The Google Pixel 6a is the most affordable Pixel phone with a Tensor chipset. This chip, developed by Google, ensures that the camera can take better pictures. But the Pixel 6a is also ideal for those who love a compact phone. We are happy to explain all that to you here.
The Pixel 6a consists of a handheld 6.1-inch display. Like the more expensive models, Google uses an OLED panel with a fixed 60Hz screen refresh rate. The Pixel 6 does 90 Hz and the Pixel 6 Pro even 120 Hz. Animations look a little less smooth as a result, but since Google uses the standard version of Android, the 6a should still feel responsive. Because the Pixel 6a is the cheapest Pixel from the 6 series, it is made of somewhat cheaper materials. For example, the back is plastic, and the front is the slightly outdated Gorilla Glass 3. Fortunately, the whole thing is IP67 waterproof.
Inside the Pixel 6a, we find a Tensor chipset equipped with Titan M2. This chip is designed by Google and optimized for the features it wants to focus on. Security is one of them. That is a good thing anyway because anyone who wants to be the first to get Android updates must have a Google phone. New Android versions come out first for it. Google promises to release Android updates until July 2025. Security updates come in for two more years. Few other Android phones, especially in this price category, emulate it.
On the back of the Pixel 6a, we find a dual camera system; a 12.2MP primary lens and a 12MP ultra-wide angle. A separate zoom lens is missing, but digital zooming is possible. And with the help of some software, that still looks pretty nice. In combination with the Tensor chip, the camera has some exclusive features. For example, face Unblur ensures that faces in blurred photos still look sharp. Via Magic Eraser, you can remove unwanted objects or people from an image. Night Sight is a night mode that allows you to capture the starry sky. And skin colors always look natural, thanks to Real Tone.
