Google launched Pixel 4a in early August 2020. We have recently found increasing evidence that its successor, the Google Pixel 5a could land in May 2021. The Pixel 4a was quickly followed up by the Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5, but most believe the Pixel 4a followed the Google Pixel 4, so you might get some clues on the Pixel 5a. However, the release date for Google Pixel 5a hasn’t yet officially announced, but the Google IO 2021 dates have, and it’s predicting that the Pixel 5a will be there. Point to be noted that Google IO 2021 (online-only event) will run from 18th May to 20th May 2021. An earlier leak said the Google Pixel 5a will launch on 11th June.
The search giant has also confirmed that the Pixel 5a 5G is coming to the US and Japan, but didn’t provide more details about its worldwide availability. The Google Pixel 3a was the first mid-range smartphone in the series and launched at $399, but the Pixel 4a released with a lower price at $349. A supposedly official document listed the Pixel 5a by name, along with codenames for its future Pixel phones including the Google Pixel 6 and 6 XL. An earlier rumor predicted the Google Pixel 5a will be near-identical to the Pixel 4a 5G with a similar design, screen specs, and cameras. It might have the Snapdragon 780G chipset that’s made its debut in the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G. This is the successor to the Snapdragon 765G in the Pixel 4a 5G and offers up to 40% CPU performance improvement.
The leak also said that one of the rear camera lenses on the phone will be an Ultra-wide f/2.2 lens. We are hopeful that the Pixel 5a will be presented with a zoom and ultrawide lens. Another leak suggested the Pixel 4a 5G will define how viable the mid-range 5G phone is in a market that seems happy enough with 4G LTE cheap phones, we are hoping the Pixel 5a with 5G, as a standard feature. it might be dependent on whether 2021 phones that connect to the advanced networks come any cheaper, given the price hike that this year’s 5G-capable phones experienced. It is noteworthy that many budget smartphones have 4,000mAh or larger batteries. So, we are expecting the mid-range Pixel 5a will also feature a handsome amount of battery size and 128GB of storage to get involved in the cheaper smartphone market competition.
