Goodbye to the big frames
The Pixel 3a may have been an interesting mobile for those looking for a good camera without spending too much money, but the truth is that its design was anything but attractive. However, this new model, without having the best design, is much more current.
First, top frame has been removed. The front camera is now placed in a small hole in the upper left corner. The side frames have also been reduced and the size of the bottom frame adjusted.
The back is still polycarbonate and it has in its central part the fingerprint reader. The design of the camera frame has also changed, now being a small square that houses the camera and flash.
Better technical set and fast charge
At a technical level we have many changes from the previous model. The OLED screen grows until 5.81 inch, also slightly increasing the resolution (1,080 x 2,340 pixels). It is an HDR compatible screen and has a 19.5: 9 aspect ratio.
Under the hood of the Google Pixel 4a we find a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 processor, accompanied by 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage. The battery is 3,140 mAh and has 18W fast charge.
Where we do not have too many changes in the photographic section. The Pixel 4a has a single 12.2 MP sensor with f / 1.7 aperture and Dual Pixel technology. The only difference we found from the Pixel 3a is that the camera is now slightly brighter.
There are also no changes to the front camera, with a 8 MP sensor with f / 2.0 aperture, 1.12 μm pixels and 84º field of view.
Price and availability
The Google Pixel 4a will go on sale in the coming weeks, but it can already be booked on the manufacturer’s official website. Its price is 390 euros and is currently only available in black.
