After a long wait, she arrived. Google announced the Pixel fourth Monday (3), as expected. The successor to the Google Pixel 3a has intermediate specs, but promises good experience with the rear camera. In addition, the device will have a version compatible with 5G still in 2020.
As the rumors said, the basic hardware of Google Pixel 4a is formed by a Snapdragon 730G chip accompanied by 6 GB of RAM. The storage is 128 GB, however (rumors were 64 GB).
The screen is not among the largest on the market, but it is far from being a weakness of the model: the panel has 5.8 inches, OLED technology, full HD + resolution, HDR and Gorilla Glass 3 protection.
Note that the use of the front space has improved considerably compared to the Pixel 3a. Now, the screen occupies almost the entire front, which is why the selfie camera was placed in a “hole” on the left.
Since we talk about it, know that the front camera has 8 megapixels and 84 degrees field of view. But the rear camera shines when it comes to photos. At least that’s what Google suggests. It consists of a 12.2 megapixel sensor and a lens with an aperture of f / 1.7, in addition to optical stabilization systems (OIS) and image electronics (EIS).
There is only one camera at the rear, but features like double exposure control, night mode (night vision) , astrophotography and HDR + should compensate for this, let’s say, limitation.
Among the other attributes of the Pixel 4a are 3,140 mAh battery with quick recharge, fingerprint reader on the rear, Titan M security chip , headphone connector and, of course, Android 10.
In the United States, the Pixel 4a has a sale price of US $349.
Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5
The “normal” Pixel 4a will be released this August, but Google promises to release the Pixel 4a 5G in the coming months. The price of this model should be approximately $ 500, however. The higher cost is likely to reflect, in addition to 5G, a larger screen and a more capable battery, although Google has not confirmed these details.
On the other hand, Google has confirmed that the Pixel 5 is also on the way and will be announced in 2020. It is expected that the model will also be compatible with 5G and, of course, bring more advanced hardware than its predecessor.
