Google Pixel 4a, the future affordable smartphone from Google, has been headlining the gossip mill for a long time now. Its look, critical specifications, and even the retail box images have surfaced on the Internet, providing us with a fair idea that the launch is imminent.
Previously, the Pixel 4a was considered to launch at the I/O this year, but Google’s event reaches cancelled now. Now that Apple is now out with its by far the affordable iPhone SE 2020, Google appears preparing itself for the Pixel 4a launch. The Google Pixel 4a is supposed to launch sometime in May or June if the new signs are anything to go by.
Launch of Pixel 4a
Google’s I/O conference earlier scheduled for May month may have been dropped for this year, but the Mountain View-based company could take a page from Apple’s playbook and go for a digital launch of the Pixel 4a next month or so. If everything goes well, Google Pixel 4a should be out in mid-May or early-June.
Pixel 4a Specifications
According to news, the Google Pixel 4a could come with a 5.81-inch FHD+ OLED display with a single punch-hole. The smartphone could be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 SoC, pack a 12.2-megapixel rear camera, and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera.
There could be 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage without assistance for microSD cards. Much like the Pixel 3, Pixel 3a, and Pixel 4, the Pixel 4a could have eSIM support as well. Google Pixel 4a could also 3080mAh battery with 18W fast charging support.
Rumours about Pixel 4a?
Let us return what we have seen so far about the Pixel 4a. Some early rumours hinted the Pixel specifications, including a mid-range processor and, of course, the Pixel’s excellent cameras. There are some trade-offs, however, to confirm the pricing.
Moreover, the affordable Pixel smartphone for this year has leaked in multiple images, including the ones that were shared in a private Facebook group and those obtained from some hands-on. More so, the Pixel 4a retail boxes also leaked in images, suggesting that the smartphone is almost ready for shipping. But the launch timeline of the smartphone is in a dilemma.
As such, we also have some news about what Google has been doing to circumvent the production of its smartphones. Since China was under lockdown, owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, Google proposed the creation to Vietnam in the light of greater feasibility there, as per a Nikkei Asian Review report.
Now, Google is also apparently manufacturing Pixel 4a at its newly-shifted equipment in Vietnam, which could fast-track the production and withdraw any delays. The retail box images, which have not been verified for their authenticity yet, also allude to a closer launch timeline. For now, we do not know what these timelines could be.
