Google's long-awaited Pixel 4a is here, and it brings a lot to the table for just $350. The phone has subtle design changes from the Pixel 3a series, and there's a single model this year with a 5.8-inch AMOLED screen.
The Pixel 4a is available in a single variant with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of UFS 2.1 storage, and there is a single 12.2MP camera with OIS at the back. That camera is on par with the full-fledged Pixel 4, making the Pixel 4a the best budget phone if you're interested in taking photos. Google is launching the Pixel 4a in 13 markets around the world, and here's what you need to know about availability.
