Google Pixel 6a smartphone is confirmed to launch in India. The latest mid-range Pixel phone was announced at the Google I/O 2022 keynote on Wednesday, and on the sidelines of the event, Google shared this update via its official Twitter handle.
Pixel 6a will be the first Pixel smartphone to launch in India after the Pixel 4a. Google avoided launching the Pixel 5 and the Pixel 6 series in the country owing to its lack of 5G network and penetration.
But the market has rapidly changed in the past few years, which seems to have compelled Google to enter the arena, and go up against the likes of the latest Apple iPhone SE 2022 and other mid-range flagships from brands like Xiaomi, Realme and OnePlus in the country.
Google Pixel 6a India Price Expected
Google Pixel 6a price announced at the keynote was $449 (Rs 34,700 approx) and you only have one model of the phone. Going by the current exchange rate and add-on taxes could push the figure closer to Rs 40,000, where it will face stiff competition. Anything beyond Rs 50,000 will make it a hard sell for buyers in the country.
