Google Pixel 4a, via ai preordini: ecco quanto costa

Il nuovo mid-range di Google, annunciato da oltre un mese, è finalmente preordinabile anche in Italia

Ci vorrà ancora quasi un mese per averlo, ma almeno adesso lo si può prenotare sul sito ufficiale di Google: il Pixel 4a sta finalmente arrivando in Italia, anche se in una sola versione e in un solo colore. L’annuncio di questo telefono “lowcost" di Google risale ad oltre un mese fa.

Quest’anno la strategia commerciale dei telefoni Pixel è stata praticamente stravolta dall’emergenza Covid-19 e i ritardi sono quindi giustificabili, ma in molti non hanno gradito l’eccessiva distanza tra l’annuncio di Google e l’effettiva disponibilità sul mercato dei nuovi Pixel. Tra l’altro i nuovi Google Pixel (cioè il Pixel 4a, il Pixel 4a 5G e il Pixel 5) non arriveranno tutti insieme ma a distanza di una settimana: prima il 4a normale, poi la versione 5G e il top di gamma. Google's 2020 smartphones, therefore, arrive all abundantly in the second half of the year.

Google Pixel 4a: how much it costs

The official price on the Google store for the Pixel 4a is 389 euros, including shipping. The phone doesn't come with Android 11, which was just presented, but with Android 10. Last year, the Pixel 3a came out before Android 10 and, because of that, users updated it only after they received it. This year Android 11 came out before the Pixel 4a but the phone is due for an update all the same.

The Pixel 4a looks like a 5.8-inch mid-range in size, slightly more compact than the previous Pixel 3a. The latter, paradoxically, at the moment is still on sale on the Google store at a price ten euros higher than that of the 4a: the old smartphone, in fact, costs 399 euros.

Google Pixel 4a: data sheet

The Google Pixel 4a is currently pre-orderable in the version with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage space and in black color only. The SoC chosen by Google for this mid-range device is the eight-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G, flanked by Google's usual Titan M encryption chip.

The screen is a 5.8-inch, 1,080×2,340 pixel resolution OLED (FHD+, at 443 ppi) with HDR support and 19.9:9 aspect ratio. The Pixel 4a has a polycarbonate rear monocoque and a Gorilla Glass 3 coating for the screen.

Being a Pixel, you can not fail to mention the photo compartment: at the front there is an 8 MP f/2.0 fixed focus, while at the rear a dual pixel 12.2 MP f/1.7, with autofocus and optical and electronic image stabilization.

The battery of the Google Pixel 4a, finally, is 3,140 mAh. More powerful, that is, than both that of the Pixel 4 (2,800 mAh) and the Pixel 3a (3,000 mAh).
