Google’s $400 Pixel 3a was well received when it launched last year, and now the search giant could be preparing to launch another similar phone in just a few months.
Google is rumored to be working on a new phone called the Pixel 4a, which, like the Pixel 3a, would serve as a lower-priced alternative to Google’s current flagship smartphone. The tech giant hasn’t confirmed whether or not it’s definitely planning to launch a new sequel to the Pixel 3a.
But Mario Queiroz, the Google executive who previously oversaw its Pixel division before more recently moving to a new leadership role within the company, said it plans to bring premium features to cheaper phones moving forward.
“We think there are a lot of people who would like to get those experiences but they can’t now because those phones cost $1,400,” he said in an interview with Business Insider last year.
The Pixel 3a starts at $400, which is roughly half the price of the Pixel 4. The larger-sized Pixel 3a XL is priced at $480, also making it noticeably cheaper than the $900 Pixel 4 XL.
Here’s a look at what we’re expecting to see from the Pixel 4a, based on rumors that have emerged so far.
