The Google Pixel 6a will be available for pre-order starting July 21 in many countries including the US. The device will start shipping on July 28th. For those who are unaware, the Pixel 6a was announced over a couple of months back at Google IO 2022. And, soon after the launch, the device was confirmed to launch in India as well.
[Update: The Google Pixel 6a is tipped to launch in India on July 21st, which is the same day as a global pre-order date.]

As expected there is a fair amount of excitement in the tech enthusiasts for the Pixel 6a. While we are yet to know the availability and sale date for the same in India, the Pixel 6a’s pricing has been tipped ahead of the official announcement.
