Google has had reasonable success with its Pixel range of smartphones, having doubled the sales of the devices in one year. Its move to launch the lower priced Google Pixel 3a and 3a XL proved to be an intelligent one and there is every reason to believe the company will be releasing the successors, the Google Pixel 4a and Pixel 4a XL. One can also assume that these budget devices will be out around the same time as last year, May 2020. Meanwhile, A leaked video and renders of the Google Pixel 4a have revealed few details on the phone’s form factor and design and can be shared here.
Thinner Bezels, Punch Hole on the Display
The first reaction you may feel on seeing the front display of the Google Pixel 4a from these renders is that the bezels are much thinner than the predecessors. The presence of the speaker grille in the middle and the lone punch hole on the top left corner will make you feel the Project Soli radar fitted on the Google Pixel 4 may be missing from this toned-down model. The expectation is that the display size of the Google Pixel 4a will be close to 5.7-inches and it will be a flat display. There is no information on the type of display or screen resolution.
As you move to the sides, you can notice that the left edge is clean while the right one has the power on/off button and the volume rocker. The power button is of a different color from the body. In these renders it is in orange color.
Only One Camera Seen with Flash on the Bump
The rear panel has the camera bump as it was seen on the Google Pixel 4. However, closer examination reveals just one camera and a flash accommodated within this square. This camera is predicted to be 12.2MP. Apart from this, the physical fingerprint scanner can be seen.
The top edge houses the 3.5mm jack as well as the USB C-Type port. The overall dimenstions of the phone are 144.2mm x 69.5mm x 8.2mm with 9mm being the highest thickness where the rear camera bump is located.
Among other rumors on the specifications of the phone, it is likely to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 or 765 SoC processor and will get 4 GB RAM support. The internal storage is likely to be 64 GB. There is also the expectation that the phone will have 5G capability but this cannot be confirmed.
