We all know that the Pixel lineups faced a lot of critism this year. MKBHD also rated Pixel 4 as the bust of the 2019 smartphone of the year. But Pixel 4a renders have emerged now and its all about the good news this time.
Pixel 4a renders details
The intel comes from Steve Hemmerstoffer’s @OnLeaks and through Indian retailer/blog 91mobiles. It indicates several design flairs that match up with the Pixel 4’s look, but also hints at compromises that keep the phone wallet-friendly, much like the 3a.
Pixel 4a will stay with a ‘matte’ unibody material, presumably plastic, a capacitive fingerprint sensor, and a single 12MP camera, though in a stove-like hump that’s said to house other sensors as well. Power and volume buttons stay stage left.
Other Pixel 4a spectulations
It maybe of a 5.7″ or 5.8″ screen as opposed to last year’s 5.6″. Bezels have shrunk down to the point where a thin earpiece remains perched at the very top. Google may opt to pull off a “punch-hole” selfie camera as Samsung has done for its flagship phones in 2019. This design choice, however, makes the implementation of Project Soli radars doubtful.
The Pixel 4a should be stocked with at least 4GB of RAM, but may probably go up to 6GB. Internal storage is expected to stubbornly stick at 64GB. We may see either a Snapdragon 730 or a 765 procesor, depending on how Google assesses the state of play for 5G. In addition to black and white, 91mobiles suggests purple and orange are at play for the wild card color
