The Google Pixel 7A has been the subject of leaks and rumors for some time now, with renderings and real-life photos already circulating online. The phone’s hardware specifications have also been revealed.
However, it seems that a prototype of the phone has recently surfaced on eBay. Although we’re talking about a midrange model that shouldn’t cost more than $500, it was sold for a colossal sum of over $2,500 on eBay. Below are the details.
The auction, which started at $1,650, ended up reaching $2,550 yesterday. It appears that the phone was sold. The user who posted the announcement also provided photos of the phone. We can see that the renderings were accurate, and the phone doesn’t differ significantly in terms of design from its predecessor (Pixel 6A).
Moreover, the test unit seems to be locked by Google. It’s even more surprising that the phone was sold since it’s not functional. However, it wouldn’t be surprising to see this unit in a YouTube video from UnboxTherapy or another content creator.
On the back, we can see an interesting pattern and a different logo where the “G” will be located once the official debut takes place. We also learned that the Pixel 7A comes with 8GB of Samsung LPDDR5 next-generation RAM and 128GB of storage.
The phone is expected to debut at the Google I/O 2023 event on May 10 and will be available in colors such as “Arctic Blue,” “Carbon,” and “Cotton.” The Google Pixel 7A will feature the Tensor G2 processor, a 6.1-inch OLED display with Full HD+ resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate. On the back, there will be a dual camera with a 64MP wide sensor and a 12MP ultrawide sensor.
It’s rumored that the phone will cost around $500 or €500, and deliveries will start in mid-June. Despite the leaked prototype being sold at a much higher price, fans of the Google Pixel series will still have to wait a little longer to get their hands on the new model.
