Google Pixel 4A has already created a lot of buzz on the web before the launch. It has showed up in several leaks and rumours, giving us an idea of what we can expect. However, a YouTuber seems to have left us with nothing to imagine as he showed the Pixel 4A prototype in a video, revealing the handset's design and size. Named Julio Lusson, the Cuban YouTuber who has already given us a glimpse of Pixel 4A in videos before, gave out the dimensions of the upcoming smartphone in his latest video.
According to Lusson, the Pixel 4A measures 144.2x69.4x8.4mm, which means it is more compact than the Pixel 3A, which measures 151.3x70.1x8.2mm. The youtuber added that the smartphone is rather light-weight and might be somewhere around 135 grams. All this comes with a polycarbonate body shell, which might not be liked by many but is nonetheless some visible cost cutting measures by Google.

Meanwhile, a separate report states that Pixel 4A will be missing out on one of the key features that has been a standard on Pixel smartphones since the launch of the Google Pixel 2 - Active Edge.The feature allowed users to invoke Google Assistant by squeezing the sides of the phone. HTC offered a similar feature in its phones before it was acquired by Google back in 2017.
Both XDA Developers' Mishaal Rahman and 9To5 Google's Stephen Hall have said the Active Edge will be missing from Google's upcoming smartphone and that Pixel 4a will be first in the Pixel lineup to drop this feature.
