Google announced the date while answering to a fan asking about the same on Twitter. Also, the announcement comes after the launch event of the new Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a 5G. Unfortunately, the two phones are not coming to India.
While launching the Pixel 4a in August, Google said,
The price of Pixel 4a in India will be revealed closer to its launch in October 2020, when it will be available for purchase on Flipkart. Regarding the two new 5G Pixel phones that were announced globally today, these will not be available in India or Singapore, based on a variety of factors including local market trends and product features. We remain deeply committed to our current Pixel phones and look forward to bringing future Pixel devices to these countries.
Google is launching the Pixel 4a in India in the third wave of release. Currently, the Indian price is unknown, though the landing page on Flipkart is ready.
The Google Pixel 4a launched in the US for $349 for the sole 6GB RAM/128GB storage variant and the equivalent Indian price comes out to be around Rs. 25,600 but it is expected to cost somewhere around Rs. 30,000.
To reiterate, the Pixel 4a features a 5.81-inch FHD+ display with a 60Hz refresh rate and a hole-punch cutout on the top-left corner for an 8MP selfie camera. It is powered by a Snapdragon 730G processor, paired with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. On the back, there is a single 12.2MP camera with support for up to 4K video recording. There is a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, 3140mAh battery with 18W fast charging, and stereo speakers.
