Rumour mill suggesting August 3rd...

I'll be curious but not expecting any reason to upgrade from my note 9. The next full pixels may tempt me, price depending.

some of the European listed prices here (link below) look a bit high, especially if that turns out to be a 64gb model

the 730 cpu is roughly a 20% uptick on the 3A's 670.

other than that not seeing a lot of change

Can't remember where but I read the 4a will only ship with 128GB.

That said the release date has been pushed so much I won't read too much into anything until.it is eventually released.

oneplus nord has a better cpu and screen refresh rate

4a will have better camera quality (even the 3a easily beats the nord there)

I was looking at a few videos showing the screen refresh rate, i dont know is there a bit of a mismatch in the CPU they went for and the 90hz refresh rate , on heavy sites like twitter or similar it wasnt as smooth as i expected. Still pretty good in general usage though

Jon Prosser again, linked to this. https://9to5google.com/2020/07/30/go...ixel-4a-tease/

Must be a certainty now, at least we'll have something to look forward to on the bank holiday.

I watched MKBHD's video on the Oneplus Nord. Never been into that brand myself, though I remember when they first popped on boards.

Are refresh rates that big a deal? I'd only be into them for buying a TV, tbh.

Battery seems iffy on my LG V20, though I could replace and keep it ticking away.

I've had a Pixel 2 XL for a year, intentionally picked it over the 3A since the spec was slightly better (yet cheaper for me) and the 4 since it was ludicrously priced. If this comes in at the rumoured €350, I'm all for it.

I feel the same about the OnePlus Nord, I'd much rather no double camera hole and a smaller sized device.

if anyone still wants the 3A you can get it for €129 if you switch your number (or a random sim card - not all providers accepted)

or €229 if you get it without the number switch

it's unlocked of course

$349 in the us

Brought fwd to usurp the OnePlus Nord which doesn't go on sale until Tuesday and is $399

Camera is a lot better on the pixel than the nord

Also priced below iPhone se which is key / deliberate

it has dual-sim capability but not two physical sim slots.

one physical sim and one eSIM (software sim)

but Ireland doesn't support sSIM for consumers

there's only about 40 countries worldwide that do
