Pixel 4a Renders Show Holepunch Camera on the Front, Only One on the Back

By Holly Brockwell on at

New images of Google's upcoming Pixel 4a handset have emerged, and it might be bad news for people who plumped for the OG Pixel 4.

It looks like the new phone will have a 5.7 or 5.8-inch screen with a holepunch camera in the top left corner, which means it should lose that sizeable (for 2020) bezel at the top of the Pixel 4's display and generally look better from the front.

The leaked images, from the usually reliable OnLeaks, appear on 91Mobiles in the form of 5K renders and a 360-degree video.

The back of the phone also differs significantly from the Pixel 4, although in a less positive way: the square camera enclosure has just one lens and a flash, although OnLeaks says there are "more sensors" hiding in there. One lens is a bit poor for 2020, though.

On the bright side, the 4a does have a 3.5mm headphone jack.

91Mobiles says it's "not clear" whether the phone will support the gesture controls on the main Pixel 4, although it seems unlikely. There is a fingerprint sensor on the back, and the phone "should come with at least 4GB of RAM and 64GB internal storage, along with a mid-tier chipset, perhaps the Snapdragon 730 or 765 series options."

The site even predicts the phone might come with 5G, which would make it a significantly more appealing proposition, assuming the price is palatable – it's expected to be around 39,999 Indian rupees, which is about £425. [91Mobiles]
