Google recently released its new budget smartphone on August 3, which was the Google Pixel 4a. Just a day after, the tech giant confirmed that they would be launching the new Pixel 4a(5G) and Pixel 5 later this year. With the launch of Pixel 4a, users were expecting Google to launch a 5G ready phone, but the feature was not available in that model. It is now clear that Google was adding the 5G connectivity to the next range of their phones.
Although Pixel 4a (5G) would remain almost the same in terms of configuration, the only addition to it will be the support for 5G technology and a new chipset. Google has confirmed that the 5G ready Pixel 4a would launch at a price tag of $499, and the devices will initially launch in the US, Australia, the UK, Germany, Canada, France, Japan, Taiwan, and Ireland. The rest of the countries will see the launch as soon as 5G services are offered there. When it comes to Pixel 5, there are a lot of leaks about the specs.
The phone is said to have a Snapdragon 765G chipset, which is 5G ready and has also been used in other smartphones like OnePlus Nord and LG velvet. The phone will also have a dual-camera setup, which is very different from the triple or quad camera setup that other companies offer. However, Google’s camera software provides the same kind of image quality after processing as the other premium mid-range phones. The Pixel 4a (5G) would be getting the same camera sensor as Pixel 4a, and Pixel 5 will get a new camera software, which will provide much better and clear pictures when compared to premium flagships.
The Pixel 5 will feature a 5.8-inch screen, and a higher version of the same can also have a 6.67-inch screen, which will be announced in the future. It is also expected that Pixel 5 would have a 120Hz refresh rate for the screen, which would lead to a bigger battery in the phone. As per the details, the phone could be launched in about two months.
