Google's official teasers confirm August 3 launch for the Pixel 4a

Yet Google has remained mute about the next-gen mid-range smartphone. The text then reads: "The Google Just What You've Been Waiting For Phone". Clicking the boxes changes their colors, and if you put the colors in the order they appear in the official Google logo (blue, red, yellow, blue, green, red), the boxes disappear and reveal the secret message and a huge date.

You definitely should take this as a confirmation that the Pixel 4a is launching on August 3 and should block the date on your calendar.

The Made For Google Twitter account has also been altered to reflect this "leak" - its account now links directly to the page described above, and its name has been changed to "The Google RTing, Meme Loving, Info Sharing Stream". The Pixel phones have been known for their cameras and the words like "lowlightena", "bokehus", and "megapixelum" in the teaser text suggest that it is not going to upset its fans this time around as well. Digging a bit deeper also suggests that the Pixel 4a will have high-quality cameras (which is expected) and a long-lasting battery (which is interesting for a Pixel phone).

Details for how to continue the fight for justice in Taylor's name are included in the piece, too. This marks the first time in its 20-year history that the cover has not featured Winfrey.

As for the Google Pixel 4a, it is expected to feature a 5.81-inch, 2340x1080 display with a punch hole on the top right corner.

A fingerprint sensor is also placed at the back of the smartphone, and there is a speaker grille at the top of the display.

Further, on the lorem ipsum landing page, there is a phone-shaped object which is covered in a checkerboard pattern that matches the Pixel 4a. A simple color puzzle on the page reveals that August 3rd is somehow tied to "The Google just what you've been waiting for phone" - very likely the launch date.
