The Google Pixel 4a is billed to launch later this month. The phone is expected to edge the competition with its camera performance, and one would envisage it to show an overwhelming dominance if pitted against a Redmi Note 7. Reality, however, is often disappointing.
Ricci Rox,

The Google Pixel 4a is billed to launch shortly, with the phone even getting listed on a European retail store a few days ago. The Pixel 4a's unique selling point is undoubtedly its cameras, and camera samples from the phone have now surfaced ahead of launch.

In a tweet by Julio Lusson of TecnoLike Plus, the Pixel 4a's samples were juxtaposed against shots by Xiaomi's Redmi Note 7. Seeing as the Redmi Note 7 is a considerably cheaper phone that was released well over a year ago, one would expect the results to be a foregone conclusion. Last year's Pixel 3a already had better cameras than anything Xiaomi had to offer at the time after all.

While the first indoor shots show the Pixel 4a's dominance, the second set of shots are a lot closer than we'd expect. The Pixel 4a's shot looks a lot more saturated than most would like, and the Redmi's shot has a cooler tone—which is what one would expect from a Pixel. How the tables turn. The Pixel 4a's shot is considerably sharper, though.

That said, these shots were likely taken on a phone running on pre-release software, and the final product should be better.
