Google has previously launched its Pixels in pairs.

New details for the upcoming Pixel 4a have been posted to the web, detailing a phone that has few bumps over the original Pixel 3a, but takes a few good steps in the hardware department. As if there was still something left to spoil, 9to5Google has now sourced the complete specifications of the Pixel 4a.

The phone will feature a 5.81-inch Full HD+ OLED display at 2340 x 1080 resolution.

The Pixel 4a will come in a single size, 9to5Google learned. There's not going to be a Pixel 4a XL.

The packaging itself is nothing special; the design is identical to the Pixel 4 packaging, with a simple white layout showing two thirds of the back of the phone. But you won't be getting 3D face recognition or Motion Sense support on the Pixel 4a. This chipset has been used in the Samsung Galaxy A71 and Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Pro, among other devices, and should offer a decent performance boost over the Snapdragon 670 used previous year. The former is backed by three years of guaranteed updates while the latter is coupled with 18W fast charging via the included USB-C port. Video recording specs will match the Pixel 4, including 1080p @ 30 FPS, 60 FPS, and 120 FPS; 720p @ 240 FPS; 4K @ 30 FPS for the rear camera; and 1080p @ 30 FPS for the selfie camera. Also present is the new Google Assistant that debuted on Pixel 4.

Support for wireless charging isn't included, which isn't surprising considering this is a mid-range phone, but there is a 3.5mm headphone jack.

9to5Google notes that this device will work on all major USA carriers and be available in at least two colors: Just Black and Barely Blue. But that's not necessarily a bad thing.
