The standard version will cost of Rs 29,999, while the 3a XL will cost Rs 34,999. Originally, the Pixel Google 3a and its XL version were launched with a price label of Rs 39,999 and Rs 44,999 respectively. This clearly means that the company will be offering Rs 10,000 discount on the Google Pixel 3a family.

During the Flipkart’s sale, one will also witness good enough exchange offers and a no-cost EMI option as well.
