Google Announces New Pixel 6a Phone – IGN

As part of its annual Google I/O event, Google has officially announced the third phone in its Google Pixel 6 series — the Pixel 6a.

The Pixel 6a will launch on July 21 and will retail for $449. Like the other two phones in the lineup, the Pixel 6a does include the Tensor AI chip and will include features, such as Magic Eraser, which will allows you to remove unwanted objects from your photos, such as a photobomber.

Alongside the announcement of a third phone in the Pixel 6 series, Google also confirmed that it plans to release the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro smartphones this fall. While not a ton of details were shared on the next generation of Pixel smartphones, Google did share a few images of what both devices will look like as seen in the screenshot below.

Google will launch the Pixel 7 series sometime this fall.

The Pixel 6 and 6 Pro launched last October and has become the fastest-selling Pixel phone yet, according to Google. In our Pixel 6 review, we praised the phone’s cameras and competitive pricing, rewarding the device with a nine on our review scale.

In comparison, the Pixel 6 Pro received a 10 out of 10, with my colleague Kevin Lee praising the fact it offered a ton of features commonly found in high-end smartphones, such as a 120Hz refresh rate, stellar cameras, and superb battery life, all while keeping the price under $1,000.
