When Google released the Pixel 4a earlier this year, it was the first Pixel ever that was only available in one color. The name of the color was Just Black, and while Google has used the name before, it's never been more accurate.
Google announced today that for a limited time, you can get the Pixel 4a in another color: Barely Blue. As the name describes, it's a light shade of blue and it's a nice variety from a typically black smartphone. It's the same price as the regular Pixel 4a, which is $349.
The Google Pixel 4a drew praise from reviewers, including us, due to just how much value it packs into a device that costs as little as it does. While it has a single-lens camera, it matches up to the main sensor on the Pixel 4, also including fun Pixel features like Night Sight and Super Res Zoom. The screen is now OLED, and you'll find features like Now Playing on the always-on display, which will show you songs that are playing around you without having to launch an app.
It also includes a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G chipset, 6GB RAM, and 128GB of on-board storage. While we were impressed with the camera, performance, and value, the bad news is that there's no wireless charging. You'll need a Pixel 5 for that. There's no 5G either, but there is a Pixel 4a 5G. Unfortunately, the Barely Blue color is only for the regular Pixel 4a.
