The Pixel 4a has been leaking pretty frequently lately, and now most of us are wondering when we'll actually get to use the thing for ourselves. If a new report is to be believed, we could be waiting a bit longer.
Google may be aiming to launch the Pixel 4a on July 13. A report from Front Page Tech's Jon Prosser says that the Pixel 4a was originally set to launch in May but was pushed to June, and now its release has been pushed back again to mid-July.
It's said that the Pixel 4a is "ready to ship" but that Google's decision to hold off on the launch is "mostly based on market analysis."
Today's report includes a few other Pixel 4a tidbits. The phone will purportedly be offered in Just Black and Barely Blue color options and will be 4G-only. There's also no indication of a Pixel 4a XL model if you were still holding out hope for one.
Lots of folks expected the Pixel 4a to launch in mid-May because that'd be one year after the launch of the Pixel 3a and it would line up with the dates that Google I/O. Recent leaks from a German carrier showed that the Pixel 4a was first set to launch in late May and then early June, seemingly lining up with today's report, and now it sounds like we may have to wait even longer.
As a refresher, the Pixel 4a will reportedly include a 5.81-inch 2340x1080 OLED display with a single 12.2MP rear camera with OIS and EIS plus an 8MP selfie camera that lives in a hole-punch in the upper-left corner of the display. It's also expected that the Pixel 4a will have a Snapdragon 730 processor plus 6GB of RAM, a rear fingerprint reader, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a 3080mAh battery. Pricing is rumored to be $349 for a 128GB model.
Was originally May, then got pushed to June, now pushed again.
“Just Black” & “Barely Blue”
Current plan for announcement:
BTW - just 4G.
(Sorry to kill the 5G rumors)
Seems like they’re ready to ship. The decision is mostly based on market analysis.
