Google May Launch A Mid-Range Pixel With 5G Support In 2020

Google Pixel 4a

Google could be aiming to release an affordable 5G option with its mid-tier "a" line of handsets, rather than kicking off its 5G ready phones with the Pixel 5, set to launch later this year, but with scant information on the upcoming devices, it's all just speculation for now.

After the Pixel 3a was launched early a year ago, we were only looking forward to the Pixel 4a in 2020 right now (and hoping it would be launched in India as well). Lastly, Bramble is also seen with Snapdragon 765 SoC.

Which code name is the Pixel 4a?

XDA Developers has been successful in the past in relying on the information hidden within Google's Android Open Source Project (AOSP) to predict future developments.

A year back, Google released Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL, which were their budget-oriented devices. The fact that there's three of them suggests that there's a real product here somewhere.


Moreover, the price cut will be automatically applied on your way out to the checkout process. The code-names are sunfish, redfin, and bramble.

Meanwhile, the Redfin device will feature a Snapdragon 765 SoC.

If it really has Snapdragon 765, a chipset with an integrated 5G modem, we might be looking at a phone aiming for an upper-midrange price tag and trying to compete with devices such as Oppo Reno3 Pro, Galaxy S10 Lite and Galaxy Note10 Lite. While most people know Qualcomm processors by their shorter, smarter names, Google and Android developers usually refer to their model number.

There are two builds for Sunfish in development, one based on Android 10 and another based on Android 11. Shared by tipster SlashLeaks, the photos show a square shaped camera bump housing a single camera. However, looks like Google has plans for more than just that one mid-ranger Pixel phone. While the Pixel 3a has experienced awesome sales records across the globe, the big display variant Pixel 3a XL is still struggling in the market.
