Year-over-year upgrades tend to bring modest improvements, but upgrading from the Pixel 3a XL to the Pixel 4a 5G is an exception. The display on the Pixel 4a 5G is 6.2-inches compared to a 6.0-inch display on the Pixel 3a XL. And, despite the display growing by 0.2-inches, the overall size of the phone shrinks by 0.2-inches in height. The Pixel 4a 5G measures in at 6.1 (H) by 2.9 (W). Highlights of the Pixel 4a 5G display include a resolution of 2340 x 1080, an always-on display, a Gorilla Glass 3 glass cover, and HDR support. Of course, as the name suggests, you’ll also get 5G connectivity with the Pixel 4a 5G. Other features of the Pixel 4a 5G include a 3,885 mAh battery, 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, Snapdragon 765G with Octa-Core processor, an 8MP hole-punch style camera on the front, and a 12.2MP dual-pixel and 16MP ultrawide camera setup on the back.
