The Google Pixel 4 when it was launched, kicked up controversy because one of its most novel features was also the reason why it wasn’t launched in various countries like India. However, Indian consumers and many others around the world have been holding out for the Google Pixel 4a(₹ 28999 at amazon), hoping that it would launch with more of the desirable features of the Pixel 4, minus the Soli radar and the massive price tag. We finally know the Pixel 4a is real, given the numerous leaks around it and now, we have the first set of camera samples from a pre-production Google Pixel 4a.
YouTuber Julio Lusson, who runs the channel TecnoLike Plus has published an entire camera review of the Google Pixel 4a, complete with camera samples. A few things that are confirmed through his post is that the Pixel 4a features the same primary camera as the Pixel 4. This means we get the Sony IMX 363 sensor with a resolution of 12.2 megapixels, paired with a lens that offers an aperture of f/1.7 and optical image stabilization. The single front-facing camera has a resolution of 8 megapixels and an aperture of f/2.0, the same sensor found on the front camera of the Pixel 3 (Review) and Pixel 3a.
The samples posted by the YouTuber show a very capable camera, something we’ve come to expect from the Pixel lineup of smartphones. In fact, the Google Pixel 4a also sports the Astrophotography mode which allows users to shoot photos of the night sky using just their smartphone. As long as there’s no light pollution and you’re pointing the phone at the right part of the sky, you can expect some amazing photos of the stars in the night sky or even a view of the Milky Way’s arms. You can see all the samples on Julio's website.
The Google Pixel 4a is rumoured to come sporting a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 SoC paired with 6GB of RAM. The phone is expected to only come in a single size, with a 5.81-inch display and a resolution of 2340x1080 and a 60Hz refresh rate. The phone is also expected to sport a 3080mAh battery. The phone is expected to be announced on May 22 for an expected price of $400.
Do note that the camera samples are all from the Pixel 4a running pre-production software
