Amazon now lets you register interest for the Google Pixel 7a

Now that the Pixel 7 series is on sale, there are two Pixel devices remaining in the rumor mill – the foldable, which may or may not be a myth, and the next “a” phone, which is very much a reality. In fact it’s arrival isn’t too far according to Amazon. The online retail giant is already letting its users subscribe for the upcoming announcement.

Now, it doesn’t say when the Pixel 7a will be unveiled or anything about it, but it shouldn’t be long. The Pixel 6a has been out since July of this year, months after the 6 and 6 Pro came out. So, it’s still a fairly fresh model, but Google has a new Tensor chip and a new design for the “visor” camera island, so a redesigned “a” phone wouldn’t be out of place.

One rumor did claim that the 7a is slated for an early 2023 release, so it’s possible that we are in for a wait. That same rumor also claimed that Google has ordered 4 million units of the “a” phone, it must have a lot of faith in it.

We’ve heard of the Pixel 7a through code names – the Pixel 7 is “Panther”, the 7 Pro is “Cheetah” and the 7a is “Felix”. And if tradition holds, the 7a will have a smaller display than the vanilla Pixel 7, so it should be 6.0-6.1”.

One thing to note is that Amazon refers to the “Pixel 7a family” as if there is more than one model. The 5a and 6a already have 5G, so this isn’t a 4G/5G thing – are we waiting for a Pixel 7a and 7a XL?

All we can do now is subscribe and wait for Amazon to reveal some info on the Pixel 7a – it wouldn’t be the first time the retailer has published pages for phones that were meant to stay under wraps.
