Last year, many were surprised when Google released a mid-range pixel device. With a price tag below $ 400, the Pixel 3a was quickly named the best affordable camera phone on the market because it brought most of the camera technicians loved in the flagship Pixel 3 for almost half the cost. Google plans to continue this series in 2020 with a phone that will be launched very soon.
The Pixel 4a appears to be a worthy upgrade for Pixel 3a owners who are looking for more performance and a better camera for less than $ 500. Note that Google may drop the XL version of this phone. This would lower production costs and help maintain the separation between the two pixel arrays, but could alienate those who prefer larger screens.

The Google Pixel 4a will be the first Pixel device to run a Qualcomm Snapdragon 700 series chipset, an SoC that does much of the performance and efficiency of the flagship chipset 800 series at an affordable price. It also comes with a new punch display that gives it a flagship look when cutting the top and bottom bezels. The headphone jack remains.
Google Pixel 4a should be announced during Google I / O 2020, which runs from May 12th to 14th, 2020. New reports say that Google will re-produce the phone in Vietnam, thanks in part to the coronavirus outbreak in China. Production will start in April, indicating a release in May, probably on the same day as the announcement.

- Pre-Order Date: N / A
- Announcement Date: May 12, 2020
We believe that the former is pixel 4a and the latter is pixel 5. If the starting price was $ 349, it would mean the starting storage capacity . will be 128 GB since it is the same price Stephen Hall heard for the 128 GB Pixel 4a.
The memory will be UFS 2.1 instead of eMMC for faster read and write speeds. We don't expect support for expandable storage because Google never included it in the Pixel series.
- Memory available: 128 GB
- Expandable memory: no
- Standard: UFS 2.1
According to Stephen Hall thinks Google undercuts the new iPhone SE and sets the price for the 128 GB model at $ 349. Google confirmed this again by asking users who asked about a new Google Pixel phone with a headphone jack and plastic case that started at $ 349.
Like its predecessor, the Pixel 4a should have a case made entirely of polycarbonate plastic. The cheaper material keeps costs down. It is rumored that there are three colors: clear white, only black and hardly any blue.
- Frame: Polycarbonate
- Finish: Only black, hardly blue, clear white
With its smaller frame, the Pixel 4a can enlarge the display and at the same time reduce the height and width of the phone. It is a bit thicker at 0.32 inches, which in our opinion is an indication of a larger battery.
Last year, Google announced the Pixel product line that extends support for all four major U.S. mobile operators. We expect the same support for Pixel 4a to continue along with US Cellular and Google Fi. We currently don't know if AT&T will sell it directly this year.

Technically no skin is executed on the pixel 4a. However, this is not a current Android open source project. Thanks to Google’s exclusive pixel features, pixel devices use more pixel skin than pure Android, although most of us still believe it’s standard Android. Expect features like the Recorder app, Call Call, Now Playing and other distinctive Google features.
- Version: Stock Android (Pixel version)
Gone are the relatively large bezels of the Pixel 3a, replaced by a punch display with the front-facing camera. This will reduce the top bezel, increasing the screen size to 5.8 inches while reducing the length and width of the phone. The hole is in the upper left corner.
The resolution is 2340 x 1080, a slightly higher aspect ratio than the predecessor. The 90 Hz refresh rate of the Pixel 4 is not divided, 60 Hz is selected instead. There are no solo radar sensors for Motion Sense or sensors to activate face unlock.

According to XDA this will be Pixel 4a use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730. Not only is this the first Pixel device t o Use this SoC, but one of only a handful of US-linked smartphones. This is an 8-nanometer process with a clock rate of 2.2 GHz on its gold cores.
Rumor has it that Google will increase the RAM to 6 GB. Worried about performance? Thanks to XDA, we have a rough idea of the performance, which is slightly below that of Pixel 3 XL and much better than that of Pixel 3a from last year.
The Hexagon 688 DSP is more powerful than the one included in the Snapdragon 845. which means that AI improvement will be quick. GeekBench values are higher in single-core applications than in Snapdragon 845, but much lower in multi-core applications. This means that they are great for games, but not for video editing.
- Memory: 6 GB LPDDR4X
- Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 730
- Chip size: 8 nanometers
- CPU frequency: 2.2 GHz (2x Kyro 470 Gold) + 1.8 GHz (6x Kyro 470 silver)

- GPU frequency: 700
The Pixel 4a is supplied with a 3.080 mAh battery. This is a relatively small number, but given the current-friendly SoC and the reasonable 1080p display, this should still correspond to a good battery life in practice. And if you're inevitably running out, it should support both Quick Charge 4+ and USB Power Delivery with the ability to charge up to 18W. Wireless charging support is unlikely.
- Battery: rechargeable lithium-ion
- ] Capacity: 3.080 mAh
- Wired charging: Yes, quick charge 4 +, USB PD (18 W)
- Wireless charging: No
- Reverse wireless charging: no
It is rumored that the front camera is an 8 MP sensor with a pixel size of 1.22 µm and an aperture of 1: 2.0, as can also be found in Pixel 3a. The main difference is the position of the camera, which is now housed in the display instead of the top bezel. For videos, you can record up to 1080p at 30 fps.

The Pixel 4a is supplied with the same primary sensor as the 3a and 4, the Sony IMX363. This camera has 12.2 MP, a pixel size of 1.4 µm and an aperture of 1: 1.8. Since the same component as the Pixel 4 is used, the difference is minimal. The image quality of the Pixel 4a is somewhat poorer due to the lack of a neural core and the less powerful image signal processor in the Snapdragon 730 SoC.  Like the Pixel 4, the camera is optically and electronically stabilized. It offers most of the camera functions of the Pixel 4, including the improved night vision device 2.0, Top Shot, HDR + and Super Res Zoom.
According to @Onleaks, the camera module (which is similar in design to the Pixel 4) will contain additional sensors that help with photography and videography, although none have been specified. Our best guess would be a zoomable microphone and possibly a ToF sensor for better portraits.

The Pixel 4a should, despite its weaker SoC, than many other competitors again lead the charts on DxOMark with its video score. Video recording should be limited to 4K at 30 fps due to the SoC and limited internal memory, just like pixel 4.
- Resolution: 720p, 1080p and 4K
- Maximum frame rate: 60 fps at 1080p and 30 fps at 4K
- slow motion: yes, 720p at 240 fps, 1080p at 120 fps

Audio  Das Pixel 4a will again have a headphone jack, making it a tempting offer for those who like both wired earphones and the Pixel-Rei hey love. Stereo speakers should also return, although they don't point forward like the Pixel 3.

According to Stephen In the Hall Google removes the pressure-sensitive edge known as Active Edge . This is the first Pixel phone that cannot be pressed to access the Google Assistant. And unlike the Pixel 4, no facial recognition is used, but a fingerprint scanner mounted on the back.
- Sensors: Accelerometer, ambient light, barometer, compass, gyroscope, proximity
The Pixel 4a supports Beidou, Galileo, GLONASS and GPS. We see no evidence of dual frequency support, but it could happen.
- GPS: yes
- aGPS: yes
- Glonass: yes
- BeiDou: no
- Galileo: yes
- QZ no
The Google Pixel 4a uses a Snapdragon X15 LTE model for a download speed of up to 800 Mbit / s and an upload of 150 Mbit / s. The Snapdragon 730 supports up to 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 5), although we expect Google to limit Wi-Fi connectivity to 802.11ac (Wi-Fi 5).
- Wi-Fi: 802.11 a / b / g / n / ac 2×2 MIMO 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz
- Bluetooth: 5.0 + LE
