- The first Google Pixel 6a renders show the expected design.
- If the renders prove to be accurate, the budget-conscious model would be very similar to the Vanilla Pixel 6.
- Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be a headphone jack on board.
Thanks to the reliable Leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer (via 91Mobiles) we now have an idea of what to expect from the Google Pixel 6a. If these leaked renders prove correct, we can expect a phone that is remarkably similar to the Vanilla Pixel 6. In fact, it could be a little even similar.
Check out the renders for yourself below.
Google Pixel 6a Leaked Renders
It seems that Google is done with the “old” designs from Pixels. This phone appears to take on all of the Pixel 6 series design features, which makes sense when you look at the name. However, there has been some speculation as to whether a Google Pixel 6a would come from the designs of older A-series devices (like the Pixel 5a) or from the new line, and these renders seem to answer that question.
Interestingly, this phone comes incredibly close to the Vanilla Pixel 6. There is no headphone jack, a flat 6.2-inch display, an in-display fingerprint sensor, a dual-lens camera on the back and a centered selfie camera cutout on the front. If someone took just one look at it, they would likely think it was a full-fledged Pixel 6.

However, if you know what we know about A-series devices, there are likely many tradeoffs in the phone. For example, it is unlikely to have Google Tensor on board, which would likely also mean that it would be missing some photo features from the main Pixel 6 series. There might be lower specs in other areas to keep the price down.
We have no idea when Google will launch this phone. However, since it is now leaking, it can’t be far – maybe a few months. Stay tuned because we will likely find out more about the Google Pixel 6a before the end of 2021!
