Last year, Google released the Pixel 3A and 3A XL in early May, timed with the opening day of its annual developer conference, Google I/O The two devices were excellent mid-range smartphones, giving owners a superb camera experience at half the cost of the company's flagship smartphones.
A year later, rumors, leaks, and speculation about its successor, the Pixel 4A, are at an all-time high as we wait for Google to officially unveil its newest phone.
What will it be called?
- We assume Pixel 4A
Tech companies are creatures of habit, as are consumers, so we can only assume Google will stick with the same naming scheme as last year and use Pixel 4A as the name.
We still don't know what the "A" means, but one could assume it means "Affordable."
Wait, what about the Pixel 4A XL?
- It doesn't look likely
Good question. Last year, Google released two sizes of its budget-friendly phone, but rumors about the 4A line all point to a single, smaller device.
What will the Pixel 4A cost?
- All signs point to $399... maybe less
Google launched the Pixel 3A priced at $399, and that price makes sense one year later. But with competition from Samsung's Galaxy A51 and Apple's iPhone SE at that price point, it's possible Google will price the 4A a little lower
