One of the major criticisms related to the Pixel 6a, which was unveiled in May, was that it was not equipped with a display with a decent refresh rate. Now Google has apparently paid attention to this feedback; Because the new information published by a whistleblower named Kuba Wojciechowski on Twitter shows that the Pixel 7a will have a 90 Hz FullHD+ panel made by Samsung.
The leaker also checked the phone’s camera drivers and found that the company’s Pixel 7a camera settings are called “Pixel 22 Mid-range.”
The Pixel 7a was initially reported to be codenamed ‘lynx’, with cameras consisting of GN1, IMX787 and IMX712 sensors. However, the GN1 sensor has been removed from the code and now there will be only two sensors known as “l10_wide” (IMX787)” and “l10_UW” (IMX712)”. This means that the main camera of the Pixel 7a will use the IMX787 sensor and the ultra-wide camera will use the IMX712 sensor.
Pixel 6a was released with two rear cameras; But using a better sensor for the main camera (IMX363 vs IMX787) in the Pixel 7a should lead to better images.
It is said that the Pixel 7a will also be equipped with wireless charging, which was not supported in its previous generation. However, its charging speed will apparently be limited to only 5 watts. The Pixel 5a uses a 3.5 mm headphone jack, which was removed from the Pixel 6a; So, it remains to be seen if Google will bring it back to the Pixel 7a.
