There might not be a Google Pixel 4a XL this year

A new rumor surrounding the Google Pixel 4a series claims that this time around, Google will not be launching a Pixel 4a XL. If true, this would be a strange move from Google as it has always launched a regular and XL-sized variant of the Pixel.

Renders of the Pixel 4a have already leaked giving us a look at its design, though that leak was short on actual details about its specs.

YouTuber Dave Lee claims that the Pixel 3a has likely sold better than the Pixel 3a XL which probably led Google to take the decision of not launching a Pixel 4a XL this year.

In terms of size, the Pixel 4a will be 8.2mm thick and despite packing a bigger 5.81-inch FHD+ AMOLED display (vs. 5.6-inch on the Pixel 3a), it will be smaller in size than the outgoing Pixel. The device will miss out on wireless charging but continue to feature a physical fingerprint sensor at the back and a headphone jack.

The YouTuber also confirms a single camera at the rear of the phone instead of a dual-camera system as found on the Pixel 4 series.

Dave also claims that Google will launch the Pixel 4a in three colors: Black with a green power button, White with a coral power button, and blue with a hot pink power button.

There's no word on the price or other specs of the Pixel 4a, though to keep the pricing in check, the device will miss out on Project Soli meaning it won't have any of the Motion Sense features as seen on the Pixel 4. On the flip side, the lack of Project Soli hardware will allow Google to launch the Pixel 4a in more countries.
