The Google Pixel 6a has just appeared on Best Buy in the US, spotted by Roland Quandt. This listing is up rather early, as the Pixel 6a won’t become available to pre-order until July 21, and it will go on sale on July 28. That much Google confirmed.
The Pixel 6a is now listed on Best Buy
That being said, the Pixel 6a is listed on Best Buy in all three color options, and there are quite a few images available for each of those color variants. You can get a really good look at the phone.
The phone is listed for $449, which is its official price tag, for the unlocked model. You will also be able to get it through Sprint and Verizon via Best Buy, but do note that the Verizon model will cost you more, it’s priced at $499.
Needless to say, you cannot exactly purchase either variant of the device at the moment. Best Buy is not allowed to open up pre-orders until July 21. We’re not really sure this listing is supposed to be up already, but it’s possible. The Google Store listing has been up since launch.
Best Buy even offers Google’s official promo video for this phone via its website, the one we’ve seen a while back. If you’d like to check out the images Best Buy put up, check out the galleries below the article. Do note that we’ve seen the vast majority of these already, though.
The device comes with upgraded, design, SoC, RAM, storage, and more
The Pixel 6a is the latest mid-range smartphone from Google. It comes with an upgraded SoC, RAM, storage, design, and more. This device now looks like the Pixel 6, but a smaller variant of that phone.
It also includes the same processor as the Pixel 6, the Google Tensor. That is a major upgrade over the Snapdragon 765G included in the Pixel 5a 5G. The phone has Google’s new design language, and both LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 flash storage, which was not the case with the Pixel 5a 5G.
