Now that the Google Pixel 6a is available for pre-order (with deliveries starting next Thursday, July 28th), Google is doing whatever it can to get you to buy one. One way that the company is trying to make it easier to pick up its latest Pixel is by increasing the value of some older Pixel models that are being used as a trade-in. The maximum trade-in value is $300 toward the purchase of all Pixel 3a models available from the Google Store including the unlocked variant and carrier-locked models for AT&T, Google Fi, and Verizon.
The Google Pixel 6a features a 6.1-inch OLED display with an old-school 60Hz refresh rate and an FHD+ resolution. The Google Tensor chipset powers the phone which features 6GB of memory and 128GB of storage. There is a 12.2MP primary camera on the rear along with a 12MP ultra-wide-angle snapper. The front-facing camera weighs in at 8MP. A 4410mAh battery keeps the lights on.
Pre-order the Google Pixel 6a
Pixel 6a has an IP67 rating which means that the phone is protected from dust and can be submerged in up to 1 meter (3 feet, 3 inches) of clear water for as long as 30 minutes. Color options include Sage, Chalk, and Charcoal.
To reiterate, the regular price of the Pixel 6a is $449 except at Verizon where it is $499. If you want to take advantage of these trade-in prices, remember, the clock is ticking.
