I'm pretty certain I mentioned this before but I can confirm that Pixel 4a doesn't have Active Edge. First of the Pixel line to leave it behind.

That is a surprise. Active Edge is a staple in the Pixel line and extremely useful. Why would they leave that out?

I think they are adding a dedicated button for assistant.

Not gonna lie, I had to Google "Active Edge." It's the side squeeze feature. I am fine with this, since the power button has replaced it as an assistant button.

That explains why they're doing away with it.

That is a damn shame... I love this feature. But if the $350/128GB price tag is real, I can live without it.

Removing Active Edge, removing Soli. Looks like Google is going back to the drawing board. These were sexy techie additions but not necessities. I'm glad they're focusing on mastering the basics of making a smartphone first.

AE is being dropped from the 4a, no mention of the flagships. Another way to reduce cost on the budget models. I'd be surprised if they drop it from the flagships, tbh. Digital assistant buttons are bad, and relying on wake words in a world of smart speakers is tenuous.
