Google Pixel 4a has been leaked several times last week that revealed few standout features and the design of the smartphone. And now, there’s finally some news on the launch date of the device as well.
While Google is yet to announce anything officially, latest reports out of Germany claim the phone’s launch could be closer than expected. It has been suggested that the next mid-range Pixel smartphone could be made available by the company on May 22.
As per the new report, Pixel 4a will reportedly be available for purchase starting May 22 via Vodafone Germany. While the report does not clarify if the launch will be held on the same day, or before, the news about the sale date does give a decent idea about the phone’s release.
As for the rumoured specifications, the phone is expected to be powered by mid-range Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 chipset paired with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. The phone is likely to feature a 5.81-inch OLED display with an FHD+ resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels and a refresh rate of 60Hz. The device is also expected to load a 3,080mAh battery with support for 18W USB Type-C fast charging. However, the phone will miss out on wireless charging.
As for design, from the leaked videos and images, we can tell that the Pixel 4a could come with curved edges with thin bezels on it. There is a punch-hole design on the display with a single front-facing camera. The back has a square-ish camera bump with a single camera and an LED flash, positioned diagonally inside the module. At the center of the smartphone is a circular fingerprint sensor, leading us to believe that Google might skip face unlock on the Pixel 4a.
