Google's Pixels never go overboard on specs, and that's particularly true with the "a" series phones. The Pixel 4a, like its predecessor, is about giving you a great all-around experience by being very selective about which specs and features are included. The 4a thankfully provides a healthy amount of memory and storage, with a nice-looking display and a slightly larger battery than the 3a. The cameras haven't appreciably changed, which isn't much of a surprise, but we also still have a 3.5 mm headphone jack. Here's the complete spec sheet.
