Google Pixel 4A | The Affordable phone you were looking for..
Updated: Aug 8, 2020
First of all, you need to be aware that there are 3 variants of this phone but only one of them is launching in India i.e Pixel 4A. We don't have the other 2 5G variants of this phone coming this year around. It is expected to be around 25,000 - 40,000 in India.
So, we get a 5.8-inch screen on this device. It is a full HD+ screen in case you're wondering about the resolution and you do get an OLED panel on this device. As for display protection, we have corning gorilla glass 3 but the interesting bit here is that this device weighs 143 grams and that is quite light relative to what we see on other smartphones, now for comparison, the iPhone SE 2020 weighs 148 grams. This is lighter even than that and the screen is quite bigger.
On to the performance now, You get a snapdragon 730 g processor on the google pixel 4a. With this, you also get google's titan m security module. In case you're wondering about the ram and storage you get 6 GB of ram and 128 GB of storage on this device. Which is an improvement over the 4 GB ram 64 GB storage variants of the Google pixel 3a and the Google Pixel 3a xl.
Now let's talk about what you're really here for which is the cameras and in this case again now you get a single front camera and a single rear camera on the Google Pixel 4A. You might think hmm it's 2020 and we still get a single front and a single rear camera when other manufacturers are giving us quad rear cameras and dual selfie cameras. Well, don't be disappointed just by specifications we've seen that Google, especially with the pixel 3a, managed to outperform devices in a similar price range in terms of still photos and multiple other scenarios and that is because of computational photography algorithms which google uses so that is the speciality of this device. A couple of interesting things on the camera front are that you still don't get 4k 60fps video recording on this device with the rear camera you can do a maximum of 4k 30fps or 1080p 60fps and with the front camera, you're limited to 1080p 30 fps.
You get a 3140 mAh battery on this device which promises up to 13 hours wake time. Along with this you get an 18-watt charger in the box and yes there is a headphone jack as well on this device but unfortunately, Google does not ship a pair of headphones in the box in India.
Android version -
Software is another area where the Google Pixel series has usually done well and in this case, you get Android 10 on this device which is going to be very very close to stock android and apart from that you will get a guarantee of three years of security and software updates.
Google has said that the Pixel 4A will be coming to India this October.
