Google Pixel 4a expected in June alongside Android 11 reveal

Originally it was expected that Google would be releasing the Pixel 4a in May regardless of I/O being cancelled, but fresh information from a German retailer seems to indicate otherwise.

Caschys Blog out of Germany is reporting that the Pixel 4a will now launch on June 5. But now, this date has been changed to June 5.

There's a couple reasons to give this report some credence.

When it comes to Google and its new Pixel phones, the leaks come relentlessly. As reported earlier, this date in the listing was initially May 22 that was expected to be the global availability date for the Pixel 4a.

Talking about the Android 11 Beta Launch Show, the online event will take place on June 3 at 11am ET (8.30pm IST). That same event could be our introduction to the Google's latest phone if the company wants to kill two birds with one stone. So what are we expecting?

Unlike the Pixel 4 series, it's not expected to come with a small and large "XL" version, and it's going with a fingerprint sensor on the rear instead of face unlocking via advanced 3D/optical scanners on the front.

It's thought the delay is down to Google I/O being cancelled.

Whatever course of action Google winds up taking, it sounds like the Pixel 4a launch is imminent. I know more than one of us is already considering it for he phone of the year for 2020 and we've only got leaks and rumours so far.

It also looks like Google is retaining the 3.5mm headphone jack, which will be welcome news if you lament the disappearance of that port from an increasing number of phones.
