In May of last year, Google launched the Pixel 3A and. This is the first Pixel phone – and perhaps Google’s return to . Priced at hundreds of dollars less than the Pixel 3’s flagship flagship, the Pixel 3A phones shave basic features like wireless charging and water resistance. But it remains a useful alternative for Android users looking for a Pixel phone experience at a lower cost.
The strategic move worked and thethat summer. As such, we expect sequences on the Pixel 3A phones, which may be called the Pixel 4A and 4A XL, coming soon. Google has already said through an online event on June 3, and the same event could be used to announce the Pixel 4A. In addition, Google’s rivals have released several midtier handsets. In the month of April alone, Apple launched a new $ 399 , Samsung has announced the next midrange lineup and Motorola debuted sub- $ 300 at . Now more than ever, phone makers are targeting people at lighter budgets, which would otherwise only be held on their old phones for another year.
In anticipation of Google’s expected announcement of the Pixel 4A and 4A XL, we bring together the most compelling and interesting gossip about the devices. And until the launch happens, check back often as we update the rotation.
The price of the Pixel 4A: $ 399 looks most likely
The Pixel 3A last year cost $ 399, £ 399 and AU $ 649; the 3A XL costs $ 479, £ 469 and AU $ 799. It would not be surprising if Google maintained the same pricing model this year for its Pixel 4A phones. The reasons are two: Increasing the price of a device specifically geared towards more budget-conscious users would be a strange move. Secondly, premium phone makers seem to consider $ 399 a good price tag. Apple’s new iPhone SE, for example, is $ 399 just like Samsung’s Samsung A51, which is the most advanced phone of the latest Evan Blass the same price was mentioned.. A price posted by tech leaker
Pixel 4A runs on Android 10, maybe Android 11?
Google usually unveiled its latest mobile OS in May, at the annual manufacturer’s annual conference known as Google I / O
. Due to COVID-19 concerns, however, the in-person . Instead, the company will delete the beta version of . Google could use the same event to announce the Pixel 4A, as it did last year for the Pixel 3A and Google I / O 2019 (more on the possible launch date below). Optimistically, the Pixel 4A can run the final version of Android 11 right out of the box. However, the timeline may be too short. What could happen instead is that the Pixel 4A is running Android 10 as soon as it gets into users’ hands, but will be updated to Android 11 later. This will make sense since last year, the Pixel 3A ran Android 9, which will be released to the public in 2018, despite the third beta version of Android 10 announced the same day as the Pixel 3A on I / O.
Pixel 4A release date: May May or June
With the launch of the Pixel 3A the only reference to continue, it is difficult to determine an exact launch date for the Pixel 4A. If Google maintains that same month at least, we can estimate that the Pixel 4A will be announced sometime in May. A report from the German site Caschys Blog, went one step further and said the phone had been calledin Europe via mobile carrier Vodafone.
Since Google has announced that it will announce Android 11 at an online event on June 3, however, it could also mean that the phone will be released later. It will make sense that tech companies typically do not hold two exceptional products launching a month apart.
Pixel 4A Design: Maybe hole-punch camera, headphone jack
There’s no way of knowing what the Pixel 4A officially looks like at this point, butfrom Indian tech website 91Mobiles present the phone with a hole-punch camera and a headphone jack. The hole-punch camera will be compatible with the billboard mockups mentioned earlier, and a stylish design featured on the recent Galaxy S20 and OnePlus 8 phones. Required leaked images of Google’s Pixel 4A wallpaper, reported by XDA Developers and the YouTube channel TecnoLike Plus, also suggest a hole-punch camera. Keeping a headphone jack wouldn’t be too unexpected since the Pixel 3A also has one. But as more and more phones do not have audio ports, including the Pixel 4, Google may either end up maintaining it or leaving it to the Pixel 4A.
Pixel 4A camera: Can have the same dual camera as the Pixel 4
One of the most compelling things about the Pixel 3A is the availability of the same great camera as the Pixel 3, and it makes sense for Google to pack the Pixel 4A with the same camera hardware as the Pixel 4. That’s can include two rear cameras (a 12.2-megapixel standard camera and a 16-megapixel telephoto lens) as well as an 8-megapixel front camera. But don’t be too surprised if Google decides to mix it up by not copying itself. Last year, it did not bring the second-wide front facing camera on the Pixel 3 to the Pixel 3A, and introduced a time-lapse video mode on the Pixel 3A that is new to Pixel phones.
The Pixel 4A and 5G connectivity?
When Google launched theat in October 2019, the company and haven’t revealed any 5G plans since. Wonder if the company has decided that the midlevel Pixel 4A will be its first 5G phone; one would think it would save a marquee feature for the upcoming flagship Pixel 5 (expected in October). But thanks to the more affordable Qualcomm , cheaper phones can have 5G connectivity and cheaper 5G phones already available, such as and the , so it’s not out of the question.
