The Google Pixel 7a has a pretty modest 4,385mAh battery. It’s not the biggest but it’s enough. Could it be bigger? Sure. If you’re looking for a Pixel smartphone with a larger battery, then perhaps the Google Pixel 8a could be the phone for you.
According to a report from MySmartPrice, they recently discovered a mysterious Google phone on the UL Demko certification website. A sighting this early has led to speculation that this could be the Google Pixel 8a, and according to the listing, the phone could come with a 4,942mAh battery.
This will most likely end up being marketed as 5,000mAh or 5,040mAh. Regardless of how Google wants to spin this, it is a significant upgrade over the Pixel 7a’s battery. It is also bigger than the Pixel 8’s 4,575mAh battery and roughly the same size as the Pixel 8 Pro. This could be good news for those who are looking for a more affordable Pixel handset that offers longer battery life.
That being said, MySmartPrice does note that the listing on the website could also potentially be for the Google Pixel Fold 2. Recent rumors have suggested that the Pixel Fold 2 could launch later than expected. It also might skip the use of the Tensor G3 in favor of the G4. Either way, if it is the Pixel 8a, we should have more details in the coming months.
