Google’s Pixel 7a Coming Soon With a Price Bump

Google’s Pixel 7a is set to launch at Google I/O on May 10, and a retail source has revealed that it will be priced at $499. This successor to the Pixel 6a, which was crowned the best-value phone of 2022, has gained much anticipation.

The $50 increase from last year’s model has led to some speculation. Even with the current trend of rising phone prices, the Pixel A-series has maintained incredible value. It is likely that the price hike is due to the new design and upgrades such as a 64MP main sensor, a 13MP ultrawide shooter, a 90Hz display, and wireless charging. Based on this, the production costs may have risen, which are unfortunately being passed on to consumers.

Still, Google will offer the low-priced Pixel 6a at a reduced price, even if details are yet to be announced.

According to Jon Prosser, the release date of the Pixel 7a is May 10. However, it will not be available for in-store or delivery until May 11. The phone will come in previously leaked colors, with an exclusive “Coral” option sold only on the Google Store. More details on the Pixel 7a’s release are expected to emerge as the launch date draws near.
