The search engine giant is launching a new mid-range smartphone dubbed as Google Pixel 4a. The phone is also the watered-down variant of the Pixel 4 flagship smartphone which was launched last year.
It was suggested that the Pixel 4a may launch a couple of months ago, but it still has not been made official. Due to the market conditions in this COVID-19 pandemic, the launch of the Google Pixel 4a has been delayed a few times. Now coming to the main topic, the Google Pixel 4a has appeared on FCC.
The FCC filing for A4RG025J published today although the application was filed on 2nd April. It lists three models — G025J, G025M, and G025N — first being US-based model and the other two likely featuring cellular radios for other parts of the world.
Google will again utilize an e-label for a clean rear panel and thus, the back panel will only feature the “G” logo. The layout is identical to the current labels on existing Pixel phones. Apart from this, the FCC listing reveals nothing about the phone.
According to the previous reports, the Google Pixel 4a will come with a 5.81-inch OLED panel with a punch-hole design and Full HD+ screen resolution. It is powered by a Snapdragon 730 SoC, paired with 6GB of RAM, and 64/128 GB internal storage.
The Android 10 operating system will come pre-installed on the smartphone. The device is expected to launch with a 3,080mAh battery that will support 18W fast charging. The Pixel 4a may launch in the U.S market and it is priced at $349.
With this price point, Google may be trying to compete against the Apple iPhone SE 2020, which costs $399. The Google Pixel 4a is expected to be launched on 13th July, however, reports say that it could go on sale from October this year.
