Google Pixel 4a XL (RIP)

by birtanpublished on August 16, 2020

The pixel for Axl is no more having reportedly been well killed by Google but that doesn't mean we can't reflect on what might have been and where the pixel line in general might be headed later in the year I'm Alex I'm a droid central and here's what we know about

The pixel that was never meant to be so first it should come as no surprise the pixel for Axl was gonna be physically a larger version of the already extensively leaked pixel for a that means there's a hole-punch selfie camera

A pixel for style rear only clad in plastic this time and with a pixel imprint fingerprint scanner taking over biometric duties the round as you see here will put together by phone accessory company pink – based on CAD

Renders made available to them and they show a pixel for Axl imagined in a stylish white and orange color pairing along with a bunch of previously confirmed for a features like that 3.5 millimeter headphone jack one crucial

Thing that is different though is the camera module whereas extensive pixel for a leaks have already basically confirmed that phone will use a single rear facing camera the four Axl it seems was planned to have to arranged along

With other sensors in a pixel for style time and arrangement given the history of the pixel line it's probable this second camera would have been a telephoto likely very similar if not identical to the pixel force to time

Zoom lens now two times is nothing to write home about in 2020 but remember the pixel 4 was able to get pretty good computational zoom out of that up to around 5 times thanks to Google software secret sauce

Having this kind of capability in a cheaper phone would have been a pretty big deal these renders are backed up by an errant pixel for Axl back panel that showed up recently on ebay once again showing features like a rift fingerprint

Scanner and a dual camera setup as for the physical size of the for Axl the dimensions leaked by pic 2.2 a design it's significantly more compact than last year's three Axl and in fact only slightly larger than the regular pixel 3

A the standard pixel for a is expected to have a 5.8 inch display diagonal so extrapolating up from that you'd arrive somewhere around a six point three or six point four inch up for the XL fans of strong battery life have also miss

Out on the option of a larger body and thus a largest cell powering the phone given the strong battery of want of last year's pixel three Axl that's a real shame instead the pixel for a is expected pack a three thousand eighty

Million power battery which is only a minor upgrade of the three thousand milliamp hours of its predecessor considering the dismal longevity of the pixel 4 Series it's disappointing that pixel fans won't really have a big

Battery option this release cycle so it appears Google's choice to ditch the XL this time around was mainly a commercial decision with the smaller pixel 3a having apparently sold significantly more units than its big brother and

Given the apparent weak sales of pixel phones in general of the past couple years it might want better business sense for Google to double down on a single phone at a really competitive price as opposed

To spreading the attention over to models including a pricier offering that might turn out to not sell anywhere near as well and if the smaller 4/8 does ship at the room at 350 dollar price point with 128 gigs of storage it could still

Be a really compelling phone still I can't help but feel disappointed the price conscious pixel fans will be denied the choice of a bigger screen better battery life and apparently that secondary telephoto camera as well

Perhaps with its second camera the price of the XL might have been significantly higher than the vanilla for a and when you consider the pixel 5 is room to start at just $6.99 in the u.s. things might have gotten a little crowded

Price-wise had Google pressed ahead with the 4 Axl it's worth noting by the way that code aims for two apparent pixel 5 versions have cropped up in AOSP code listings so apparently both the pixel 5 and pixel 5 XL remain on the cards at

This point anyway what do you think are you lamenting the loss of the pixel for Axl or are you more interested in the smaller cheaper for a or perhaps more expensive 5 or 5 XL be sure to subscribe so you don't miss our coverage of future

Pixels including the pixel 4a which should be dropping somewhere around your life 13 in the meantime thanks for watching and I'll see you next time
