Google Pixel 5a: Expected specifications and features
Google may have revealed a picture taken on the Pixel 5a as part of a blog on the HDR+ tech. The actual picture has now been removed. The Pixel 5a is expected to come with a dual-camera setup, expected to be something like what we have seen on the Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5.
The Pixel 5a won’t have unlimited free uploads to Google Photos. The phone is also expected to feature an FHD+ OLED panel with HDR support. The company may possibly equip the display to feature a 90Hz refresh rate. The Google Pixel 5a is speculated to come with the follow-up chipset to the Snapdragon 765G, which is found in many mid-range phones. The device is expected to be 5G-ready and come with 6GB RAM and 128GB.
Google Pixel 5a: Launch date and Pricing
According to a report by 9to5Google, the Google smartphone will be launching in the USA and Japan later this year. There has been no word on how much the device will cost. Going by the pricing of the last-gen Pixel 4a, the Pixel 5a phone could be priced at £349/$349 if the device maintains a similar pricing strategy.
