- Google has announced the prices of the Pixel 6a outside the United States.
- It will cost roughly the equivalent of $449 in most countries.
- The Pixel 6a will launch in India later this year, after a nearly two-year hiatus.
One of the most significant hardware announcements at Google I/O was the Pixel 6a, a device that offers flagship performance at a mid-range price. Following Google’s announcement about the price of the device in the US, the company has revealed the price of the Pixel 6a outside the country.
This summer, the Google Pixel 6a is expected to hit 14 regions as a lower-cost alternative to the usual Pixel 6 flagships. In the US, the device will cost $449, which is just above the iPhone SE ( 2022) of similar price. Below is the price for the countries where the Pixel 6a will be available:
- United States (including Puerto Rico): $449
- Canada: CAD 599
- UK: £399
- Australia: 749 Australian dollars
- France: €459
- Germany: €459
- Ireland: €459
- Italy: €459
- Spain: €459
- Japan: ¥53,900
- Singapore: 749 Singapore dollars
- Taiwan: NT$13,990
India is missing from the list. The Pixel 6a will arrive in India later this year, so it’s likely that Google hasn’t locked in pricing yet. The company would compete with some of the best budget Android phones in the region, so it will be interesting to see how competitive it becomes.
Pixel 6a is powered by the same Tensor chip as Pixel 6 flagships, bringing powerful AI features like Magic Eraser and more. It will also come with 6 GB of RMA and 128 GB of storage. Of course, Google had to take some steps with a lower camera resolution and a 60Hz refresh rate screen. Still, you’re getting an OLED panel, and the Tensor chip should be more than capable of producing a picture. Impressive computing power with the phone’s dual 12MP cameras.
The Pixel 6a will launch this summer, with pre-orders starting July 21 for the US and Japan. Color variants will be the same in most countries, with only Ireland and Singapore losing the Sage and Chalk colorways.
