Google Pixel 4a surfaces on FCC certification site, to be launched soon

Google released its flagship Pixel 4 and Pixel 4Xl last year, but the audiences didn’t well receive these devices. People were disappointed by what Google had offered, and sales growth was down compared to the previous models. Though Google had shipped more smartphones last year than Oneplus in terms of numbers, this growth is solely because of the mid-range Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a Xl, which were a success. Google decided to bring in the Google Pixel 4a this year, but very few renders have surfaced online. It is expected Google will release only one version of the device and not the XL variant. Recently Google Pixel 4a was spotted on the US FCC certification, hinting at a launch in the future soon. If not for the lockdown, maybe Google would have released Google Pixel 4a in May, just as it released the Google Pixel 3a. Develops expected Google to launch the device alongside the Android 11 update announcement. If Google wants to maintain its timeline of starting its new range of smartphones in October, then their trimmed down variant should be released soon. Google Pixel Pixel 4a model will come without the Soli radar sensor chip integrated for Motion Sense gesture controls. This was a significant selling point for Google Pixel 4 and 4XL. People expect that the new device will feature the same camera module f its predecessors and produce some stunning photos. It will sport a Snapdragon 730 SoC with a fingerprint scanner at the back. Google has decided to cut costs by not including an in-display fingerprint sensor. The Pixel 4 series was not sold in India as the frequencies aren’t supported in India. But the Pixel 4a has a frequency range between 58GHz and 63.5GHz, which means Google can sell the product in the country. It was also spotted on Geekbench, having 6GB of RAM with Android 10. The renders suggest that the device will be priced at $349 though it will be a little costly because of the taxes in India.
