Google has started offering the Pixel 6a and Pixel Buds Pro in multiple markets. Available to order in far more countries than the Pixel 5a, the Pixel 6a will begin shipping next week, as will the Pixel Buds Pro. Google is offering a pre-order bonus worth £99.99 with Pixel 6a bonuses too.

Google has opened pre-orders for the Pixel 6a and Pixel Buds Pro, which it introduced in May at Google I/O 2022. For reference, Google only offers the Pixel 6a with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of flash storage. Like other Pixel smartphones, the Pixel 6a lacks a microSD card reader. Hence, you cannot physically equip the Pixel 6a with more than 128 GB of storage, unlike the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro.

Currently, Google sells the Pixel 6a in thirteen countries, including India. At launch, the Pixel 6a costs as follows in these markets:

  • Australia: AUD$749
  • Canada: CAD$599
  • France: €459
  • Germany: €459
  • India: INR 43,999
  • Ireland: €459
  • Italy: €459
  • Japan: JPY 53,900
  • Singapore: SGD$749
  • Spain: €459
  • Taiwan: NTD$13,990
  • UK: £399
  • US: US$449

As far as we can tell, Google is also offering a complimentary pair of Pixel Buds A-Series earbuds with all pre-orders. Typically, these retail for £99.99, just under half what the Pixel Buds Pro cost. By contrast, Google has elected against running any pre-order bonuses for the Pixel Buds Pro, which ships in Charcoal, Coral, Fog, and Lemongrass colour options.

However, all colour options feature a white charging case, mirroring other Pixel Buds. In comparison, the Pixel 6a is available in Chalk, Charcoal and Sage colour options. It is worth noting that Google does not include a case or a charger in the case, first-party versions of which both retail for £25. Both the Pixel Buds Pro and Pixel 6a will begin shipping on July 28.
