Although Google won’t begin selling the Pixel 6a for another two months, an official unboxing video offers a brief view of the fingerprint sensor located beneath the display, and the box itself sports some quite intriguing Tensor branding.
Google Retail Training France published an unlisted video (through Reddit ) that includes an unboxing and hands-on with the Pixel 6a. Given the absence of a power adaptor, the packaging is quite small, much like the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro. However, from a distance, the box sides do not seem to have accents that match the color you received. (The A-Series is probably trying to cut costs by losing some of its quirkiness.)
When you raise the lid, the only protective layer is once more just a sheet on the display, with the back plain and facing you. The Quick Switch Adapter and UBC-C cable are located beneath the phone (USB-A to USB-C dongle). Instead of being held together by a sleeve, the Quick Start Guide and warranty booklets are now stored in a box that also includes the SIM removal tool.
Intriguingly, the container reads Pixel 6a and Google Tensor along with a visual representation of the processor. Uncertain if that is the same one as found on the Google Store . The firm is particularly interested in the public knowing what powers the phone.
The under-display fingerprint sensor is demonstrated in this unboxing at 1:56, which is another interesting section (video embed below is queued to that moment). In contrast to the 6 and 6 Pro, the Pixel 6a, according to Google, has a new component, and we now have our first glimpse at it in advance of launch. It appears to be quick enough and, hopefully, endures under all circumstances.
We quickly glance at the Sage and Charcoal variants as well as the thinner bar housing 12.2 MP dual pixel wide and 12 MP ultrawide cameras in this video, which was filmed on Tuesday, April 26 according to the Pixel Launchers At a Glance widget. The 3D thermoformed composite back and camera bar have a few smudges and other marks already.
