At Google’s annual I/O event, the company confirmed that the highly anticipated Pixel 6a is official and will be making its way to shelves this summer. 

The A-Series offer some of the core features seen on Google’s flagship Pixel phones for a fraction of the price. For example, the Pixel 6a will have the same Tensor chip, and the rear design will also remain largely similar.

If you’d like to get your hands on a Pixel 6a, then we have everything you need to know – including when you can pre-order the phone, the price of the handset and more.
