Recent reports have proven to be correct – the Google Pixel 4a, a pretty late mid-range camera phone, will indeed be unveiled on August 3rd. Google has released a teaser for the announcement, officially confirming this date. There is also a very provocative inscription about the long-awaited phone.
The Pixel 4a was originally supposed to debut during Google I / O 2020, but the event itself was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Why the Pixel 4a lasted a full three months is anyone’s guess. By the way, the insider, who last week named this date, previously claimed that the Pixel 4a will go on sale only in October and in the only black color. And if the actual sales of the Pixel 4a begin only in October, then the number of potential buyers who are still waiting for the new product could be seriously reduced.
Neither the design nor the specs of the Pixel 4a have been a secret for a long time. All this has been discussed many times and has already set the teeth on edge. For those who have already forgotten, let’s recall the main parameters of the Pixel 4a:
5.81-inch OLED screen with 2340 x 1080 pixels with an 8MP front camera opening in the upper left corner.SoC Qualcomm Snapdragon 730.6 GB of RAM 64 or 128 GB of flash memory, with UFS instead of the slow eMMC used in the Pixel 3A and 3A XL; 3080mAh battery with 18W fast charging; 12.2MP single main camera with 4K 30fps recording; Rear fingerprint reader; 3.5mm headphone jack.
The Pixel 4a will compete with the current best-selling iPhone SE and Samsung Galaxy A51.
Last year, the Pixel 3a was priced at $ 399 for the base version at launch, while it was available on sale at a $ 100 discount. At the same time, information about a lower price of $ 349 for the basic version was leaked earlier, which may save the situation somewhat.
Earlier this month, Google stopped selling last year’s best-selling Pixel 3A and Pixel 3A XL.
