Introducing Google’s Latest Midrange Phone: The Pixel 7A
Google has released its latest midrange phone, the Pixel 7A, which offers several features from the like-numbered flagship model, but at a lower price. With a smaller 6.1-inch display, the Pixel 7A is Google's newest mid-price phone and follows the company's playbook of releasing a more affordable yet still impressively specified version of its current model line a few months after the original launch. The device makes no compromises despite its affordable price, featuring a 6.1-inch 1080p display with a 90Hz refresh rate and the Tensor G2 chip powering the experience. The upgraded 64 MP camera is backed by a 13 MP ultrawide companion, and the phone includes a 4,385mAh battery.
The Pixel 7A is Google's latest attempt to repackage last year's phones into a more affordable device, and it has received positive reviews. The device has a decent battery life, with the smaller 4,300mAh battery said to last an entire day. The phone also supports the same 18W charging found on the Pixel 6A and offers support for Qi wireless charging. However, there is no charger included in the box.
The Pixel 7A's camera array is one of its biggest upgrades, featuring a 64-megapixel wide camera, the highest megapixels of any phone camera among the under $500 phone class. The phone's night-time capabilities are also impressive, with the Pixel 7A's Night Sight shots producing brighter and sharper images than those from the Pixel 6A in a fraction of the time.
The Pixel 7A also includes support for wireless charging, which is not found on many budget phones, giving the device an edge over its competitors. The device is available in Charcoal, Sea, Snow, and a Google Store-exclusive Coral color option. The Pixel 7A is priced at $499, $50 more than its predecessor, the Pixel 6A, which launched last year. It will be available in several countries and is up for orders now.
