Highlights

  • Google has confirmed Pixel 6a’s India launch
  • It will be launching later this year in the country
  • It could be made available for purchase through Flipkart

Google Pixel 6a will debut in India as company’s first phone in nearly two years. At I/O 2022, the company revealed the names of the countries that will be receiving the Pixel 6a soon after unveiling it. Since India was not mentioned in the list, it seemed that the country would not receive it. However, an official tweet from the search giant confirms that the Pixel 6a will be released in India.

In 2020, Google released the Pixel 4a mid-ranger in the Indian market. While it was met with good reception, the company did not launch its successor and decided to not launch its flagship Pixel 6 series in the country.

Google Pixel 6a India launch: what to expect

As can be seen in the tweet above, Google India has only confirmed that it will be releasing the Pixel 6a “later this year” in India. The Pixel 6a is scheduled for release in countries like Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Singapore, Spain, Taiwan, the United Kingdom, and the United States in July this year.

To recollect, the Pixel 4a (review) went official in August 2020, but it was made available in India by October 2020. Hence, it appears that the Pixel 6a may also arrive a couple of months later in the country. Speculations are rife that the Pixel 6a will be priced around Rs 40,000 and will be sold through Flipkart in India. It carries a price tag of $449 (~Rs 34,850) in the US.
