Google’s mid-range device Pixel 4a is reportedly delayed again. Last set of reports had suggested that Google Pixel 4a will be unveiled alongside the Android 11 launch which is happening on June 3. Now, according to the tweet from leaker Jon Prosser, the Pixel 4a launch is delayed again. Google’s current plan for the Pixel 4a announcement is now July 13. It is tipped to launch only in 4G version, and not 5G. Also Read - Google Pixel 4A could be priced at $349, Pixel 5 at $699, reveals survey
Previous reports never had any evidence of Google Pixel 4a XL, so we are only looking at one phone model, the smaller Google Pixel 4a. Prosser tweeted the information on Thursday noting that Google is ready to ship the device, but the decision of delaying the launch is based on the market analysis.

Google hasn’t confirmed its launch date yet but it’s likely that the device is ready. We have heard Sundar Pichai talking at length about the Pixel hardware. It is almost confirmed that the new Pixel phone will ship with the latest Android version out-of-the-box.
Pixel 4a Rumors
The company first came out with the Pixel 3a series in 2019, making its entry into the mid-range segment with a device that was powered by the Snapdragon 675 processor. In India this phone was priced around Rs 40,000 putting it in a tough fight with the OnePlus 7 series as well other affordable flagship devices.
This year’s Google Pixel 4a is not expected to be any different. According to rumors, this phone will sport a 5.8-inch Full-HD display and come packing with the Snapdragon 730 processor, paired with 4 or 6GB RAM. It will come with a single 12-megapixel rear camera, and 8-megapixel shooter on the front. It will get a 3,080mAh battery that will support 18W fast charging.
