Google Pixel 6a release, but not in the Netherlands

Google now makes it possible to use the Pixel 6a to pre-order after the phone was announced in May. The device can only be ordered abroad and a release in the Benelux is not forthcoming. We had secretly already taken that into account, because the Pixel phones have never been officially released in the Netherlands and Belgium. Google does sell other devices here, such as the Chromecast with Google TV.

But, it will probably still be possible to buy the Pixel 6a here. A number of Dutch web stores sell Google Pixel phones via gray import, such as Belsimpel and Mobiel .NL. This may also be the case for the affordable Pixel 6a. The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro have been available in the Netherlands for a while.

You can of course also choose to purchase the new Pixel device abroad. For example, you can place an order at the German Google Store and have the package delivered to a German address. Of course you can also drive to the MediaMarkt or Saturn in Germany and buy the Pixel 6a there.

More about the Pixel 6a

The Pixel 6a is an affordable Google Phone which is based on the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. The device has a suggested retail price of 459 euros, but the same powerful Tensor chip. Google stops 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, as well as a 4410 mAh battery. The battery can charge quickly, but with only 18 Watts.

On the back of the Google Pixel 6a are two cameras: a 12.2 megapixel main camera and a 12 megapixel wide-angle lens. An 8 megapixel selfie camera, which sits in a small hole in the screen, completes the picture. The smartphone has a handy night mode and the so-called ‘Magic Eraser’, with which you can erase elements in photos.

Remarkable about the Pixel 6a is that the device is relatively compact. The OLED screen is ‘only’ 6.1 inches in size, has thin edges and a resolution of 2400 by 1080 pixels. Unfortunately, the refresh rate is stuck at 60Hz; almost all Android phones these days have 90Hz or 120Hz. This makes animations look much smoother.
