New information about Google’s Pixel 8a phone has been released. It includes details about the price and the battery. According to OnLeaks and SmartPrix, the price of the Pixel 8a might be the same as the starting price of the Pixel 7a from 2023. It might cost $499 in the U.S. for the version with 128GB of storage. There could also be a 256GB version that might cost about $559 in the U.S.

Rumors suggest that while the price in the U.S. might stay the same, Google could raise the price a little for this budget device in India. The latest rumors say that the Pixel 8a might have a 4,500mAh battery. It is also reported that the phone could have a display with a 120Hz refresh rate and use the Tensor G3 chip. Additionally, the phone is expected to have generative AI features, probably provided by Gemini.
