Google never goes overboard with Pixel specs, and that's particularly true with the "a" series. The Pixel 4a, like its predecessor, is about giving you a great all-around experience for the money by being very selective about which specs and features are included.
Google has confirmed it will have two more Pixels to launch in 2020, and they'll both have 5G. The Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5 will come later to complement the standard Pixel 4a, and while we have a decent idea of what they'll be like through leaks, Google isn't spilling details.
On Google's Canadian Store, images of the upcoming Pixel 4a have appeared, mislabeled as a Nest Wifi. Google was expected to have launched the Pixel 4a by now, but delays have meant the phone remains in limbo.
There's no Pixel 4a Xl, and it turns out there isn't a 5 XL either. Google is said to be launching three smartphones this year, but this new lineup ditches the old strategy for one which brings 5G to the masses.
With delay after delay pushing back the Pixel 4a's launch into July and possibly August, it would make a lot of sense for Google to simply call it the Pixel 5a and launch it alongside the Pixel 5 in October.
The Google Pixel 4a has moved one step closer to launch as it has been certified by the FCC. Even though Google hasn't officially confirmed anything yet, the Pixel 4a is rumored to be announced on July 13.
Renders showing the design of Google's canceled Pixel 4a XL have surfaced online. The phone would have been significantly more compact than last year's Pixel 3a XL, despite featuring a marginally larger screen.
The Pixel 4a is apparently delayed another month, but the explanation is the best I've heard yet; it's economical, not technological. The phones are ready to go, but it makes sense to not launch a budget-minded phone into this economy.
A new leak by Jon Prosser gives us a better indication as to when the Pixel 4a will be available. The phone is slated to launch on July 13, and will be available in Just Black and Barely Blue color options.
