Google Pixel 4a details
On August 3, Google unveiled its new Pixel 4a device. Although the giant company hasn’t started selling the Pixel smartphone, pre-order is already in progress. As far as the official release date of the device is concerned, Google confirmed that it won’t sell until August 20.
As usual, the Google Pixel 4a comes as a downgrade version of last year’s flagship device, Pixel 4. The new device is selling at a price, as low as $350. That’s $50, less than half the price of Pixel 4. Talking of its design, it has a 5.8-inch screen and comes with a new punch-hole display. Apart from that, it comes powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G processor. That’s inferior when you compare it to that of the Snapdragon 855 in the Pixel 4. In addition, the Google Pixel 4a comes with a storage capacity of 128GB and 6GB of RAM.
