Google unveils budget Pixel phone
SAN RAMON, Calif. (AP) — Google has started selling a long-delayed budget smartphone boasting the same high-quality camera and several other features available in fancier Pixel models that cost hundreds of dollars more.
The Pixel 4a unveiled Monday will be available Aug. 20.
It will cost $349, a $50 discount from a cheap Pixel released last year. It’s also a major markdown from other higher-end models in the existing product line-up that start at $799. The next versions of Google’s top-of-the-line Pixel phones will be released sometime this fall, Google said, without revealing their their price.
The budget-minded Pixel 4a is coming out four months after Apple released a discount iPhone, the SE, priced at $399.
