The Google Pixel 4a XL will not be released but thanks to our collaboration with David from @xleaks7, we know what it would have looked like if Google had launched it. His source also confirmed that the phone has officially been cancelled, so don’t wait around for the Pixel 4a XL just yet.

Google Pixel 4a XL dimensions

154.3 x 73.9 x 8.2mm, that’s the approximate size of cancelled Google Pixel 4a XL. That actually makes the phone significantly smaller than the Pixel 3a XL and puts it closer to the Pixel 3a range. The 3a XL, which the company sells right now, 160.1 x 76.1 x 8.2 mm. Everything else remaining constant, this could have made the Pixel 4a XL a great device for those who want a big screen with an at least somewhat pocketable form factor.

Google Pixel 4a XL Design

There’s a punch hole camera on the front left of the phone, which gives you a higher screen to body ratio and should make for a more immersive experience. Additionally, Google had used dual cameras on the back, which when combined with the company’s prowess with camera software, would presumably lead to great results. Dual camera would definitely surprise Pixel fans at lower price range.

What will perhaps have disappointed some users is that Google was retaining the plastic body and matte finish on the phone. While plastic doesn’t necessarily make for a bad phone, many prefer glass or metallic designs nowadays, since they feel more premium. 

There’s also a fingerprint sensor on the back of the phone and the USB Type-C port lies on the bottom. Google retained the headphone jack, which rests on the top of the phone. You can see how it would look like comparing to upcoming Pixel 4a below.
