Pixel 4a Rumor Round-Up: Everything We Know Ahead of Launch



It’s been nearly an entire year since Google step foot into the mid-range smartphone phase with the disclosing of the Pixel 3a series at Google I/O final year. The company has canceled this year’s developer conference utterly. Yeah, there won’t even be an online event in gentle of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, if the rumor mill is to be believed, the Pixel 4a launch is still a go and is scheduled for sometime later in May.

Now, very similar to any other Google smartphone launched over the previous couple of years, nearly every little thing in regards to the Pixel 4a has leaked already. We already know all about Google’s upcoming mid-ranger, together with its design, internal hardware, and even the highlight feature – cameras. So, if you have been looking to read up on the entire leaks and rumors, look no additional as now we have compiled every little thing in a single place for you.


Right here’s every little thing you should know in regards to the Google Pixel 4a forward of launch:

Pixel 4a: Specs and Features

  • Design & Display

Beginning off with the design, Pixel 4a will still featurepolycarbonate construct as last year’s Pixel 3a. The rear digital camera now sits inside a square digital camera bump – identical as the Pixel 4. It seems pretty decent and trendy, together with the trendy new design on the front. I also like that Google has caught with the colored power button, which is a neat touch.

One factor that has been frequent amongst Google Pixels to date is the presence of a huge bezel at the top. The Pixel 3XL attempted to go hand-in-hand with the trend and added a notch but it was large and hideous. It seems like Google goes to finally offer a modern-looking phone within the form of Pixel 4a.

As you’ll be able to see within the leaked real-life images, Pixel 4a will feature a punch-hole cutout for the selfie digital camera on the top left. And I like that there are even bezels all-around the display. Pixel 4a will feature a 5.8-inch Full-HD+ (1080 x 2340) OLED display, providing good contrast and deeper blacks.

The one factor that bugs me though is the presence of a physical fingerprint sensor on the rear. The same was the case with last year’s Pixel 3a, even though it had an OLED display. I assumed Google would adopt an in-display fingerprint sensor this year with the Pixel 4a. Alas, that isn’t what the myriad of leaked renders and real-life images show off.

  • What’s Below the Hood?

Last year’s Pixel 3a series was powered by the Snapdragon 670 chipset. It was a decent mid-range chipset, an upgrade over the well-known Snapdragon 660 chipset.

Speaking about cameras, Google is tremendous assured in its computational images capabilities. The Pixel 3a, despite the fact that it isn’t versatile, is known to be among the finest camera telephones within the mid-range phase. Properly, Google Pixel 4a will most likely carry forward this title and wow customers because the camera {hardware} remains unchanged – when in comparison with the Pixel 3a.

As per the rumors, the Pixel 4a has a single rear camera, which is the same 12.2MP Sony IMX363 sensor that we noticed on the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3a – even the Poco F1. It has an f/1.73 aperture lens, 1.4µm pixel dimension, PDAF, and OIS support. The punch-hole homes an 8MP Sony IMX355 sensor with an f/2.0 aperture lens and 1.14µm pixel dimension. Nonetheless, it is going to be attention-grabbing to see the public reception in direction of a single camera phone among a sea of quad-camera mid-range phones.

  • Camera Samples

We have now hooked up solely a few footage under however head to this link to get a more in-depth have a look at the Pixel 4a’s digital camera high quality. Google might use the identical digital camera sensors as final yr however the ISP aboard the Snapdragon 730G is certain to translate to raised outcomes compared to the Snapdragon 670.

  • Battery & Charging

Lastly, Pixel 4a will doubtless feature3,080mAh battery with 18W fast-charging support. That is measly compared to the large 5,000mAh battery packs you find in a myriad of phones these days.

The smartphone won’t feature wireless charging. It might have been the feature that set Google’s mid-ranger other than different Android mid-range phones. Pixel 4a would have been able to stack up well towards the iPhone SE (2020) as effectively. Additionally, you will find a USB Type-C charging port on the backside and a 3.5mm audio jack on the top to round up the kitty.

Pixel 4a XL: Missing in Action!

Yeah, as the title suggests, Google will abandon the bigger ‘Pixel 4a XL’ variant and launch solely a single Pixel 4a this time around. You won’t see a Pixel 3a XL successor regardless that prototypes made their means on-line earlier this year.


The core specs of the Pixel 4a XL would have been the identical as the usual model, with the one improve being a twin rear digital camera setup. Sure, the Pixel 4a XL would have been the second phone in Google’s arsenal to host a twin rear-camera array – after last year’s Pixel 4.

If the rumors are to be believed, there won’t be a Pixel 4a XL. However, could we be in for a shock? We should look forward to the official unveiling. Till then, you’ll be able to try the Pixel 4a XL with a Pixel 4-like square digital camera bump.
