“Google Pixel 4a is expected to come with Snapdragon 730 SoC, Android 11 OS, and a physical fingerprint sensor”
Google Pixel 4a and Pixel 4a XL smartphones were expected to go official at the I/O 2020 developers conference that was scheduled for May 12th. However, the Moutain View giant had cancelled the event in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak, but mentioned that it’s still exploring ways to connect. So we may see an online-only event on May 12th, where the company will announce new developments to Android and core Google apps. The company is also expected to launch the rumoured Google Pixel 4a series at I/O 2020, and now we have a couple of alleged live images of the phone that reveal its design in its full glory.
Talking about the Google Pixel 4a live-images, there is a single-punch hole cutout at the top left corner to house the selfie camera and extremely narrow bezels on all corners except for a sizeable chin beneath the screen. There is a single camera placed in the square module along with an LED flash at the back. It has a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor that was missing on the original Pixel 4 and round edges for a comfortable grip in hands. The design is in-line with the renders that are exclusively published by 91mobiles back in December.
Earlier reports have suggested the Pixel 4a will have codenamed “sunfish”, be powered by a Snapdragon 730 SoC and doesn’t come with 5G connectivity. The phone is likely to boot Android 11 OS, as discovered by the AOSP branch. Moreover, it is said to flaunt a 5.7-inch or 5.8-inch flat display, and it isn’t clear if it would come with Project Soli-based Motion Sense tech, that was unveiled on the Pixel 4-series. The Google Pixel 4a-series should come with at least 4GB of RAM and 64GB internal storage and is expected to retain the 3.5mm audio jack. Unfortunately, not much else is known about the Pixel 4a at the moment, but we should come across more information soon.
