It is widely rumored that Google could be planning on launching the Pixel 4a smartphone in the near future. The Pixel 3a, which was the first of the lineup, was basically a budget version of the Pixel 3, and it did surprisingly well, or maybe not so surprising when you consider its price.
This year, Google could be bringing the fight to Apple who recently launched the iPhone SE. According to a report from 9to5Google’s Stephen Hall, it seems that the upcoming Pixel 4a could be priced at a very affordable $349. This not only makes it cheaper than its predecessor, but cheaper than the iPhone SE.
Google is also rumored to not be skimping on the storage front, where the company is said to be launching the Pixel 4a with a base storage of 1288GB. This is versus the Pixel 3a and the iPhone SE, both of which were launched with 64GB, a paltry by today’s standards. If the rumors are true, then the Pixel 4a could very well be one of the must-have Android phones of 2020, especially for those of you who are seeking value for money handsets.

In the past few years, we’ve seen companies raise the prices on smartphones to astronomical figures, but it seems that they’re also starting to realize that not all customers want to pay those prices. Apple has seen massive success with the iPhone XR lineup, and we imagine that the iPhone SE should perform just as well, although it could now be facing a challenger in the Pixel 4a.
