Last year, Google released their first ever mid-range phone, Pixel 3a. It packed impressive specs and an incredible camera. It made the competitors step their game up on the mid range phones. Now, Google has released their next mid range phone the Pixel 4a, to tie in with their Pixel 4 & 4 XL range
Here are the specs on the Google Pixel 4a:
* Display: 5.81″ OLED 1080×2340 display with 60Hz refresh rate
* Processor: Snapdragon 730
* RAM: 6GB
* Storage: 128GB
* Rear Camera: 12.2 MP
* Front Camera: 8 MP
* Battery: 3140mAh with 18w fast charging
* LTE: 4G
* Colours: Just available in Black
With the Australian release of the phone, they are throwing some earbuds in the box. We are only 1 of 2 countries getting them in the box (France being the other). For the most part we’re seeing upgrades compared to last year’s entry-level Pixel 3a. The processor and batteries are bigger, there’s more RAM and double the storage capacity. Unfortunately, just like last year, there is no water resistance for the Pixel 4a.
It’s also true that there will be no XL version this year. This means there’s just one price point — $599. That’s $50 less than the original RRP of the Pixel 3a. This is insane and we’re here for it. It’s also worth noting that once the Pixel 4a 5G variant comes out it will cost $799. Stay tuned for that one.
And if you’re someone who prefers to buy on a plan, the Pixel 4a will also be available on a plan through Vodafone.
Pixel 4a is now available for pre-order in Australia. You can get it from the Google Store, JB Hi Fi, Vodafone and Harvey Norman. It will go on sale from the same places, as well as Officeworks, on September 10.
Everywhere else won’t be stocking the Google Pixel 4a until mid-October.
Let us know what you think, will you get this reasonably priced mid range phone?
