In 2015s Pixel 5 was something of a let-down for most fans of Googles phones, given that it chose a budget SoC while keeping flagship-level cost, and the release of the Galaxy S20 FE didnt assist matters. Were now getting our first appearance at a budget variation anticipated to introduce in a couple of months, and … it looks familiar.
Steve Hemmerstoffer, much better referred to as OnLeaks, has actually released a purported render image of the Pixel 5a. No other design was discussed in the leak, so its unclear if Google is going with a single A gadget this year (like in 2015s Pixel 5), or if this is among two phones. Google offered the Pixel 3a in routine and XL sizes, and while there were likewise 2 designs in 2020, the bigger phone had somewhat better hardware and was sold as the Pixel 4a 5G.
The leaked phone measures 156.2 x 73.2 x 8.8 mm, making it nearly similar in size to the Pixel 4a 5G, 9.1 mm taller than the regular Pixel 4, and 4.2 mm much shorter than the Pixel 4 XL. It also looks nearly identical to the Pixel 4a 5G, down to the left-aligned electronic camera cutout, 6.2-inch screen, and dual electronic cameras. Theres also a headphone jack.
Today, its hard to tell how this differs from the Pixel 4a 5G, however we dont understand anything about the internal hardware or prices yet. Fans of the smaller Pixel phones will absolutely be grumbling if this is the only A-series Pixel we get this year.
