared renders of the phone, revealing the entire design in full glory. It is said to come with a Tensor chipset and an older camera setup on the back.

Talking about the design, the Pixel 6a shares a design language as the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro. It has a centrally positioned punch-hole camera to house the selfie snapper and probably an in-display fingerprint sensor. It has slim bezels and a flat screen on the front. On the back, the visor-like camera module is retained this time around as well. It will house dual cameras and an LED flash. It seems to have a glass back and probably a dual-tone finish. The volume rocker and the power buttons.

The volume rocker and power button are on the right edge. It is said to measure 152.2 x 71.8 x 8.7mm (10.4mm including rear camera bump). The USB Type-C port and two grilles, one for the speaker and one for the microphone are at the bottom. There are antenna cutouts on all four sides, and the SIM card housing is on the left side of the device.

Pixel 6a specifications

Google Pixel 6a is said to sport a 6.2-inch flat OLED display with an in-display fingerprint sensor. It is said to be powered by the Tensor chipset paired with up to 8GB RAM and 128GB storage that may not be further expandable. The phone will boot Android 12 OS out of the box and have a 12.2MP Sony IMX363 sensor for the primary camera and a 12MP IMX386 sensor, probably for ultra-wide shots. It could have an 8MP IMX355 sensor on the front.
