The Pixel 6a, as most of you know, got announced during Google I/O last month. The phone is not set to arrive until late July. It will become available to pre-order on July 21, and go on sale on July 28.
Because of that, we didn’t see much content about the device. Google did show the phone during Google I/O and everything. It also shared the details. In addition to that, the company’s promo video got discovered, and leaked out ahead of time.
The Pixel 6a gets a lot of screen time in an 11-minute-long unboxing & hands-on video
Other than that, we didn’t see anything post-launch. Well, until now. This video is not in English, though, so chances are you won’t understand much from it, unless you’re from Malaysia. You will get to see the device up-close-and-personal, though.
The source unboxes the phone, and shows what’s in the box. In addition to that, it shows its design in detail, while he also compares it to the Pixel 6 Pro. You’ll get to see the fingerprint scanner in action, and more. All of that in the hands-on video embedded below the article.
Now, in addition to the phone itself, you’re also getting a Type-C to Type-C cable, and a Type-C to USB-A dongle. A SIM ejector tool is also included, along with some paperwork. That’s it, you won’t find a charger on the inside.
The phone has a considerably smaller camera visor than the Pixel 6 Pro
The phone itself has a considerably smaller camera visor on the back, with two cameras inside it. It is shorter and slimmer than the one on the Pixel 6 Pro. That’s something you’ll clearly see in the video, but we’ve also included a screenshot below this paragraph.
The phone is also considerably smaller than the Pixel 6 Pro. It features a 6.1-inch display, compared to a 6.7-inch panel on the Pixel 6 Pro. It can be considered a compact smartphone, considering the size of phones these days.
A fingerprint scanner seems to be rather fast, which is great, as that was one of the main problems with the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro. This phone basically looks like a more compact version of the Pixel 6, this video basically confirmed it.
You’ll get more detail from the aforementioned video, which is placed below.
