At the Google I/O which took place last month, Google showed off its new entry-level device, the Pixel 6a. While the release is scheduled for July 28 in the United States, Google as usual does not specifically lock the information.
As proof, a device was put on sale on the Facebook marketplace in Malaysia and it was a YouTuber with nearly 300,000 subscribers who was able to obtain it and thus produce an unboxing video and handling of the device.
True to the ad
Packed with 6GB of RAM and the Tensor chip, the phone seems to deliver what it promises. The video reveals a look similar to that of the Pixel 6. Overall smaller, it is above all the photo module that displays a glaring difference in size by being narrower, but above all much thinner.

The box includes, in addition to the phone, a double USB-C cable and a USB-A to USB-C adapter. Note the absence of a charging block, which is no longer really surprising with current “premium” phones.
Regarding the features, the Pixel 6a benefits from the in-house Tensor chip like the rest of the range, which makes it compatible with advanced functions such as “Real Tone” or even the “Magic Eraser”.
The only downside is that the fingerprint sensor, which is supposed to be more responsive than that of other Pixel 6s, does not seem to be particularly so, but software optimizations can still be made before the official release in just over a month.
