“There’s a good chance the Google Pixel 4a Geekbench listing could be fake, because it is unlikely that the phone would run on a dated Exynos 8895”
Update: As pointed out by XDA Developers’ Mishaal Rahman, the device is the Samsung Galaxy S8 and not the Pixel 4a.
Google Pixel 4a renders revealed a Pixel 4-like square camera module on the back with a single sensor, a punch-hole display to accommodate the front-facing camera and slim bezels. Now, the Google pixel 4a has surfaced on Geekbench revealing some interesting specifications. The benchmark site has listed the phone with a Samsung Exynos 8895 SoC and not a Qualcomm chipset. The Exynos chipset was used on the older Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 flagships back in 2017. The Google Pixel 4a is packed with 4GB RAM and runs on Android 10 operating system. It managed to score 385 points in single-core and 1625 in the multi-core test in the Geekbench 5. There’s a good chance the Geekbench listing could be fake, because it is unlikely that the Google Pixel 4a would run on a dated Exynos 8895.
A recent report suggested that Google Pixel 4a will have an internal codename of Sunfish and will be powered by the Snapdragon 730 SoC, while the Pixel 4a XL would ship with the Snapdragon 765G SoC and have 5G connectivity. In comparison, the Google Pixel 3a came with the Snapdragon 670 chipset. The leaked renders revealed the Pixel 4a will have a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor for security. The volume rocker and power button on the right side, and the USB Type-C port and speaker grills are placed on the bottom. Google Pixel 4a also has the 3.5mm audio jack up top.
While it isn’t confirmed, the Google Pixel 4a could sport a 5.7 or 5.8-inch flat display, and there’s an earpiece above the screen. It isn’t expected to include Project Soli Motion Sensor for gesture control, which means there’s a good chance the affordable Pixel phone will launch soon. The handset is likely to run on Android 10 and measure 144.2 x 69.5 x 8.2mm in size (9mm including the rear camera bump). The phones are expected to launch at the I/O 2020 developers show in May when Android 11 is introduced.
