Google Pixel 4a rumored to go on sale in July 13th

Google launches its flagship phones late in the year, and typically follows up with a cheaper model in about six months - last year it was the Pixel 3a and the Pixel 3a XL. The decision to push back the launch of the phone is apparently due to demand rather than production issues, as Prosser says the Pixel 4a is "ready to ship".

According to Prosser, the Pixel 4a will be available in two colors - "Just Black" and "Barely Blue". But Prosser says there's now no evidence of a larger, Pixel 4a XL model.

Amy Abernethy, the principal deputy commissioner at the Food and Drug Administration, told STAT this earlier this week. According to the CNN report , approximately 1 in 11 patients in the control group died in the hospital.

According to Prosser, Google's current plan is to announce the Pixel 4a on July 13th. With the Google Pixel 5 processor, it seems to be disappointing already.

For this deal - which Best Buy is also offering (Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL) when you choose the "Activate Later" option - you get most of the features found on the Pixel 3/3 XL, including the same excellent cameras, attractive design, bright screen and Google's native Android experience with timely updates. The Snapdragon 730, which powers the Pixel 4a, has nearly the same CPU and GPU (though at lower clock speeds) and an older modem compared to Snapdragon 765. It is said to offer a full HD+ OLED display of 2340x1080 pixel resolution. There is a single 12MP shooter at the back, which may not sound impressive but it is backed by Google's impressive image processing magic, which makes all the difference. Previous reports set the price at $ 399, but lately, we've seen evidence that Google could undermine the iPhone SE by setting the Pixel 4a's price at $ 349. The rumours suggest that Pixel 4a might even be dipping below the iPhone SE price. A new leak, however, has further put the fate of Google's next flagship phone in doubt.
