Google Pixel 8a dummy unit leaked, hints at rounder design, dual rear camera setup

Google Pixel 8a is expected to launch next year as the successor to Pixel 7a which was launched this year. Based on Google’s previous midrange phone launch schedule, the company isn’t likely to unveil a more affordable version of the Pixel 8 for a few more months, but details of the phone have already started to surface online. A tipster has now leaked images of the alleged Pixel 8a, giving us an idea of ​​what to expect in terms of design and dimensions.

It is not clear at the moment whether an aluminum dummy model has been created based on the leaked information, but it suggests that the Pixel 8a will have a design that is very similar to the Pixel 8.

The dummy unit image shows the alleged Pixel 8a with a display with thick bezels – these appear much larger than the Pixel 8 – and a center-aligned hole punch cutout to house the selfie camera. It is said to measure 153.44 x 72.74 x 8.94 mm, which is the same as its predecessor.

The second image shared by the tipster shows the back of the Pixel 8a which suggests a dual rear camera setup. Detailed camera specifications have not been disclosed. The Pixel 7a was equipped with a 64-megapixel primary camera and a 13-megapixel secondary ultra-wide camera.

Last month, leaked renders of the Pixel 8a surfaced online, suggesting that it will feature a 6.1-inch display. As a result, the midrange handset could be slightly smaller than the Pixel 8 that was recently launched in India and global markets along with the Pixel 8 Pro. Those leaked images show the Pixel 8a having larger bezels than the standard model.

At the time, tipster Steve Hemmerstoffer (@OnLeaks) claimed that the Pixel 8a would measure 152.1 x 72.6 x 8.9 mm – which is smaller than its predecessor’s measurements. This tipster has a better track record when it comes to leaking details of smartphones before they are unveiled, but we can expect to see more details about the handset in the months leading up to its launch.
