The Pixel 4a is the iPhone SE you're looking for

Last-minute Google Pixel 4a leak leaves little to reveal at today’s launch

The Google Pixel 4a is now official and it's priced at $349, making it $50 cheaper than when the Pixel 3a launched previous year. Leaks have shown up just this weekend that point to the outlying possibility of not just one phone being announced in the Pixel 4a today, but perhaps a second or third device as well.

Google is also giving customers a sneak peek at the Pixel 4A 5G and the Pixel 5, though they haven't provided any detailed information on either phone's hardware. Officially arriving in September, Pixel 4a will precede Google's first 5G-enabled Pixel phones - the 5G version of the 4a and the powerful Pixel 5, both coming to Australia in spring. Presently, you can pre-order this device from Amazon, Google Store, and Best Buy. The loss of a proper XL model might be a bummer for some - we were big fans of the 3a XL's insane battery life - but Google's sales data convinced it that smartphone shoppers on a budget "prefer the smaller size". "The Pixel 4a camera has HDR+, Night Sight and more", said Google on its website. Pixel 4a (5G) and Pixel 5Google will introduce this Fall the Pixel 4a (5G), starting at $499, and Pixel 5, both with 5G to make streaming videos, downloading content and playing games on Stadia or other platforms faster and smoother than ever. We do have the same great 12-megapixel camera experience, as well as the same RAM and storage capacity as the Pixel 3a. Do you think Pixel 4A is better than the iPhone SE?

The new Galaxy phone is expected to cost around US$1,000. And because this is a Pixel, it's guaranteed to get at least 3 years of Android OS and security updates. The other two are Pixel 4a 5g and the premium Pixel 5. The Crystal Palace, for $39.99, is a transparent case that can protect the new Google Pixel 4A from a drop of 13 feet.


Google has unveiled the Pixel 4a which will cost US$349 (A$599), which is US$50 cheaper than the Apple iPhone SE, which has boosted Apple's revenue as the coronavirus pandemic hits the hip pocket. We remain deeply committed to our current Pixel phones and look forward to bringing future Pixel devices to these countries. Furthermore, there are reports that this smartphone will not use a flagship processor.

So between the new Pixel 4a, the upcoming Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5, and Google's new partnership with ADT, it seems Google is already laying the groundwork for a jam-packed gadget season starting now and going into the holidays.
