A last-minute leak has disrupted all of Google’s plans. Yesterday, countless new ones were leaking characteristics of the Google Pixel 4a that just now have just become official after being the mobile presented in the company store. As expected, the mobile arrives in stores as a complete mid-range that will have to face other mobiles that, for the same price, offer 5G connectivity.
This year Google has had to delay the presentation of its new mid-range mobile phone so much that it has not been presented with the Google Pixel 5, which should be presented next month or in October, at the latest. As the leaks in the Network advanced in the last 48 hours, we are on a mobile that inherits the design of the Pixel 4 but with interesting changes, such as the return of the physical fingerprint reader, which returns to the back cover of the phone.
Features of the Google Pixel 4a
As related by data sheet of the mid-range of Google, this new phone is starring a 5.81-inch OLED screen Full-HD + (2340 x 1080 px) with a density of 443 dpi and with a hole in the upper left corner that accommodates a front camera. However, its screen frames, protected by Gorilla Glass 3, are somewhat larger than what we are used to seeing in recent months. This is a 19.5: 9 aspect ratio display, HDR support, and a 100.00: 1 contrast ratio. In addition, the brand debuts some “Funny” wallpapers created especially to hide the hole.
Inside we find a Snapdragon 730G processor It has 8 cores capable of reaching speeds of 2.2 GHz. It is accompanied by a Titan M security module as well as a binomial of 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. Obviously this chip does not have a 5G modem like the Snapdragon 765G from its competitors.
At the camera level we find, although it may seem something else, with a single rear sensor, inherited directly from the Google Pixel 4. It is a 12.2 MP lens with f / 1.7 aperture and Dual Pixel technology that has AI functions and the possibility of recording 4K video at 30 fps or up to 960 fps if we lower the capture resolution. This sensor has electronic and optical image stabilization and a viewing angle of 77º. It has the astronomical photo mode of its older brothers, as well as night vision mode, portrait mode and High Resolution Zoom.
In front, the leading role is given to an 8 MP lens housed in the aforementioned hole in the screen that debuts the design of this Google Pixel 4a. We are talking about a lens with a 1.12 micron pixel size, with f / 2.4 aperture and an 84º field of view that is capable of recording 1080p videos.
It works with a 3140 mAh battery which, according to the manufacturer, lasts up to 24 hours. It adapts to how you use your favorite applications and reduces the consumption of those that you hardly use. Its fast charge is 18W, so we can recharge it in just over two hours.
With dimensions of 144 x 69.4 x 8.2 mm and a weight of 143 grams, the mobile phone runs on Android 10, has a USB Type-C, maintains the headphone jack and boasts Bluetooth 5.1 and NFC. As for networks, it supports Wi-Fi 802.11 a / b / g / n / ac MIMO 2 × 2 (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz) and LTE 4G Cat.15 (800 Mbps) in downlink and LTE Cat .13 (150 Mbps) upstream.
With Google Assistant integrated into the system, the phone has stereo speakers to offer better sound.

Without knowing very well why, the smartphone goes on sale in Spain at a higher price than in other European regions such as France or Germany, where the Google Pixel 4a It can be purchased for 349 euros.
This year Google It will be more difficult than ever to place your phone because manufacturers such as Motorola, Realme or Xiaomi have already presented models with very similar characteristics but at a similar or lower price and adding 5G connectivity the whole. Of course, none of them has the quality of the camera sensor of Google’s new bet, its main weapon against the competition.
