Google's official teasers confirm August 3 launch for the Pixel 4a

Did Google just tell us that the Pixel 4a is coming on August 3?

The Google Pixel 4a recently cleared the FCC certification site. It has finally confirmed that a new Pixel device is launching on August 3. You'll have to tap the boxes until they match the Google logo's ordering of blue, red, yellow, blue, green, and red.

The test is sort of latin although some of the words are not real latin vocabulary - words such as "videus chatum", "lowlightena capturum", "megapixelum" and "longlastingis batterum".

If you head to a new special page on the Google Store website, you'll get a puzzle based on "lorem ipsum", a famous describer of placeholder web pages.

The Pixel 4a is an important phone for Google because of the product's reach. We will have to wait and see just what arrives on August 3 to be sure. It also appeared on Google Store, giving us a closer look at the smartphone as well as hinting that the launch could be imminent.

As per the leak, the upcoming Pixel 4a is expected to have a single selfie camera which sits on the top left corner of the display inside a punch-hole cutout. This is the "Google" phone that is expected to come to India, after its more high-end and more expensive Pixel 4 sibling failed to make the cut because of its one-of-its-kind "Soli" radar system, a technology that is banned for commercial use in the world's second largest smartphone market. The device could be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 processor instead of the latest Snapdragon 735 processor and it will be coupled with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB storage. The battery of the Pixel 4a is said to be rated at 3,018mAh with support for 18W fast charging, and expect a physical fingerprint scanner at the back. A previous leak suggested that the Pixel 4a pricing would start at $399 (Rs 30,000 approx) but that was before Apple announced its affordable iPhone SE.
