Google has just introduced the “low cost” version of the Pixel 4, its highest-end phone, called Google Pixel 4a , which maintains many of its features, quality hardware and all at a more affordable price.
The new Google Pixel 4a can be obtained from 349 USD, and although it was presented this afternoon, the truth is that we will still have to wait a bit to be able to release it. The device can be preordered in USA now and will arrive at the Google store, for all customers, on October 1.

Google Pixel 4a features
As for the design, it will only be marketed in black , matte (although with a green pepper power button), and it has a 5.8-inch OLED screen.
Its main camera is similar to that of the Pixel 4, with 12.2 Megapixels at the back and 8 Megapixels at the front. In addition, it incorporates HDR+ function with dual exposure control, Portrait Mode, Best Shot, Night Vision with Astrophotography and video stabilization.
It also includes some useful functions, such as the Recorder, which connects to Google Docs to save and share transcripts and recordings, although it is a tool that is currently only available in English (although Google promises new updates soon).
It also includes the Personal Security application, which offers emergency notifications in real time, and the Instant Subtitles, which offers real-time text for videos, audios, audio calls and video calls, although for now, this function is also only available in English.
The new Google Assistant is also available on the Pixel 4a, a phone that features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G processor, a Titan M security chip for device security, 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. The battery has 3,140mAh capacity, which guarantees a usage time up to 12 hours.
The new Pixel 4a is set to be a competitor to the iPhone SE (2020), released by Apple in April to meet the needs of users who can’t afford a top-of-the-range phone and don’t want to forgo good features for an affordable price. In any case, making the comparison, its characteristics are somewhat removed from those of the best cheap mobile phones that can be found on the market today, for similar or even lower prices.
