Here’s how the Google Pixel 6A compares to its biggest competitors

That Pixel 6A is the latest phone to join the competitive upper tier of mid-range phones also occupied by Samsung, Apple and others. Google announced the new phone on stage at its I/O 2022 keynote and only described a few key things about it. The first thing you should know: it doesn’t come out right away. Contrary to many announcements when products are on their way to retailers, this product is not available for pre-order until July 21, 2022, with orders shipping the following week.

Unsurprisingly, this new (and smaller) 6.1-inch Pixel phone borrows many of the same design cues from the more expensive one Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, with increased camera area and two-tone color scheme. The Pixel 6A is a big deal as it’s the first mid-range Google phone to ship with its Tensor processor instead of Qualcomm processors. It will be available in multiple colors but will come with the same 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage whichever you buy.

In case you’re curious how the Pixel 6A might stack up against competing devices like the Samsung Galaxy A53 5G and iPhone SE (third generation) and how it improves over the last-gen Pixel 5A, we’ve just post this to you.

Correction May 11, 5:30 p.m. ET: The spec comparison table says the Pixel 6A supports wireless charging, but it doesn’t. We have updated the table and regret the error.
