The Pixel 4a runs on a mid-range Qualcomm chipset, the Snapdragon 730G accompanied by 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. It features a 5.81 ″ (60Hz) AMOLED display and 12.2MP main photo sensor identical to that of the Pixel 4. One can therefore expect such stunning picture quality.

The selfie sensor seems less performing with 8 Mp – but we know that Google is very good at getting around this kind of limitation thanks to a very controlled AI. Unlike its big brothers, Google does not fuss. It doesn’t have advanced facial recognition, but a simple fingerprint sensor on the back like most manufacturers offered it just a few years ago.

It is also devoid of microSD port and water resistance. This model is only 4G – but there are rumors that a 5G version is coming soon.
