The Google Pixel 4A is also expected to feature an 8-megapixel camera on the front and a square camera module on the back. This module is expected to house a 12-megapixel sensor along with an LED flash. The phone reportedly will also feature a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and a 3.5mm audio jack. The smartphones will likely come in 64GB and 128GB storage variants. Further, they will likely be available in two color variants. These are ‘just black’ and ‘barely blue’.
The search giant was expected to introduce the budget smartphone at its annual I/O keynote. However, the annual developer conference, previously scheduled for between May 12 and May 14, has been canceled. As a result, the launch date of Pixel 4A was pushed.
With the Pixel 4A, Google is expected to challenge Apple’s second-generation iPhone SE. It is expected to be cheaper than Apple’s offering when it becomes official next month. In the US, both devices are expected to start at $399. The release date is said to have been spotted in the internal documents at Vodafone. It mentions a May 22 release date but we recommend taking this with a grain of salt.
