Google Pixel 7a has officially launched in India, alongside global markets. Announced at Google I/O 2023 developer conference, Pixel 7a with a price of Rs 43,999 is the most affordable Pixel phone that Google makes at the time of writing. It has a design inspired by the more premium Pixel 7 and 7 Pro. The core hardware—which is Google’s own Tensor G2 chip—is the same, too. The software experience is largely the same as well. Where it differs from its more expensive siblings is in the choice of build materials, display and especially the cameras. There are more differences but the Pixel 7a punches above its weight (for a “budget” Pixel) in every aspect and is definitely a big upgrade over the Pixel 6a.

The screen is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3 and has a hole punch cut-out at the centre. This houses an updated 13MP selfie camera that can also record at up to 4K@30fps.
