Google’s new smartphone, Pixel 5a, is rumored to launch next week and some sources have leaked certain features and prices of the phone. This phone will be quite similar to the Google Pixel 4a 5G that launched but includes some new updates and additions that we will talk about later.
The Google Pixel 5a will have 5G network accessibility. The phone has had a number of leaks which we will talk about. One rumor was the launch date of the phone where sources confirmed that the phone will launch in August similar to Google’s latest phone, Pixel 4a 5G that launched in August 2020. But now it is confirmed that the phone will launch in a few weeks after the FCC listing has the phone in its list.
The new Pixel 5a 5G’s design will be quite similar to the Google Pixel 4a 5G with similar hardware and software and thus they would look and function quite similar. We can even say that the Google 5a 5G can be a rebranded version of the Google Pixel 4a 5G with similar specs and features. Google did confirm the launch of the phone saying it will only be available in Japan and the United States and will launch only in these two countries. But with other rumors, this is not completely true.
Talking about the phone, its launch will be very soon as it has been listed in the FCC listing as spotted by a Twitter user with the username cstark27. He saw a total of 3 models for the Google Pixel 5 a 5G; this includes the G1F8F, G4S1M, and GR0M2. All these models are different versions of the same Google Pixel 5a 5G. All three models are similar to each other and have the same features and specs. But one model out of the three is targeted to launch in North America as mentioned in the FCC listing and will be available in a few weeks. While the other models listed are explicitly listed to launch all over the world and not just Japan and United America.
Earlier the brand focused on creating budget phones for its customers and providing the best phones with minimum budget thus it launched its first phone that became quite popular which was the Google Pixel 3a and the Pixel 3a XL. Later it moved from this approach and thus decided on launching premium smartphones with the best features and specs. This approach focuses on providing the best experiences and performance to the users. Thus it launched two more smartphones out of which one was a 5G phone. Google earlier wanted to launch a single 5G phone but now has launched more than one 5G phone due to advancements and craze in users for having 5G phones.
The new Pixel 5 a 5G will be 156.2 x 73.2 x 8.8 mm in dimensions similar to the old Google Pixel 4 a 5G. Will have a plastic back which is often a polycarbonate back which is quite sturdy and durable. Will have a square camera with a dual rear camera and also have a fingerprint scanner. It will have a punch-hole camera in the front with a 3.5 mm audio jack and good-quality stereo speakers. The phone will have a 6.2-inch FHD + OLED display. It will include the Snapdragon 765 SoC processor.
