  • Google Pixel 4a has been benchmarked ahead of launch
  • The results of the test show how the Pixel 4a could be a powerful performer
  • The Pixel 4a is tipped to come sporting a Snapdragon 730 chipset

The Google Pixel 4a has seen itself being leaked quite a lot over the past few weeks. From its design, to its specs, much about the device has been made already by some extremely exhaustive leaks. And now, the results of the phone on a benchmarking site has given us a hint about how the device could perform once it's launched.

The new information comes courtesy of XDA Developers which took the effort of using data from a previous video of the Pixel 4a and comparing it to other popular Google phones such as the Pixel 3a XL and Pixel 3 XL among others.

The publication's reports reveal that this Snapdragon 730 totting phone all performs quite well in tests. The phone, the report claims, scored approximately 70% as high as the original Pixel 4 in an AnTuTu benchmark. This score is also on par with the Google Pixel 3 XL in terms of performance and also good enough to beat the Pixel 3a XL.

Interestingly, the 4a is also shown to be able to keep up with more expensive devices as well. The report shows it doing quite well in PCMark's Work 2.0 test, with the phone finishing just a bit behind the Google Pixel 4 and was even closer to the Pixel 3 XL. With the launch of the phone nearing, we expect more such reports to emerge in the coming days.

As fas as the other specs of the phone go, the Pixel 4a in the past has been tipped to bring a mid-range Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 chipset paired with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. The phone is likely to feature a 5.81-inch OLED display with an FHD+ resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels and a refresh rate of 60Hz.

It is said to bring a single rear camera at the back of the phone consisting of a 12.2-megapixel Sony IMX363 sensor with an f/1.73 aperture lens and 1.4Ám pixel size. At the front, there will be an 8-megapixel Sony IMX355 sensor with an f/2.0 aperture lens and 1.14Ám pixel size. Interestingly, this is the same sensor found on the Pixel 3, Pixel 3a, and Pixel 4, while the Sony IMX355 is the same primary front-facing camera sensor found on the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3a.

To keep the phone running, Google is tipped to equip the Pixel 4a with a 3,080mAh battery with support for 18W USB Type-C fast charging. However, the phone will miss out on wireless charging.
