Google Pixel coming to India? For the fans who have been hung out since 2020, this could be a big news. Google has been annually coming up with new phones for its international markets but has completely left India after its last outing in the Pixel 4a. With no new models existing in the world's largest smartphone market, Google seems to be coming back with a new Pixel device. Based on the leaked data, it doesn't seem to be the much-hyped Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. Instead, it is a completely new model.

Given that Google does not want to sell its flagship models in India, it seems the company could be bringing the Pixel 6a as the successor to the old and discontinued Pixel 4a. The phone was spotted on the BIS certification website with the model number GX7AS. While some suggest it is the Pixel 6a, others suggest it could be the Pixel 7 series, considering the “GX7” in the tag. Google is yet to reveal anything regarding this front and hence, you should take this with a pinch of salt.

New Google Pixel for India

The Pixel 6a is yet to break the cover internationally. Expected to be a watered-down version of the Pixel 6, this one could achieve a very low price tag to take on the likes of Apple's upcoming iPhone SE 3, which is expected to be priced lower at $300 this year. Some leaks had suggested that Google could continue offering the same stylish Pixel 6 design on the Pixel 6a but with a couple of changes.

Many rumours also suggested that the Pixel 6a could use the same Google Tensor chip instead of a Qualcomm Snapdragon chip. The phone is expected to feature a 6.2-inch OLED display with 60Hz refresh rate and the same cameras from the Pixel 6. The phone could launch with Android 12, if Google decides to announce it in May during the Google I/O event this year.

Note that most international devices obtain a BIS certification but never launch in India. Hence, there are chances of Google not launching any Pixel devices in the country. Google has previously hinted that it has plans to do something for the Pixel series in India but never gave a concrete answer.
