Google Pixel 4 is a flagship phone from the tech giant and its latest iteration of Android smartphones. The company has tried to offer a phone that represents the best of the Android world with AI wizardry, machine learning and flagship photography features. Overall, it’s a good phone for photography for those who are fans of flagship phones.
However, if you don’t want to spend extra pounds, it’s better for you to wait for Google’s Pixel 4A. Google comes with the idea of affordable versions in 2019 for Pixel 3 and 3XL with little changes in specs. The same was anticipated from Google when it released Pixel 4A in October 2019.
This article represents the expected features of Google Pixel 4A. This review is based on the leaks and expected features that Google may offer with Pixel 4A.
The Pixel 4a will differ in certain aspects from Pixel 4 and is expected to have its own personality. It is anticipated to debut with the punch-hole design compared to Pixel’s traditional look. This also means that Pixel 4A will not have the motion-sensing feature and won’t have a large bezel top.
Instead, Google Pixel 4A would feature a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. Another expected change in Pixel 4A is a headphone jack, possibly 3.5mm.
It is expected that Google will go with the OLED display tech for the Pixel 4A, whereas the screen size of Pixel 4A will be 5.8 inches with 2340 x 1080 resolution. However, the premium 90Hz refresh rate is likely to be absent in Pixel 4A. According to the leaks, the Pixel 4A could have a lower refresh rate of 60Hz.
We could only speculate about the Pixel 4A’s chipset right now. The best guess is that it could feature the Snapdragon 730 with Android 10. A benchmarking test indicates that Google’s Pixel 4A would have 64GB storage with a whopping 6GB RAM, which is impressive.
The phone could lack external microSD card space which means that the user won’t be able to boost the Pixel 4A’s memory. However, it is expected that Google may launch another version of Pixel 4A with 128GB storage. Another speculation is that the phone may have a 3080mAh battery.
Pixel 4A is expected to mimic the camera quality and features of Pixel 4. It is predicted that the phone would have a single 12MP and a punch-hole front camera. There is a minute difference between Pixel 4A and Pixel 4 in terms of image quality.
Expected Release and Price
The Pixel 4A was expected to be introduced in May at Google IO 2020. Unfortunately, the event has been postponed due to the coronavirus outburst and there’s no clear sign when Google is going to introduce it. The company may release Pixel 4A through an online gathering but it’s highly unlikely to happen.
The price of Google Pixel 4 was less than the Pixel 3. So, the price of Pixel 4A is also expected to be lower than Pixel 3A which was £399.
The Pixel 4A is a better phone with better specs if the leaks turn out to be true. The high-quality camera and introduction of fingerprint scanner are other major attractions for Android users. Plus, its low-price would attract many users who are waiting for Pixel 4A’s release.
