“Where is Google’s Pixel 4A?” That is the query we asked two months back, bringing you up to velocity on how Google had seemingly missed the normal window to launch its totally-leaked followup to the company’s outstanding but quick-battery-lived Pixel 4 flagship.
Technically, it’s not a provided that the Google cellphone freshly licensed by the Federal Communications Commission really is the Pixel 4A, nor that Google is truly likely to announce it at any time soon, if at any time.
All we know for positive is that the Google “G025J” can now be bought in the United States, and that we ordinarily see the FCC authorize this kind of telephones soon right before they are official. Google does not make a lot of phones, and it appears to be very likely that because “G020” intended Pixel 4, a “G025” would be some form of 50 %-phase successor.
Oh, but I lied, we can glean one other thing from the FCC filings: this cell phone almost absolutely won’t have Google’s tiny Soli radar sensor chip for “Motion Sense” gesture controls and a lot quicker experience unlocks.
Why do I say that? That radar tech makes use of millimeter wave radio frequencies, which would have to be disclosed in these FCC docs… and they are not. They confirmed up in the Pixel 4 FCC’s filings as showing amongst 58 and 63.5GHz. But it’s not like preceding leaks instructed the Pixel 4A would have Soli, and it is not clear exactly where the sensor would have even lived: leaked illustrations or photos counsel the new mobile phone will not have the Pixel 4’s very same sensor-stuffed bezel to start off with.
Here’s every thing else we assume we know about the Pixel 4a so far, like its rumored 5.81-inch show, processor, battery, camera, and the return of the headphone jack and fingerprint reader.
