Last year, Google announced two mid-range smartphones: the Pixel 4a that launched in August and its 5G variant, the Pixel 4a 5G, which followed a month later.
Now it appears that Google is working on the Pixel 5a, a mid-range variant of the Pixel 5.
The information comes from the leak source @OnLeaks, which has allowed us to get a first look at the Pixel 5a along with some of its specifications. As you can see, the Pixel 5a looks like the Pixel 4a 5G, and by extension, the Pixel 5.
The Pixel 5a will likely feature a plastic body similar to its predecessors. The device measures 156.2 x 73.2 x 8.8mm (9.4mm with the camera bulge), which is close to the dimensions of the Pixel 4a 5G (153.9 x 74 x 8.2mm ).
At the front, it will feature a 6.2 ″ flat OLED panel with slim side frames and a hole for the front camera module. We don’t know if the screen will offer a high refresh rate or a maximum of 60 Hz like the Pixel 4a 5G.
On the back, we can see a square camera module, a fingerprint reader and the Google logo. According to the source, the dual-camera setup has not changed from the Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5, which means that Google could keep the same image sensors.
Lastly, the Pixel 5a is expected to keep the 3.5mm audio jack as well as stereo speakers.
Details about the chip, battery capacity, other hardware, and release date are unknown for now. However, based on previous Pixel releases, there will likely be more leaks ahead of the actual release.
