We’ve known for quite some time now that Google is hard at work on its latest budget smartphone, the Pixel 4a. There has been a slew of leaked mockups of the device since December, and now it appears as though instead of trying to stop the leaks, Google are embracing them.
The tech giant recently updated its Twitter header with new cryptic artwork, including what appears to be a punch out of the Pixels front camera in the top left corner of the image. Google also made the unusual choice of changing its twitter handle to “The Google RTing, Meme Loving, Info Sharing Stream,”.
What’s even more strange is the fact that the updated twitter page now links to what seems to be an unfinished website filled with Latin text, a colour-changing headline, and a single image of an unfinished smartphone. Engadget reported that the website also revealed the release date for the Pixel 4a as Monday, 3 August along with the phrase “Just What You’ve Been Waiting For”.
The price for Google’s latest device is yet to be announced, but 9to5Google’s Stephen Hall has gone on record and stated that the base 4GB model should sell for around R5800 [$350].
