Now that the Google Pixel 6a is available for pre-order (with deliveries starting next Thursday, July 28), Google is doing everything it can to get you to buy one. One way the company is trying to make it easier to pick up its latest Pixel is by increasing the value of some older Pixel models used as trade-ins. The maximum trade-in value is $300 for the purchase of all Pixel 3a models available on the Google Store, including the unlocked variant and carrier-locked models for AT&T, Google Fi and Verizon.
The Google Pixel 6a has a 6.1-inch OLED display with an old-school 60Hz refresh rate and an FHD+ resolution. The Google Tensor chipset powers the phone with 6GB of storage and 128GB of storage. There is a 12.2MP primary camera on the back along with a 12MP ultra-wide angle lens. The front camera weighs 8 MP. A 4410mAh battery keeps the lights on.
Pre-order the Google Pixel 6a
Pixel 6a has an IP67 rating, which means the phone is protected from dust and can be submerged in up to 1 meter (3 feet, 3 inches) of clear water for up to 30 minutes. Color options include sage, chalk and charcoal.
Again, the regular price of the Pixel 6a is $449, except at Verizon, where it’s $499. If you want to take advantage of these trade-in prices, remember that the clock is ticking.
