Google Pixel 4a officially launches, 5.8-inch OLED display and Snapdragon 730

After a bit of a delay, the Google Pixel 4a has officially arrived. Although it doesn’t have an XL version, the Pixel 4a packs decent specifications like a 5.8-inch OLED display and a Snapdragon 730 for a midrange device.

The Google Pixel 4a has a 5.8-inch OLED 2340 x 1080 display with 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass and support for HDR10+. At the top left is a punch-hole for its 8MP f/2.9 front-facing camera. Meanwhile, Google keeps it simple by only including a single 12MP f/1.7 camera at the back. Though its main camera is alone, it does sport features such as DualPixel Phase Detection, LaserAF, and Pixel Visual Core.

Inside the black chassis is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 chip with 6GB of RAM. Of course, the handset runs on Android 10 and gets its juice from a 3,140mAh battery with support for 18W Fast Charging. Google also includes a 3.5mm audio jack for those who prefer wired headphones or earphones.
