Google Pixel 5a price and launch date have leaked on the web. The Pixel 5a will be the successor to the Pixel 4a launched last year – alongside the Pixel 4a (5G) and Pixel 5. Google confirmed the development of the Pixel 5a and reprimanded a report about its cancellation. The smartphone is rumored to have the same design language as last year’s mid-range Pixel phone. But nevertheless, you should expect some upgrades, mainly on the display, camera and battery fronts.
Citing those familiar with the development, Jon Prosser of technology blog FrontPageTech.com has reported August 26 as the Google Pixel 5a launch date. He said the phone would only be available online or physically in Google Stores after launch.
Google Pixel 5a price (expected)
The price of the Google Pixel 5a is set at $450 (about Rs. 33,400), Prosser has tipped off on his site. The price is significantly higher if we compare it to the Pixel 4a which launched for $349 (Rs. 31,999 in India) for the only 6GB RAM + 128GB storage variant. However, it is lower than the Google Pixel 4a (5G) which came in at $499 (about Rs. 37,000).
In April, Google confirmed that the Pixel 5a will be launched in the US and Japan. However, there’s no word yet on whether the phone would be coming to other markets, including India.
Google Pixel 5a specifications (expected)
Prosser has also leaked some specs of the Google Pixel 5a and these include a 6.4-inch display with a refresh rate of up to 90Hz and Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G SoC – the latter confirms an earlier report and is the same as on the Pixel 4a (5G). and Pixel 5. The phone would also have 6GB of RAM and an IP67-certified build that would be available in a Mostly Black color option. Considering some recently leaked renders, the phone appears to have a similar design to existing Pixel phones and would not match the Pixel 6 models anywhere.
On the front camera, the tipster has claimed that the Pixel 5a would come with the same optics that were available on the Pixel 5. This means there could be a dual camera setup on the rear, with a 12.2- megapixel primary sensor and a 16-megapixel ultra-wide angle lens. There is no information about the selfie camera, although the render posted online shows a single camera cutout on the front.
The Pixel 5a is also said to have a 4,650 mAh battery, which is significantly larger than the 3,140 mAh pack available on the Pixel 4a. The smartphone can also come with a headphone jack.
