The Google I/O 2022 event and opening press conference is less than a month away. That’s where Google will officially unveil Android 13 as well as other software updates. But it’s also where Google will reveal new hardware, including the Pixel 6a, which is slated to debut during the event. The less expensive Pixel 6 model should arrive in retailers this summer, some months before the Pixel 7 series. And, according to a Pixel 6a benchmark leak, the new mid-range handset will be more interesting than its predecessors.

Is there a Pixel 6a on the way?
In 2019, the first Pixel A-series device was released. The Pixel 3a was a more economical version of the Pixel 3.
The Pixel A models were a huge hit, and Google continued to release more variations. While there’s no official word on whether a Pixel 6a will be released in 2022; there’s no reason for Google to drop the mid-range series.
Furthermore, we’ve already seen a slew of Pixel 6a leaks revealing the phone’s specifications and features. Pixel fans are well aware that rumors about the Pixel line are usually correct. Leaks have always been a problem for Google, and the Pixel 6a is no exception.
Even if Google is unable to release the Pixel 6a immediately following I/O 2022, it is reasonable to expect it to hit shelves this summer. If a recent Pixel 6a benchmark leak is accurate, the Pixel 6a will be Google’s most competitive mid-range smartphone.
The Pixel 6a has reportedly received its first Geekbench 5 score leak. The score suggests that the phone will have a similar performance to the Pixel 6. Moreover, the benchmark listing also confirms that the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6a will have the same SoC. Whereas, the Pixel 6a will only have 6GB of RAM instead of 8GB.
