Meet Pixel 8a: Premium AI features meet affordability, in a phone that’s built to last

Pixel 8a phones in Aloe, Bay, Obsidian, and Porcelain colors

The Google Pixel 8a is here! Powered by our latest Google Tensor G3 chip, it's equipped with many of the same must-have AI features as Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro — like Gemini, Best Take, Audio Magic Eraser and more. Designed to capture amazing photos, save you time and help keep you and your loved ones safe, the Pixel 8a offers unbeatable value, starting at INR 52,999.

Fun colors and a fresh design

Our refined A-Series design feels even better and more premium in your hands with rounded edges, a matte back and an aluminum frame. Its durable design can handle slips, spills and dust, making Pixel 8a the most durable A-Series phone yet. Plus, its new Actua display is 40 percent brighter than Pixel 7a’s, and the faster 120Hz refresh rate makes scrolling smooth.

There are two new A-series colors: Aloe (a limited-edition color!) and Bay. Or choose from one of our neutral color options: Obsidian or Porcelain. And for the first time ever, there’s a larger storage capacity option at 256GB, giving you more space for your favorite content.

Amazing photography made simple

Pixel 8a features a powerful dual rear camera with a 64-megapixel main lens and a 13-megapixel ultrawide lens. It also comes equipped with a 13-megapixel front-facing camera that has a large field-of-view to fit even more into your shots.

Thanks to Google Tensor G3, Pixel 8a is packed with AI-powered tools to make the most out of your photos and videos.

  • Magic Editor lets you reposition and resize subjects or use presets to make the background pop — all with just a few taps.
  • Audio Magic Eraser easily removes distracting sounds in your videos — like wind, crowds and other noises — for crisp and clear audio.

Pixel 8a also includes Super Res Zoom up to 8x and features like Magic Eraser, Night Sight and Photo Unblur. Like every Pixel, Pixel 8a includes Real Tone to accurately represent everyone’s skin tone in photos and videos.

Google AI makes it even easier to get things done

With features built to help you save time, Pixel 8a helps you get more things checked off your to-do list so you can spend more time doing things that matter most to you.

Gemini is coming to Pixel 8a. This built-in AI assistant lets you type, talk and add images for all kinds of help on the go — from brainstorming ideas, writing a thank you note or even planning your next vacation. Once you enable extensions, you can ask Gemini to do tasks like summarize your recent emails or quickly sift through your inbox. Pixel 8a is the first phone at this price point with Gemini, allowing even more access to helpful creativity and productivity. Hold the power button to get started with Gemini.

Circle to Search is also on Pixel 8a, so you no longer have to switch apps to find the information you are looking for — saving you time. Just use your finger to circle, scribble or tap on an image, text or video to search for what you’re looking at.

Pixel 8a will also introduce Audio Emojis, making your phone calls more expressive and engaging than before. With Audio Emoji, just tap on an emoji to trigger an audio reaction and visual effect. Try using a hand-clap emoji to applaud a job well done or the laughing emoji after telling your best joke.

Improved setup and controls make it a great phone for families

Now, it is even easier for parents and guardians to set up a Pixel, making Pixel 8a a great option for families. With an improved setup right out of the box, parents and guardians can set digital ground rules for the phone. Once the phone is set up, Family Link lets you manage privacy settings, establish screen time limits, and share locations.
