Google Pixel 4a gets FCC certification, inching closer to the launch
The much-awaited Pixel 4a has now surfaced on the FCC listing for the certification. As per the listing, the device will arrive with three different model numbers – G025N, G025M, and G025J. It looks like the last model number is going to be the US variant. To keep the design clean and minimal, Google is planning to opt for an e-label which means we should not see any markings on the back. Lastly, the FCC listing reveals the list of wireless bands that the device will support.

In terms of optics, we’re looking at a single 12.2MP primary sensor and a single 8MP selfie shooter housed inside the notch. Powered by 3,080 mAh battery, the device will support 18W fast charging support through USB Type-C port.

The report further claims that the Black variant of the device will not launch until October 22 while the Barely Blue option will no longer exist.
