"Google Pixel 6a has Tensor chipset and known camera"

Three months after the launch of the Google Pixel 5a, rumors about the Pixel 6a are already beginning to pour in. While earlier rumors still talked about a Snapdragon processor, there are now new rumors that contradict this.

Because according to sources close to 9to5Google, the Google Pixel 6a will simply get the same chipset as found in the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro: Google Tensor. And the camera is also an old friend of ours.

It is reportedly the same 12.2 megapixel camera as in the Pixel 5; the Sony IMX363. Google used this camera sensor ever since the Pixel 3 and it turns out to be perfectly capable of taking good pictures. Especially in combination with Google's smart HDR algorithm. And the Tensor processor can deal with that fine and effortlessly.

Tensor specific features

That Google also uses the Tensor processor in the Pixel 6a is not strange. Why wouldn't it? They have invested a lot of time, energy and money to develop their own processor and then you prefer to use it as much as possible. This automatically also means that the Pixel 6a is just as powerful as the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro. Perhaps the entry-level Pixel will get less RAM memory, though.

Thanks to the application of Tensor, we expect exclusive Pixel features like Magic Eraser, Face Unblur and Motion Mode to come to the 6a as well. Previously released images already showed that the 6a largely resembles the other models in the Pixel 6 series. So on the back, we will find a camera bar here as well. With 6.2 inches, the device will only be slightly smaller.
