The Pixel 4a is expected to go official any day now. There have been so many leaks surrounding Google’s next affordable smartphone that it has become hard to keep track of them. Now, the Pixel 4a has been unintentionally leaked by Google through its own website. Let us have a look at its design.

The 2020 Pixel lineup looks even more disastrous. The phones have leaked but they didn’t make sense. Today, we’re going to decipher Google’s upcoming Pixel smartphones and how they fit into this year’s lineup.

Now, the first Pixel 5 render images have been leaked, giving us a possible look at the phone.
