Almost a year after they released the Pixel 4a with 5G, Google is back with the successor – Pixel 5a 5G.
The Google Pixel 5a 5G comes in a new unibody aluminum design in an all-new ‘Mostly Black’ body colour with a slightly green hue. The phone has an IP67 dust and water-resistant rating which means it is capable of lasting in 1m depth of freshwater for 30 minutes. The phone’s body build is somewhat identical to its predecessor – the Pixel 4a with 5G.
The Pixel 5a features a 6.34″ OLED display with a 2400 x 1080 pixels resolution and 60Hz refresh rate. Inside the Pixel phone is the Snapdragon 765G with 6GB LPDDR4X memory and 128GB storage.
Camera-wise, there is a dual-camera setup at the back consisting of a 12MP f/1.7 main sensor and a 16MP f/2.2 ultra-wide sensor. At the front, there is a punch-hole in the display that houses an 8MP f/2.0 selfie camera.
The battery department is arguably where you’ll see the biggest change between the Pixel 4a and the Pixel 5a. The new Pixel 5a packs a 4,680 mAh battery capacity which is 795 mAh bigger than what is available on the Pixel 4a. Sadly, the Pixel 5a does not support wireless charging and comes with an 18W fast wired charger instead.
The Pixel 5a with 5G is available for pre-order starting on August 17 from the Google store in both the United States and Japan. In the United States, the phone is priced at $449 with shipping expected to start on August 26.
