Widespread reports suggest Google planned to reveal the Pixel 4a during its annual Google IO developer conference, but the event was cancelled due to the ongoing public health crisis - leaving Google without an event to showcase its latest smartphone hardware.
Inside the phone, Google went an octa-core Snapdragon 730G chipset with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, all of which means the 4a stacks up very well to the other devices in this price range. Amazon is also offering the Pixel 4a with a new Google case made from over 70 percent recycled plastic for $389.
As we wrote recently, today we are waiting for the presentation of the budget smartphone from Google - Pixel 4a.
Google offered few details about the Pixel 5; more information is expected in late 2020. The OLED display measures 5.81 inches corner to corner, with a resolution of 1,080 x 2,340 pixels and a small punch hole notch for the 8-MP selfie camera.
(Pocket-lint) - The Google Pixel 4a is now official after what seems like many months of speculation about whether Google was actually going to launch this phone.
Along with the back being in full view, we've also been treated to a pretty good look at the front of the 4a.
Also included here are two speakers: one main at the base of the phone and a secondary speaker at the top. Charging is USB-C, because it wouldn't not be, and the rear of the device comes with a single-lens camera and a physical fingerprint scanner. But, Google does not forget about plans to continue its flagship line, and in every possible way stirs up interest in the 5th generation of its Pixel lineup. Google has not released pricing for the Pixel 5 yet.
Thankfully we are getting a boost from previous year: we have a improved chipset (730 vs 670), an extra 2GB of RAM, double the storage space, 140 mAh of extra battery, and a slightly larger screen (0.2 inches).
But this is a Pixel device, after all, and since it runs Google's stock brand of Android it means it'll be first on the list to receive Android 11 as soon as it starts rolling out to the general Android population. However, a second, ultra-wide angle camera would have been useful. The Pixel 4A is anticipated to begin shipping on August 20. There is one potential catch, however: You can have any color Pixel 4a you want, as long as it's black. You can expect it to be a bit more expensive in Europe, though. There's no wireless charging here, but the 4a retains the same 18W wired charging as the 4.
