Google has consistently delivered since the introduction of its pixel smartphones. The devices weren’t all first class especially the Pixel 4 disappointed, but they came regularly. In the course of the Pixel 4a, however, sand got into the transmission.
Pixel devices that have an “a” in their name are generally significantly cheaper than the main versions of Google smartphones. The Pixel 3a turned out to be a stroke of luck since many components could be taken over by Pixel 3 and this accordingly offered a significantly more interesting price/performance ratio.
Where’s the pixel 4a?
The Pixel 4a has been buzzing around in the rumor mill for months, and there were first reports of this at the beginning of the year. It should actually be revealed in May as part of the Google I/O developer conference. But it was canceled due to the corona and there was also a shift in the Pixel 4a launch.
But the introduction of the latest Google smartphone was apparently postponed several times because experts have been waiting for a concrete sign of life for the Pixel 4a for weeks. In a week, however, it should definitely be ready, at least the usually well-informed Leaker Jon Prosser claims. Prosser wrote on Twitter yesterday that August 3 would be the launch day. He is absolutely sure of that because he added a “100 percent” to the tweet. The Leaker also addresses the many postponements and delays and says: “The only question is: do you still care? Or did you delay the thing too much?”
In any case, the technical details have been known for a long time: The Pixel 4a will have a 5.81-inch FHD + OLED display, including a Snapdragon 730, 6GB RAM, 128GB internal memory and a 3080mAh battery. The device, which is likely to cost $350, should also have a 12.2MP camera at the back and 8MP optics at the front.
