Extra sketchy Pixel 4a pictures have turned up on-line.
This time round, one of many pictures posted on Twitter by TechDroider (@techdroider) exhibits the Settings menu, together with the ‘Pixel 4a’ identify within the description of the ‘About phone’ (on the pictured gadget, it’s the ‘Acerca del dispositivo’) part. If the pictures are professional, this confirms the upcoming mid-range Pixel would be the 4a, successor to final yr’s wonderful Pixel 3a.
Additional, the pictured gadget is sporting what seems to be a material case much like what Google has launched alongside its last few phones. The case options an odd lower within the prime left nook that means the Pixel 4a might have a headphone jack of some type. Moreover, in one of many pictures, you may see that the cellphone has a white energy button much like the Pixel 4.

Nonetheless, there are some things within the leaked pictures that decision the authenticity into query.
For one, it’s laborious to see the place the cellphone’s earpiece is, though if you happen to look very intently at a number of the photos, it appears to be like like there’s a brief line on the very prime fringe of the show. It’s potential this might be the earpiece, however it’s not clear. On prime of that, in all however one of many photos, there’s no clock seen within the prime left nook.
As 9to5Google factors out, eradicating the clock isn’t precisely potential with out utilizing an app like SystemUI Tuner. Whereas it’s potential that the one that took the images of the cellphone put in that app, it isn’t listed within the app drawer.
It’s additionally price noting that the Pixel 4a within the photos doesn’t completely line up with previous leaks. The sq. digital camera bump on the rear, in addition to the fingerprint scanner, match up with what we’ve seen before. Nonetheless, the hole-punch selfie digital camera proven on this leak is positioned completely within the nook. Previous leaks have it offset in order that the clock matches between the digital camera and the sting of the display screen.
Nonetheless, that in and of itself doesn’t imply something — small variations between sketchy leaks don’t disqualify both leak and I’d say we will be pretty assured the ultimate Pixel 4a will look much like the gadget pictured right here.
As for when the Pixel 4a will truly launch, that’s a unique story. Contemplating Google launched the 3a at Google I/O final yr, I’d count on it to do the identical this yr. Nonetheless, the search big has already cancelled the live I/O event for this year over coronavirus issues months forward of it happening in Could. Google will doubtless unveil the 4a by a live-stream on-line occasion as an alternative.
