With the beginning of a brand new year, many companies are already preparing their next flagships to fill 2020. Google, the search giant, mother of Android isn’t an exception. After releasing the Pixel 4 series in October last year, now the company is preparing the Pixel 4a which will be the successor for the last year’s affordable Pixel 3a. According to rumors, the company will release only a single smartphone this time.
A few days ago, OnLeaks released a couple of renders of Pixel 4a. Today images showing off protective cases for the phone confirm the design. Unfortunately, that means that the weird aesthetics for the camera will be there too. The new smartphone will adopt the same square camera hump found in Pixel 4. However, it doesn’t look right with a single camera. Actually, the camera’s placement looks really weird with the two LED flash modules in the top left. We believe that the other way around would be better.
According to reports, the Pixel 4a will feature a 5.81-inch display and will be the only mid-range Google phone this year. However, if a larger Pixel 4a XL appears a last-minute decision, we don’t expect big changes in the camera design. The case renders also confirm other design elements such as the punch-hole in the display for the selfie snapper. Moreover, the handset will include a 3.5mm headphone jack on top.
Despite the leaks, the new model is expected to debut only in May during Google I/O. So we still have several months to wait for it and a long time to see new leaks popping out. After all, Google isn’t the best in keeping their phones a secret.
