Google hasn’t introduced the Pixel 7A however somebody already has it

I can’t fairly say it was inevitable, however — in a number of the least stunning but amusing tech information on this planet — a Vietnam gadget fanatic has managed to acquire a developer unit of the unannounced Pixel 7A smartphone.

However I digress. Vietnam’s Zing Information (by way of Droid Life) has some stellar snapshots of the brand new cellphone, exhibiting that it’s clearly totally different from the prevailing Pixel 7 and seven Professional and its predecessor, the Pixel 6A. It’s bought the distinctive steel digicam bar discovered on the 7-series telephones however with a smaller 6.1-inch show and twin 12-megapixel cameras as a substitute of the 50-megapixel important sensor on the 7 and seven Professional. You possibly can see two antenna cuts on the highest as a substitute of 1, spaced nearer collectively than on the Pixel 6A, with a glass and steel body.

We haven’t seen this combo of antenna cuts and steel digicam shelf earlier than.

There’s nonetheless no 3.5mm audio jack, solely a single SIM slot, and it’s not clear if the machine has eSIM. However it’ll possible nonetheless have IP67 water and dirt resistance since Google’s bought an O-ring on the SIM tray.

Intriguingly, the proprietor instructed Zing Information that it has an choice to refresh the display screen at 90Hz, which might be a giant enchancment for Google’s midrange cellphone. Modders found that the sooner Pixel 6A technically shipped with a 90Hz display screen — mine is operating at 90Hz proper now — however Google has but to formally assist it, and the mod provides my display screen an annoying inexperienced tint.

Right here’s hoping, however don’t be stunned if the 90Hz refresh fee and the neat sample beneath this cellphone’s glass again are each unique to the developer prototype. Zing Information says Google remotely locked the cellphone after screenshots leaked on the internet. Professional tip: don’t publish screenshots that present your machine’s distinctive serial quantity.

Google is prone to announce this cellphone at its Google I/O developer convention on Might tenth.
