Google hasn’t been the greatest when it comes to making its Pixel phones widely available around the globe. In India, for example, the country hasn’t seen a Pixel phone launch since 2020 with the Google Pixel 4a.

Today, though, that has changed! Pre-orders for the Google Pixel 6a in India are now open. Additionally, the business is running a number of deals to help you save money and receive more Google goods.

The price of the Pixel 6a is Rs. 43,999 (about $550). That refers to the sole variant with 6GB of RAM, 128GB of internal storage, and the Google Tensor chip that is currently on the market. There are two color options available: Chalk and Charcoal.

Google Pixel 6a

Use Axis Bank Cards with EMI for your purchase if you wish to save some cash. This reduces the cost by Rs. 4,000, or about $500, to Rs. 39,999.

If you want to save even more, you can exchange a phone during your purchase. Google will offer Rs. 6,000 (~$75) for any Pixel device and some select smartphone models. If you don’t have one of those, you can cut Rs. 2,000 (~$25) off with any other smartphone.

If you stack the trade-in with the Axis/EMI discount, you could get a Google Pixel 6a India pre-order for just Rs. 33,999 (~$425).

Finally, Google would love for you to buy some other Google products along with your pre-order. If you toss in a Nest Hub (2nd Gen), Pixel Buds a-series, or Fitbit Inspire 2, you’ll get that secondary item for just Rs. 4,999 (~$62.51).

Don’t want to pre-order or don’t want to buy from Google? The Pixel 6a will be available from Flipkart starting July 28.
