The Pixel 6a should soon accompany the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. The name of Google’s next affordable smartphone has made an appearance in a coloring book offered by the manufacturer.
Leaks don’t always hide where you think they are. While it recently launched its Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, Google should soon offer a more affordable smartphone. For its accessible terminals, the manufacturer has become accustomed to adding an “a” and everything suggests that this will continue. The Droid Life site reports that Google may have just confirmed the existence of the Pixel 6A in a coloring book. The Californian firm has indeed sent a Nest Audio speaker and a coloring book to members of its Pixel Superfans program. This group promises to offer a “VIP experience for Pixel lovers”, with privileged access to certain products or content.
In its coloring book, the brand highlights several of its products such as Pixel 6, Nest Hub, Chromecast, Nest Cam or Nest Thermostat. Among its coloring products, Google also mentions the existence of a “Pixel 6a” which has never been publicly mentioned. Expected in pages 6 and 7 of the book, it does not however make any appearance.
Google loves treasure hunts
For now, we have to be content with a name and this is not the first time that Google has sown clues. A reference to the Pixel 5a had been spotted in the metadata of a photo published on one of the manufacturer’s blogs. Mountain View’s communication also differs from that of its main competitors, the brand not hesitating to formalize the design or certain features several months before the launch of a new model. The method aims to avoid the rumors and leaks that have regularly preceded Google’s announcements.
As it stands, it could still be a simple typo or careless mistake. However, this is not the first time that the Google Pixel 6 has been talked about and its technical data sheet even leaked last November. More recently, we learned that this affordable version of the Pixel 6 could see the light of day in the spring. The smartphone should take up the design of its elders in a more compact format and embed a Tensor chip. Its photo part, on the other hand, would be less efficient and closer to the Pixel 5 than to the brand’s latest devices.
In the meantime, it is possible to access the site colors.withgoogle.com to do some coloring.
