Google is reportedly getting serious about Pixels in India

The Pixel 3 was the last flagship phone that Google released in India; neither the Pixel 4 nor Pixel 5 ever made it to one of the world's largest smartphone markets.

Unfortunately, for some of them, it has been unavailable across all devices — including Android/iOS phones and even smart displays/speakers.

Google's lack of foresight and strategy is stifling Pixel sales in India

Google's lack of foresight and strategy is stifling Pixel sales in India

When Google announced that its new budget champ, the Pixel 4a, would cost ₹30,000 — a whole 25% less than the Pixel 3a — it felt like Google has finally learned to hit the right note for India. The company nearly checked all the right boxes: the release was well-timed, coinciding with Flipkart’s month-long Diwali extravaganza, and user interest in the phone was right at its peak. It all paid off when the 4a opened to blockbuster sales with units flying off the (virtual) shelves, and then… Google happened. Stocks dried up in a matter of minutes, and Google wasn't able to replenish them for over two weeks.

Win one of two Google Pixel 4a phones from Chargeasap (Update: Winners)

Google just announced the Pixel 5 and 4a (5G) last week, but the 5G-less Pixel 4a undoubtedly remains one of the most attractive packages of the year.

The budget smartphone market in the United States is typically underwhelming, but 2020 has turned it (among many other things) upside down.

The Pixel 4a is the perfect upgrade from an older Pixel flagship

The Pixel 4a is the perfect upgrade from an older Pixel flagship

Google's phones typically last a good long while, at least software-wise. And we've seen that in practice, as many Android Police readers browse the site with Pixel 2 and even original Pixel smartphones today. But if you have one of these older phones, you may be getting to the point where an upgrade is finally on the table, and if you are still holding onto an old Pixel (or even Nexus) phone, the Pixel 4a is probably the best phone to come around in years to get you to pull the trigger. And at $350, it's not going to break the bank.
