Google Pixel 4a 5G is coming to T-Mobile with 6.2-inch display and dual rear cameras


The Pixel 5 isn’t the only new phone announced by Google today.

Google also took the wraps off of the Pixel 4a 5G, and it’s officially coming to T-Mobile. The bad news is that T-Mo isn’t saying yet how much it’ll ask for the Pixel 4a 5G or exactly when the new device will hit its magenta shelves.

We do know that Google itself is pricing the unlocked Pixel 4a 5G at $499. That model will launch in the US in November.

Many of the specs of the Pixel 4a 5G are similar to the Pixel 5. It’s got a Snapdragon 765G processor, 128GB of built-in storage, and an 8MP selfie camera. It’s got the same 12.2MP main cam as the Pixel 5, too, which includes autofocus with dual pixel phase detection as well as optical and electronic image stabilization. There’s a 16MP ultrawide camera with 107-degree field of view, too.

The cameras on the Pixel 4a 5G offer features like Night Sight with Portrait Mode, letting you take quality shots in extremely low light situations that also have blurry portrait mode backgrounds. There’s also Cinematic Pan, which will give your videos ultrasmooth panning for a more professional look.


The Pixel 4a 5G’s spec list also includes 6GB of RAM, a 3800mAh battery, and support for 18W wired fast charging over USB-C. There’s a 3.5mm headphone jack like Google’s Pixel 3a and 4a, plus stereo speakers and a rear fingerprint reader.

The Pixel 4a 5G comes preloaded with Android 11 and is guaranteed to get at least three years of OS and security updates. Google is also including Hold for Me, a feature that’ll use Google Assistant to wait on hold for you when you call toll-free numbers and alert you when there’s a person ready to talk to you, as well as an Extreme Battery Saver mode that can make the battery stretch for up to 48 hours.

With the Pixel 4a 5G confirmed to be coming to T-Mobile, are you thinking about buying one?

    Most likely.

  • This is the one I’ve been waiting for since my Pixel 3a XL, so yes plz!

  • Kent Bourn

    Love my 3a XL! So you bet!

  • pda96

    I actually prefer this phone over the 5. Much better value.

  • JMF_mobile

    If I was in the market for a new device yet I certainly would. Wife really likes her Pixel 3 xl, and my OnePlus 6 is still rocking so not quite ready, though 5G might be nice?

  • Status

    This is like a Google variant of the Galaxy A71.

  • Jonathan Katz

    No mention of the Pixel 5 ?

  • Cash

    I personally would gladly go with the revvl 5g for $100 less. theyre almost identical other then oled screen on the pixel, and better camera software on the pixel.

    • steveb944

      Don’t forget actual software support, huge difference.

    • marque2

      I have to say, OLED screens are pretty nice. Once you try one you never go back. That would be one point for getting the Revvyl

    • TW1ST3D R3DN3CK

      i have a Revvl 5 g and its junk. iam waiting to see if motos going to launch thier 5G phones for T MO! then ill put Revvl up and let it be a paper weight.

    • Marine Veteran

      and the fact the Revvl phones never get OS updates

  • steveb944

    Since (I think) we don’t have regular 4a, definitely recommending this one.

    • The One

      All 3 devices work on the T-Mobile network, so you can purchase your preference elsewhere and still use it without issue.

      • steveb944

        Of course. But most people won’t look past store offerings.

  • Andrea Cristiano Maietta

    I’m on the fence now. I really want the pixel 5 but if this arrives it will be between this and the iphone 12 mini. Unless the drop the pixel 5 as well with this.
    Get us info on the 5!

  • Robert Alverson

    This would be a slam dunk for me if it had the smaller screen of the Pixel 5 (yes smaller). It would be a hard pill to swallow to pay more for the 5 just to get less. Yes world, not everyone wants or values a gigundous phone.
