After so much delay, Google finally launched the Pixel 4a.
In addition to the Pixel 4a, the company also announced the Pixel 5.
The Pixel 4a was presented in two variants – Pixel 4a and Pixel 4a 5G. Google also announced that the Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5 will not be launched in India and will soon only be available in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, France, Germany, Japan, Taiwan and Australia.
The Pixel 4a will definitely be launched on the Indian market, but pricing in India is expected to be announced in October 2020.
Google Pixel 4 pricing, availability
Google Pixel 4a offers 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage and costs $ 349 (about Rs 26,300). The smartphone can now be pre-ordered in the USA and will be delivered from August 20. The prices for Pixel 4a in India are not yet known. At the moment we only know that it will be launched in October and will be sold via flipkart.
The smartphone comes in just a black color option.
Google Pixel 4a 5G is priced at $499 (approx. Rs 37,400) in the US.
Google Pixel 4a: Specs and Features
We have seen the Pixel 4a in numerous leaks to date. It has a matte black finish, which is complemented by the accented on / off switch, the fingerprint sensor and a square camera module with a single sensor on the back.
On the front of the Google Pixel 4a is a 5.81-inch Full HD + AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 60 Hz. The display of the middle pixel has no higher refresh rate than its flagship sibling.
The panel has an aspect ratio of 19.5: 9 and a resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels. The highlight here, however, must be the hole cutout in the top left.
Pixel 4a is the first Pixel smartphone with a punch-hole cutout and it houses an 8MP selfie sensor on the front.
On the front of the camera, Google sticks to a single 12.2 MP (1: 1.7) sensor on the back – just like the predecessor. It comes with (optical image stabilization) OIS and EIS in tow. The square cutout also contains the LED flash. The functions of the marquee camera such as portrait mode, night vision and others are in tow.
The Snapdragon 730G chipset, which can also be found on board the Realme X2 and the Redmi K20, drives the Pixel 4a under the hood.
It is paired with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of built-in memory, which, unlike many inexpensive phones, cannot be expanded. The custom Titan M security chip is also on board.
We are talking about a pixel smartphone, so we have to mention the software. Vanilla Android 10 runs instantly on the Pixel 4a, including some pixel-specific features like the dictation machine, the new Google Assistant UI for light bars, and more.
It is also immediately ready for the beta version of Android 11, so you can test the new permission model, bubbles, native screen recordings and much more.
Pixel 4a is equipped with a 3,140 mAh battery with 18 W quick charge function via the USB Type-C connection below. It’s also a relief that the smartphone has a 3.5mm headphone jack at the top.
[UPDATE] – Google has confirmed that Pixel 4a will come to India in October. Both price and availability details will be announced at a later date. The device will also be available exclusively from Flipkart in India. You can find the microsite for the phone here on the e-tailer’s website.
