If you were having any doubts related to Pixel 4a design renders and leaks, Google is here to clarify them. The Canadian version of the Google Store has accidentally revealed what the Pixel 4a would look like and prizes for guessing, it is exactly the same as shown in render leaks so far.
The official Pixel 4a render was posted by Google on the banner image meant for Nest WiFi. The image has been corrected since then as it was clearly a mistake. The render shows the Pixel 4a in the Black color variant with a glimpse of both the front and back panels. One can easily see notice the punch-hole in the top left corner meant for housing the selfie shooter.
The wallpaper on the phone has the date set to May 12th which is the day Google I/O 2020 was scheduled to begin before it was scrapped altogether. It seems like Google was planning to announce the phone on the same day but has changed plans. The back panel has a square-shaped camera module like Pixel 4 but has only a single rear camera. There is also a traditional fingerprint scanner on the back of the smartphone. Lastly, there is a different colored power button which is a signature Pixel device design scheme.
The Pixel 4a is set to be a direct successor to last year's Pixel 3a. It is tipped to be a mid-range smartphone with significantly affordable pricing than the premium flagship. The launch date is unknown but the accidental listing suggests it should be closer than ever.
