Price: The Million-Dollar Question

Let’s address the elephant in the room: the pricing. According to what I heard on the network, Pixel 8a will be priced on par with the Google Pixel 7a. It’s possible to understand that the price tags for the 128 GB variant and 256 GB model are $499 and $559. Here is a question that you might want to ask: for the Indian friends, how much is it going to cost is lower, and we need to see.

Display: A Tasting For The Senses

The Pixel 8a is believed to proudly unveil a stunning 6.1-inch FHD+ OLED display with a body friendly 120Hz refresh rate and an eyeball penetrating 1,400 nits of peak brightness.

Processor: The Human Who Calls The Shots

On the one hand, inside Pixel 8a rumours suggest it will be based on Google’s latest Tensor G3 chipset which includes AI capabilities. Yup, the same refined beast is going to fuel the flagship Pixel 8 hardware. Imagine the amazing futures – AI functions galore, such as the most awaited Circle to Search feature. They also have AI magic tricks for google photos.

Camera: Capturing Life’s Moments

Even though the camera setup is expected to be similar to Pixel 7a, equipped with 64MP image from the main sensor and 13MP wide lens, the software trick is going to be super amazing. But the 13 MP selfie camera is there to take the responsibility, and you’ll simply love it for these shameless self-portrait shots.

Battery And Charging: The Finish Line

Here’s where the Pixel 8a might steal the show: the whisper of a 4,500mAh battery which is slightly bigger in capacity than its predecessor. But wait, there’s more! 27W fast charging might be among the rumours, but until there is an official statement, one can only guess.


If the rumours hold true, the Pixel 8a could be a budget beast, offering:

  • Stunning display featuring silky refresh rate smoothness
  • Leadership-grade AI performance.
  • Impressive battery life (It is possible that it also has faster charging).
  • Continuous camera improvement (enhanced software)

All this and more, without making a dent in your wallet. Indeed, it will be Google’s official announcements, most likely made at the I/O developer conference on May 14, that will separate the wheat from the chaff.
