For the I / O developer conference in May 2020, the rumors announced the appearance of Pixel 4a, the new mid-range phone from Google. However, the event is canceled and the mobile has been the object of one of the most curious leaks we remember.
In the first instance, it was the employees of a technical service located in Havana, Cuba, called Tecno Fanticos, who revealed some images.
Subsequently, it was the YouTube channel TecnoLike Plus, which broadcasts from the same capital of the Caribbean island that amplified the background.
In a video of just under seven minutes, it is detailed that the mobile has a plastic coverage very similar to metal, surely a decision adopted by the firm based in Mountain View to save some good dollars.
Apparently, Google also abandoned the dual-tone aspect in Pixel 4, just as in the past it did with Pixel 4. One difference that stands out is that the new mobile exhibits a light side key in a light tone, presumably White.
Among other elements, it also features a physical fingerprint sensor and a square camera module with a single 12-megapixel lens sensor and a single flash, as well as video recording in 4K.
The existence of the TOF (flight time) sensor, which offers a depth reading system based on infrared light beams, could not be determined.
The terminal has a USB-C port and a standard 3.5 mm headphone jack in the lower area, something that is currently appreciated in (products of) the economic range, added TecnoLike Plus.
Its wide screen is 5.81 inches, it has very thin edges and a resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels and a pixel density of 443. That is, shows a cut in the upper left corner for the camera of selfies, 8.0 megapixels and video stabilization.
The variant is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 chip, an Adreno 618 GPU, 6 GB of RAM, 64 GB of internal storage (not expandable goes micro-SD) and a 3080 mAh battery. Its refresh rate is 60 Hz, typical of its price range.
A previous leak hints at several editions of the Pixel 4a, one of which admit 5G in certain regions, Digital Trends underlined.
Logically, the phone has Android 10, since Android 11 will not be launched until the end of the 2020 season.
The TecnoLike Plus video also explained that the phone is compatible with two SIM cards, but does not clarify if there is a second physical slot.
Since the security patch was dated April 5, the channel speculates that this could be the launch date, however it responds to a fairly common deadline for Android security updates.
The Google Pixel 4a was expected to be officially launched at the annual Google Developer Conference. Unfortunately, the company had to cancel due to concerns about coronavirus () According to the reports, it is being manufactured in Vietnam, so it is unlikely that the epidemic has affected production, Digital Trends auction.
