- Renders supposedly showing the unannounced Google Pixel 5a have hit the internet.
- The phone looks almost identical to the previous Pixel 4a 5G.
- It is not known when this phone will be released.
Google launched the Pixel 5 smartphone in fall 2020, so we’ve been wondering if a Pixel 5a might be in the works. Tonight, well-known internet device leaker Steve “OnLeaks” Hemmerstoffer posted information on his sources’ phone, along with images that he claimed show renderings of the Google Pixel 5a.
The renders show a phone that looks almost exactly like the previous Pixel 4a 5G in terms of design and size. The post claims that it will have a 6.2-inch flat FHD + OLED display. Its perforated front camera is placed in the upper left corner. The bezels are quite slim but not as thin as high-end smartphones. See more pictures below.
The phone may still have some back-up features that some users may or may not like. History claims that it will have a 3.5mm headphone jack and a rear fingerprint sensor. It will reportedly have stereo speakers too.
The leaked renderings of the Pixel 5a also show a bump on the square rear camera with two unknown sensors, along with a flash. There is also something else to the bump that the insider claims is probably a Phase detection autofocus sensor (PDAF).
There are no details on the other important hardware specs, including the phone’s processor, RAM, storage, and battery size.
It is also unknown when the Pixel 5a will launch. Considering that the Pixel 4a was announced in August 2020 and that the 5G version was launched in October 2020, we may have to wait at least a few months for this new Google Pixel phone to hit the market.
