It is possible that they will be announced simultaneously, but they will not be released simultaneously. Charcoal, Snow, Sea, and Coral are the names of the phone’s four color options; however, only the Coral option will be sold via the Google Store. The Pixel 7a may be purchased starting today for the price of $499.
When compared to the Pixel 6a, this represents an increase in the cost of $50. It is noteworthy to note that the Pixel 6a will continue to be sold after its successor has been released. At this juncture, it is only speculation, but it seems likely that this indicates that beginning on May 10 it will also experience a modest decrease in price.
