OnePlus and Google’s new launches are in a bracket of affordable smartphones.
Highlights of the Story
- Pixel 4a goes on sale in India in October.
- OnePlus Nord delayed its open sale to August 6th.
A flagship-like experience in the new smartphones is a part of the new smartphone. Here’s how you can compare the two smartphones.
Display and RAM
Pixel 4a features a 5.81-inch OLED with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio, and a Gorilla Glass protection. Whereas, Nord comes with a 6.44-inch Fluid AMOLED with a
20:9 aspect ratio, and a Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection. However, the refresh rate of Nord is 90Hz compared to Pixel’s 4a 60Hz.
For RAM, Pixel 4a has a 6GB RAM variant. On the other hand, Nord has two variants of 8GB/12GB RAM.
Pixel 4a is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G compared to Nord’s Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G. Nord is 5G enabled whereas Pixel 4a is only 4G enabled in the base variant which will come to India. The Pixel 4a’s 5G variant will not be coming to India.
Pixel 4a and Nord run on Android version 10. But, Nord has its own skin, Oxygen OS 10.5 running on top.
Battery and Storage
Nord’s packing a battery of 4,115mAh, and a Warp Charge 30W. Whereas, Pixel 4a packs a 3,140mAh with an 18W charging option.
In terms of storage, Pixel comes with 128GB of onboard storage and no expandable option. Nord comes in two variants of 128GB / 256GB.
Nord has a rear quad-cam set-up of 48MP main, 8MP ultra-wide, 2MP macro, 5MP depth along with a dual selfie camera of 32MP wide, 8MP ultra-wide lens.
Pixel 4a only comes with a 12.2 MP main camera and a front camera of 8MP. Though, this itself does not compare the camera quality. But with respect to the specs, Nord seems to have a superior experience. At the same time, we cannot dispense off Google’s extremely good quality cameras.
These phones are similar in many ways, yet different. Nord is Nord offering a great value for money considering you get a larger display, more powerful hardware, and 5G in a design that’s a little more premium.
Whereas Pixel 4a offers a great camera experience, however, and while it doesn’t offer as many cameras, often the performance is better. It’s slightly less powerful and there’s no 5G enabled support.
It’s not hard to lean towards Nord but Pixel 4a offers a great deal for those wanting a compact handset.
But as of now, even looking at the specs sheet, we cannot make a final choice. As of now, we can wait until we try both the phone side by side for a better comparison.
