Google Pixel 4a could finally launch on August 3 after being delayed multiple times in the past few months. The delay in the announcement was also a result of the Coronavirus outbreak in different parts of the world which led to the cancellation of Google I/O 2020 event, where the Pixel 4a was expected to break cover. Nevertheless, according to fresh rumours, Google could be readying the Pixel 4a for an unveiling on August 3.
According to Jon Prosser who has been spot on with some of earlier leaks, the Pixel 4a will be launched on August 3. In a tweet, Prosser reveals that Google’s Pixel 4a launch is “100% happening on August 3”. There’s currently no word on whether or not the Pixel 4a will make it to India anytime soon. Google Pixel 4 didn’t launch in India due to the restrictions in the country on the commercial use of Soli radar and there has been a lot of speculation for the Pixel 4a in India as the successor to the Pixel 3a.
Google’s upcoming mid-range smartphone has previously been subject to numerous leaks and here’s everything we know about it.
Google Pixel 4a features a 5.81-inch Full HD+ (2340 x 1080 pixels) resolution and uses an OLED panel. There’s is a punch-hole cutout in the top-left corner for the 8MP front-facing camera with an 84-degree field-of-view.
The phone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 chipset with an octa-core CPU and Adreno 618 GPU. This is paired with 6GB RAM and 64GB/128GB storage options to choose from. The 4a does have the company’s proprietary Titan M security chip but still misses out on the Pixel Neural Core. Also missing is the array of Soli radar chip and other sensors that debuted on the Pixel 4 last year.
This, hopefully, indicates that Google could bring the Pixel 4a to India as the presence of Soli chip earlier on the Pixel 4 didn’t allow it to be certified for commercial use according to Indian laws.
Pixel 4a has a single 12.2MP camera with support for both OIS and EIS, while the front-facing camera is reportedly the same as the Pixel 3a. The phone’s rear camera is capable of recording in 4K at 30fps, 1080p at 30/60/120fps and 720p at up to 240fps while the selfie camera can shoot Full HD videos at 30fps.
The phone comes with a 3.5mm headphone jack and could come in two colours-- Just Black and Barely Blue. The 4a is pre-loaded with the new Google Assistant and other features like Now Playing. It also comes with an assurance of getting Android updates for the next three years.
The Pixel 4a is fitted with a 3,080mAh battery with support for 18W fast charging but skips out on wireless charging.
