After the multiple delays, Google finally launched the Pixel 4a in August. And now the company has released another variant of it with the 5G connectivity. In Google’s word, the company has put the G in the 5G. Let’s check out the specs, features, expected price, and availability of Pixel 4a 5G in Nepal.
Pixel 4a 5G Overview
Though it is supposed to be the 5G variant of the 4a, the Pixel 4a 5G packs almost the same internal as the slightly more premium Pixel 5. Thus, it is more of a cheaper alternative to the Pixel 5 5G.
Design and Display
With a screen size of 6.2-inch, the Pixel 4a 5G is bigger than both Pixel 4a and Pixel 5. Additionally, the FHD OLED panel on the 4a 5G falls short on pixel density compared to the other two. Depending on the 5G band that it supports, the device weighs between 168g and 171g. While it has Pixel’s 5 HDR and 24-bit depth support, the screen on the 4a 5g is not protected by Gorilla Glass 6 and instead settles for Gorilla Glass 3. Similarly, unlike the aluminum body in Pixel 5, the Pixel 4a 5G sports a polycarbonate body.
At the back, all three devices look the same because of the placement of the square bump, physical fingerprint sensor, and the Google logo. However, the arrangement of the camera and flash is different on the Pixel 4a 5G compared to the other two.
Performance and Memory
Under the hood, Pixel 4a 5G packs the same Snapdragon 765G as the Pixel 5. It is certainly more powerful than the 730G in the Pixel 4a. The 5G connectivity has been made possible because of the integrated 5G modem in the 765G. It can support both the slower sub-6 network as well as the faster mmWave 5G network. However, the latter option is likely to be limited to certain markets. Similarly, the graphics are handled by Adreno 620. It is available with 6GB LPDDR4x RAM and 128GB of internal storage.
Here, the 4a 5G features the camera setup as the Pixel 5. The 12.2MP primary camera is the same in all three devices actually. It supports dual-pixel phase detection autofocus. Similarly, it has OIS and EIS for smoother video recording. The 16MP ultrawide camera is actually an upgrade to the 4a’s camera setup. It offers a 107-degree Field of View and can record 4K videos at up to 60fps. The front camera comes with an f/2.0 aperture and fixed focus. It is capable of recording 1080p videos at 30fps.
Rest of the specs
Pixel 4a 5G’s 3885mAh battery is actually smaller than that on the Pixel 5. It comes with an 18W charger but there is no wireless charging as in Pixel 5. It has the Titan M module that secures the device from external threats. The device runs on the latest Android 11. Similarly, the phone is guaranteed three years of major OS upgrade and security update. Along with the stereo speaker, it also has the 3.5mm headphone jack for the audiophiles.
