We’re still getting over the hype surrounding the Google Pixel 8 phones. These are the latest flagship offerings from Google, and they’ve proven to be exciting phones. However, it’s never too early to talk about leaks of future devices. Thanks to a LinkedIn post, we have some leaked images of a Pixel 8a dummy.
Since we’re easily half a year from the launch of this device (and, we can’t technically say that it’s guaranteed to come out), you’ll want to take this news with a grain of salt. We’re talking about extremely early information. Between now and the launch, anything could change. It’s important to remember that.

If history is any indicator, we should expect the new budget-friendly Pixel to come out sometime in early Summer 2024. In the past, the “a” versions of Google’s Pixel phones have always reflected their premium siblings. So, the Pixel 8a is expected to be a spitting image of the Pixel 8 Proper.
The aluminum dummy spotted on LinkedIn reinforces that notion. We see that the dummy retains the rounder corners that we got with the Pixel 8 phones this year. Also, we see that iconic camera visor that’s characterized the Pixel line over the past two years. It looks about as wide as the Pixel 8’s, as we even see where the two lenses have been etched in.
Moving to the front, we see what looks like a thick bezel running all the way around the phone. Google’s phones aren’t quite known for their paper-thin bezels, so we should be surprised if this reflects how the phone will look when it launches. Still, you don’t want to bet on it.
Looking at the phone from the sides, we see that the camera visor is notably thin. It’s not quite flush with the body, but it’s definitely slimmer than what we saw with the Pixel 8 phones. However, the body of the phone looks rather thick compared to other Pixel phones. So, the camera visor might be thinner because of that.
In any case, this is one of the first major leaks of the Pixel 8a. They will heat up as time goes on.
