The Pixel 6 series has a new addition – the mid-range Pixel 6a, which is now on sale in the UK and US.
The A-Series offer some of the core features seen on Google’s flagship Pixel phones for a fraction of the price. For example, the Pixel 6a has the same Tensor chip, and the rear design also remains largely similar.
