Full Story

Oh boy, Google’s done it again. Their worst-kept secret of 2024 (yep, we’re already there) is making waves, and let me tell ya, it’s a doozy. The Pixel 8a is all over the internet, thanks to a fresh info dump. And guess what? The big reveal’s still a fortnight away. Talk about an eager beaver, right?

Now, with the US pricing no longer a mystery (thanks to a leak that’s as credible as they come), we’re practically drowning in details. Enter Evan Blass, aka @evleaks. This guy’s the LeBron James of tech leaks. If you’re doubting the info, just one look at the leaked images should do the trick.

Let’s dive into what’s cooking with the Pixel 8a. It’s all about AI, baby. Those leaked slides? They’re probably legit and show Google’s game plan for their next mid-ranger. Though, the English translation’s a bit rough—feels like it went through Google Translate after a night out in Tokyo.

Magic Eraser, Audio Magic Eraser, Best Take, Circle to Search, and the Gemini assistant (you might know it as Bard) are the stars of the show. All this wizardry is powered by the Tensor G3 processor—the same brain behind the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro. Cameras? Oh, we’re talking a beefy 64MP and a nifty 13MP duo at the back.

Specs, specs, specs. IP67 rating for water and dust resistance, Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for that extra toughness, and a battery that just won’t quit. Up to 24 hours of juice, or 72 if you’re really stretching it with the Super Battery Saver mode. And the rumor mill suggests a 4,500mAh battery, a slight bump from the Pixel 7a.

Storage and RAM? The crystal ball says 128 and 256GB options, with a solid 8GB of RAM. And here’s the kicker: Android 14 straight out of the box, with a promise of updates and security fixes for a jaw-dropping seven years. Though, let’s not get ahead of ourselves—Google’s been a bit vague on the specifics.

Color me intrigued, as today’s leaks also tease the Pixel 8a in four vibrant colors. But wait, there’s a curveball—a separate leak hints at five case options. Does that mean a fifth color? Eh, probably not. Expect the usual suspects: black, white, blue, and green. Sorry, no orange this year.

And who’s bringing you this treasure trove of info? Adrian, your friendly neighborhood tech enthusiast. From the Nokia 3310 days to now, he’s seen it all. Despite juggling dad duties and a passion for tech, he’s your go-to for everything mobile. And yes, he’s got a soft spot for mid-rangers, saving him from an empty wallet and a house full of overpriced gadgets.
