Apple’s second-generation iPhone SE is earning accolades for its outstanding performance and low price tag. It is such a winning combination that the 2020 handset is considered to be one of the best values currently available on the market. That title may be short-lived thanks to the upcoming launch of Google’s Pixel 4a, which may be right around the corner. If we believe the prevailing rumors, the Android handset may rival the SE in performance and possibly even undercut it in price.
Google’s Pixel 3a debuted last year and was a smashing success. Now the company is back again with another budget flagship phone, the Pixel 4a. Following the debut of the affordable iPhone SE 2nd generation, everyone, especially Android fans, want to know how the Pixel 4a will compare.
According to a report from The Information, the Pixel 4a may be priced competitively with the iPhone SE. Like Apple’s new iPhone, the Pixel 4a may debut with 64GB of internal storage and a price tag of just $400. Another rumor from Stephen Hall at 9to5Google sweetens the deal on the Pixel 4a.
According to Hall, the Pixel 4a would do more than just match the iPhone SE 2020, but it actually may undercut the cost of the iPhone SE by up to $100. Based on Hall’s leak, the 64GB Pixel 4a could cost as little as $299 while the 128GB model could debut for an equally wallet-friendly $349.
Apple’s iPhone SE went on sale in April, and early sales have been strong, said Apple CEO Tim Cook during the company’s recent earnings conference call. When speaking about the company’s new spring products, Cook confirmed that all of their new products “have been very well received by reviewers and consumers alike.”
The iPhone SE is available now at a starting price tag of $399 for a 64GB model. Those who can upgrade a line on Verizon or AT&T can save $200 on the phone with this limited-time deal over at Walmart.
