Evidently there’s a leak in Google’s manufacturing course of. Simply final week, a Pixel 7 prototype appeared on eBay, and one other prototype handed off as a “Pixel 6 Professional” in a Fb Market sale. Now, somebody is attempting (or was attempting) to promote a Pixel 6a on Fb.
The Pixel 6a itemizing, which was found by Technik Information’ Nils Ahrensmeier, was rapidly faraway from Fb Market. But it surely contained photos of a working retail Pixel 6a, which is odd, as this cellphone isn’t presupposed to launch till July twenty first.
This itemizing seems to come back from somebody in Malaysia. And judging by the pretend grass in one of many itemizing’s pictures, this “somebody” is similar “somebody” who posted Pixel 6a unboxing videos on TikTok.
How this particular person acquired a retailed Pixel 6a is a thriller. For what it’s value, all of Google’s upcoming merchandise (the Pixel 6a, Pixel 7, and Pixel Watch) have managed to slide out of factories and into common peoples’ palms. They most likely “fell off the truck,” or no matter, however there’s additionally a small likelihood that Google is deliberately leaking gadgets.
Pre-orders for the Pixel 6a open July twenty first, and based on Verizon, the cellphone ships July twenty eighth. It includes a Tensor processor and different perks from the Pixel 6-series, but it surely solely prices $450.
