Google has finally unwrapped the company’s latest mid-ranger smartphone – Pixel 4a – after delaying its launch for several months due to the ongoing pandemic.
Just like its Pixel 3a predecessor, the brand new Google Pixel 4a will continue to maintain a compact design, flaunting a 5.8-inches OLED display which boasts a full-HD+ screen resolution.
This time round, the Pixel 4a will be arriving with a hole-punch display accompanied by slim bezels along its two sides. Its front camera will be the same 8 megapixels selfie camera that is found on the higher-end Pixel 4.
On the flip-side, the Google Pixel 4a also comes with a squarish camera module which resembles what we’d seen among the current Pixel 4 and 4 XL smartphones.
For the Pixel 4a, the rear module will be housing a single 12.2 megapixels camera alongside a LED flash. On top of that, Google’s wizardry software also enables the device to shoot amazing portraits and night shots.
Under the hood, it will be driven by an octa-core Snapdragon 730 chipset which will be assisted by 6GB of RAM and 128GB non-expandable onboard storage.
Other than that, the Google Pixel 4a also features a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner as well as a 3.5mm headphone jack – a nice-to-have feature which is gradually fading away from recent smartphones.
To keep its light on, the device draws power from a 3,140mAh battery which carries support for up to 18W fast-charging. Although it currently runs on the Android 10 OS, but it will certainly updated to the latest Android 11 OS in the near future.
For those who’re interested, the Pixel 4a will be offered in a sole Just Black colorway, and will be priced at just S$499 in Singapore.
In terms of availability, the Google Pixel 4a will be up for online pre-orders from today on the Google Store, Challenger and Courts, and will be available online from 10 September, on the Google Store and retail partners Challenger, Courts and Amazon SG.
