Although buying this device, I’m afraid, is not an entirely good idea. And not just because the Pixel 7a It will cost around 500 euros. in the global market according to the latest rumors (which also), but because it is a device prototype which has already been identified and blocked by Google, so it’s currently unusable and you can’t even turn it on. The seller himself acknowledges this, indicating that the terminal is sold “without working or for parts”.
In addition to not going beyond “Fastboot” mode, the Pixel 7a prototype for sale appears to not include a SIM card tray. Otherwise, the seller states that it is in “perfect cosmetic condition” and that “maybe someone in the know can make it work for a collector’s item before it goes on sale.”

Those people who want to bid to try to get hold of the device, can do so through the product page on eBay.
