Last year in October, Google launched Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro. Now, rumours about the potential release of the Pixel 8a have started to surface, suggesting a launch in May. The smartphone was expected to be a mid-range offering, but recent reports indicate that the Pixel 8a might be priced higher than its predecessor, the Pixel 7a. 

It is expected to be available in 128GB and 256GB storage options and could come in four different colour variants, at least in the European Union. The Pixel 8a is rumoured to be powered by a Google Tensor G3 SoC.
