    Has anyone heard anything about the Pixel 6a and/or is considering getting it? There is an article I found on my Google Newsfeed about the 6a's launch being delayed 'til July -- ironically written by Android Central!

    I may actually consider the 6a -- not sure. It's on my list!

    I read that it will come with the old cameras (Pixel 5, 5A) and not the camera/sensor in the P6 line.

    That may not necessarily be a bad thing, if you really like taking macro shots. The P6's bigger sensor means poorer macro shots (even if you try to emulate macro by holding the phone farther away and use zoom). I still love my 6 Pro, but that's one of the negative points in comparison to my old Pixel 3 XL and 3a XL ... (but to balance things out, the telephoto is friggin' awesome!)

    Pixel 5A won a blind camera test set up by Marques Brownlee, beating Pixel 6 Pro and Apple 13 Pro on the way to victory.

    Hey, if it ain't broke...

    Well, 5a owner here and the camera has been great. I don't have a 6 to compare with but as others have said, don't change things just for the sake of changing things. Enough Pixel changes already since I'm sure the 6a will feature proprietary Tensor SOC and that optimization should be the focus now along with 3G-5G transition.....

    Overall I'm really happy with my Pixel 5's camera, so I think keeping things similar isn't a bad thing! Even when I take a normal photo and zoom in later and crop, I'm impressed with the results!

    My wife and I are considering replacing her Pixel 5 with a 6a, if there is one (I hope there is). A lot depends on how big the 6a is, whether she likes it.

    Since I expect the 6a to be first of the "a" mid-tier line to use Tensor SOC, I'm expecting some bug carryover from 6 introduction. I'd wait for either 7 or 7a depending on pricing and timing needs.

    Size is definitely a factor for me, too. Hopefully we learn more about the Pixel 6a soon!

    I have no issues with my P6, so I'm comfortable buying a 6a if she wants one.

    That's cool. I'm not an early adapter but if you are, I'm looking forward to 6a reviews... Good luck

    I'm also considering, but not sure. There's still a lot of unknowns like, will it release in May, will it have a 90 Hz display, a solid battery and a manageable 6.2"display.
    If those wants could be met along with a great price tag, I'm in!
    That would help keep me from wearing out my P6P prematurely.

    I edited the 5.2" display to 6.2". That was a typo. No way would I want a display that small. Haha.
    Thanks for pointing that out swebb.

    I expect it will offer everything you noted, except the screen size. 5.2" is incredibly small in today's world. Even the iphone mini is larger at 5.4". '

    Here's a new link! Tensor chip with 6.2" screen! And it's keeping the original design of the 6 line.
