Google expands the availability of the Pixel 8a


Google’s market share for smartphones isn’t that big. Compared to Apple and Samsung, Google only commands a fraction of the market. But this isn’t an issue with the company’s hardware, but rather the fact that Google’s Pixel handsets aren’t available worldwide. That changes with the Pixel 8a as Google has announced its availability in Poland.

If you’re a Phandroid reader from Poland, the good news is that you’ll be able to pick up the phone soon enough. The handset is priced starting at PLN 2,449. If you’re not from Poland and you’re in a country where the Pixel phones aren’t officially available, it looks like you’re out of luck.

However, Google’s decision to expand the availability of the Pixel 8a could suggest that they might bring it to other markets in the future. There’s no guarantee of that happening, so don’t get your hopes up just yet. That being said, other regions where the Pixel phones aren’t officially available have been resorting to gray market imports.

This means that they probably pay higher prices compared to official markets. However, it’s one of the ways they can get their hands on the phone for now. For the rest of us, the Pixel 8a is available for pre-order and will be released in stores May 14.
