- Google has announced pricing for the Pixel 6a outside of the US.
- It costs about $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 brings flagship performance at a mid-range price point. Following Google’s announcement of US pricing for the device, the company has now announced Pixel 6a pricing outside of the country.
This summer is the Google Pixel 6a is expected to be available in 14 regions as a lower-cost alternative to the regular Pixel 6 flagships. In the US, the device costs $449, which is just over the comparable price iPhone SE (2022). Below are the pricing for countries where the Pixel 6a will be available:
- United States (including Puerto Rico): $449
- Canada: CA$599
- United Kingdom: £399
- Australia: AU$749
- France: €459
- Germany: €459
- Ireland: €459
- Italy: €459
- Spain: €459
- Japan: 53,900 yen
- Singapore: S$749
- Taiwan: NT$13,990
India is missing from the list. That Pixel 6a will arrive in India later this year, so Google likely hasn’t set prices 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 gets.
Pixel 6a is powered by the same Tensor chip as the Pixel 6 flagships and offers powerful AI features like Magic Eraser and more. It also comes with 6GB RMA and 128GB storage. Of course, Google had to make some sacrifices with a lower camera resolution and a display with a 60Hz refresh rate. Still, you’re getting an OLED panel, and the Tensor chip should be more than capable of producing stunning computed photography with the phone’s dual 12-megapixel cameras.
The Pixel 6a will launch this summer, with pre-orders starting July 21 for the US and Japan. The colorways will be the same across most countries, with only Ireland and Singapore missing the Sage and Chalk colorways.
