Google canceled a next-gen Pixel phone, but photos just leaked anyway

Cancelled Google Pixel 4a XL

It's just a bigger Pixel 4a, with the exception of dual cameras on the back.

A YouTube channel by the name of Pigtou published a 3D render of the Pixel 4a XL based on some guesswork and design choices of the Pixel 4a.

The provisions for the two lenses are also part of a box-shaped camera bump, similar to the Pixel 4 series - and the same as what is expected from the Pixel 4a. And since the device is as thick as the Pixel 3a XL, it is said to have enough room for the 3.5mm headphone jack on top. Too bad it got canceled, the public receiving only the Pixel 4a. The canceled Google Pixel 4a XL would have had some slim measurements, 154.3 x 73.9 x 8.2mm. 5G connectivity is also expected, which should make the Pixel 4a one of the few affordable phones - the Pixel 4a is expected to cost $349 - with 5G capabilities. The back panel of the Pixel 4a XL is probably made of plastic and comes in white. While we've heard about the upcoming Pixel 4A's features - as well as the features it's reportedly ditching, like Active Edge, leaks have been less prevalent when it comes to the Pixel 4a XL. The front-facing punch-hole selfie snapper (found the upper left corner of the screen) will most likely carry an 8MP sensor. However, the lack of consistent proof confirmed the fact that this year, the search giant won't be launching a Pixel 4a XL.

The source even provided a comparison between the Pixel 4a XL and Pixel 4a, as you can see in the picture provided below. The phone was supposed to arrive in May, but it seems like that launch has been moved to mid-July.

The Pixel 4a is shaping up to be a rather decent budget to mid-range phone.

Google would probably be waiting for better times to avoid that the problems related to Coronavirus can overshadow the launch of a device long awaited by fans around the world. So far, the Pixel 4a looks set to have a 12.2MP camera much like its predecessor. Google upset some customers with the cancelation of the Pixel 4a XL, and some shareholders are rumored to not be happy about this.
