Google sets Pixel 4a announcement for Monday

Google’s (GOOG +0.7%, GOOGL +0.7%) reveal of the anticipated budget phone Pixel 4a is set for Monday, Aug. 3.

That comes via an easter-egg teaser page found by 9to5 Google, which features placeholder text until a certain color sequence is unlocked.

Pricing and exact order details are undetermined for now, but likely will be revealed on Monday.

While Google’s Pixel line hasn’t made a significant impact on the high end of smartphones vs. rivals Samsung (OTC:SSNLF) and Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), but its lower-cost phones have provided sales boosts. Now the 4a is set to go head to head against Apple’s iPhone SE (starting at $399).

Apple confirms iPhone 12 delay

During the earnings call, Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) CFO Luca Maestri confirms that the iPhone 12 will be delayed by a few weeks, as was suggested by yesterday’s Qualcomm full-year forecast.

CEO Tim Cook repeatedly touted the strength of the low-cost iPhone SE that launched earlier this year, saying the model is leading to a higher switcher rate than last year.

The iPhone 11 also continued its strong cycle.
