The Pixel 8a could be touted as a phone with a battery capacity of at least 5,000 mAh or 5,040 mAh, as per the UL Demko certification of the battery. While the certification likely belongs to the Pixel 8a, we could see a notable difference compared to the previous Pixel 7a, which featured a battery capacity of 4,385 mAh.

Overall, the information available today remains speculative. Given the number of leaks and real images, we could expect more substantial evidence about Google’s next mid-range phone in the coming months.
