Samsung, Apple on their toes after outrageous leak! New Pixel 7a could be phone of the year 2023

Samsung’s Galaxy A series and Apple’s iPhone SE may be some of the best selling mid-range phones in the world, but this does not mean that they are the bestwhere the! That could be especially true in 2023, when Google is expected to launch the new Pixel 7a.

What makes Google’s 2023 mid-range phone particularly intriguing is that, according to leaks and rumoursis now expected to arrive much earlier in the year compared to its predecessors, which would already be a big win…

In reality, Amazon is now letting users subscribe to the upcoming “Google Pixel 7a Family Launch Announcement”, indicating that the Pixel 7a’s launch could be pulled way ahead. The reference to Amazon’s “Pixel 7a family” could even mean there’s more than one Pixel 7a model, which could be a larger Pixel 7a XL, but that’s neither here nor there (for now).

But the leaks and rumors don’t stop there at all, as developer Kuba Wojciechowski has dug deep into Google’s code to find out virtually everything about the new Pixel 7a, and the news is great! After this leak, I’m actually wondering… why would anyone buy the vanilla Pixel 7 or… any other Android phone instead of the Pixel 7a?

So let’s take a look at the specs of the Pixel 7a! Spoiler: this device is a serious contender for the phone of 2023 before the year has even started!

Outrageous camera upgrades and a flagship-quality 90Hz display mean the Pixel 7a could be the best Android phone deal… ever

According to Kuba Wojciechowskithe Pixel 7a’s screen is now expected to match the Pixel 7 when it comes to the refresh rate (90 Hz), which addresses my biggest complaint about the Pixel 6a and its 60 Hz panel. It was about time Google caught up with the Android competition as all phones in this price range now come with 90-120hz displays.

It’s important to note that the Pixel 7a is supposed to have a smaller 6-inch screen, which would make it the perfect choice over the Pixel 7 or Pixel 7 Pro for many people. A compact phone is a valid selling point for users who don’t want to have a brick in their pocket (my primary phone is an iPhone 13 mini).

Major camera upgrades are coming to the budget Pixel 7a

What’s equally exciting is that the Pixel 7a will reportedly launch with the Sony IMX787 primary camera sensor that debuted in early 2022, as well as two Sony IMX712 sensors – one for the ultra-wide-angle camera and one for the selfie shooter (again, that’s all according to Kuba’s code leaks). While the (supposedly) 13MP IMX712 is still unannounced, we already know that the Sony IMX787 is a 1/1.3-inch 64MP sensor that matches the Pixel 7 Pro and Galaxy S22 Ultra for size (not megapixels)! This would be an absolutely huge improvement over the Sony IMX363 that Google used this year in the Pixel 6a and 2017 Pixel 2 and challenge the great flagships!

Google’s plan to compete with Apple and Samsung starts with the Pixel 7a, not the Pixel 7 or Pixel 7 Pro?

Competing with Apple and Samsung for sales and market share is tough. Only a few phone makers (Huawei, Xiaomi) have managed to compete well with the US and South Korean giants over the last decade, meaning Google, as hard as it tries, will take ages to catch up.

However, if there’s one way to impress, spark interest, and sell phones, it’s by making and offering affordable devices that offer incredible value. Huawei and Xiaomi followed the same path to the top a few years ago, penetrating the global market with mid-range phones, and Google may now be trying to do the same!

Pixel 7a Massive Upgrades Leak, Incredibly Excited Android Users Are Guaranteed To Buy It

Watch out, Apple and Samsung! Pixel 7a might be the best phone deal we’ve ever seen; not even Pixel 7 stands a chance (which makes no sense, Google)

Frankly, it’s kind of hard to believe what Google is rumored to be doing with the Pixel 7a. I mean, the leaks we have come from trusted sources with a good track record of providing reliable information, but it all seems Too good to be true…The Pixel 7a is more or less expected to match the Pixel 7 in terms of specs, save for a smaller screen (which many prefer) and a slightly different camera setup that could turn out to be just as good, if not better than that of the vanilla Pixel 7! Of course, the 7a will also include three years of timely software updates and four years of comprehensive security support, making it all the more attractive.

The main question is whether the Pixel 7a will manage to maintain the same $449 price point as the Pixel 6a, given all the major upgrades to come. If so, the 7a might end up being not only the best mid-range phone on the market, but also one of the best Android deals we’ve ever seen. As ever!

Speaking of competition, the main Pixel 7a challenges are ahead Galaxy A54 (we already know what this one will look like), Nothing Phone 2 (we still haven’t heard anything about this one), and the iPhone SE 4. Apple’s mid-ranger is a bit of a wildcard as it’s not 100% sure that it will debut next year. Either way, none of these phones will be able to match the Pixel 7a when it comes to overall value, at least on paper and if the rumors about all of them come true.

Of course, it’s also worth reminding that the Pixel 7a won’t be offered in as many countries as the Galaxy A54 and iPhone SE. Still, major markets like the US, Europe, UK and India should be celebrating!
