The Pixel 4a refuses to stay hidden just as firmly as Google refuses to just announce the phone and get it over with. The latest leak comes in the form of cases showing off the phones design from every angle.
This will be Googles first phone with a punch hole selfie camera, which allowed the company to slim down the top bezel compared to the Pixel 4. The design of the rear camera hump is unchanged, even though it houses only a single 12MP module and its LED flash (the premium Pixel 4 has two cams on the square).
The back is also home to the fingerprint reader as the Pixel a phones are the budget-oriented offering from the search giant (not that the expected price of $400 is exactly cheap).
Youll be glad to hear that the 3.5mm headphone jack is alive and well on the top side of the phone. The USB-C port is on the bottom, flanked by two grilles one of them might be decorative or Google may have switched to bottom-firing speakers.
The 3a model used the earpiece as the other half of the stereo speaker setup, but it had a thicker notch to work with. Can a big enough speaker fit on the 4a?
Pixel 4a case renders
That remains to be seen when Google finally lifts the cover and shows us the Pixel 4a for real. We don’t know when that might be, since Google I/O was cancelled. For now, we have leaks to tell us about details like the chipset (S730), battery and others more details here.
By the way, the renders of the transparent case show a turquoise color, which shows up quite rarely. Previous leaks are usually Just Black and occasionally Clearly White. It is quite close to this color from early January.
