Google will finally do away with the notch and opt for the punch-hole camera on the Pixel 4a. It will be a single punch-hole camera on the Pixel 4a's display giving more screen room. Leaked renders also revealed a similar camera module on the Pixel 4a like the Pixel 4 which is a square one. This will however be on a single rear camera. It's also expected to house a rear fingerprint sensor. Pixel 4a will also be clad in a plastic body like the Pixel 3a.

Pixel 4a is also said to house aa 3,080mAh battery with 18W fast charging support via a USB Type-C port. In terms of variants, Pixel 4a will come with 6GB of RAM plus 64GB and 128GB as options.
Pixel 4a will come with the 'Now Playing' feature, and the new Google Assistant as well. The smartphone will also be equipped with Google's Titan-M chip for built-in security features. It will also come packed with all the Google Camera goodness. One premium feature it will lack would be face unlock.
The upcoming Pixel 4a is predicted to launch at a starting price of $399 (₹30,600 approx) for the base model. This was also the starting price for the Pixel 3a. Going by this pricing, Pixel 4a would directly compete with the newly launched Apple iPhone SE 2.
