Google Pixel 4A spotted on BIS certifications

In other news, a new Google Pixel 4A report suggests the phone could launch very soon. It has been spotted in IMDA listing, where the details of the 4a have been revealed. The listing mentions Pixel 4a will support Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and NFC among others.

The report points out the Pixel 4a is being manufactured in Vietnam and in operative state. In addition to IMDA, the phone has also made its way to India’s BIS certification listing. This would imply the phone could launch in July but we’d prefer to hear from Google about the product. The phone will offer 4G connectivity, which suggests it will be using one of many Snapdragon processors.

Last week, the company’s mid-range phone reportedly got its certification from FCC. This is the clearest indication the mid-range Pixel is going to make its debut after multiple delays. The phone was expected to be part of Google I/O 2020 but since the event got canceled, reports said Pixel 4a launch has been pushed to a later date.
