In 2020 addition to Google’s Pixel 4a family of phones is the highly anticipated Pixel 4a. It’s a scaled-down version of the Pixel 4.
Finish: black only
This new inexpensive phone only comes in one size – it’s a compact device with a 5.8-inch screen. That keeps the overall size low, making it one of the smallest devices we’ve seen released recently:
It has a structure that adapts to your positioning, opting for a polycarbonate unibody design, that back shell wraps around the sides for a perfect finish until it meets the flat screen in the front.
Google says it will only be available in Just Black, with a contrasting white power button, which bears the latest Pixel design signature.
The bezels’ design pushed back and the adoption of a perforated front camera for a contemporary design. Simultaneously, the upper speaker sits on that narrow edge that accompanies the speaker at the phone base.
There is a 3.5mm headphone jack for those who want that legacy connection. Still, the two speakers also offer a powerful stereo output.
Personal. Perfect for delivering the soundtrack to your YouTube videos or casual games and loud enough to use. It sounds good, while many phones in this category overlook their speaker setup.
The camera bump on the rear procedures a square, poking fun at the style that is becoming increasingly popular on smartphones.
It lone houses a single lens and the flash, so maybe it’s a bit of a stretch because it’s mostly just space.
The Pixel 4a’s screen is small by modern standards, with many devices exceeding 6 inches, even in this affordable price range.
That makes it one of the smallest phones we saw in 2020, and that will hold some appeal for those who want to avoid a massive phone.
Where the Pixel 4a looms as a mid-range phone is in the hardware department. It is sitting on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G platform.
This 700-series hardware slides underneath the flagship 800-series hardware you’ll find on top phones, but it’s a step up from the 600-series hardware on the Pixel 3a.
Here has been a lot of enthusiasm about phones installed on Snapdragon 700 series hardware in 2020.
Due to new access to the family, the Snapdragon 765. That Hardware carries 5G connectivity, which this device loses, although a Pixel 4a 5G will be released later. Instead, the Snapdragon 730G sits a bit lower than the 765 in power and performance.
Still, there are only minor differences: it is an older generation, has a somewhat lower clock speed on one essential, and is 8nm instead of 7 nm.
Main: 12.2-megapixel f / 1.7 aperture, 1.4 µm pixel size, Optical Stabilization
Selfie: Is 8 megapixels f / 2.0, 1.12 µm
