Google Pixel6a will continue to use Tensorsoc, the camera module will die

Google has released the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro this year, and the Tensor SOC of the self-developed Tensor So has replaced the high-pass scheme that has been used in the past. However, these two high-end models are not all of the Google Pixel 6 series, and then Google will also launch Pixel 6a to the mainstream market to cater to more users.

According to 9TO5GOOGLE, I found that Pixel 6a will still use Google's TenSor SoC and equipped with Android 12 system. Tensor SOC used a three plexic design in the CPU part, including two Cortex-X1 super-core, equipped with Mali G78 GPU, with a TPU for AI computing, and integrated Titan M2 security chip, Samsung 5nm process manufacturing. Google will simplify at Pixel 6a's imaging configuration, and the rear camera will use 12.2MP IMX363 main photos (and Pixel 5a) and 12MP IMX386 super wide angle, the front camera is 8MP IMX355. Although Google's algorithm is very helpful to imaging quality, the reduction in camera specifications will always affect the quality of photo.

The previously exposed Pixel 6a rendering chart showed that the Pixel 6A also continued the cross-strip design of the Pixel 6 series rear camera, but it would be smaller than Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. It is alleged that its size is 152.2 x 71.8 x 8.7 mm, the screen is 6.2-inch OLED, which uses a scheme that hits the hole and the fingerprint unlocked. Pixel 6A is likely to cancel 3.5mm headphone jack, which is different from the past Pixel A series models.

Although Qualcomm has previously stated that it will continue to cooperate with Google to provide Snapdragon series products. However, from Google's reaction, it seems to be firmly on the road of self-developing chips.
