Google Pixel 4A Spotted on US FCC, May Lack Motion Sensor

Google Pixel 4A allegedly went through FCC certification hinting at a future release. Google has already passed its mid-cycle update deadline, as the Pixel 3a launched in May of last year. The Pixel 4A was repeatedly leaked online and was expected to be unveiled during an Android 11 announcement in June, now postponed. If the Google Pixel 5 range follows the tradition and will launch in October, Google should announce its slightly dimmed version of the Google Pixel 4 range very soon.

A new Google phone has been seen on FCC by XDA’s Mishaal Rahman and he claims it is the Google Pixel 4a. The model number on the FCC is G025. To remember, the Pixel 4 came with the model number G020, so it could be possible that this new Google G025 model is the Pixel 4a. Of course, this is speculation and could very well be another device entirely.

Also, The Verge reasons This probable new Pixel 4a model will come without the integrated Soli radar sensor chip for Motion Sense gesture controls. FCC documents do not disclose the millimeter-wave radio frequencies used with the radar chip, suggesting the possible exclusion of the function. Frequencies between 58GHz and 63.5GHz appeared in Pixel 4’s FCC presentations, but are not present in this new Google presentation. The absence could also mean that the Pixel 4a can be launched in India. The Pixel 4 series was not available in India as the frequencies are not yet supported in the country.

The Pixel 4a was expected to launch at the Android 11 event on June 3, but that did not happen. If the phone shows up, it is expected to be priced at $ 349 (approximately Rs. 26,400) for the 128GB model. The 64GB variant is expected to be priced even lower at $ 299 (approximately Rs. 22,600). The phone was also seen on Geekbench last month, and the Pixel 4a was listed to pack 6GB of RAM and Android 10 software.
