Pixel 4A and 4A XL: Rumors, release dates, specs, prices and more

In May of last year, Google launched the Pixel 3A and 3A XL. It was the Pixel phones’ first foray into a more affordable price bracket — and perhaps Google’s return to the cheaper Nexus days of yore. Priced at hundreds of dollars less than its main Pixel 3 flagship counterpart, the Pixel 3A phones shaved off key features like wireless charging and water resistance. But it remained a viable alternative for Android users looking for a Pixel phone experience at a lower cost.

The strategic move worked and the Pixel 3A doubled Google’s Pixel sales by that summer. As such, we expect sequels to the Pixel 3A phones, which would presumably be called the Pixel 4A and 4A XL, to come soon. This is especially true since Google’s rivals released a number of its own midtier handsets. Within the month of April alone, Apple launched its new $399 iPhone SE, Samsung announced its next lineup of midrange Galaxy A phones and Motorola debuted its sub-$300 Moto G Power and G Stylus. Now more than ever, phone-makers are targeting people on tighter budgets, who might otherwise have just held onto their old phone for another year.

In anticipation of Google’s expected announcement of the Pixel 4A and 4A XL (keep in mind, the company has not released any official news yet), we gathered the most compelling and interesting rumors about the devices. And until the launch happens, check back often as we update the roundup.
