Google’s hot new Pixel 6a on sale now

by James Wilkinson

Google’s hot new Pixel 6a and Pixel Buds Pro are now available for pre-order.

The latest A-series phone, Google Pixel 6a, is available for AU$749 and is packed with the same powerful brains, Google Tensor, and favourite features from Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro — but at a lower price point.

With dual rear cameras, an exceptional selfie camera (same as Pixel 6), the camera is built to be versatile and adapt to your needs. Pixel 6a also features Real Tone, Night Sight and Magic Eraser in Google Photos.

A first for Pixel phones, Pixel 6a comes with an all-day battery that can last up to 72 hours when in the Extreme Battery Saver mode. The Pixel 6a also has the same highly accurate speech recognition as Pixel 6 Pro, including features like Recorder, Live Caption and Live Translate.

The new premium wireless earbuds, Google Pixel Bud Pro, are priced at AU$299 and boast Active Noise Cancellation that brings you full, immersive sound.

Pixel Buds Pro uses Silent Seal to adapt to your ear, helping maximise the amount of noise that’s cancelled, while built-in sensors measure the pressure in your ear canal to make sure you’re comfortable even during long listening sessions.

With Multipoint connectivity, Pixel Buds Pro can automatically switch between your previously paired Bluetooth devices, including laptops, tablets, TVs, and Android or iOS phones. If you’re sweating through an intense workout or jogging in light rain, the new earbuds have IPX4 water resistance and the case is IPX2 water resistant.


Pixel 6a is available in Chalk, Charcoal and Sage for $749. Pre-order now from the Google Store, JB HI-FI, Telstra, Optus, Vodafone, Officeworks and Harvey Norman. Google Pixel 6a will be on-shelves from July 28.
