Swappasaurus says...

The Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 6 each offer 5G connectivity and are a similar overall size with similar-sized displays. However, the day-to-day user experience will be vastly improved with the Pixel 6. The Pixel 6 display is 6.4” and features Smooth Display (up to 90Hz refresh rate), which isn’t offered on the Pixel 4a 5G. The Pixel 6 is powered by the new Google Tensor chip, and the Pixel 4a 5G is powered by a Snapdragon 765G processor. You also go from a 3885 mAh battery on the Pixel 4a 5G to a 4614 mAh battery on the Pixel 6, and an IP68 rating for water and dust resistance. In contrast, the Pixel 4a 5G did not offer an official IP rating. Other highlights of the Pixel 6 include up to 256GB of storage, an 8MP front-facing camera, and a rear camera array with a 50MP wide camera and a 12MP ultra-wide camera.
