Google Pixel 7a: European and UK pricing leaks before Google I/O 2023 introduction
While Google has now confirmed that it will present the Pixel 7a next week, much is already known about the upcoming mid-range smartphone. For example, numerous marketing materials have emerged in the last week, as have what appear to be several official launch slides. European and UK pricing can now be added to the list of the Pixel 7a leaks, with 9to5Google sharing US pricing details last month.
For reference, 9to5Google claims that Google will launch the Pixel 7a for US$499 in the US, US$50 more than the Pixel 6a. According to multiple sources, this will also be true in the Eurozone and the UK, where the Pixel 7a is rumoured to retail for €509 and £499 with 128 GB of storage, respectively. Previous leaks suggest that Google had developed 128 GB and 256 GB versions of the Pixel 7a, but there have been no price leaks for the latter SKU so far. Incidentally, Google has recently reduced the Pixel 7 to £549 in the UK, potentially leaving just £50 between it and the Pixel 7a when the latter arrives on May 10.
Additionally, @billbil_kun claims that Google's official Pixel 7a cases will cost €34.99, €5 more than equivalents for the Pixel 6a and Pixel 7. The leaker adds that Google will offer official Pixel 7a cases in Arctic Blue, Carbon, Jade and White colourways. All but Jade have leaked so far, courtesy of Roland Quandt. Reportedly, the Pixel 7a will be Google's final Pixel A-Series model, with a foldable effectively replacing the Pixel A-Series in the company's three-device-per-year release schedule.
