According to FCC listings originally obtained by MySmartPrice, Google's upcoming Pixel A-series affordable phones are expected to be introduced in May. The docs outlined features that will most certainly appear in future Pixel phones, like the Pixel 6a, Pixel 7, and Pixel 7 Pro. At least one of the 6a variants will feature mmWave 5G (also known as high-band 5G), making it one of the more cheap 5G phone alternatives on the market.
According to DroidLife, the date of the docs implies that Google will announce the 6a during its I/O developer conference this year, which begins on May 11th. Certain types of equipment must be tested and certified by the FCC before they may be sold in the United States. Given that Google submitted equipment authorization documentation for the 5a in July 2021 (a month before its release), we may anticipate a similar timeline for the 6a. Unlike the 5a, which was solely accessible in the United States and Japan, the new phone is expected to be distributed globally. Because various nations utilize different network bands, smartphone manufacturers typically provide documentation for numerous models in such circumstances.
For those unfamiliar with the Pixel 5a, the $449 phone was released quietly in August 2021, owing to the epidemic. Later that year, Google unveiled the Pixel 6, which we lauded in our review for its innovative AI enhancements and outstanding camera. Because of Google's new Tensor mobile processor, the 6a will most likely include the same AI features as the 6a. The 6a will have the same camera as the 5a, according to renders seen by 9to5Google. This is something to keep in mind if you're looking forward to more complex photographic options. However, if you're searching for a speedy, AI-enabled 5G smartphone with a low-cost design, the incoming Pixel 6a appears to be a good option.
