As Google I/O 2023 kicks off, tech enthusiasts are eagerly awaiting the announcement of Google’s newest devices and their corresponding prices. However, when it comes to Google products, leaks are par for the course, and we’re already seeing evidence of this today.
As Google I/O approaches, leaks are already surfacing, particularly about the upcoming Google Pixel 7a. One such leak comes from well-known leaker Ishan Agarwal, who shared an image on Twitter that reveals the device’s pricing, offers, and available accessories in India.
Seems like Google Pixel 7a Indian pricing has been leaked a little early— Ishan Agarwal (@ishanagarwal24) May 10, 2023
It starts at ₹39,999 incl offers (which I’m assuming is the ₹4000 HDFC Discount)
So without offers 🏷️ ₹43,999?
What do you think about the price? Worth it for Tensor G2? Does anyone here love their 6a? pic.twitter.com/K6v6Cd6m4u
As per the leak, the pricing for the Google Pixel 7a in India has been leaked ahead of the official announcement at Google I/O. The tweet reveals that the smartphone will be priced at ₹39,999 with a ₹4,000 discount when using an HDFC bank card. This translates to about $488 USD, which is slightly lower than the rumored $499 USD price for the U.S. market. However, those without access to HDFC bank cards may have to pay the full price of ₹43,999, which is approximately $537 USD.
To clarify, the leaked image of the Google Pixel 7a’s price and offers was reportedly taken from a Flipkart banner, which is the usual e-commerce vendor for Google hardware in India. Flipkart is an e-commerce platform in India that typically sells Google hardware, among other products. The banner appears to have been viewable only through a mobile browser.
In addition to the leaked pricing for the Google Pixel 7a, the Flipkart banner also features a promotion for the Pixel Buds A-series and the Fitbit Inspire 2. The offer suggests that customers will be able to choose one of these items at a discounted price during checkout. As the Google I/O event is just around the corner, we will soon have all the official information regarding pricing and promotions. Stay tuned to our coverage of the event to learn more about the exciting new products that Google has to offer.
