Recently, tipsiter Jon Prosser tweeted that Google has indeed postponed the launch of its much-anticipated Google Pixel 4A smartphone. The handset was supposed to come out in May, which was then delayed to June and then to July 13. It was also reported that the Pixel 4A release was supposed to be a staggered one with ‘Just Black' colour variant arriving in August followed by ‘Barely Blue' on October 1. But now he says that the ‘Black' colour variant might arrive by October 22 and that the ‘Barely Blue' colour model has been killed already. However, the unveiling may still take place in July.

Prosser previously confirmed that Google is ready with Pixel 4A smartphone but is not unveiling it possibly due to the market conditions. Some rumours on its specifications have also been making rounds on the web.

One of the latest rumours suggests it to feature wireless charging tech, something that was not present in the Pixel 3a. This information comes courtesy of phone case maker ESR. The ESR listing also hints towards Google's upcoming budget smartphone getting a punch hole display with the front camera being tucked in the top left corner of the screen.

Apart from this, reports suggest that the Pixel 4a will get a 5.8-inch display. It will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 chipset that will be coupled with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage space. The phone is expected to get a 12-megapixel camera at the back along with a 3,080mAh battery. Additionally, the company is expected to ditch the Active Edge feature in its upcoming smartphone. This feature allows users to invoke Google Assistant by squeezing the phone.
