Sorry, nothing in cart.
Google’s upcoming mid-range offering the Pixel 4a has been doing the rounds on the internet for a long time and now it would appear that a launch date has been revealed. Google has made no official announcement regarding the Pixel 4a, like it did months before for the Pixel 4-series, new information leaking from one of Germany’s telecom carrier puts the launch of the Pixel 4a on 22 May.
A German website has revealed the Pixel 4a sale date as May 22nd, courtesy some internal documents of Vodafone. This means that the Pixel 4a could launch a week or two before going on sale. The smartphone is expected to take on the iPhone SE 2020, which is Apple’s new affordable iPhone. The latter has been priced in the US starting at $399 (Approx Rs 32,500 in India) and the Pixel 4a is also rumoured to start with the same price tag.
It would still be wise to take these rumours with a pinch of salt since nothing has been officially confirmed and the release date has been spotted in internal documents at Vodafone.
There has been a significant amount of leaks surrounding the Pixel 4a which has gives us a picture of what we can expect from the device. The handset is tipped to sport a 5.8-inch flat display with a 443ppi screen and a rather disappointing 60Hz refresh rate. The Pixel 4a design is widely rumoured to include a punch-hole display on the front and squarish camera bump on the back with a single camera and an LED flash. This means there will be no space to place the custom Soli Radar chip, a feature which incidentally blocked the Pixel 4 from selling in India.
In terms of processing, a dated Snapdragon 730 chipset is being touted for the Pixel 4a. The phone will have the Titan M security chip and will feature a 3080mAh battery. RAM and storage configurations for the device include up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage with no option to expand using a microSD card.
On the back, the Pixel 4a has been seen to have a single camera layout in square housing alongside the LED flash. The headphone jack is likely to be retained on the Pixel 4a.
