Pixel 7a leak: new features in the A series

News Plus

Being a mid-range phone from Google, the A series makes a lot of sacrifices in order to be an affordable option. Be it by downgrading the screen, using cheaper build materials, to making the device smaller as a whole and more. But a new leak suggests that the Google Pixel 7a may end up being a little more than anyone expected.

The phone’s codename Lynx (L10) has been hovering in the air ever since developer Kuba Wojciechowski dug up the Android 13 QPR1 Beta 1 source code. It was thought that this mysterious device could be the Pixel Ultra or the Pixel Mini. However, a new leak from Wojciechowski indicates that this device is actually the Pixel 7a.

On Twitter, the developer claimed that they investigated the device’s camera drivers and found references to “Pixel 22 Mid-range” compared to “Pixel 22 Premium” on the “Pixel 7/Pro”. This seems to indicate that we are definitely dealing with a Pixel 7a.

Along with this information, Wojciechowski says that sources have told them that the Pixel 7a could have a 90Hz 1080p display. This refresh rate would be the highest refresh rate ever done on any A-series device. Another thing the first might be is the 5W wireless charging.

In addition, it seems that the Pixel 7a may see a change in the camera setup. There have been rumors that Lynx could have a GN1, IMX787, and IMX712 lens. However, leaker Wojciechowski says the GN1 has been removed and the camera sensors are “now referred to as ‘l10_wide’ (IMX787) and ‘l10_UW’ (IMX712) without a dedicated telephoto lens.”

If these rumors are true, the Pixel 7a may see a significant improvement over its predecessor. However, all of this is very exciting. For a phone that’s unlikely to launch anytime in the next six months, we sure already know a lot about it. At this rate, stay tuned for leaked offers any day now
