Google Pixel 8a May Launch at Google I/O That Kicks off from May 14, 2024

| Updated on 3 April 2024

The A series from Google Pixel is regarded as the best budget Android mobile phone in the market. These devices sacrifice some hardware but make up for it with price tags and cameras. Most of us would buy the Pixel A series device specifically for the camera. 

Now, let’s look at when Google will launch its next budget Android flagship phone. 

While the release cycle for A series devices has been all over the place, there is no set pattern. However, we expect that Google might launch their next budget device at their flagship event – Google I/O, as they’ve done so a couple of times. This event is going to kick off on May 14, 2024. 

According to a report, Pixel 8a was passed through the FCC last month, so we can expect that the launch is near. This is a strong indicator that the phone may launch at Google I/O. 

When talking about the price, we can expect it to be priced at $599. This is just a deduction based on the previous year’s pricing, which is $100 less than the Pixel 8 base model. 

The new Pixel 8a will feature a similar design as we’ve seen in Pixel 8 series. Leaks from various sources have confirmed the design of the device. 

Now, let’s talk about the specs of the device. It will feature the same Tensor G3 processor as the Pixel 8 series. However, according to some tests from Geekbench, it seems that the chip is underclocked for the budget device. 

The best part about the A series device is the camera and software. Users will get flagship-grade camera performance at just a fraction of the cost. Users will also get a clean Android 14 version and the promise of 7 years of software updates as they’ve done with the whole Pixel 8 series.
