In May this year, we saw Google entry into the mid-range segment with the launch of Google Pixel 3a & Pixel 3a XL and were loved by most for its amazing camera & stock android experience. Matter of fact is Pixel sales grew 2x over year in Q2 2019 as per various reports. So Google will be launching its next iteration of Pixel midrange i.e Pixel 4a & Pixel 4a XL in the first half of 2020 probably at the Google I/O. Now the CAD renders of Google Pixel 4a have been leaked by the leakstar @onleaks months before its official launch.
Pixel 4a CAD renders leaked
The Google Pixel 3a & Pixel 3a XL had the same design language as Pixel 3 & Pixel 3 XL but this isn’t the case with Pixel 4a. As you can see in the renders Pixel 4a has a punch-hole display with a single front-facing camera on the top left, thus making it the first phone from Google to have a punch-hole display. There’s no Soli-radar chip since the bezels are narrower than those found on the Pixel 4.
There’s considerable bottom chin with no front-firing stereo speakers since Google ditched them in Pixel 4 series, the earpiece is on top along with the 3.5mm audio jack which is pretty rare for the smartphones these days. The orange coloured power button & volume rockers are on the right, Type-C port along with the two speaker grills are at the bottom.The physical fingerprint scanner is on the back.
On the back, the squarish shape camera module design is identical to the flagship Pixel series however Pixel 4a houses a single camera with LED flash whereas the flagship Pixel has a dual-camera setup. As per @Onleaks, the display size of the handset is 5.7-5.8 inches which is a tad bigger than the Pixel 3a, it measures 144.2 x 69.5 x 8.2mm in size (9mm including the camera bump).
There’s still no information on the specifications of the budget Pixel series so we’ll have to wait for more clues. Stay tuned for that.
