Google has just introduced the Google Pixel 5a 5G, a minor refresh of the Pixel 4a 5G.
The 5a 5G is built around a slightly larger 6.34-inch OLED panel with 2400×1080 resolution and a standard refresh rate. It features a unibody aluminum design and IP67 rating. Overall, its design is pretty much the same as its predecessor.
The chipset remains the same as well with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G accompanied by 6GB LPPDR4X RAM and 128GB internal storage. Additionally, the optics remain the same with a 12MP main rear camera with a 16MP ultra-wide camera and an 8MP lens upfront. It, however, doesn’t include the spectral+flicker sensor.
The new device though upgrades the battery to a 4680mAh cell, up from 3885mAh. However, the 5a 5G still doesn’t support wireless charging and still supports 18W fast charging.
The Google Pixel 5a comes with a single Mostly Black colorway. It is available for pre-order in Japan and the US from the Google Store for USD 449. It will officially be available starting August 26.
