Pixel 6a name mentioned in Google promotional materials


Google is not good at keeping secrets, it just isn’t. One of its promotional campaigns for the Pixel Superfans group mentions the Pixel 6a by name, though it’s not entirely clear if it shows an illustration of it. You see, members of the exclusive group received promotional materials, including a Nest Audio and a coloring book from Google Hardware.

According to the book’s table of contents, pages 6-7 will allow you to color a Nest Thermostat and a Pixel 6a. Except that page 6 appears to show a Nest Hub and page 7 depicts a Nest Audio. No Pixel 6a in sight.

The good news is that you too can express your inner artist by coloring a virtual version of the book at colors.withgoogle.com. There, on one of the pages, you’ll see this – what appears to be a Pixel 6. And the next page shows the tall silhouette of the Nest Audio.

Keep in mind that the Pixel 6 and 6a can be hard to tell apart. Renders suggest the 6a will look like a smaller version of the 6. Even the dummy looks the same with the visor camera bump, two lenses on the left, and an LED flash on the right.

The Pixel 6a is expected to launch in May with a smaller 6.2-inch OLED display (compared to 6.4-inch on the Pixel 6), the same Tensor chipset, but an older camera setup using a pair of 12 sensors PM.
