Google has stepped into the age of new technology with a pixel flagship series years ago. Maybe that’s why they are in the list of the competition with reputed brands like Apple, Samsung & OnePlus. Since then, Google has launched different variants of Pixel Smartphones throughout the world.
On 30th September 2020, Google released two new Smartphones Pixel 4a 5G & Pixel 5 which runs on Android 10 OS, which is now available for customers. The Pixel 4a 5G is comparatively cheaper and priced at around Rs. 37,000 and The Pixel 5 priced at around Rs. 51,000 approximately.
These phones are available all over the world; signs of the above phones launching in India are dim. This may be true because we don’t have 5G technology yet. That doesn’t mean the Pixel phone is not coming to India, but hoping it will be made available after December 2020. As an alternative to this, Google launched Pixel 4a which was announced a few months back in the global market.
Company officials said that Pixel 4a was announced on 03 August 2020 and finally launched in India on 17 October 2020 and will be sold exclusively on Flipkart. Flipkart also created an offer page including specifications & other details, but yet the company doesn’t disclose the price for Pixel 4a. Also, voucherarena started providing offers and coupon codes for it (Flipkart).
As of 17th October 2020, Google Pixel 4a is priced at Rs 30,000 in India and available in black color option only.

OS & Processor
Pixel works on Android 10 and will be upgradable to Android 11. In terms of power, the Pixel 4a is loaded with Qualcomm SDM730/730G Snapdragon processor with the Adreno 618 GPU. Google Pixel 4a incorporates a fingerprint scanner on the back.
Battery & Memory
Both these are the valuable features among any Smartphone after the OS & the processor. The phone is packed with a Li-Po 3140 mAh non-removable battery which can last up to 76 hours as per usage; with 18W fast USB charging support. 128GB of internal storage and 6GB RAM makes sure that the phone doesn’t lag or hand in between using memory-intensive apps or games. There is no memory card slot given, so memory storage can’t be expanded above 128GB.
Google Pixel 4a has one only 12.2MP rear camera with an LED flash and an 8MP front camera for selfie. Only the megapixels size is small but other features like HDR+ with dual exposure controls, Top shot, Night shot, Portrait mode, & Video stabilization make the camera quality better.
The phone’s primary security is reserved by the inbuilt fingerprint (rear-mounted) sensor along with the other features. Connectivity options are given such as 3G, 4G, GPS, Wi-Fi, and NFC Bluetooth capabilities.
