It’s finally here! Google, after nearly three months of delay, launched its budget Pixel 4a smartphone today. The Pixel 4a is the successor to the Pixel 3a that was launched at Google I/O 2019. However, unlike the Pixel 3a series, which consisted of only the 4G models, the newly launched Pixel 4a comes in three variants -- two 5G models and a 4G model.

As far as availability in India is concerned, Google will launch the 4G variant of the Pixel 4a in India in October this year. It will be available for purchase in India via Flipkart.

It’s some time before the Pixel 4a makes its way to India. Ahead of the phone’s India launch, here’s how the Pixel 4a fare against the competition:


The newly launched Google Pixel 4a comes with a 5.8-inch OLED display. It is available in Just Black colour variant with a matte finish. It has a punch-hole display that is stacked towards the left side of the display.
