Google’s Pixel 4A, which was teased all the way back from December has been finally revealed. Those rumors back then turn out to be true as this year we are not getting an XL version, but a phone with a price tag that takes us back to Google’s “Nexus” days.
In command is the Snapdragon 730G chipset coupled up with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, which seems sufficient for a phone that doesn’t have any microSD card slot.
The front has a 5.81-inch OLED panel with a 1080 x 2340 pixel resolution and a tall 19.5:9 aspect ratio. Then there’s a punch-hole that holds an 8MP f/2.0 selfie camera at the top-left corner of the screen. The display, on paper, looks big but with minimal bezels, the phone looks pretty compact to hold.
At the back, the phone sees a square-tile that mimics the look of the phone with four cameras, but in reality, it’s just a single shooter. It’s a 12.2MP 1/2.55″ sensor with large 1.4µm pixels and pretty fast f/1.7 lens behind that borrows all of the features from the Pixel 4 like Night Sight, Portrait Mode, and Top Shot. Plus, it has an OIS that prevents the phone from shooting shaky videos.
The Google Pixel 4a powers on an average 3,140mAh battery, which is still bigger than that of Pixel 4, and can be charged via 18W fast charger. The phone retains the 3.5mm headphone jack.
As for the pricing, the Pixel 4A is priced at $349 in the US with sales beginning from August 20. The phone will cost £349 in the UK and €340 in Germany. The Pixel 4a is also launching in Australia, Canada, India, France, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Singapore, Spain, and Taiwan. The phone, though, will be available in Black color only.
Despite the fact that the phone is a steal for what it packs, especially in that camera front, it’s sad that the Pixel 4A will not launch in Nepal, period.
