Google Pixel Phone Spotted on Certification Site With 5,000mAh Battery, Could be Pixel 8a


The Google Pixel 8 series, with the base Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro models, was unveiled in October 2023. Both these handsets are expected to be joined by the Pixel 8a models. The company has not yet confirmed the smartphone, but it has surfaced online several times. Over the past few months, details about the alleged phone have suggested some expected features and design elements. A new report indicates that the Google Pixel 8a, expected to launch later this year, was spotted on a certification site, hinting at details of the handset's battery.

A report by 91Mobiles claims that a Google Pixel phone with model number GH2MB has been spotted on the UL Demko certification website. The listing suggests that the phone may come with a battery with a rated capacity of 4,942mAh, which is likely to be listed with a normal capacity of 5,000mAh. The report says that this model could be Google Pixel 8a. This suggests a considerable upgrade compared to the Google Pixel 7a's 4,385mAh battery.

However, the report says that since Google is known to pack big batteries in its flagship models, this listing could also be a Google Pixel 9 series handset. For example, the Pixel 8 Pro has a 5,050mAh battery, while the base Google Pixel 8 model has a 4,575mAh battery.

Google Pixel 8a is expected to be announced at the company's I/O event in May this year. The alleged model is expected to support 27W wired charging and measure 152.1mm x 72.6mm x 8.9mm in size. The leaked retail packaging of the handset shows it in a black color option, with a dual camera setup with a horizontally arranged LED flash on a raised, visor-like camera module. Earlier, leaked renders of the smartphone were revealed with a similar design to the base Pixel 8 model.

Google Pixel 8 launched in India for Rs. Rs 75,999 for the 8GB + 128GB option, while the 8GB + 256GB model was listed at Rs. 82,999. Pixel 8 Pro is priced at Rs. 1,06,999 for the 12GB + 128GB variant and the high-end 12GB + 256GB option is marked at Rs. 1,13,999.
