Coming to the camera configuration, it features a 12 MP AI-powered camera sensor which the company has been using on its flagship devices. On the front side, it comes with an 8 MP snapper with f/2.0 aperture.

Other features on the device include Recorder, which connects with Google Docs to seamlessly save and share transcriptions and recordings; Personal Safety application for emergencies; Live Caption for real-time captioning, etc.

It runs the Android 10 operating system and the phone is likely to get the Android 11 operating system as soon as it gets released. The device is powered by a 3140 mAh battery and supports 18W fast charging technology.

Google Pixel 4a is now up for pre-orders in the United States and will go on sale from 20th August. As for its availability in India, the device will go on sale through Flipkart from October this year.
