The Pixel 4a has leaked in additional ways than we can count at this level, and now even Google is receiving in on the enjoyment. The company up to date its Canadian online retail store today, and whoops. It positioned an official render of the Pixel 4a on the product web site for Nest Wifi. Oh, it preset the miscalculation later, but the proverbial cat was out of the bag.
We all predicted the Pixel 4a to launch in May at Google I/O, and Google would in all probability have favored that transpired. Alas, this is 2020, and situations conspired from Google (and the rest of us). As the COVID-19 pandemic unfolded, Apple introduced its lengthy-awaited Iphone SE 2. At a time when folks are additional hesitant to devote massive on phones, Apple has presented a compelling budget cellphone selection with much better specs than the predicted 4a. So, Google just didn’t release the cellphone.
We’ve expended the intervening months speculating about what Google would do with the 4a. Would it be canceled? That seemed not likely looking at as there are done models floating all around the shadier corners of the internet. Would it rebrand the 4a as element of the Pixel 5 relatives? Which is a bit additional compelling, but the Pixel 5 may possibly not launch until finally late 2020 with all these coronavirus-similar delays. Which is a lengthy time for Google to sit on stock. Ok, what about just delaying the launch? It’s hunting more and more like that is what Google has finished.
Very guaranteed these are, from remaining to right: Pixel 4a, Pixel 5, Pixel 4a XL (not launching), and Pixel 4a 5G https://t.co/9nrnsZ5RiY

The Nest Wifi product web site didn’t incorporate any data about the cellphone over and above the graphic, but it is a new render that has not leaked in advance of. It was also adequately formatted for the Google Keep. That implies there is a actual Pixel 4a retail store web site in the functions. The graphic reveals the phone’s gap-punch digital camera, rear-facing single digital camera, and a fingerprint sensor. It all jives with the multitude of backlinks.
In modern times, a 5G variant of the Pixel 4a has appeared in leaks. We really don’t know a great deal about this product, so it is attainable the graphic in Google’s storefront was really the 5G cellphone. These very same leaks claim the 4a will be a single of three phones Google releases in 2020 along with the 4a 5G and the Pixel 5. Of course, there may possibly not be a Pixel 5 XL at all. 2020 is shaping up to be a really weird release cycle for Google, and the Pixel 4a leak is just the most current chapter.
