It is currently clear if that will debut with the Pixel 4a with it or not.

The thing we already know, that the Pixel 4a will feature a 5.81-inch Full HD+ OLED screen. The device will be powered by the Snapdragon 730 SoC and it will also have a 3,080mAh battery. Its camera hardware will be equipped with a single 12.2MP Sony IMX363 sensor at the back and an 8MP Sony IMX355 sensor at the front.
