Google Pixel 7a, the rumored mid-range successor to the Pixel 6a, is expected to hit the market in mid-2023. The design, key specs and other details of this Google-branded handset have already leaked online. The Pixel 7a device is said to have a similar design and dimensions to its predecessor, the Pixel 6a, but with some Pixel 7 features. Now, an eBay listing of a handset believed to be a Google Pixel 7a prototype has hinted at the design and specifications of the claimed device.


The Pixel 7a prototype was listed for sale on eBay by user Nikoskom-94. However, the handset was no longer available for purchase at the time of writing. The smartphone appears to have the same design as previous leaks have suggested. The only design difference is that the Pixel smartphones have Google’s “G” logo on the back, but the prototype has a logo that looks more like a Pac-Man silhouette.

According to previous design leaks, the Google Pixel 7a would have a raised camera strip on the rear panel, similar to the Pixel 7 lineup. The two rear camera sensors appear to be close together, the LED flash looking a bit further away. On the front, he is said to have thin glasses and a slightly thick chin. The front camera appeared to have a punch-hole cutout in the center. The volume and power buttons appeared to be on the right edge of the device, while the SIM tray was on the left.

According to the eBay listing, nikoskom-94 sought to auction off the alleged prototype model for $5,000 (about 4.12200 rupees), but there were no takers. The price was lowered to $2,500 (approx. Rs. 2,06,100) and then to $1,650 (approx. Rs. 1,36.00) with the auction set to end on Saturday. The Pixel 7a is expected to cost less than $500 (around Rs 41,200) at launch. As mentioned earlier, the handset is no longer available for purchase.

The Pixel 7a, according to a previous report, will have a 6.1-inch FHD+ OLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate. The Tensor G2 chipset, similar to the Pixel 7 series, will most likely be used, along with 8GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 128 GB of UFS 3.1 storage. The handset is likely to boot Android 13 operating system.

Additionally, the Pixel 7a is expected to include a similar camera setup as the Pixel 7. However, since Google has yet to reveal plans for the release of the Pixel 7a, these rumors should be taken with a grain of salt. The Pixel 7a and Pixel Fold are set to be unveiled at the Google I/O developer conference on May 10.
