Google, at its annual developers' conference, Google I/O 2022, launched its next-gen mid budget -- Pixel 6A. Shortly after the event, the company announced that Pixel 6A will also arrive in India.
In a tweet from its Google India Twitter handle, the company said, "We're so thrilled to announce that the Pixel 6a is coming to India later this year," confirming that the phone will arrive in India soon. However, the company didn't share a timeline as to when the Pixel 5A successor will be available in India. Google also didn't share details about the phone's pricing.
It is worth noting that it has been two years since Google launched a smartphone in India. Google Pixel 4A was the last Pixel smartphone that arrived in India. It arrived in India back in 2020.
