If it weren’t for the pandemic, the conference Google I/O Google should have taken place this month of may, and the firm of Mountain View would certainly have benefited from this annual event to unveil its new smartphone at mid-range : the Pixel 4a.

However, some are still hoping that Google unveiled the Pixel 4a of this month of may, even if there is no conference Google I/O.
Unfortunately, this is increasingly unlikely. In fact, according to the site Android Authority, a new leak published by the German website Cashys Blog (who would have discovered information on a database of the operator Vodaphone), the Pixel 4a would be released on 5 June.
This date suggests that Google could submit its new smartphone mid-range during the event of presentation of the public beta of Android 11. Indeed, given that the conference Google I/O has been cancelled, Google plans to unveil new features of its mobile operating system during an online event, 3 June.
“Although circumstances prevent us meet in person at Shoreline Amphitheatre for Google I / O, our annual conference for developers, we organize an online event where we can share with you all the best of what’s new in Android. We hope that you will join us for # Android11: The Beta Launch Show, your opportunity to discover what’s new in Android from people who have built Android “, one reads in the official announcement. And obviously, a new smartphone for mid-range could be part of the innovations that Google reserves for this event.
