Google have launched its affordable smartphone, Pixel 6a for $449 at the I/O developer conference. The budget smartphone’s Google Pixel 6a price in Pakistan is expected to be Rs. 86000 ($449) while after the PTA tax, the price is expected to be around Rs. 120,000. The Google Pixel 6a price in Pakistan will be unveiled when the phone is launched in most of the countries.
The rumors have been circulating for quite some time, and now it’s official: Google unveiled the Pixel 6a, its latest affordable smartphone, just in time for the I/O developer conference. The Pixel 6 has been trimmed down for this model.
The Tensor SoC, which includes a CPU, GPU, and Titan M2 security chip, is present in the 6a as well as the more expensive 6 and 6 Pro. A 5G modem is built in. It will be available in three colors: white, black, and green, and pre-orders will begin on July 21st. The Pixel 6 series has been a huge hit for Google: The company stated at the keynote that the 6-series devices have sold more than the Pixel 4 and 5 combined.
Only one memory configuration is available for the 6a: 6 GB of main RAM and 128 GB of non-expandable flash memory.
The 6a has two rear cameras, one with a wide-angle lens and the other with an ultra-wide lens. The configuration is similar to that of the normal Pixel 6 – a telephoto lens is reserved for the Pro edition – but the 6a has a different sensor. The 6a’s main camera sensor is only 12 megapixels, but the more expensive variants have 50 megapixel sensors. For the front camera, Google employs an 8 MP sensor. The Google Pixel 6a will be a big hit in Pakistan as the Pakistani market is more suitable for the midrange smartphones.
The Pixel 6a features a 6.1-inch display with a resolution of 2400 x 1080 pixels and a maximum frame rate of 60 frames per second. The 6a is unlocked via a fingerprint sensor beneath the display, just like its more expensive siblings. The 6a is relatively small, measuring 152.2 mm by 71.8 mm by 8.9 mm. According to the IP standard, the housing is not protected against water and dust. The Google Pixel 6a is expected to be available in Pakistan in August 2022.
Google guarantees five years of security patches and four years of feature updates for the 6a. Only Samsung, among Android smartphone manufacturers, keeps its devices up to date for as long.
