The Google Pixel 6a, the latest smartphone from the Silicon Valley tech giant, has become available to pre-order today (July 21), ahead of its scheduled release of July 28. With price starting at $449 / £399, it’s much more affordable option than the Google Pixel 6 and Google Pixel 6 Pro smartphones. 

Indeed, the affordable yet powerful successor to the Google Pixel 5a, the Google Pixel 6a may even find a spot within the best phones on the market. What’s more, Google has cleverly sweetened the deal for potential buyers by offering free the Google Pixel Buds A-Series, worth £99.99 with Google Pixel 6a smartphone orders, placed at the Google Store from today until August 1.
