Everyone’s been waiting for the Google Pixel 4a to come to life. Until yesterday, a ton of rumours surrounding the device was making rounds at the market and internet. But Google finally launched the smartphone and has made Google Pixel 4a a toned-down version of the Pixel 4 which was launched last year. The smartphone is powered with Snapdragon 730G SoC. It is noteworthy that Google has launched it with a single camera for the rear and front. Even though it is not a flagship device, a single camera at the rear is very unexpected from a mid-range smartphone, but very all know that Google phones deliver excellent camera performance.
