Google's mid-range warrior, the Pixel 4a, has finally become real. After months of wait, and several delays, the tech giant has finally launched this much-anticipated smartphone to the world. In the lead up to the launch, the Pixel 4a had been leaked a number of times, with not only its entire spec sheet but also design and features leaked online ahead of the official unveiling.
Google Pixel 4a: Price and availability
The Pixel 4a has been announced in a single model, with no XL model this year. This model comes with a 5.81-inch display and has been priced at $349. Interestingly, there is only a single variant here with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage that's currently been announced for retail. Another interesting thing to note here is that the Pixel 4a has been launched at a much more affordable price point than the Pixel 3a. The phone's price for India hasn't been announced yet, but the device will go on sale in India later in October.
There will also be another 5G variant of the Pixel 4a that the company has revealed will start selling later in the year -- but not in India.

Camera features are tipped to include 4K 30fps video recording and 1080p 120fps recording. For battery, the phone has been announced to get a 3,140mAh battery pack for keeping the lights on. All this hardware is wrapped inside a body measures 144x69.4x8.2mm and weighs about 143 grams only.
