Google Pixel 8a Sets Singapore Prices Starting From S$799

With conversations surrounding AI reaching an all-time high, it is only natural that Google’s new budget mobile phone, the Google Pixel 8a, comes packed with the same features as its flagship sibling.

The mainline Pixel 8 series falters from a value perspective where its features don’t quite match up to this price tag. But that’s where the Pixel 8a shines through with the retail price set at S$799 (128GB) and S$899 (256GB) for Singapore. If you’re able to hold out, we’ve seen prices for Google’s budget phone go as low as S$500 during sale periods.

Packing the same Google Tensor G3 processor as the Pixel 8 Pro and Pixel 8, the biggest difference here we can see on paper would be the camera module the Pixel 8a uses. Apart from that, if you’re not the type of consumer which needs the latest or greatest device, the Pixel 8a is a solid pick. On top of that, Google promises the 8a will enjoy 7 years of OS and security updates to help users gain value from their budget device.

Here are other key features of the Pixel 8a that might pique your interest:

  • Google Tensor G3 processor
  • 6.1-inch Actua display
  • 120hz 1080×2400 OLED display at 430 PPI
  • 4492 mAh battery
  • 64 MP Quad PD wide camera / 0.8 μm pixel width
  • 13 MP ultrawide camera / 1.12 μm pixel width

Google’s track record with their budget range of Pixel devices has been excellent and we should not expect the Pixel 8a to deviate far from the norm. If anything, the feature set looks excellent and provides a great deal of value for anyone looking to get workhorse device for day-to-day use.

The Google Pixel 8a will go on sale 14 May 2024 via the Google Store, Amazon SG, Singtel Online, Shopee, and Lazada.
