We’ve already heard a lot about Google’s Pixel 6a, but it looks like the phone is set to launch earlier than the last few models. According to a trusted tipster, Google’s Pixel 6a will see a release date sometime in May.
According to to Max Jambor, a fairly reliable source with a good track record, Pixel 6a is set to debut sometime in May 2022, pushing its release date much earlier than the last two Pixel a-series devices.
Google’s Pixel 4a debuted in August 2020 due to pandemic-related delays, and Pixel 5a saw the same launch window along with severely limited availability. However, there is a precedent for Google launching a device in the a-series in May, as that was when the original Google Pixel 3a debuted. In fact, that device was launched on stage by Google I / O, which seems possible for Google to repeat with this new device.
Google Pixel 6a is expected to pick up on what Google Pixel 6 started with a redesign and the use of a Google Tensor chip with a smaller camera compared to the flagship models. This is also expected to be Google’s first budget unit without headphone jack.
Meanwhile, it is also rumored that Google is launching its first Pixel-branded smartwatch within the same window, according to another recent rumor from Jon Prosser. We also just reported on Google having developed a new Chromecast device to be launched this year.
