We expect to see a file Google Pixel 7a It arrives in the coming months, assuming Google sticks to its regular schedule of rolling out mid-range phones among flagships — and the phone was just mentioned on Amazon.
As I mentioned GSMArena (Opens in a new tab)The retail site is letting users sign up for Google Pixel 7a ad updates, indicating that the device is already on the way and could appear sooner rather than later.
We’re not getting any information about the Pixel 7a or any images of it – and there’s no real indication that Amazon has any prior details of the phone – but it seems unlikely that you’ll be able to sign up for updates on a phone that doesn’t exist.
Something worth noting is that Amazon mentions a “batch” of products – does that mean more than one Pixel 7a is on the way? We haven’t seen that for this set of phones since Google Pixel 3a XL back in 2019.
Rumors about the Pixel 7a have been pretty thin on the ground up to this point. there was one male It’s a more compact mid-range phone in the works at Google, but it’s not certain that the phone in question is actually the Pixel 7a.
we saw Google Pixel 7 and the Google Pixel 7 Pro Get a big reveal earlier this month, and all indications are that a file Pixel 8 It will arrive next year. Thus, the Google Pixel 7a fits perfectly in the middle.
Analysis: Getting the timing right
Assuming the Pixel 7a is already on the way, it would be interesting to see what Google does in terms of timing. The past may give us some clues: Pixel 5 It was announced in September 2020, followed by Google Pixel 5a In August of the following year.
Then we got Pixel 6 In October 2021, and Google Pixel 6a In May 2021 – the last phone was already unveiled in Google Internet of Things 2022 So maybe we should expect the Google Pixel 7a to appear in Google IO 2023.
Given that the supply chain has been significantly disrupted by the global pandemic in 2020 and 2021, the Pixel 6a is probably a better indication of timing than the Pixel 5a (which only launched in the US and Japan, don’t forget).
The Pixel 7 smartphones were fully introduced in October of this year, so perhaps May 2023 is the time when the Pixel 7a is most likely to appear. Google hasn’t announced any dates for IO 2023 yet, but there’s no doubt that it will – and we’ll of course cover it in depth as usual.
