The upcoming Google Pixel 8a is expected to include a 6.1-inch OLED display with a refresh rate of 120Hz. Let's explore a few other possible features of the new Google smartphone in India.

Google is expected to launch the Pixel 8a, the most affordable phone from the Pixel 8 series, at its annual I/O 2024 developer conference on May 14. However, before that, the smartphone's price, which seems to be more than the Pixel 7a, has surfaced online.

According to the recent leak by PassionateGeekz, a Canadian retailer has listed the price of the handset ahead of its launch, which is CAD 792.99 (about Rs 47,900) for the 256GB variant and CAD 708.99 (around Rs 42,830) for the 128GB model. If the reports are accurate, the entry-level version of the Google smartphone could cost between Rs 40,000 and Rs 45,000 in India, which is about Rs 1,000 to Rs 2,000 more than the Google Pixel 7a (Rs 43,999).

Let's look at some of the expected features of the soon-to-be-released model from the Google Pixel 8 Series.
