With a few days remaining for the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro to arrive officially, those who wanted Google’s Pixel 6a at a lower price just had their prayers answered. The price-to-performance ratio of this mid-ranger became much better thanks to a listing update on Amazon, where the Pixel 6a is down to just $349. To remind you of the discount you will get, Google launched this model at $449 retail in the U.S., so that is a pretty hefty cut.
The discount is applied to many Pixel 6a colors, and since there are many options to choose from, you will have to take your sweet time in picking one. Luckily, the time normally taken to pick a suitable model as your daily driver will be reduced significantly because the Pixel 6a only ships in one model that offers 128GB of non-expandable storage, along with 6GB of RAM. The variant sold on Amazon is unlocked and will work with all major U.S. carriers.
As for the remaining specifications, the Pixel 6a comes with Google’s own Tensor chipset, the same one powering the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro flagships. There is also a generously-sized 4410mAh battery, which the company claims will last you for 24 hours, but your mileage will vary. At the back, you get a dual-camera system with 12MP sensors that can also record 4K video at 60FPS.
The front side houses an 8MP shooter. Google is well-known for implementing impressive computational techniques that end up improving the image quality. The Pixel 6a will definitely not be an exception when you want to capture near-accurate or crisp photos or video. Google has promised three annual software updates for this model, along with quarterly security updates for many years.
For customers who are on a budget and do not want to splurge an insane amount on a flagship, this deal is definitely for you.
