When Google announced the Pixel 4 series, there wasn’t much of a surprise factor. Yes, it did have many new features but the internet had flaunted all of them for several months leading to the actual event. Just like that, there have been certain updates to the younger sibling as well. Google launched a budget version of the Pixel, the Pixel 3a series. Steve H.McFly of OnLeaks and 91Mobiles pushed out some CAD-based renders of what the Pixel 4a series may look like.
The Pixel 4a
According to the article published on 9to5Google, the renders suggest a pretty similar form factor to the existing Pixel lineup. These CAD-based designs are one of the first looks at what these devices may look like. Given that fact, it is quite possible that the end product may turn out to be completely different. For its initial impressions, it resembles the basic Pixel 4 device. It houses the same form of the camera bump we saw on the Pixel 4. Though it does seem redundant considering the fact that the device only showcases on a single sensor on the back. Perhaps this part may be true since Pixel “a” devices are budget-friendly and they could only achieve that by cutting a few corners here and there.
The back also shows that there is a fingerprint sensor there. Again to save on cost, the device is least likely to feature the set of sensors found on the Pixel 4 devices for facial unlocking. In these designs, we see entire profiles of all the angles. From the top, we see a 3.5mm jack which would be a plus considering that very few devices still have it. On the bottom, there is a microphone slit and a speaker grill, pretty standard. As for the screen, the device seems to feature a better screen to body ratio. Not to mention a punch-hole camera in front.
The base model may feature a screen size somewhere between 5.7 and 5.8-inches. The article states that the dimensions for this device would be 144.2 x 69.5 x 8.2mm. Considering these are initial leaks, OnLeaks has had a good track record, although take these with a grain of salt!
