It will be interesting to see if the Pixel 4a will be up for the challenge.

Google's Pixel 4a, initially rumored to become official at the Google I/O conference in May - which didn't happen because of the coronavirus - is finally close to launch, it seems.

The report said that if one looks at the new Google Store website, you will get a puzzle based on "lorem ipsum", a famous describer of placeholder web pages.

The header on the Made By Google Twitter page has also changed with the tagline, "Introducing the Google Phone".

If you change the six tiles to the same colours of the Google logo - blue, red, yellow, blue, green, and red - they will reveal the full sentence, which reads: "The Google Just What You've Been Waiting For Phone".

The test is sort of latin although some of the words are not real latin vocabulary - words such as "videus chatum", "lowlightena capturum", "megapixelum" and "longlastingis batterum". It has been leaked extensively over the past few months and we all expected it to be launched some time in May. If you remember, the Pixel 4 was not launched due to certain issues with the Soli radar. It shows a tiny punch-hole on the upper left corner and several colourful boxes between the text "The Google Phone". The upcoming smartphone may arrive with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.

A fingerprint sensor is also placed at the back of the smartphone, and there is a speaker grille at the top of the display. Google is yet to confirm that this upcoming device that is being teased is the Pixel 4a, or not. The camera is yet again going to be a single 12-megapixel but considering how well Google's camera software is, the performance could be great. A previous leak suggested that the Pixel 4a pricing would start at $399 (Rs 30,000 approx) but that was before Apple announced its affordable iPhone SE.
