Google Pixel 6a is cheaper on Amazon compared to Flipkart, but you should not buy it

There is a catch!

Highlights
  • Google Pixel 6a is available at around Rs 37,800 on Amazon India.
  • These are imported units and won’t likely fall under the one-year brand warranty.
  • Google Pixel 6a with a one-year brand warranty is available at Rs 43,999 via Flipkart. 

Google Pixel 6a is available at a much more affordable price on Amazon compared to what Flipkart is offering, but you shouldn’t get excited. While a Rs 6,500 cheaper price tag may seem a sweet deal to many, it comes with an expensive catch. When Google launched the Pixel 6a in India, it chose Flipkart as its delivery partner. This means that the Pixel 6a selling on Amazon is likely imported. For those who don’t know, imported units don’t fall under warranty in India, and you likely won’t be able to get any help from the company if you face any issue(s) with the device.
