According to past info, the Pixel 4a phone had to launch to the stores in May, but that didn’t happen due to something that you may have heard about: the COVID-19 pandemic. Several other delays occurred, but now there shouldn’t be any doubt left for when the phone launches.

You’ll surely want to at least maneuver Pixel 4a a bit, as it shall be capable of pretty impressive things. The phone will be powered by a mid-range Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 chipset, it’s packed with 6GB of RAM, and plenty of storage space for videos, apps, and pretty much anything else you need: 128GB.
