Google Teases Pixel 4a Launch for 3rd August

The Google Pixel 4a recently cleared the FCC certification site.

You definitely should take this as a confirmation that the Pixel 4a is launching on August 3 and should block the date on your calendar.

The report said that if one looks at the new Google Store website, you will get a puzzle based on "lorem ipsum", a famous describer of placeholder web pages. Clicking the boxes changes their colors, and if you put the colors in the order they appear in the official Google logo (blue, red, yellow, blue, green, red), the boxes disappear and reveal the secret message and a huge date. You can also see the outline of a phone on this page but I'm unsure whether its the Pixel 4a or not.

The test is sort of latin although some of the words are not real latin vocabulary - words such as "videus chatum", "lowlightena capturum", "megapixelum" and "longlastingis batterum".

The header on the Made By Google Twitter handle has also changed with the tagline, "Introducing the Google Phone". We will have to wait and see just what arrives on August 3 to be sure.

Google is also taking a dig at leaks and tipsters. It is expected to run on a Snapdragon 730 SoC with Adreno 618 GPU, and 6GB of RAM with 64GB and 128GB storage options.

Mentioning a Google Pixel 5a at the moment seems so silly knowing that Google will announce the super-delayed Pixel 4a in a couple of days.

The smartphone would miss out wireless charging feature but would get a capacitive fingerprint scanner at the back. The camera is yet again going to be a single 12-megapixel but considering how well Google's camera software is, the performance could be great. Past leaks suggest the Pixel 4a may have a hole-punch display and is tipped to not bundle the Soli chip for motion sensor controls.
