A little over a month ago Apple unveiled its new iPhone SE, a compact device, with a rather controversial screen size but with one of the most powerful processors of 2020. small on the outside but big on the inside.
Since then, many have not only called Apple's new terminal the "killer" of the mid-range Android, but the debate on the the fact that brands have to bet on the launch of compact and powerful phones.
Huawei came up with it by saying that terminals with small screens make no sense today, however there are not a few users who would pay for whatever it was (it's an exaggeration). because Google will launch today its mythical Nexus 5 completely renewed.
But no, Google will not revive its Nexus range but will soon make its new terminal, the Pixel 4a, official. A mid-range device that the truth is it could be the Nexus we've all been waiting for.
Google Pixel 4a: One of the best phones of 2020?
I have said it and will continue to say it. The Google Pixel 3a was one of the biggest phones last year. It obviously wasn't the most powerful device on the market but I didn't even need it. Android in its stock version, yes has been updating for several years, a camera equivalent to a high-end camera and a fairly competitive price.
The Pixel 4a aims to follow the same line as its predecessor but according to rumors it will have an important difference. A lower starting price. That is, if the Pixel 3a went on the market at 399 dollars, it would cost about 350. Also according to rumors.
That would be a big blow to Apple's new iPhone SE. It wouldn't have the same processor (Pixel performance is beyond question as well) but it would have a larger screen and, above all, a better camera.
But it wouldn't be just competition for the Apple terminal. The Pixel 4a is going to be a breath of fresh air in a market dominated by ridiculously priced phones. A market where phones exceed 1.000 euros and where even companies that have always stood out for their competitive prices, such as OnePlus or Xiaomi, are unrecognizable.
Obviously Google Pixels are still a niche market and this Pixel 4a will have enough details that won't make it a perfect device, but that today a terminal with decent performance, years of upgrades and a high-end equivalent camera for under $ 400 is great news. .
We may not see anything like what Google achieved with its Nexus years ago, but the Pixel 'a' is close to achieving it. If all the rumors are true, keep in mind that Google Pixel 4a will be one of the most interesting phones of this 2020, even above phones that double in price. I hope I'm not wrong.
