Google Pixel 7a, Pixel Fold price leak online; Launch scheduled for May 10: report

The Google Pixel Fold and Pixel 7a smartphones are expected to debut soon. There have been several reports and leaks regarding these handsets over the past few months. The Pixel Fold, which is set to debut as Google’s first-ever foldable smartphone, is a highly anticipated handset. New reports have leaked the likely launch date of the Google Pixel 7a and Pixel Fold. The purported price of these phones and the color options they are expected to arrive in have also been leaked online.

According to a report by 9to5Google citing retail sources, the Google Pixel 7a is expected to cost $499 (around Rs 40,900) in the US. This price is $50 (around Rs 4,100) more than its predecessor, the Google Pixel 6a, which was launched last year. The rise in prices could be attributed to the improved quality of the raw materials used.

The Pixel 7a’s main camera is likely to feature a 64-megapixel sensor, accompanied by a 13-megapixel ultra-wide lens. The phone is also expected to be powered by a Tensor G2 chipset which was also used in the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro series of smartphones. The upcoming Pixel handset is also expected to sport a new 90Hz display and wireless charging support.

Previous reports suggested that the Google Pixel Fold will cost around $1,300 and $1,500 (around Rs 1,07,400 to Rs 1,23,935). These prices are considerably more expensive than other models in the Pixel line. The next Pixel Fold is still expected to be cheaper than the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 which is priced at $1,799.99 (roughly Rs 1,42,700) in the US.

A Tweeter by tipster Jon Prosser (Twitter: @jon_prosser) suggests the Google Pixel 7a will likely launch in Charcoal, Snow, Sea (light blue) and Coral color options – the latest colorway will only be available on the Google Store, according to Prosser . The phone will launch on May 10 at the Google I/O event and would also be immediately available for purchase in the US.
