After many postponements, the Pixel 4a could finally be released next week. The phone should be presented at an online event.
Like the vast majority of players in the smartphone market, Google is not immune to the consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic. Also, the American firm has repeatedly postponed the launch of the Pixel 4a. Despite a few months of delay, the latter should still see the light of day. And if we are to believe the formidable Jon Prosser, we are only a few days away from its formalization.
Indeed, the serial leaker hit hard again by revealing on Twitter the release date of the mid-range smartphone. According to him, the Pixel 4a should be presented on August 3, the first Monday of next month.
It’s also worth noting that this date is just two days ahead of Samsung’s Unpacked conference.
The Pixel 4a becomes clearer
The Pixel 3a hit the market in May 2019. The Pixel 4a should also have been unveiled last May. But due to the current context, Google has not been able to stick to its usual schedule.
Granted, the fact that the phone was delayed for two months is disappointing, but things could have been even worse.
Some information leaked on the web did indeed indicate a launch in October with the Pixel 5.
With such an approach, the Pixel 4a would have been cannibalized as the Pixel 5 will certainly offer a more alluring setup. It should be noted in passing that this next generation of Google smartphones is expected with at least one Snapdragon 765G SoC.
An exclusively online presentation for the Pixel 4a
As with many smartphones lately, the direct successor to the Pixel 3a is expected to be announced exclusively online. This isn’t the first time we’ve heard of its imminent release.
For some time now, the clues suggesting such a possibility have multiplied. This is particularly the case with the recent certification of the device with the FCC. The Pixel 4a has also been seen on certain French sites, in particular, because of a possible link with the StopCovid app.
