French retailers have leaked new details about the Google Pixel 4a. Expected to be announced on July 13, the mid-range smartphone will apparently be arriving in two colours after all. The retailers disagree on the price of the device, but both seem on the high side.
Alex Alderson,

Two French retailers have seemingly confirmed several aspects about the Pixel 4a, Google's mid-range successor to the Pixel 3a. According to the two listings, Google will sell the Pixel 4a in two colours that eStock.fr and Ordimedia call "Just Black" and "Blue". The two colours carry the model numbers GA02099-FR and GA02101-FR respectively, although we would expect Google to use other suffixes to denote different regions. The Bureau of Indian Standards has recently certified the Pixel 4a under the model number G025N, so Google may well be planning multiple regional variants.

The listings also state that Google will offer both models with at least 128 GB of storage, although Google is expected to bring a 64 GB edition to market. The Pixel 4a is thought to also include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 chipset and 6 GB of RAM, which will power a 5.81-inch and 1080p OLED panel.

The two listings show prices for the Pixel 4a, too. However, these differ by almost €70, so we suspect that these are placeholders until eStock.fr and Ordimedia receive more information. According to Steven Hall of 9to5Google, Google is planning to launch the 128 GB model for US$399, with the 64 GB version coming in at US$349. If true, Google's international pricing for the Pixel 3a would suggest that the company will launch the Pixel 4a for €399 and £399 in the Eurozone and the UK, respectively.

According to John Prosser, Google plans to announce the Pixel 4a on July 13. eStock.fr and Ordimedia have placed the launch date a few days earlier than July 13, but these could be placeholders too. Prosser also stated that the device would only be available in black and that it would not start shipping until October.
