Google Pixel 5a in the news

Pixel 5a 5g Mostly black

Google announces waterproof Pixel 5a with big battery

Phone news ·

As expected, Google has unveiled the Pixel 5a. The device shows great similarities with the Pixel 4a 5G but this time it is waterproof and has a considerably larger battery.

The introduction of the Pixel 5a with 5G for today was already expected. Google is now also officially delivering and unveiling its latest Pixel A phone. What's new about it is the IP67 waterproof housing, a first in the Pixel A series. Also, the Pixel 5a grabs the title for "largest battery in a Pixel phone". Inside, in fact, is a 4680 mAh unit.

As mentioned, there are many similarities with the Pixel 4a 5G altho the screen of this Pixel 5a is slightly larger at 6.34 inches. Still, it's an OLED screen with FHD+ resolution and Always-on functionality. The rear camera consists of a 12.2MP one and 16MP with 107° ultra-wide-angle lens.

Portrait Light and Nite Sight

Like other Pixel phones, the camera of the Pixel 5a features the Portrait Light feature. Using machine learning, you can change light sources afterward. As if you add an extra lightbulb. Familiar camera functions such as Nite Sight with astrophotography are also present.

Google Pixel 5a price

Like the 4a 5G, this 5a is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor with Titan M security chip + 6GB of RAM memory. What's new are the 4 different cases that are sold separately.

Photos and specifications emerge of Google Pixel 5a

Pixel 5a announcement looks imminent

Rumours ·

Wondering what the upcoming Google Pixel 5a looks like? Or what its specifications will be? Then we have good news. Because today, a remarkable amount of information leaked about Google's latest budget Pixel phone; the Pixel 5a.

Pixel A-phones are affordable phones with all the Google knowhow, but in a slightly less expensive housing. For example, the Pixel 4a has a high-quality OLED screen with excellent camera but it is made out of plastic and the processor is not the most powerful. We are likely to see the same thing with the upcoming Pixel 5a. Or rather, that's what we know for sure.

Spare parts of the Pixel 5a

Because thanks to Android Police, we now have the specifications of the Google Pixel 5a. These largely match those of the Pixel 4a 5G. So a fingerprint scanner on the back with a dual camera.

Announcement Pixel 5a

There are also differences. The power button now has a ridge and the battery is much larger. 4680 mAh to be exact. That's the largest battery Google has ever put in a Pixel phone. The source also thinks he knows when Google will announce the Pixel 5a 5G. That should happen on Tuesday, August 17 after which the device should be in stores from August 26.

Google Pixel 5a Voice Steve

Google Pixel 5a leaked, doesn't differ much from Pixel 4a 5G

Rumours ·

Images of the Google Pixel 5a have surfaced, at least that's what Steve Hemmerstoffer claims. But we can't deny the device does look a lot like the current Pixel 4a 5G.

We know Steve Hemmerstoffer better under his alias @onleaks. He turns CAD drawings of yet-to-be-announced phones into beautiful renders, and that's what happened today with Google's Pixel 5a. Google didn't feel like creating a whole new design so it seems and borrowed one from last year.

The screen measures a presumed 6.2 inches with a punch-hole in the top left corner for the single selfie camera. According to Steve, Google is using an OLED panel with FHD+ resolution. No word yet on the refresh rate, possibly it stays at just 60Hz. There is still a small chin at the bottom of the screen but the screen edges are relatively small.

Pixel 5a specifications

At the back, we also detect few changes. A dual camera with a flash on a square module and with a physical fingerprint scanner near it. The housing on the back is most likely made of plastic. A 3.5mm audio jack and stereo speakers are also present, just like on the Pixel 4a 5G. Possibly, the difference is in the camera sensor, processor and battery size.
