You can still go ahead and browse the actual eBay listing. The unit was described as a “very collectible device” by the seller, but they also pointed out that the phone technically doesn’t really work. The Google phone seems to be in great shape, though!
Some of the images from the eBay listing for the Pixel 7a prototype.
By the looks of things, the auction — which had a starting price of $1,650.00 — has been canceled before anyone can actually purchase the phone. We couldn’t find any info regarding if the seller was coerced into canceling the listing, but what we’d really like to know is how did they even happen upon the phone in the first place.
That being said, like any good eBay listing, there were some actually great photos of the unit uploaded. On the back of the phone, we can see what 9to5Google calls “Google’s telltale prototype indicators” and a different logo where the expected G typically sits.
As previously mentioned, the phone doesn’t really boot into Android, but from one of the screenshots, we can gather the following information:
- It is an EVT1.0
- 8GB of LPDDR5 RAM from Samsung
- 128GB of internal storage
While this doesn’t really reveal anything new about the Pixel 7a, it is still a very peculiar case. As much as we’d like to continue on and provide further clarity on how any of this came to be — we don’t know ourselves. But we promise to keep you posted if we find anything out!
