After Pixel 3a, it is the second generation of budget pixels
Mid-range devices have been among the best-selling on Google but are far from being the most profitable business. Premium devices from market leaders like Samsung and Apple are the ones that generate the most revenue but it is the segment that is occupied by Samsung and Apple.
The Pixel 4a comes with a 5.81-inch FHD OLED 1080 ×2340 and a 443ppi display. It has an 8-megapixel front-hole camera and a single 12.2-megapixel rear camera, which captures perhaps the best photos of a phone at this price point. The disadvantage is that the Pixel 4a does not have as many sensors as the more expensive model, for example, an infrared sensor for face recognition is missing.
Google has traditionally taken special emphasis on the camera for pixel phones. For Pixel 4, Google first installed a telephoto lens on the mobile, in addition to the wide-angle main camera.
In terms of hardware specifications, it features the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 SoC, an Adreno 618 responsible for graphics, 6GB RAM and 128GB UFS2.1 of internal memory, and a 3,140 mAh battery with 18W charging. The phone is seen as a direct rival to the OnePlus Nord, iPhone SE and Samsung Galaxy A71. This phone is delivered with the latest version of Android 10.
Since Pixel 3, every Google phone has also had a Titan M chip that contains numerous security mechanisms. Among other things, this ensures that the operating system is not manipulated. The fingerprint sensor is on the back, exactly where it should be.
The two main positive aspects of it are the fact that it is a Google product so updates should come sooner than others and even promise support for it up to Android 14, 3 years of Android updates. Second: The real reason why we would buy a Pixel; The camera.
We mentioned a bit above that there will only be one sensor, but that has never prevented this line from coming out on top of all the others. The benefits of the exclusive Pixel program will come here as well, the photos according to the examples will continue to be fantastic, the colors will be accurate, the contrasts as well and the impressive portrait mode will continue to provide results.
