Some of these rumors talk about Google having to cancel the larger version, the Pixel 4a XL model, and just switch to the basic Pixel 4a model.

Prosser tweeted that the device was originally slated for launch in May and then got pushed to June, before being deferred again now. The device is rumored to come with a $349 price tag in the United States and will be released in two colors, Naked Blue and Pure Black.

Prosser also stated that the Pixel 4a will not be supporting any kind of 5G network and that the feature will be reserved for the Google Pixel 5 and Pixel 5 XL.

The Pixel 3a was launched a year ago for $399, the same price as the iPhone SE 2020, and took some very impressive photos for its price bracket. In contrast, the new iPhone SE has a smallish 4.7-inch display surrounded by unsightly thick bezels which make it look like a phone from a long time ago.

The only downsides are the lack of water resistance, expandable storage and lower performance, since both phones are equipped with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 670 and not the Snapdragon 845 found on the Pixel 3. But the main differentiator between these phones and the Pixel 4a will be the price; Pixel 4 starts at $799, and the Pixel 4a is likely to start at $399.

There are plenty of great Memorial Day weekend tech deals to be had, but if you're looking for a great smartphone, the Pixel 3a or the Pixel 3a XL is your best option. Although the new iPhone SE has been pitted against the Pixel 3a, and Samsung Galaxy A51 in many comparisons due to their similar pricing, the 4a could be the real challenger to the iPhone when it arrives. However, according to the latest shared reports, Google's new flagship will be powered by the Snapdragon 765, which we frequently see on mid-range phones.
