Google Pixel 4a render appears on Google Store, but it's still not official
An announcement is currently expected at some point in early August – August 3, to be precise – but one mistake means the company now has even less to reveal.
Google has still not announced the Pixel 4a
Despite not introducing the smartphone today, the team running the Canadian Google Store (via 9To5Google) went ahead and published an official press render of the Google Pixel 4a in Just Black, which looks set to be the only color available at launch.
The render in question doesn’t reveal anything new because, as you may know, the device has already leaked extensively alongside its now-canceled Google Pixel 4a XL sibling. It does, however, represent the first official press render of the smartphone and corroborates many details.
Some of the highlights include the presence of a square camera module on the back that’s home to a single sensor and an LED flash. There is also a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner on the plastic back panel.
The front of the Google Pixel 4a, on the other hand, is equipped with a 5.8-inch punch-hole display that seemingly features uniform bezels. The wallpaper that Google has used corroborates the branding and its original plans to introduce the device at Google I/O on May 12.
Other details include an in-ear speaker along the edge of the frame, a volume rocker on the right side, and a mint-colored power key above the latter.
