Google’s Pixel 4A is now available to pre-order in the US on the Google store and Google Fi. It’s first 5G-enabled phones, Pixel 4A (5G) and Pixel 5 will be available from this Fall and costs $499 as the starting price.
Google on Monday introduced its new affordable smart phone Pixel 4A starting at $349 for the 6 GB + 128 GB model which will be available in the US. Pixel 4A will be pumped with 5G technology and will arrive in Indian markets by October 2020.
Google had said that it would reveal the price of its phone for Indians ahead of the launch. Google Pixel 4A will be on sale in Flipkart from October in India.
While Pixel 4A is now available in the US to pre-order in Google store and Google Fi, the company’s first 5G phones Pixel 4A (5G) and Pixel 5 will be available from this fall at a starting price of $499.
The company has also cut down the non-5G budget phone Pixel 4A to make it affordable for the budget-conscious customers.
The Pixel 4A will be available to customers on August 20 through Google store, bestbuy.com, Amazon, as well as US carriers including U S Cellular and Verizon.
The smart phone from Google features 5.8 inch OLED display and comes in only one color variant i.e., black. The phone has a matte finish and includes a pixel signature color pop power button in mint.
The camera of this Google phone is same as the one that is used in Pixel 3, 3A and Pixel 4. The camera is Sony’s 12 MP IMX363. The rear camera supports HDR+ which has dual exposure controls, Portrait mode, Top shot, Night Sight and fused video stabilization.
There is also an optical image stabilization feature and for selfies, an 8 MP camera sensor at the front is provided with f/2.0 lens.
Google Pixel 4A is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G and Titan M security module for device security. The smart phone has 6 GB RAM and 128 GB internal storage.
The phone is powered with 3140 mAH battery that supports 18W fast charging feature.
Google’s lower priced devices have been the top sellers but are far from being the major profit providers. Wheras, Google’s high priced devices have gained little traction when compared to those from industry leaders such as Samsung and Apple because of limited market and more competition.
The 5G models of the Google Pixel phone will be available in the United States, Canada, UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Japan, Australia and Taiwan.
Google’s Pixel phones are known for its high performance but however, this Pixel 4A lags a good battery backup as the 3140 mAH is pretty insufficient in this modern world.
