Pixel 6a prices for regions outside the US are revealed
Google finally confirmed the existence of the Pixel 6a as its new affordable version of its own Android smartphone line. This one has the same Tensor chipset and some of the same camera features as its 6 and 6 Pro counterparts, although it has made compromises in other areas to come in at a lower price-point.
For example, Google made no effort to draw attention to certain Pixel 6a specs during its introduction, and this is largely because its smaller 6.1-inch display, while OLED and FHD+ in resolution, has a profoundly standard 60Hz refresh rate.
No fancy battery-saving technologies here then - although Google still asserts the 6a can still stay on for at least 24 hours per charge with its 4,410mAh battery (which, again, has a very average 18W charging rate).
Nevertheless, many customers might appreciate this easier route to Pixel features, not the least its factory-fresh take on Android 13. Google has now revealed that, while it will cost US$449 on the start of pre-orders in the US market, it will cost €459 in its initial round of European countries (Spain, Italy, Germany, France and the Republic of Ireland).
Similarly, the 6a now has a price-tag of £399 in the United Kingdom; one of 749 dollars in both Singapore and Australia (SG$ or AU$); 13,990 new Taiwanese dollars (NTD); 53,900 Japanese yen, and CA$599 in Canada. Then again, it is not certain if the Pixel 6a will be released on the same date (July 21, 2022) specified for the United States across these additional markets.
