Google Pixel 7a release date history

Google hasn’t officially announced a release date for the Google Pixel 7a. But for the last few years, the company has followed a strict summer release window for its budget A-series devices. So, we expect the 7a will be released within that same window in 2023. Here are the release dates for the previous Pixel A-Series devices. 

  • Google Pixel 3a release date: May 2019
  • Google Pixel 4a release date: August 2020
  • Google Pixel 4a 5G release date: October 2020
  • Google Pixel 5a 5G release date: August 2021
  • Google Pixel 6a release date: July 2022

The only deviation was the Pixel 4a 5G which made its debut in the October of 2021. But this was an unusual model as it wasn’t an upgrade but the 5G variation of the same Pixel 4a.
