The Google Pixel 6a has made its Geekbench debut with a Google Tensor chipset under the hood. It manages to score 1,050 and 2,833 in the single and multi-core test, respectively. Other specs include 6 GB of RAM and Android 12.

Even though it could arrive a tad late, there is enough evidence online to suggest that the Pixel 6a is a real thing. Rumours from earlier speculated that it would run Google's in-house Tensor SoC, and now, that has been confirmed by the Pixel 6a's first-ever Geekbench listing. Its core configuration is all too familiar, with two ARM Cortex-X1 cores clocked at 2.8 GHz, two Cortex-A76 cores at 2.25 GHz and four Cortex-A55 cores at 1.8 GHz.

The Pixel 6a, codenamed "Bluejay", scores 1,050 in Geekbench's single-core test and 2,833 in its multi-core test. These numbers sit in like with the Geekbench scores of other Google Tensor-powered smartphones such as the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. Its first Geekbench showing is nothing short of impressive, and the Pixel 6a has the potential to do much better with optimized hardware and software.

Other Pixel 6a specifications revealed by Geekbench include 6 GB of RAM and Android 12. The Tensor SoC, combined with Pixel 6-like camera hardware, could position the Pixel 6a as a formidable mid-ranger, especially in the face of smartphones developed by Xiaomi, Realme, Samsung, etc. One can only hope that Google makes it available worldwide unlike its predecessors, which saw a limited release in a handful of regions.
