Google comes out with cheaper version of the Pixel 8

Google is introducing a cheaper Android model in its series with the Pixel 8a. We tell you exactly what to expect from the cheaper version of the Pixel 8.

Just as Samsung has the FE version of its smartphones, Google has the a-line with the Pixel. With the Pixel 8a, this tradition continues.

But what exactly can you expect from the 8a? How much less is this device than the regular Pixel 8 and 8 Pro? We take you through.

This is the Google Pixel 8a

As with the regular Pixel 8, the 8a has AI at its core. Consequently, this device contains the exact same chip as the more expensive models: Google’s own Tensor G3. Added to that is 8 GB of RAM and 128 or 256 GB of storage.

The Google Pixel 8a will include the familiar AI features, such as the Magic Eraser for photos and audio, as well as Best Recording. Of course, circle to search cannot be missing either and you will soon also have access to audio emojis.

For the display, Google chose a 6.1-inch Actua OLED with a peak brightness of 2,000 nits and a refresh rate of 120Hz. It is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. On the inside of the device is a 4492 mAh battery that should give you a battery life of 24 hours.
