Google has confirmed the development of a new way for the upcoming Pixel 8a. In response to a query regarding the Pixel’s battery information on its official forum, the tech giant has revealed its plans to introduce a comprehensive battery information page with the introduction of the Pixel 8a smartphone. Additionally, the company said that the battery information page will be available on Google Pixel 8a smartphones and later models.

While the Mountain View, California-headquartered company hasn’t officially unveiled the device, the moniker recently appeared on one of the company’s support pages, suggesting an imminent launch. Speculations indicate that it could debut at Google’s upcoming I/O event, which is annual, following the pattern of its predecessor, the Pixel 7a, which was introduced during the May 2023 Google I/O conference.

The name “Google Pixel 8a” was spotted on the company’s issuetracker site.
