New Pixels—and new prices—are here

Pixel 4a

Last year, Pixel 3a gave people a chance to get the helpful features of Pixel at a more affordable price. This year, Pixel 4a — which launches this month — and the first 5G-enabled Pixels, Pixel 4a (5G) and Pixel 5 coming this fall, will continue to bring the features users love — like an incredible camera and feature drops that make your phone better over time — packaged in sleek new hardware at more affordable prices.

Same great Pixel camera, new lower price
With the same incredible camera from Pixel 4 and a new re-designed hole punch design, Pixel 4a brings the same features that have helped millions of Pixel owners take great shots. HDR+ with dual exposure controls, Portrait Mode, Top Shot, Night Sight with astrophotography capabilities and fused video stabilization—they’re all there.

Help for those who need it
In addition to features like Recorder, which now connects with Google Docs to seamlessly save and share transcriptions and recordings (English only), Pixel 4a will feature helpful experiences like the Personal Safety app for real-time emergency notifications.

Pixel 4a also has Live Caption, which provides real-time captioning (English only) for your video and audio content. New with the Pixel 4a launch--and available for Pixel 2, 3, 3a and 4 users--Live Caption will now automatically caption your voice and video calls.

New Google Assistant in more languages
Introduced last year, the new Google Assistant is also available on Pixel 4a to help with multitasking across apps and getting things done fast, like finding a photo or sending a text. You can now try out the new experience in French, German, Spanish and Italian, in addition to English, with more languages coming soon. Learn more at
