Also, there is a high probability of Google unveiling new hardware products including Nest smart home speakers, camera and Pixel 4a series mobiles. 

Unlike the premium Pixel 4 series, the low-cost Pixel 4a will come with smooth shell, most probably made of polycarbonate-based material similar to the Pixel 3a, but there won't be dual-tone colourway. 

On the back,  it is expected to come with  a square camera module, but unlike the top-end model, which has two sensors, the Pixel 4a will have one sensor and LED flash placed diagonally opposite to each other.

For obvious reasons, there won't be any Soli radar in the Pixel 4a; instead Google will be betting on the ever-reliable fingerprint sensor on the back. And yes, Google is most likely to keep the 3.5mm audio jack on top.

On the front, the Pixel 4a is expect to flaunt a punch-hole camera in the top left corner and the rest will be a fully functional display. It is likely to sport an OLED-based screen with either 5.7-inch or 5.8-inch in size.

Under-the-hood, Google Pixel 4a is expected to house Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 processor with 4GB or 6GB RAM and 64GB/128GB storage. There is no word on the battery capacity, but many critics and fans hope Google incorporates at least 4,000mAh cell.
