Google has two new 5G phones for 2020, and the most affordable is the Pixel 4a 5G. As the name implies, it’s a 5G-capable version of the affordable Pixel 4a already on the market, though connectivity isn’t the only change made along the way. It’s also larger and has a beefier processor.
The display is a 6.2-inch OLED panel, running at 1080 x 2340 resolution. An 8-megapixel front camera pokes through a hole-punch, while on the rear there’s a 12.2-megapixel main camera, along with a 16-megapixel ultrawide. It supports up to 4K 60fps and 1080p 240fps.
Inside, there’s a Snapdragon 765G with 6GB of memory, plus a 3,800 mAh battery. On the connectivity side, there’s 5G – using Sub-6GHz on the regular model, with mmWave on a Verizon version – along with WiFi 802.11ac and Bluetooth 5.0. Pricing kicks off at $499.
