Following months of speculation, Google has finally launced the Pixel 4a later today. Google itself has been teasing the arrival of its latest budget camera phone and and now we have the specification and pricing of the stripped down version of the Pixel 4

The key feature is the price... at $349 / £349 / AU$599 it is at the bottom end of estimates for the latest in the Pixel phone line-up. There will not be a 4a XL model, for the moment at least – but a 5G version of the Pixel 4a will be launched later this year, priced at $499 in the US.
