Google’s next phone, the Pixel 4a, could be just around the corner.
The phone has recently been certified under the code name G025J by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), according to an XDA Developers editor who shared the news on his Twitter account on June 25. FCC certifications are typically one of the last bureaucratic red tape done before launching a device to market, so the news suggests the new mid-range Pixel may be very close to being officially unveiled.
The launch of the new Pixel 4a, which was previously delayed from May to June, is expected on July 13. Rumors suggest that Google considers it more favorable to launch the phone in the second half of the year due to the current coronavirus crisis. The Pixel 4a will be a mid-range smartphone that will arrive with a front camera integrated into the screen, a single camera in the back, a headphone port and without the Active Edge function that allows you to activate Google Assistant by pressing it.
It has been reported that the phone would be priced at US $ 399, with which it could compete with phones like iPhone SE 2020 and according to reports, there will not be a normal model and an XL as there has always been in the Pixel, but only a normal model in black color.
Google has not yet commented on the Pixel 4a.
