The Pixel 7a Gets Tensor G2 and New 64MP Camera

Those looking for an affordable Google device now have a new option with the Pixel 7a, which makes a few upgrades over last year’s Pixel 6a while keeping the same price.

To start things off, the Pixel 7a’s 6.1-inch OLED display now has a 90hz refresh rate, matching what that vanilla Pixel 7 has to offer. The Pixel 7a has an IP67 rating, along with an aluminum frame and a plastic back–of which Google claims that it used recycled plastic, glass, and aluminum to build the phone.

Like its more expensive siblings, you are also getting Google’s Tensor G2 processor that’s paired with 8GB LPDDR5 RAM and 128GB UFS 3.1 storage–with Google promising 5 years of security updates. For its dual rear camera setup, you get a new 64-megapixel main camera that can do up to 8x SuperRes zoom and has OIS. Accompanying it is a 13-megapixel ultra-wide camera that has dual-pixel autofocus. Selfies are taken care of by a 13-megapixel shooter.

While the Pixel 7a is technically a mid-range device, its rear camera can record 4k video at up to 60FPS, while the front camera can shoot 4K video at up to 30FPS.

Keeping the lights on is a 4385mAh battery that supports 18w charging–both wired and wireless. There’s no charger included in the box, and you only get a USB 2.0 cable even if the Pixel 7a’s USB-C port is USB 3.2 Gen 2.

The Pixel 7a is priced at Rs 44,000(~Php 29.8k) in India, and there’s no confirmation if Google will bring the Pixel 7a to the Philippines despite previous rumors.
