Confirmed: Google Pixel 4a smartphone launching on Aug 3rd

Did Google just tell us that the Pixel 4a is coming on August 3?

The Pixel 4a looked similar to the leaks and renders that have been going around for months now.

You definitely should take this as a confirmation that the Pixel 4a is launching on August 3 and should block the date on your calendar. With that, the search giant also seems to be leaving a bunch of teasers on its official Twitter account as well as its official website. It also contained a link to a new Google Store landing page with an Easter Egg that reveals an August 3rd date.

The image at the landing page is most likely a teaser for the Pixel 4a and is, as Google likes to do, a puzzle. You need to match the colors to the official Google logo (blue, red, yellow, blue, green, red) to reveal the message.

The test is sort of latin although some of the words are not real latin vocabulary - words such as "videus chatum", "lowlightena capturum", "megapixelum" and "longlastingis batterum".


The good news is, the wait is finally over.

First spotted at AOSP by 9to5Google, on a code page discussing a VPN compatibility with Android Q, we have a comment from a Googler that lists out all of the Google Pixel devices back through the Pixel 2 and which versions of Android they launched with. If you remember, the Pixel 4 was not launched due to certain issues with the Soli radar. The company has also updated its header images on social media to confirm one of the new hardware aspects of the Pixel 4a - the punch-hole selfie camera.

Google Pixel 4a was supposed to be launched at the Google I/O event, but with repeated delays, the launch event was never materialized. The upcoming smartphone may arrive with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. A previous leak suggested that the Pixel 4a pricing would start at $399 (Rs 30,000 approx) but that was before Apple announced its affordable iPhone SE.
