UPDATE (May 21st, 2020):
Jon Prosser, a well-known YouTuber and tipster, is back with another leak but this time around, he is talking about Android. He tweeted that the Pixel 4a launch has been pushed back further and is now set for July 13th. It was previously expected to arrive sometime in June but an extra one-month delay has been added. He further added that the Pixel 4a will not have 5G support and will be available in two colors: Just Black and Barely Blue.
Original (May 12th, 2020)
Google was widely speculated to unveil the affordable Pixel 4a sometime during the month of May but due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, companies have been forced to change their plans. A new report from Caschys Blog, a German publication, claims that the Pixel 4a launch has been delayed until the next month.
The report is based on Vodafone Germany's internal documents obtained by the publication. The documents mention that the Pixel 4a will go on sale starting June 5th. Even though the launch date is for the German market, we can expect it to be the same or around the same day for other European markets as well.
Another reason to believe the rumored date is that Google has already pushed back Android 11 Beta until June 3rd. It will hold an online-only event on the day where we are likely to get the Pixel 4a unveiling. It is an event where it is further expected to make announcements originally meant for Google's annual developer conference i.e. Google I/O 2020.
If we talk about reports and leaks so far, the Pixel 4a should arrive with a bezel-less punch-hole display. The choice of processor is expected to be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 coupled with up to 6GB of RAM. It seems like Google will continue with a single-camera setup on the back panel that is said to be housed within a square-shaped camera module.
