Unknown Google Pixel phone CAUGHT testing in India! Is this Pixel 6a?
Google Pixel phone caught testing in India at the moment. Rumours suggest this could be the Pixel 6a ahead of its possible India launch.
Is Google testing a new Pixel device in India? With rumours suggesting Google planning a Pixel device for the Indian market, a new Google Pixel device has been caught testing in India. No details on what this model is but tipster Mukul Sharma says that the device is currently undergoing private testing. Sharma says the device could most likely be the Pixel 6a, which could come in as the successor to the Pixel 4a from 2020. Google hasn't launched a single Pixel device in India since 2020's Pixel 4a.
The Pixel 6a is expected to be announced at the upcoming Google I/O 2022 event, where Google could also announce Android 13 and a couple of other products. The Pixel 6a could be an affordable version of the Pixel 6 from last year. The phone could bring some interesting specs and features.

The Pixel 6a rumours have painted it as a very different kind of phone in comparison to the Pixel 4a. While the Pixel 4a did not compromise with the camera but the rest of the phone bits, the Pixel 6a will compromise with the camera and keep the rest of the phone bits intact from the Pixel 6. Hence, this year's phone could be vastly the same as the base Pixel 6.
Leaks have suggested that the Pixel 6 could get a 6.62-inch OLED display with a refresh rate of 90Hz. Similar to the Pixel 4a, the Pixel 6a will also have an in-display fingerprint scanner. The phone will have a same design in the rear as the Pixel 6 but it could made of plastic instead of glass and metal.
The phone could get the same Tensor chip we found on the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. Hence, performance on the Pixel 6a could be great. The phone is also said to have a 4500mAh battery with a 20W charging solution. The camera system could use a 12MP sensor for the main camera and a 12MP ultra-wide camera. The phone will ship with Android 12 out of the box but it could get Android 13 as and when it gets released.
