The Google Pixel 6a has appeared on Geekbench, and the page not only shows the performance test results of the device, but the phone appears along with the pixel 6’s running score results. The results confirm the device’s 6GB of ram, which the rumors appear to be accurate, and the page confirms that the Google Tensor SoC will power the device.
The image below can provide a comparison of the two phones. As you can see, the Pixel 6a does a better job than the Pixel 6 in both single-core and multi-core tests. The difference, though, is so small that if you test again, the Pixel 6 might win the 6a in turn.
On the one hand, the phone’s code name is “bluejay”, and as rumored, its amount of memory and SoC model have also been confirmed.
Another tidbit revealed by this list is the operating system we can expect. As expected, the Google Pixel 6a will come with Android 12. The device is thought to be coming out at Google I/O 2022 later this month, so that makes sense.
The Pixel 7 and 7 Pro are the first smartphones that will ship with Android 13, almost certainly. Both phones are not expected to launch until later this year, in September or October, to be precise.
The Pixel 6a is rumored to include a 6.2-inch Full HD+ display. But we’re not sure it’s going to be a 60Hz or 90Hz display, and the rumors also mention its built-in 4800mAh battery, while the camera module could be the same as the Pixel 5a.
Google I/O 2022 will begin on May 11, when Google’s keynote will take place, and the phone may be announced at that time.
