Already leaks of the upcoming Google Pixel 4a have surfaced online and we covered it as well. The live images of the retail boxes proved that Google was preparing this for a long time but the Coronavirus pandemic has destroyed everything.
Google was forced to call off the Google I/O 2020 developer conference where it was supposed to launching this new mid-range device. According to Caschys Blog, the Google Pixel 4a will be available for purchase in Germany from May 22 onwards which is quite interesting.
So the conference which was originally scheduled for May 12-14 is the actual date when the device might still be launched via an online event maybe. This marks the date of availability of the device in Germany and Google will be launching the device to compete with the newly launched mid-range iPhone SE.
The probable launch date was reportedly leaked by internal documents from Vodafone Germany, which is dated for a May 22 launch of the Pixel 4a on its network which is still an ‘unverified rumour’ for now. Also this year we may not see a Pixel 4a XL as well.
Pixel 4a Leaked Specs:
Google Pixel 4a will come with a 5.81″ OLED screen of 2340×1080 pixel resolution, with a punch hole in the top-left corner. The whole body is made of plastic and at the back, it has a rectangle-shaped camera bump and a fingerprint sensor.
The device has a 12.2MP rear camera and an 8MP front camera. The selfie camera supports a FOV of 84-degree and the rear camera supports auto-focus and OIS/EIS. For video recording, the rear camera will offer five options – 720p at 240FPS, 1080p at 30FPS, 1080p at 60FPS, 1080p at 120FPS, and 4K at 30FPS. The front-facing camera will only allow recording in 1080p resolution at 30FPS.
The Pixel 4a will run on Android 10 and will get Android updates for three years. The device will come with Snapdragon 730 SoC and will support UFS 2.1 storage with at least two variants – 64GB and 128GB. Both the variants will have 6GB RAM.
The device will be powered with a 3800mAh battery and will support an 18W fast charging via USB Type-C. This time it will not support wireless charging. The Pixel 4a is said to be priced from $399 (€365).
Even though if it somehow makes its way to Germany it’s very unlikely to see it available throughout the world including in the US and India. The only thing the report might conclude is that the availability on May 22 seems that Google is gearing for the Pixel 4a and it might not be too long for the device to reach all markets.
