Google don’t just want to compete on price, the want to beat Apple on specifications too by doubling the storage space.

The mid-range smartphone market is highly competitive. According to the latest information, the Samsung Galaxy A51 is currently the best value mid-range smartphone. The new Google Pixel 4a has a solid range of functions, but above all with a good price to performance ratio. 

The Google Pixel 4a comes with a 128GB of internal storage for only £310 SIM free. This means a typical unlimited data contract with a leading operator like Three should cost you less than £40 per month for the duration of a 24-month contract.

Costs Less & More Storage

The predecessor the Google Pixel 3a was placed on the market for £399 a year ago, but only had a storage capacity of 64 GB. A doubling of the internal memory, which is probably not expandable, and a lower entry price should not only compete with the many Samsung smartphones in the middle class, but also with the recently launched Apple iPhone SE (2020). For the latter, the US manufacturer currently costs £429 with 64 GB of storage space. For the 128 GB variant of the iPhone SE costing £479.

Google Pixel 4a Quick Facts

The Google Pixel 4a should be equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 octa-core chip, 6 GB of RAM and a 5.81-inch OLED display (2340 x 1080 pixels). Initial camera tests on the smartphone also confirmed a single 12.2-megapixel sensor on the back and an 8-megapixel camera for selfies and video calls on the front of the device. The Google Pixel 4a will be officially launched on May 22.
