Technology enthusiasts are eagerly awaiting the launch of Google’s Pixel Fold and Pixel 7a smartphones. There have been several rumors and leaks circulating about these handsets for months, and recent reports have revealed the possible launch date, color options, and price range.
Pricing and Specs of the Pixel 7a
The Pixel 7a is expected to have a retail price of $499 (approximately Rs. 40,900) in the US, according to sources cited by 9to5Google. This is a $50 increase from its predecessor, the Pixel 6a, launched last year. The phone’s raw materials upgrade is said to be responsible for this price hike. The main camera on the device is anticipated to have a 64-megapixel sensor and a 13-megapixel ultrawide lens. The Tensor G2 chipset, which was also used in the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro series of smartphones, will power the upcoming Pixel 7a. The phone’s display is expected to feature a new 90Hz refresh rate, and wireless charging support.
The Pixel Fold is Expensive, but Cheaper than Competitors
The Pixel Fold is expected to be Google’s debut foldable smartphone, and it’s rumored to have a price range of approximately $1,300 to $1,500 (around Rs. 1,07,400 to Rs. 1,23,935). These prices are much higher than the other models in the Pixel lineup. Nonetheless, the upcoming Pixel Fold should be less expensive than its competitor, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4, which costs $1,799.99 (roughly Rs. 1,42,700) in the US.
Possible Color and Launch-Day Options
According to Jon Prosser, a tipster who has provided a number of leaks about the Google Pixel, the Pixel 7a will be launched in four color options: Charcoal, Snow, Sea, and Coral. Prosser claims that the Coral colorway will only be available at Google Store. The Pixel 7a is expected to be unveiled on May 10th during the Google I/O keynote, and it will be immediately available for purchase in the United States.
Prosser also predicted that the Google Pixel Fold will be launched alongside the Pixel 7a at the Google I/O event on May 10th. According to Prosser, the phone will be offered in black and white colorways and will become available for purchase in the US on June 27th.
The Google Store will begin taking pre-orders for the Pixel Fold on May 10th, with other carrier and partner pre-orders starting on May 30th.
It appears that there is much to expect from Google’s upcoming Pixel devices. The Pixel 7a will reportedly offer an excellent camera system and sturdy materials, while the Pixel Fold is Google’s premier entry into the foldable smartphone market. While these devices will undoubtedly be costly, Google fans can look forward to a new era of cutting-edge technology when these phones finally hit store shelves.
