Earlier, it was reported that Google will introduce its new budget smartphone called Google Pixel 4a on May 22. However, according to recent reports, the presentation was postponed to June.
In recent months, there have been rumors that the price of the Google Pixel 4a will start at $399. But this week, we have new information that Google has chosen a more aggressive pricing policy. The version of Google Pixel 4a with 128 GB of flash memory, will cost $349. But, a version with 64 GB of memory should also be available.
This could adversely affect the sales of the iPhone SE, which Apple offers to its customers at a price of $399 for a basic-version equipped with 64 GB of flash memory. Many analysts consider these smartphones to be direct competitors. It seems that the iPhone SE will have a hard time. Its main competitor Google Pixel 4a will be much cheaper.
