Google I/O is on May 10th, 2023 and with that the launch of Google Pixel 7a is imminent. Finally, after many leaks suggesting its price, specifications, and colour variants, the phone will see the light of day and whatever was heard about it will be confirmed.
Google has revealed that the Pixel 7a will be available on Flipkart for sale from May 11th, 2023. So, if we talk about the pricing of the phone, that hasn’t been revealed yet but an estimation can be made by comparing it to its predecessors. The Pixel 7a’s predecessor Pixel 6a was priced at around ₹44,000 and was the same in the Singapore market as well. So, the Pixel 7a was spotted on a Singapore-based retailer site where it costs around SGD 749, which is equal to around ₹46,000. So, this can be the expected price of the Pixel 7a in India and also as previous leaks suggested it would be below ₹50,000.
But judging by the specifications that have been revealed for the phone and also judging by the fact that it won’t even come with fast charging support, one should give a thought about whether it’s worth a buy or not.
So, we have come up with a few alternatives you could consider instead of the Google phone. Let’s have a look at the list and specifications of each phone.
