According to tipster Yogesh Brar, who's renowned for accurate predictions in the tech sphere, the Pixel 8a is slated for a May launch, aligning neatly with Google's flagship event.

Google Pixel 8a: Expected Specifications

While concrete details remain scarce, leaks surrounding the Google Pixel 8a's specifications offer enticing glimpses into its potential capabilities. Among the highlights is a purported 6.1-inch full-HD+ OLED display boasting an impressive 120Hz refresh rate, promising fluid visuals and smooth interactions for users.

Under the hood, the Google Pixel 8a is rumoured to pack a punch with the Tensor G3 chipset, a powerhouse chip also found in its higher-end counterparts, the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro.

Battery life is expected to receive a boost, with whispers indicating a larger 4,500mAh battery compared to its predecessor's 4,385mAh capacity. This upgrade, coupled with support for 27W fast charging, promises users extended usage without the hassle of frequent recharges.

On the imaging front, early leaks suggest a familiar camera setup, with a 64MP primary camera featuring Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) and a 13MP ultra-wide camera for capturing expansive vistas. Selfie enthusiasts can anticipate a reliable 13MP front camera to capture their best angles.
