Google Pixel 7a tipped to get face unlock feature from Pixel 7, Pixel 7 Pro
Google should soon launch a few smartphones. Among the highly anticipated devices are the Pixel Fold and Pixel 7a handsets. While Pixel Fold is expected to be the tech giant’s first foldable smartphone, the Pixel 7a is expected to succeed the Pixel 6a and expand the Pixel 7 series launched last year. Several leaks and reports have hinted at many key specs and features of the upcoming Pixel device, a new leak suggests that the phone will feature an additional security feature over its predecessor.
According to screenshots shared by reliable tipster SnoopyTech (@snoopytech) in a Tweeter, the Google Pixel 7a is expected to come with a face unlock feature, in addition to the commonly used fingerprint sensor, for added security. The Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro devices also have Face Unlock. Previous reports suggest the Pixel 7a should feature the same G2 Tensor chipset used in the 7-series phones.
The Google Pixel 7a is also expected to cost $499 (around Rs 40,900) in the US, which is $50 (around Rs 4,100) more than its predecessor, the Google Pixel 6a, which debuted last year. The price increase could be attributed to the use of better or apparently superior raw materials.
The SoC, likely the second-generation Tensor chip, on the Pixel 7a would be paired with up to 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and up to 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage. The phone is likely to boot Android 13 operating system out of the box.
Google Pixel 7a could come in Charcoal, Snow, Sea (light blue) and Coral color options – the last of which will apparently be a Google Store exclusive. It’s also likely to come with a 64-megapixel Sony IMX787 main sensor and 12-megapixel ultra-wide lens and support 5W wireless charging. Slated to be unveiled on May 10 during the Google I/O event, the phone will likely go on sale immediately after launch.
