Google Pixel 4a video leak doesn't leave much for Google to announce
We’ve seen apparent Google Pixel 4a images leak online earlier this week, and it now looks like we’ve got a ton more information thanks to a new video.
The video, by TecnoLike Plus (h/t: 9to5Google), shows what seems to be the Pixel 4a. And its design largely matches up to leaks seen this week and from OnLeaks late last year.
That means a punch-hole in the left corner, a 3.5mm headphone port at the top, a square rear camera housing featuring a single shooter in the lower right, and a rear fingerprint scanner.
But the video also delivers some key system specs courtesy of the AIDA64 app. The app lists the Sunfish model name (previously reported by XDA), Snapdragon 730 chipset, Adreno 618 GPU, 6GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and a 5.81-inch 2,340 x 1,080 display with a 60Hz refresh rate.
Other noteworthy details spotted in the video include a 3,080mAh battery and dual-SIM support. The former isn’t exactly big for a budget phone in 2020, especially when the likes of Xiaomi, Huawei, and Samsung are now offering 4,000mAh+ batteries in many devices. But it’s still bigger than the standard Pixel 4 battery.
It seems pretty convincing, but there is one detail that has us questioning this leak. In addition to listing the Snapdragon 730 as a chipset, it also lists the chipset as SM6150. The Snapdragon 730’s model number is actually SM7150, while SM6150 corresponds to the Snapdragon 675. This could be chalked up to the early nature of the phone’s firmware, or perhaps an oversight as part of an otherwise elaborate fake clip.
However, Cuba-based TecnoLike Plus reports that the Pixel 4a was sold to a person living in Cuba by someone who sells devices “as a private business on the island.” Furthermore, the phone owner told the outlet that the seller didn’t know what phone it was. So it definitely seems like someone got their hands on an unannounced phone at this point.
