Google breaks the Pixel 4a smartphone on 3 July 2020 which become breaking news all over tech blogs and YouTube. This is since Google sticks to the company’s growth. Pixel 4a is a mid-range smartphone with a flagship-level camera which is very attractive for many people.
Pixel 4a has a 5.81-inch 1080p display, runs on the Snapdragon 730 processor, has 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage and has a 3140mAh battery. The features are good as they are modified to beat that of Pixel 3a. It runs on Android 10 that is guaranteed a minimum of 3 years of updates which is surprisingly rare on Android. This smartphone has a good quality of cameras. The formula is having three or four or 5 cameras at the back that is comprised of the main camera (like a 48MP or 64MP unit), an ultrawide camera (usually 8MP at this price range) and either a 2MP depth/macro/monochrome sensor.
Google stuffed the Pixel 4a just like pixel 3a with the same single main 12.2MP camera with an f/1.7 aperture and 1.4 μm pixel width, which makes it take incredible photos for a $350. The manufacturers did not add any cameras like those which can be seen on Android phones like depth sensors, ultrawide sensors and macro sensors which are usually of lower quality than what people see on flagships. They focused much on providing a flagship-level camera at a third of the price.
The Pixel 4a or the iPhone SE 2020 has better cameras, this concept was so good with the Pixel 3a to the point where people appreciated the iPhone SE 2nd generation even more in 2020. Apple stuck a flagship-level CPU and a great camera in a sub $400 body without adding extra cameras that would have been lower quality to fit the target budget. The smartphone industry is incredibly competitive. Manufacturers are forced to make some decisions solely on the fact that they have to show that people are getting value for their product.
Google is modifying its products just like its competitors, Apple and Samsung. It is now engaged in manufacturing extra cameras which are more attractive to the customers. However, the manufacturers are charging more money the extra cameras which are only for designing purposes since most users do not use extra cameras.
