Google’s mid-range offering called the Pixel 4a is going to be announced in July if reports are to be believed. It was earlier reported that Google could reveal the 4a on 1 June but it appears that the possible launch timeline has been pushed forward. Tipster Jon Prosser, who had earlier correctly predicted the launch of the iPhone SE 2020, has suggested a 13 July release date for the Pixel 4a.
Google Pixel 4a: Expected specs and leaks
Apart from that he has also given a few key details surrounding the device. The first is that the Pixel 4a will not be a 5G device. There will be two colours of the Pixel 4a which will be “Just Black” and “Barely Blue”. Previous rumours have substantiated that the phone will have a dated Snapdragon 730 chipset and will have 4GB RAM along with storage variants of 64GB and 128GB.
The screen will not be a high refresh rate like the Pixel 4-series, but it will be OLED with FHD+ resolution and size measuring 5.81-inch. Powering the whole setup is believed to be a 3,080mAh battery with fast charging support. In terms of optics, which is likely to be the biggest USP of the Pixel 4a, there will be only a single camera backed by Google’s class-leading imaging software.
Although it hasn’t been confirmed, evidence points towards the fact that there will likely be no Pixel 4a XL. Since the iPhone SE has been priced at $399, we are expecting the Pixel 4a to be priced around similar lines. A previous report put the starting price of the device at $299, massively undercutting the iPhone SE which admittedly has a flagship chipset compared to the rumoured mid-range SoC on the Pixel 4a.
