With its expected price tag of under $400 (Rs 30,000 approx), the Pixel 4a will rival iPhone SE 2020 variant which made its debut in India last month. And unlike Google, Apple managed to ship the units and get them selling as well. The delay for Pixel 4a could have likely played into Apple’s hands.
