Google Pixel 4a: Codename “Sunfish” Appears to be Confirmed

Some weeks back, there were leaks about the Google Pixel devices bearing the names of fish and three were singled out -sunfish, redfin, and bramble. It was not clear then what the model numbers or names these would be. There appears to be at least one confirmation that the code “sunfish” refers to the Google Pixel 4a. This is the model due for release now as followed by Google over the years. The Google Pixel 4a XL may also get launched along with it. One of the other code names of the three mentioned maybe for the Google Pixel 4a XL.


Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 SoC Could be the Processor

Even when the code names were found in the AOSP, it was indicated that the phone with the code name “sunfish” will be fitted with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 SoC. The present confirmation on the model comes from XDA Developers that had made the previous revelations as well. The report says they are not in a position to share direct evidence of what they found for obvious reasons.

Google PIxel 4A

If this finding that the Google Pixel 4a will come fitted with the Snapdragon 730 SoC chipset is correct, then it can be confirmed that it will only be a 4G device and not 5G as rumored earlier. It is still possible the higher Pixel 4a XL may be a 5G device with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 SoC.

Other Rumored Specifications

Apart from the processor, some of the other specifications leaked separately by @OnLeaks include a display size of either 5.7nches or 5.8inches. The display is expected to sport a punch hole.

The 3.5mm jack for audio out and the USB-C type charging port will all be part of this new device form Google. Being a budget phone, a physical fingerprint scanner can be expected on the rear panel. There will be only one camera in the rear. The camera sizes and other details are not known yet.

Google’s move to launch the Google Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL were successful and there is no reason why its successors should no do well in the market too when launched.
