UPDATE (June 26th, 2020):
The Google Pixel 4a has just put a few more steps towards the official launch as the much-rumored phone has now been spotted on the official FCC website. It is one of the mandatory certifications for any smartphone to receive before it can be sold in the United States. The listing reveals the model number to be G025J and it also suggests that a launch is just around the corner.
It is also speculated that Pixel 4a will not have the Soli radar chip that Google debuted with Pixel 4. The chip relies on millimeter-wave radio frequencies to work and as seen in the FCC listing, these frequencies have not been mentioned.

Even though the Pixel 4A specs and other details have already leaked numerous times, we still do not have any concrete information regarding the launch. The currently rumored Pixel 4a launch is for July 13th and now, there are new French retailers' listing suggesting that a release is indeed around the corner.
The two French retailers are Ordimedia and eStock that have listed Pixel 4a in the 128GB storage variant. There are two color variants Just Black and Blue meant for the devices. The model numbers for these variants are GA02099-FR and GA02101-FR respectively. These are undoubtedly French unit model numbers and other regions will have different model numbers.
The Pixel 4a 128GB pricing is listed to be EUR 441.95 and EUR 509.56 by the two websites. These are unlikely to be the final prices as Google is expected to price them slightly lower. There have been speculations that the pricing is expected to be around $399 for the base model.
The upcoming Pixel 4a will be a direct successor to last year's Pixel 3a. We even heard about the Pixel 4a XL during the early days of rumors but most recently, it has been reported that Google has actually scrapped the idea of releasing the bigger sibling. The big G is also working on the Pixel 5 series which will be a true Android flagship.
