It seems that the saga with the release of Pixel 4a is nearing a denouement. Around March this year, information about the smartphone began to appear with enviable regularity. First, we saw what the device would look like, then the retail box lit up, which hinted at an early release. Obviously, COVID-19 influenced Google’s plans to release a smartphone (it was expected to be presented at the Google I / O conference), but the wait was so long that they began to talk that the Pixel 4a will be presented as the Pixel 5a, and it will appear on sale in the fall.
Now it has become known that the Pixel 4a has been certified by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). This suggests that the Google device, codenamed “G025J”, may be sold in the United States. As a rule, this means that the release of the device will take place very soon.
By the way, based on the FCC data, we can confidently say that the Pixel 4a will be deprived of the Soli radar, which was introduced in Pixel 4 (support for the required frequencies is not announced). Actually, no one would have been surprised at his absence in the budget version of the device, especially since this chip has not gained much popularity.
Well, now it remains to wait for the official announcement from Google. It was previously reported that it will be held on July 13.
