Just like the Pixel 4 before it and the Pixel 3, the Pixel 5 will also be getting a more affordable variant which will launch as the Pixel 5a (no 5G). The renders show that the phone shares a striking resemblance to the Pixel 4a 5G.
The renders were posted on Voice by Steve Hemmerstoffer who is best known by the moniker OneLeaks. The leaker has given us not only our first look at Google’s next budget Pixel phone but also some details.
The Pixel 5a is shown as having a flat display with a punch hole at the top left corner for a camera. On the back, it has a squircle-shaped camera module with two sensors and an LED flash. There is also a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner on the device.
Google will keep the audio jack on the Pixel 5a and the image above shows it will reside at the top. The bottom of the phone is home to the USB-C port which is flanked on each side by a slit. On the right-hand side is a textured power button that is painted white and below it is a volume rocker.
The Pixel 5a is said to have a 6.2-inch FHD+ OLED display just like the Pixel 4a 5G but there is no mention of it having a high refresh rate. The back of the phone is said to be made of plastic which isn’t surprising considering it will be Google’s most affordable phone this year.
The renders show the phone in black but we hope Google releases it in more colors. The Pixel 4a was announced in Just Black and Barely Blue while its 5G variant is sold in only one color – Just Black. The Pixel 5’s dimensions are given as 156.2 x 73.2 x 8.8 mm (9.4mm when you add the camera bump).
There is no news of a release date too but more details should surface in the coming weeks.
