The Google Pixel 6a was launched in May last year at $449, and the phone featured the Google Tensor chip, IP67 certification, an under-display fingerprint sensor, superb cameras, and more. Google Pixel 7a has been in the news for months, and today, the company announced its launch date. The Pixel 7a is launching on May 11 in the Indian market and will be available via Flipkart.
We know everything about the Pixel 7a, so the phone has a 6.1-inch OLED display with a Full-HD+ resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate. This is an upgrade over the 60Hz OLED display on the Pixel 6a, which was one of the biggest cons of that phone. The chipset is Tensor G2, the same SOC which powered the Pixel 7 series. For better security, the phone has the Titan M2 security chip.
Google Pixel 6a is getting a new 64MP sensor for the primary camera, compared to a 12MP sensor on the Pixel 6a. The ultrawide camera also gets a new 13MP sensor. The selfie camera has a 13MP sensor, up from 8MP last year.
The battery is 4,400mAh (10mAh smaller than last year), and there is 20W wired charging, up from 18W last year. Google also added wireless charging in the Pixel 7a, making it the first A-series device with this feature.
Finally, the price is expected to be $499 for the US, which translates to around ₹40,000. But, as we have seen in the past, Google prices its phones higher in the Indian market. The Pixel 6a launched at $449 in the US and was launched in India at ₹43,999. So, if the same trend continues this year, the Pixel 7a could be launched at around ₹45-47K.
