The Google Pixel 6a has been launched in India today. Notably, the company has launched a new Pixel device in India after about two years. The Google Pixel 6a was announced at the Google IO 2022, but the device will be up for pre-order starting today only in select markets, including the US, UK and more countries.
The Google Pixel 6a is the successor to the Pixel 5a from last year, which unfortunately was not launched in India. The Pixel 6a is the first device to launch in India after the Pixel 4a from 2020. The new Google Pixel 6a’s key selling feature is the Tensor processor, which is developed by Google. The phone is priced under Rs 40,000 (with launch offers) in India and will rival the likes of the OnePlus 10R, Nothing Phone (1), and Realme GT series. Let’s take a look at the phone in detail.
