Reliable tipster Steve Hemmerstoffer (@OnLeaks) has shared rendered images of the upcoming Google Pixel 6A, which suggest that the device will be ditching the 3.5mm headphone jack.
Same as its predecessor, the Pixel 5A, the upcoming device is the budget counterpart of the flagship Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro launched in October 20.
According to the images shared by OnLeaks and first reported by 91Mobiles, the mid-ranger will resemble the flagship models’s black rear camera bar, centered hole-punch selfie camera, on-screen fingerprint scanner, and a USB-C port at the bottom.
And just like its upscale version, the Pixel 6A won’t have the analog jack. It’s a big change from both the Pixel 5A 5G and Pixel 4A that both come with a separate earphone jack.
If proven true, users of the upcoming mid-ranger would have to settle using its USB-C port both for charging and listening to audio, apart from its loudspeaker or their own wireless earbuds.
Apart from a modest system, the Pixel 6A is also expected to have a smaller build than its upscale counterparts with a 6.2-inch OLED screen.
