Google has finally launched a new Pixel smartphone – Google Pixel 4a – in India after almost 1.5 years. The search giant had launched the Pixel 3a last year in May, but it didn’t bring the Pixel 4 series because of the Soli Radar chip. Now, the Google Pixel 4a is finally here and it’ll cost Rs 29,999. Google has noted that its a special launch price, so we are not sure if it’ll get increased to the MRP of Rs 31,999 after the festive season.
