Google leaks Pixel 6A name in, among other things, coloring book
A Google-produced coloring book may have just offered the first official mention of the Pixel 6A, the rumored affordable follow-up to last year’s Pixel 6 and 6 Pro flagships. Droid-Life reports. The coloring book was sent alongside a Nest Audio smart speaker to members of Google’s Pixel Superfans group, which was launched last year to provide a “VIP experience for Pixel lovers”, including the access to “limited edition swag”.
Coloring book images shared by Droid-Life show a variety of black-and-white sketches of Google devices such as phones, smart displays, and security cameras that require color. A table of contents lists a “Pixel 6A”, a phone that Google has never mentioned publicly. Unfortunately, pages 6 and 7 do not show the phone.
It wouldn’t be the first time an unreleased Google phone has been mentioned in an unusual place. For example, a reference to the Pixel 5A (itself an affordable sequel to the Pixel 5) appeared in the metadata of a photo posted on one of Google’s R&D blog posts. Google usually takes an unusual approach to announcing its phones, tweeting out images and confirming details months before their official launches.
Of course, it’s perfectly possible that a mention of a Google Pixel 6A was just a typo. But as leaks have started to emerge about the unannounced device, it seems safe to assume that such a phone is on the way, especially since the Pixel 3, 4 and 5 have all been followed by devices. of the more affordable A-series.
As for what form the Pixel 6A might actually take, leaked renders from November suggest it will have a similar overall design to the Pixel 6 with a black camera bar on the back, but with a smaller overall design. It reportedly uses the same Google Tensor processor as the Pixel 6, but will feature a lower resolution 12.2-megapixel main camera, compared to the 6’s 50-megapixel sensor. headset, which is a shame given that this feature was a staple of Google’s previous A-series phones.
Google did not immediately respond to The edgerequest for comment. If you want to try out the Google Pixel-themed coloring book (without the Pixel 6A mention), Google has an online version that you can try here.
