The subsequent Google telephone is, unsurprisingly, the Pixel 5a. Though we is likely to be nonetheless months away from its official introduction, the first-look render photographs of the upcoming price range Pixel are already on the web. Famous tipster Steve Hemmerstoffer, aka OnLeaks, has simply shared the primary renders of the Pixel 5a, and… it seems extremely acquainted.
As you possibly can see within the photographs beneath (and above), the Pixel 5a seems, nicely, just like the Pixel 4a 5G. In Steve’s phrases, “the Pixel 5a is the precise copy of the Pixel 4a 5G, which itself is “nothing however a bigger Pixel 5.”

The upcoming price range Pixel reportedly sports activities a “unibody (seemingly plastic made) rear panel” and has a dimension of 156.2 x 73.2 x 8.8mm (9.4mm with the digicam bump). That makes it simply 2.3mm taller, 0.8mm narrower, and 0.6mm thicker than the Pixel 4a 5G. The one noticeable aesthetic distinction between the 2 units is the ability button. The Pixel 5a will get a ridged energy button design.
The minor tweaks to the telephone’s dimension, nonetheless, do not appear to have an effect on the show dimension. The Pixel 5a nonetheless sports activities a flat 6.2-inch OLED FHD+ show, with a punch-hole cutout on the highest left nook. The show bezels are apparently the identical sized as nicely, with symmetric bezels on three sides and a comparatively thicker chin.
The rear digicam module can be of an identical form and dimension and is positioned on the highest left nook. It homes a dual-lens setup together with an LED flash and an unknown sensor which may very well be a PDAF (Section Detection Autofocus). That is the “similar configuration” discovered on the Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5. So we is likely to be taking a look at a 12.2-megapixel main digicam and a 16-megapixel ultrawide lens. As such, the Pixel 5a also needs to get an 8-megapixel front-facing digicam. Google might have achieved higher by providing upgraded picture sensors with the brand new Pixel.
The Pixel 5a additionally will get a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, a 3.5mm headphone jack, a USB Kind-C port, and stereo audio system. However none of that distinguishes the telephone aesthetically from the Pixel 4a 5G. Google’s seemingly making an attempt to decrease the manufacturing value of the telephone with this bizarre, uncommon method. Hopefully, the corporate will supply extra selections when it comes to shade choices.
Not one of the Pixel telephones launched in 2020 arrived in additional than two shade variants. Google cited the COVID-19 pandemic-related manufacturing points for the shortage of shade alternative. That ought to now not be the case this 12 months. We are going to seemingly get to listen to extra in regards to the Pixel 5a within the coming weeks as we inch in the direction of its official introduction. Google might announce the telephone within the first half of this 12 months.
