Google’s upcoming smartphones including the Pixel 6a has been in the news for a few days now. The upcoming Pixel 7 series phones were reportedly being sold online way ahead of the launch and more recently, a Google Pixel 6a unboxing video was posted on TikTok revealing the phone as well as the box content.

Last month at the Google IO 2022, Google announced the Pixel 6a mid-range Android device for $449 (roughly Rs 35,000). Google also confirmed that the device will be up for pre-order starting July 21st in the US. While we still have more than a month for the pre-orders to begin, the Google Pixel 6a has been listed on the Facebook Marketplace.
