Last year, Google created a new segment by launching the Pixel 3a. The ‘a’ series were budget-oriented smartphones with mid-range specs. But since they’re Pixel devices, they perhaps feature the best camera you can find in that segment.
This year, Google has launched its successor – the Pixel 4a. There were a lot of leaks and rumors about the device. And today, the smartphone is officially launched.
Google has decided to keep things very simple this year. The Pixel 4a is powered by the Snapdragon 730G, 6GB RAM, 128GB internal storage and a 3140 mAh battery. The device has a 5.81″ 1080p OLED display with a hope-punch display.
The device also has a Titan M security module and a 3.5 mm headphone jack as well. Google hasn’t experimented with the fingerprint scanner and decided to put that at the rear.
Pixel 4a Camera
The 4a has the same 12MP camera module from last year’s Pixel 4. So you can expect some pretty decent camera performance from the device. The phone also gets optical image stabilization.
The 4a gets support for HDR+ with dual exposure controls, Portrait Mode, Top Shot, Night Sight with astrophotography capabilities, and fused video stabilization as well. On the front, there’s an 8MP camera with an f/2.0 lens.
The Pixel 4a is available for $349. You can pre-order the device in the US on the Google Store and on Google Fi. It will be available from August 20 through the Google Store, BestBuy.com, Amazon and other stores in the country.
Google will launch the Pixel 4a in India around Diwali. The company has not revealed any pricing details for India as of now.
There’s also Pixel 4a 5G with the same specs but a slightly larger display. It will be available for $499. You can read more about the Pixel 4a 5G by clicking below.
