According to Front Page Tech host Jon Prosser, consumers will have to wait until July 13 before getting their hands on the new smartphone from Google. The smartphone is expected to come in two colour options - "Just Black" and "Barely Blue" colours. However, it seems like that may not be the case as Prosser's leaks and predictions have nearly always been correct.
The Pixel 4a was initially expected to make its debut on Google I / O 2020 before the coronavirus pandemic forced its cancellation, at which point it was delayed until June.
"We're super committed to it for the long run". Jon Prosser also "kills" the 5G rumours by saying that the phone will only use 4G connectivity.
Google's cheaper Pixel phone is coming a bit later than originally anticipated.
What this implies is that the Pixel 5 may not be launched in October as is tradition. The USP of Google's Pixel devices is their cameras and vanilla Android experience with regular software updates. In a tweet, Prosser said, "Pixel 4a". Theres a 5.81-inch OLED screen with FHD+ resolution.
Prosser didn't have anything to add about the price or the specifications, but previous leaks have told us that the Pixel 4a will ship with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 CPU, 6GB of RAM, up to 128GB of internal storage, 3080 mAh battery with 18W wired fast charging, and 12.2-megapixel rear-facing camera. But the main differentiator between these phones and the Pixel 4a will be the price; Pixel 4 starts at $799, and the Pixel 4a is likely to start at $399.
What About the XL Model? Alongside the new iPhone SE, it's simply one of the best camera phones you can buy under $400. However, Amazon is taking us back to the Nexus days, offering the Pixel 3a and 3a XL smartphones at $279 and $319 respectively, the lowest prices we've seen yet. But that will not arrive until later this year or may be in the first half of next year, according to some reports.
