Google Pixel 6a has been removed from Google’s online store

Google I/O 2024 dates are here which means the new Pixel 8a model could be announced very soon in the market.

Google Pixel 8a launch is tipped in the next few months and we now have the biggest hint about the new phone coming to town. Google has removed the Pixel 6a model off the shelf, digitally, which could be a sign that the Pixel 8a launch is not far away.

We independently checked the Google Store online to see if the product lineup has been revised, and we noticed that the Pixel 7a is the most-affordable Pixel phone that Google has listed officially with no sign of the Pixel 6a.

Google Pixel 6a is a few years old, which came out in 2022 and is just one year away from losing its official OS support cycle from the company. But more importantly, Google removing the Pixel 6a from the online shelf also hints at an imminent launch of the Pixel 8a, now that we have official details about the Google I/O 2024 keynote in May this year.

Google has traditionally used its developer event to launch the new Pixel a series model, and we can’t see why the company would change that trend this year as well. The Pixel 6a might be off the shelf but current Pixel 6a owners can continue using their device, at least until 2025 for the OS updates, and 2027 if you are comfortable using the old Android version but with regular security updates from Google.

Google Pixel 8a Launch In May 2024: What We Know

Google is yet to confirm the official Pixel 8a launch date but we have got more details about the upcoming mid-range Pixel phone, courtesy, Kamila Wojciechowska. The tipster claims the Pixel 8a will feature a 120Hz refresh rate screen with a 1,400 nits of peak brightness on offer. However, the report here says the Pixel 8a might not see big hardware upgrades, especially the cameras on the upcoming Pixel model.

Pixel 8a should come with the Tensor G3 chipset, which also powers the Pixel 8 and 8 Pro models and is far better than the Tensor G2 when it comes to power management. In terms of the design, we might see a more rounded approach with the Pixel 8a which should give it a better in-hand feel and grip. The Pixel 7a was launched for around Rs 42,000 and we are hoping that Google brings the Pixel 8a at a competitive price to the market.
