We're looking forward to the full launch of the Google Pixel 6a on July 28, but that's still a long way off. In the meantime, another unboxing video has surfaced giving us a close-up look at this new mid-range smartphone from Google.

The Unbox comes from @anjangz (Opens in a new tab) on TikTok (via 9to5Google (Opens in a new tab)), and it provides everything you'd expect from an Unbox. There are actually four units included in the short demo, all in the Charcoal gray version of the phone.

We get a brief shot of the phone booting up, but there's no preview of the software interface. We take a look inside the package, where a USB cable and a USB adapter are clearly visible.

This isn't the first Pixel 6a unboxing to catch our eye; we saw another one last month on one of Google's official YouTube channels in France. This clip has since been removed from the web, so how long it will last remains to be seen.

Although the new TikTok images don't reveal anything we don't already know about the phone, the Google Tensor processor gets some prominent recognition inside the box, showing just how important the chipset is to Google phones.

Google introduced the Pixel 6a at Google IO 2022 and announced its existence on May 11. Pre-orders start (at least in Australia and the US) on July 21, and the phone will set you back $449 / £399 / AU$749.

Analysis: what we know about the Google Pixel 6a

Google gave us a lot of information about the Pixel 6a, much more than it gave us about the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, so we know a lot about it before it goes on sale worldwide on July 28.

The phone will feature a 6,1-inch OLED display with a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels and a 60Hz refresh rate. It has an IP67 rating attached to it, which means the Pixel 6a is dust and water resistant, but you do not. get any wireless charging.

Under the hood we have the aforementioned Google Tensor chipset, the same one found in the Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, and it's joined by 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. As for the camera, there is a 12.2 MP + 12 MP dual-lens camera on the back and an 8 MP camera on the front.

There are no variants in terms of specifications, but you can choose the smartphone in three different colors: Charcoal (grey), Chalk (white) and Sage (green). Once we get our hands on the device, we'll of course give you our own verdict.
