Relying on benchmarks alone to get to know a smartphone is never a good idea, even more so when it comes to identifying the technical specifications of a model not yet presented as Google Pixel 6a.
Yet a benchmark regarding the next smartphone Made by Google mid-range has appeared in recent days and has not revealed particularly surprising information – regarding SoC, RAM and more -, therefore it could be considered rather reliable.
Google Pixel 6a: Tensor, RAM and more from the benchmark
The first leak he would like dates back to November last year Google Pixel 6a equipped with a series SoC Tensor like the one present in its big brothers Google Pixel 6 and Google Pixel 6 Pro. While the SoC of the latter, identified as GS101, has been described far and wide, Google has not yet officially talked about new versions coming. To the above, it should only be added that the new 2022 mid-range is internally identified with the code name Bluejay.
After the strangest of apparitions, Google Pixel 6a is back to being talked about for the transition to Geekbench 5: the benchmark shows the commercial name of the smartphone as Model and Model ID, while the name “bluejay” appears under the motherboard item and the chip Governor is “sched_pixel”, online with other Pixels with Google Tensor.
The CPU information section is identical to that of the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, with two high-performance 2.8GHz ARM Cortex-X1 cores, two 2.25GHz Cortex-A76 mid-layers, and four more efficient Cortex cores. -A55. As for the performance, both those in single-core and those in multi-core are in line with expectations and do not offer surprises.
Another readable data is that relating to the RAM memory, which amounts to 5.43 GB, therefore 6 GB like the predecessor Google Pixel 5a and less than the 8 GB of Pixel 6 and 12 GB of Pixel 6 Pro. A small compromise that also reflects the different positioning of the new model.
At this point, given that the camera has already been mentioned, it remains to be seen if Google Pixel 6a will really arrive late.
