Last week, we saw a prototype of the Pixel 7 series available online, months before the phones are supposed to be released in October. Now, it seems that Google’s new Pixel 6a is available for sale online before its official release.

An entry in the Facebook Marketplace for the Pixel 6a was made online by Nils Ahrensmeier of the trusted Technik News website. The item, which has since been withdrawn, also included mid-range Pixel photos. You can see these photos below.

In any case, the Pixel 6a will be available for pre-order only on July 21, with sales starting on July 28. So, more than a month ahead of schedule, someone grabbed something that seems to be a retail unit. Once the listing is removed, it is unclear whether Google will delete or has already deleted this Pixel 6a remotely. However, because it does not appear to be an original device, we believe the company will not follow this strategy.
