The Google Pixel 4a is not expected to arrive until mid-2020, and yet its design has already been revealed in said renders. The Pixel 3a was one of the more popular mid-range offerings of 2019, so the bar is high for its successor.
The Google Pixel 4a design is not exactly surprising
The Google Pixel 4a will have considerably thinner bezels than its predecessor, it seems. The device will include thin bezels, and a display camera hole in the top-left corner.
Its bottom bezel will be a hair thicker than the rest, and the phone will include a flat display. Those bezels will be thicker than they are on flagship-grade phones, though, not by much though.
All the physical buttons will sit on the right-hand side of the phone. The power / lock button will be colored yet again, while the volume up and down buttons will sit below it.
A 3.5mm headphone jack is a part of the package
Interestingly enough, this phone will include a 3.5mm headphone jack. That port will be placed at the very top of the phone. A Type-C USB port will sit on the bottom, along with the phone’s main speaker.
A single camera will be placed on the back of the phone, along with an LED flash. Those two sensors will be a part of the same camera module, and protrude on the back.
A regular, capacitive fingerprint scanner will sit on the back of the device, according to these renders. The phone will feature rounded corners, and the same goes for the phone’s display.
The source claims that the Pixel 4a’s display will measure 5.7 or 5.8 inches, so the Pixel 4a will be quite compact. That is not surprising considering that the Pixel 3a included a 5.6-inch panel. That display will almost certainly be an OLED panel, by the way.
The Pixel 4a will measure 144.2 x 69.5 x 8.2mm (9mm including a camera bump), says the source. That is only an estimate, of course.
The Google Pixel 4a will probably launch during Google I/O 2020. In other words, it will arrive in May next year, at least it’s expected to.
The phone will probably be fueled by the Snapdragon 765 or Snapdragon 765G processor, depending on whether Google includes 5G into the phone or not. A 12.2-megapixel camera is expected to be included on the back, while Android 10 will come pre-installed.
