Google’s Pixel 4a Detailed in New Leaked Video

Posted on March 11, 2020 by Mehedi Hassan in Android, Hardware, Mobile with 6 Comments

Google is terrible at keeping secrets. Almost every single time we are expecting a new phone or other hardware from the company, we know essentially everything about that product before the official announcement.

And looks like the upcoming Pixel 4a’s launch will not be any different. Thanks to a Cuban YouTube channel, we are getting our first detailed look at Google’s upcoming Pixel device this week.

The 6-minute+ hands-on video gives us a very good look at the Pixel 4a, and it’s just what you’d expect. The main striking difference here is the new front design on the Pixel 4a, which is the first Pixel phone to feature a hole-punch display. The new front design certainly looks way better than the regular Pixel 4 handsets.

The back of the device is made of plastic and features a fingerprint scanner as well. The camera only features a single 12MP lens and a flash on the back, with an 8MP front-facing camera.

As for the display, there is a 5.81-inch display with a resolution of 1080×2340 pixels and a refresh rate of 60Hz. That means the Pixel 4a won’t have the same Smooth Display that we have seen on the regular Pixel devices.

Under the hood, the Pixel 4a is powered by a Snapdragon 730 processor, 6GB of RAM, and 64GB of internal storage. There’s also a 3,080mAh battery, support for dual-SIM, but no option for 5G.

    So same camera hardware as the 3a line? Weird. Not that the 3a camera is bad by any means, but some sort of upgrade would be welcome.

    Looks like it may have an analog headphone jack, like the 3a before it. So a flagship phone. :-)

    Solid value. I bought a Pixel 4XL for just above that price recently or I would be grabbing this.

    Google seem to be seeing the value of mid-ranger devices. Apple look like they have a SE successor coming. The middle price tier is becoming a battleground for the big guns in 2020. Both have tapped out the "luxury" $999 range.

    To be honest, I wouldn't expect a 120Hz display on a device in this price category at this time. I expect it will take a couple of years for it to filter down to this level, and it will be Oppo, Xiaomi, Huawei etc. that will premier it.

    Yikes. I really hope this is somehow fake. If not, the 4a is a 3a with a slower CPU and modem. But hey, it has more RAM, and it's less bezel-y. So, yay?
