Google’s A-series Pixel phones have routinely ranked among the most popular devices from the company, with affordable prices, intelligent features, and long software support lifespans. And based on what we learned about the Pixel 6a at Google I/O 2022, the newest Google budget phone could be its best yet.

The Pixel 6a will use the same Google Tensor hardware and distinctive camera bump as the Pixel 6, trumping the Snapdragon 765G and ultra-boring design of the Pixel 5a. Despite some key downgrades compared to the Pixel 6, the Pixel 6a will offer tools and speed you rarely find on a mid-range device.
