Leaked Google Pixel 8a Box Suggests Smaller Form and Fast 27W Charging
Google’s Pixel 8 lineup, i.e. Google Pixel 8 and Google Pixel 8 Pro, was launched in October 2023. But if we talk about the Google Pixel 8a, then it is expected to be launched in May this year. As we know, the Google Pixel 7a was launched in May last year.
Recently, the box for the Google Pixel 8a has leaked. The recent leak includes the retail box of the new Pixel 8a. On the box, we have an Obsidian Black color variant. The Google Pixel 8a will come in 3 colors, i.e. Obsidian Black, Porcelain, and Bay.
If we see the second picture, then it’s visible that this time as well, we have to buy the charger separately (it isn’t included in the box). Also, the new Google Pixel 8a will support 27W charging, which can be a good upgrade from 18W. But still, it won’t compete with 65W, 80W, 100W, and 150W fast charging phones. The phone is expected to come in two storage variants i.e. 8GB RAM /128GB ROM and 8GB RAM/256GB ROM.
The Google Pixel 8a with model number G6GPR, comes with a dual-back camera setup like the Google Pixel 7a and a little underclocked Tensor G3 chipset. Pixel 8a will also be a mid-range phone and is expected to cost $500 (Rs. 42,999) in India like Google Pixel 7a or $50 more i.e. $550 (Rs. 45716.91).
