Google has teased the Pixel 4A throughout its website and social media channels. The phone will be launching on August 3, promising long battery life and great camera capabilities.

The phone will be launching on August 3 and Google has teased a few of its features. Also Read – Google One app now offers free backups on phone

So, the Pixel 4A is launching on Monday. Google may simply reveal the phone on its website as there are no details of an online launch event. Availability at launch is also a mystery currently. However, based on the leaks, the phone could eventually launch in the US, UK and India. Do note that the Pixel 4A is supposed to be an iPhone SE rival succeeding the Pixel 3A from last year.
Last year’s Pixel 3A series helped Google achieve better sales figures for its smartphone division. The Pixel 3A’s $399 price allowed more consumers to experience Google’s great camera tunings. The phone used midrange specifications and lacked a few luxuries that the regular model offered. However, Google blessed it with timely software updates and clean Android experience.
Pixel 4A expectations
With the Pixel 4A, expectations are high. Leaks have suggested that the Pixel 4A will end up with similar midrange specifications. Google will be retaining its great camera experience from Pixel 4. Unlike the older model, the new one will have a bezel-less modern design with a punch-hole camera cutout. The display will use a 5.8-inch OLED screen with Full HD+ resolution.
The 4G variant is expected to use the Snapdragon 730 chip whereas the 5G version could use the Snapdragon 765. Leaks have suggested a combination of 6GB RAM and 128GB storage as standard. A 3080mAh battery is expected to keep it alive and there will be an 18W fast charging system.
