Google canceled the Google I/O 2020 event scheduled to hold this May due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The new Google Pixel 4a was expected to be released at the event.
Since the cancelation of the event, rumors that the phone may arrive later this month or in June have been going around. Jon Prosser, a known Apple leak, recently shared a piece of new information claiming that the Pixel 4a will be unveiled in July. He tweeted that the launch event will take place on July 13.
Prosser speculates that Google’s decision to postpone the launch event of the Pixel 4a was based on the current market analysis. He further revealed that the smartphone is ready for shipping, but for reasons best known to Google, there has been a delay in its arrival.
According to Prosser, Google Pixel 4a will not support the 5G network. In the past, rumor revealed that the Pixel 4a would run on the Snapdragon 730 chipset, which is not a 5G-ready chipset; this entirely confirms Prosser’s deduction about the 5G connectivity of the phone.
The Google Pixel 4a will come with a 5.81-inch OLED display with support for Full HD+ resolution and a punch-hole dedicated for the selfie camera. It will come with the Android 10 OS pre-installed. Out of the box, the Pixel 4a will arrive with 6GB of RAM and will likely have 64GB and 128GB as the two storage options.
The phone will feature a 3,080mAh battery with support for 18W fast charging. The phone will come in black and shades of blue, so we are not hopeful of a white color variant of the Pixel 4a.
The phone will cost about $349 on arrival in the United States.
