Pixel 4A is for Real – A Tempting Proposition

Google finally released the Pixel 4A phone upon us. The Pixel 4A will start at $349 and will ship August 20, 2020. The Pixel 4A 5G phone, however, will come in at $499 and will ship in the “fall”. There are rumors that the Pixel 4A 5G will have a larger screen to reconcile the $150 uptake in price.

Pixel 4A Budget Phone?

I don’t think of ‘budget’ when thinking of releases of Pixel phones. However, since the release of the Pixel 3A, we have been seeing Google trying to cater to the larger market share of mobile phone devices. We know that the Pixel line of phones is known for their unique photography.

Pixel 4A has better specs and features than most mid-range phones

Pixel 4A with 128 GB

What!? Now when we first talked about the Pixel 4A phone coming out, there were questions whether it was a phone one should buy. I mean, if it was an upgrade to the Pixel 2 or Pixel 3A, it should have an increase in storage space, right? Well, we found out from GSMArena that the Pixel 4A has 128GB. That’s impressive for a ‘budget’ or mid-range phone. The Pixel 4 came out with a base 64GB. Usually, that’s the $200 increase right there between phones, but we’re already talking about the Pixel 4A coming out at $349.

I think Gareth might just get a Pixel 4A phone on August 20.

Pixel 4A Camera is just as good as the Pixel 4

As you compare the specs (gsmarena) between the Pixel 4, Pixel 3A, and Pixel 4A, you’ll also notice that the Pixel 4A has the same camera for both the Pixel 4 and the Pixel 4A. The exceptions are that the Pixel 4A does not have a dual-LED flash, but whateves. Oh, and the Pixel 4A does not have the 16 MP, 2x optical zoom camera either, but if it’s anything better than my Pixel 3A XL or Pixel 2 camera, you already got me on value too. Pixel keeps giving you better photos of each revision of Pixel. Mid-range or not. You’re still going to be able to capture the stars in their astrophotography mode.

I love that they kept the 3.5mm headphone jack. Because, if you’re mid-range. You need to keep to the mid-range or less accessories! Good for you Google.

Pixel 4A Model G025J Battery, Sensors and Communication

Pixel 4A Battery Life 3140 mAh

This is one of the most improved things about the Pixel 4A compared to the flagship Pixel 4. Battery life. They were able to house a 3140 mAh battery in the Pixel 4A.

Pixel 4A Communications

The Pixel 4A comes out with the same as the Pixel 4 with regards to WiFi. We really should not see any changes in the Wi-Fi Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, dual-band, Wi-Fi Direct, DLNA, and hotspot capabilities. They have included the improved Bluetooth 5.1 capabilities though. That’s great. So, now. Where is the decrease in specs?

Pixel 4A Platform

I don’t know if Google was just toying with us, but they put a Snapdragon 730 chipset with a comparable CPU to the Pixel 4A. It’s like they couldn’t take the Pixel 4A Platform too low, especially if the technology is continually improving. Again, lower specs, but, I’m not sure if you’re going to see a huge difference in performance for a Pixel phone, especially if you’re jumping from a Pixel 3A or Pixel 4 phone.

Pixel 4A Phone Coming Out August 20 2020

The Pixel 4A is coming out August 20, 2020. Based on the specs and features, I can’t quite understand why this phone is a budget or mid-range phone. It’s not. It’s a pretty powerful device packed in the body of a Pixel 3A body. You’re going to get most of almost everything the Pixel has to offer with regards to the latest specs and features, with minimal trade-off. Or at least, noticeable tradeoffs. I’m curious know how this phone will look or perform with the 5G enhancement by the end of the year. However, if you’re in the market for a powerful Pixel phone, you’ll need to consider that you’re going to get one for an affordable $349 base price for a 128 GB, 3140 mAh battery life phone. It looks like they just set a new bar. I think they had too, in order to make up for lost time. I think the consumer just got the advantage here on the Pixel 4A.
