We got our hands-on with the latest device from Google, the Pixel 5a 5G. It has the same design as the Pixel 4a 5G, which was released in September of last year. In truth, not only the design but also the majority of the specifications haven’t changed. The new phone has only a few improvements, but it is now a little less expensive thanks to Google’s efforts. In comparison to the Pixel 4a 5G, the Pixel 5a 5G has a slightly larger display, a dust, and water resistance rating, and a substantially larger battery. While the Pixel 5a comes with a charging cable, Google has apparently confirmed that the Pixel 6 series would not include one.
Here is our hands-on video of the Pixel 5a 5G,
The Pixel 5a 5G runs Android 11 and has a 6.34-inch full-HD+ (1,080×2,400 pixels) OLED display with a 60Hz refresh rate and a 20:9 aspect ratio with a 60Hz refresh rate. It uses the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G SoC, which is combined with an Adreno 620 GPU. 6GB of LPDDR4x RAM and 128GB of storage are included
. The device sports the same dual-rear camera arrangement as the Pixel 4a 5G in terms of images and movies, with a 12.2-megapixel primary sensor with an f/1.7 lens and a 16-megapixel sensor with an f/2.2 ultra-wide-angle lens.The same 8-megapixel selfie camera with an f/2.0 aperture is housed in a hole-punch cutout in the top left corner of the display on the front. Dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v5.0, NFC, GPS, a 3.5mm headphone socket, and a USB Type-C connector are among the Pixel 5a 5G’s connectivity choices.
The phone has a 4,680mAh battery that supports 18W rapid charging. The battery is larger than the 3,885mAh capacity of the Pixel 4a 5G. The Pixel 5a 5G is also water and dust resistant to IP67 standards.
We would like to thank Google for sending over the device to us, which helped us provide you a look at the device before it is available for retail at $449.
