WILL THEY WON'T THEY?
The Pixel 5a 5G even coming to market was a big question mark. But things have really changed in the space of just a few days.
GOOGLE CONFIRMS IT'S COMING
Google has confirmed that the Pixel 5a 5G is set to hit shelves around the same time as the Pixel 4a. That would put the official launch sometime in August 2021.
RECYCLED DESIGN AND HARDWARE
Leaked renders suggest that the Pixel 4a 5G design is getting recycled again for the Pixel 5a. Is this a bad thing? Well, it’s sensible at the very least.
The only upside to this nearby launch is that Google has only confirmed the US and Japan as markets for the Pixel 5a.
5G AND SPECS CONUNDRUM
it’s less clear if this mid-ranger may utilize the Snapdragon 690 or the 768G. Some will undoubtedly suggest the 765G found in the Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a 5G will be used.
At this stage, we’re simply not sure. No evidence has been forthcoming from Google either — naturally.
