A new Google Pixel 6a leak, certainly the biggest so far, suggests that Google’s next mid-range phone will have a Tensor chipset like those in the Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro! The fresh leak come from 9to5Google’s investigations into the Google Camera app, which contains reference to a device internally codenamed Bluejay – said to be a codename for the Google Pixel 6a. 

The leak means that the Pixel 6a will have the same Google Tensor GS101 chipset as the Pixel 6 is undeniably great, especially as it means the new phone would inherit all the features available only to the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, which include Live Translation and Google Assistant voice typing.
