Implied ‘Pixel 5a’ renders propose Google’s next phone is essentially the Pixel 4a 5G
Google’s next phone is obviously a “Pixel 5a,” and leaked renders today recommend that the mid-ranger will be almost indistinguishable from the Pixel 4a 5G.
OnLeaks (Steve Hemmerstoffer) on Voice today has renders of what’s being known as the “Pixel 5a.” The dimensions (156.2 x 73.2 x 8.8mm) are almost indistinguishable from the Pixel 4a 5G, however it’s 2.3mm taller, .8mm narrower, and .6mm thicker. A “unibody (likely plastic made) rear panel” is supposed to be being used, with the Pixel 3a and 4a both deciding on plastic as opposed to glass. The solitary apparent distinction seems to be a ridged power button design.
Regardless of changes to the physical body, it additionally has a 6.2-inch OLED FHD+ display with a thicker bottom bezel breaking the uniformity of the other three sides. There keeps on being a hole-punch front-facing camera in the top-left corner.
The camera system is an eminent improvement over the Pixel 4a by leaping to a dual-lens setup, however — again — it’s supposed to be “same configuration as seen on the Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5” (12.2MP dual-pixel and 16 MP ultrawide). Other shared specs as a-series phone incorporate the 3.5mm headphone jack and rear Pixel Imprint fingerprint sensor. There are two patterns for a speaker and microphone flanking the USB-C port.
This “Pixel 5a,” if that ends up being the final marketing/launch name, would have an extraordinarily staid design. Such a methodology would, in theory, help bring down Google’s production costs, with the overarching objective of the a-line to make a moderate entry gadget.
The present leak offers no specifications or insight into what processor Google will use to power the Pixel 5a, however 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage is a sure thing. A central issue is whether this gadget will feature 5G connectivity given the huge push in 2020.
As far as launch, the first half of this current year is a sure thing as a year ago’s phone — notwithstanding the pandemic and production disturbances — would have likely been declared in May, much the same as 2019’s Pixel 3a.
