Google took the wraps off its first-ever 5G enabled/inserted Pixel phones, the Google Pixel 5 and Google Pixel 4a 5G, a mere few days ago. But, if you are someone who had been waiting to hear about the launch date of the vanilla Google Pixel 4a in India, it seems you are in luck, my friend.
Google Pixel 4a India Launch Date
When Google launched the Google Pixel 4a back in August earlier this year, it confirmed that we will be seeing this mid-range smartphone arrive in India in October. Well, we have been waiting patiently since then and Google finally confirmed the Google Pixel 4a India launch date a couple days ago.
The company did not announce it during the Google Pixel 5 launch event or in a Google official blog post. Instead, the official @madebygoogle Twitter account replied to a random user’s question about the Google Pixel 4a with the October 17 India launch date. You can see the tweet right here down below:
The Pixel 4a launches in India on October 17th and will be available for purchase on Flipkart. To learn more about the Pixel 4a check out the official blogpost here: https://t.co/EOgWtQ7NMg

Google also unveiled that it will be exclusive to Flipkart (check out dedicated landing page for the Google Pixel 4a) in India.
A successor of the most popular Google Pixel 3a, the Google Pixel 4a arrived nearly two months ago, so let me jog your memory for what it has to offer in the Pixel 4a:
The Google Pixel 4a features a polycarbonate build design body with a single rear camera and a fingerprint scanner on the rear. You will find a 5.81-inch Full-HD+ OLED display with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio and 2340 x 1080 pixels resolution, and 60Hz refresh rate display. This is also the first Google Pixel phone with a punch-hole cutout, housing an 8MP selfie camera.
The device is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G SoC Mobile platform chipset, paired with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of built-in storage. It runs stock Android 10 out-of-the-box by Google. However, you will get the latest Android 11 update on this device. The square module on the rear includes a single 12.2MP (f/1.7) sensor with OIS+EIS support and a dual-tone LED flash. You also have a 3,140 mAh battery with 18W fast-charging technology support via the USB Type-C port on the bottom of the device.
The Google Pixel 4a has been priced at $349 (approximately Rs. 25,750) for the single 6GB of RAM + 128GB of built-in storage and Just a single Black variant. If you saw Google’s past pricing track record, you can expect the Pixel 4a to be priced around Rs. 34,999 in India. So, do you believe the Google Pixel 4a is a great bet at its price point in India? Or would you rather opt for OnePlus or Realme flagships? Let us know in the comments below.
