The Pixel 7a is said to be priced at $499 (roughly Rs. 41,000). Considering Google’s launch in India, we can guess that the price will be around Rs.44,000.

Should you buy the Google Pixel 6a or wait for the Pixel 7a?

Should you buy the Pixel 6a or wait for the Pixel 7a?

With less than a month left for the launch of the Pixel 7a in the country, those planning to buy the Pixel will have to wait for its successor, the 6a. This especially takes into account the higher screen refresh rate, a larger battery that can compensate for the higher refresh rate and a larger 64MP camera, which should certainly provide better quality images compared to its predecessor.

With the Tensor G2, performance improves, especially during multitasking and gaming. It will be backed by LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage. All of these upgrades should certainly make up for the $50 price hike over its predecessor.
