The Pixel 6a runs Google’s own Tensor GS101 chipset, which is powering the Pixel 6 series. It will come with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. The main camera at the back includes a 12MP option coupled with a 12MP ultra-wide camera. The front camera is 8MP.

The phone runs Android 12 out of the box and features a 4,306mAh battery with support for fast charging.
The smartphone also comes with the Titan M2 chip from Google for hardware-level security. It also comes with other Pixel-specific software features such as the Recorder, Live Caption, and Live Translate. It also comes with an Adaptive Battery that can last over 24 hours2 and up to 72 hours when in the Extreme Battery Saver mode — which Google claims is a first for Pixel phones.
