Google's new Pixel 6a

Coming soon they say!  

Now, the a variants have never really been for me (Canada never did get the 5a if I recall; but we did get 2 of the 4a models, the 4a and the 4a 5G) as I like the full experience and full guts, but for some people they don't need it, and the a models really help save the pocketbook expense of a brand new phone, but allow them to still get top grade equipment and Googley goodness.

Here's what Google filled us in on at IO for the new Pixel 6a model:

  • $599CDN

  • Front camera
    • 8MP (f/2.0, 24mm, 1.12um)
