Seems like the much-awaited Google Pixel 6a is set to be launched in India sooner than expected. The tech giant is apparently busy prepping for the launch of the much-awaited Google Pixel 6a in India on July 21 (Thursday), suggests a new leak, and the smartphone would be priced below Rs 40,000 in the country.
Originally unveiled at the tech giant’s annual I/O 2022 Developers Conference, the Pixel 6a was confirmed to launch in India. However, there has been no official word from Google on the launch date. Some leaks in the past few days also suggest that Pixel 6a units have been silently imported into the country, thus, indicating an imminent announcement.
The latest leak on Twitter claims that the Google Pixel 6a would be officially announced in India on July 21 which is tomorrow at a virtual event. More details on that are expected in the next few hours. The tipster also added that the Google Pixel 6a will have a box price of Rs 43,999 in the country, but the actual cost could be around Rs 37,000. The device costs $449 in the US which roughly translates into Rs 35,000. The Pixel 6a will compete with the likes of the newly-launched Nothing Phone 1 and the iQoo Neo 6 among others.
