Talking about Google Pixel, the Pixel 4a was expected to arrive at Google I/O 2020, however, now that it is canceled, the release date appears to be unavailable and thus, we will have to wait for the device to go official.

Apparently, there’s nothing much known about the affordable Pixel 4a except a few tidbits here and here. It is highly speculated that Pixel 4a will be rolled out at a price tag of $399. Talking about the specs sheet, the upcoming phone is likely to arrive with a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and will probably sport a polycarbonate or plastic back panel. The device is unlikely to attract an edge-to-edge display although Google appears to have worked a lot to reduce the bezels and bring down top and chin considerably.

Furthermore, the device is likely to get a front single punch-hole camera setup while the rear will be a single camera setup arranged in a small squaricle camera bump resembling that of Pixel 4. It is likely to be the same camera specs possessed by Pixel 4 i.e. a 12.2MP sensor with f/1.7 aperture and 1.4micrometer sensor size while the front is likely to be an 8MP sensor with the same level of msg photography skills that Pixel devices are widely known for. Google Pixel 4a will probably sport a 5.81-inch OLED panel with a 60hz refresh rate and yes, it will be flat as a curved display would cost a lot more.

There’s a tonne of rumours around Pixel 4a hardware specs such as a device codenamed Sunfish appears to arrive with Snapdragon 730 with 6GB RAM and 64GB storage along with a 3,080mAh battery while there’s a different version that has Snapdragon 765G with 5G is doing the rounds as well. However, the Pixel 4a with 5G appears to be a prototype so we aren’t sure about it coming anytime soon.

Google’s Pixel 4a Review

This device is a tad bit of an improvement over the Pixel 3a by means of its battery life, affordable lower price, performance, an updated UFS 2.1 storage, an OLED display and a punch hole selfie front camera. The packaging of the phone does not come with earbuds, a case and a screen protector which is quite disappointing. The matte finish at the back looks great despite the camera bump. The phone is easy to hold and it is lightweight. The storage on this phone isn’t expandable and it also lacks a high refresh rate. It has a decent but not great audio output. Some might not find the single 12.2MP camera, 8 MP selfie camera and a dual-LED flash best for photography while there are several brands out there that offer better options in this department. Having said that, the 4K videos do look incredible shot via a Pixel 4a.
