While there is no word from Google on the Pixel 4a's launch, the phone has recently been certified by the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC).

There's a lot to be said for Google's Pixel lineup of phones, which offer a clean take on Android paired with some of the best hardware around, especially for the price. The smartphone which was supposed to launch in May and then in June may finally be unveiled in July.

The documents shared by FCC doesn't give us any key details about the Pixel 4a. We believe G025J will be the United States model number, and the others will be for different parts of the world.

Earlier this week, we had reported that French retailer Ordimedia has listed the handset on its website with a July 7 launch date. The FCC only gets its hands on phones when they're nearly ready for launch, hence our expectation that we'll see it soon. Lastly, the FCC listing reveals the list of wireless bands that the device will support.

Meanwhile, dozens of Centrelink contract staff who live in the state's six hot spot areas have been stood down. He said the authorities were hoping to test as many as 100,000 people over 10 days.

"The Pixel 4a will sport a 5.81" FullHD+ OLED screen with a punch-hole in the top-left corner for the 8MP selfie camera.

Often when a device passes through the FCC it's a sign that it is nearing time for release, not always but often. The device will come with Snapdragon 730 SoC and will support UFS 2.1 storage with at least two variants - 64GB and 128GB. The whole body is made of plastic and at the back, it has a rectangle-shaped camera bump and a fingerprint sensor.

Powering the mid-ranger will be a 3,080mAh battery which will charge at up 18W through a USB-C port. The report further claims that the Black variant of the device will not launch until October 22 while the Barely Blue option will no longer exist.
