Google Pixel 4a detailed in full before launch: specs, cameras, price, availability
The Google Pixel 4a is cheaper than the Apple iPhone SE
Leaked billboard campaigns revealed that Google initially hoped to offer the Pixel 4a for $399 in the United States. Following countless delays and the launch of Apple’s popular $399 iPhone SE, though, Google has switched strategy.
The company now plans to sell the smartphone for only $349 in the United States at launch. And to further incentivize customers, the Google Pixel 4a will arrive equipped with an impressive 128GB of internal storage as standard rather than 64GB.
Unfortunately, not everybody in the world will be able to get their hands on the new midrange device. The flagship Pixel series has only ever been available in a handful of countries, but the Pixel 4a will be even harder to come by.
A compact display and a good Snapdragon chipset
That results in an overall size of 144x69.4x8.2mm for the smartphone and a weight of 143g. Those numbers make it smaller than the Google Pixel 3a (151.3 x 70.1 x 8.2 mm) but bigger than the 2020 iPhone SE (138.4 x 67.3 x 7.3 mm).
Accompanying everything mentioned above is the upper-midrange Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G chipset coupled with 6GB of RAM. That chipset has previously been used inside the Poco X2 and certain variants of the Samsung Galaxy A71.
Other details include the presence of a 3,140mAh battery backed up by 18W fast charging. A dual speaker system, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and the Titan M security chip are included too.
Google has not cut corners with the camera
The Google Pixel 4a is fitted with the same 12.2-megapixel main camera that graced the flagship Pixel 4 series last year. It boasts an f/1.7 aperture, optical image stabilization, and dual pixel phase detection autofocus.
As with the original model, Night Sight will be on board to enable incredible low-light photos. Support for 4K video at 30fps and 1080p video at 120Fps is expected as well.
