Believe it or not Google has released a single internal smartphone in the past 11 months Pixel 4a is without question one of the best mid-range Android soldiers out there for buyers with cash issues. It’s safe to say that a Snapdragon 730 device isn’t exactly ideal for most power users.
Fortunately, the search giant is almost certainly preparing to unveil not just one but two brand new phones in less than a week. Unfortunately, the Pixels 5 and 4a (5G) also don̵
7;t expect a high-end Snapdragon 865 or 865+ SoC, which instead opts for the undoubtedly most popular upper mid-end chipset in the world, which has the fastest wireless networks on the market supported.
Naturally, Samsung, LG and Motorola has recently proven that Snapdragon 765 devices can be more than reasonably powerful and at an irresistible price point, which Google guarantees for the not-too-distant future. Unfortunately, that future could be a little further away than you probably expected as far as one of the two upcoming 5G-enabled pixels is concerned.
Who is ready to wait for the Pixel 4a 5G until November … or 2021?
Nobody? Absolutely nobody? Not a single soul in the universe? How about it never That doesn’t sound very pleasant, but according to the productive (although not always reliable) Twitter leaker Jon Prosser, the “clear white” version of the midsize Google Pixel 4a (5G), might not come out until next year … or never.
In fact, Prosser believes it is “more likely” that the company will cancel this particular model altogether and exclusively release the 5G-enabled Pixel 4a in “Just Black” on November 19th. This wouldn’t be a particularly impressive turnaround time for a handset recommended to be both official and pre-orderable on September 30th, but hey, at least some early adopters could get their units before Thanksgiving.
Regardless of what the name suggests, keep in mind that the Pixel 4a 5G is to be rumored have more in common with the Pixel 5 5G than with the 4G LTE-only 4a. It’s the Snapdragon 765 processor mentioned above, as well as a double rear camera system and a large battery that can cover the energy consumption of the additional 5G connectivity.
Strangely enough the The Pixel 4a 5G is expected to come with a 6.2-inch screen larger than the 6-inch Pixel 5 and a slightly smaller 3,800 mAh cell. The secondary rear gunner should also be a less impressive 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens. A downgrade from 8 to 6 GB of RAM should also help keep the retail price at the affordable $ 499 level.
The Pixel 5 5G is coming much earlier
Like its bigger and cheaper brother, the 5G is capable Google Pixel 5 is slated to be pre-ordered the day it is announced. Instead of keeping you waiting for months, this bad boy should start shipping as early as October 15th.
That’s … not bad for the troubled times we live in, and better yet, the Pixel 5 appears to be released in a total of two colors at once. This slim green shade, by the way recently leaked in an official looking promo image could be marketed as “Subtle Sage” According to Prosser, who definitely fits Google’s MO when it comes to such things, he’s following in the footsteps of the “Oh So Orange” Pixel 4, “Purple-ish” Pixel 3a, or “Kinda Blue” Pixel 2.
“Confirmed” costs almost surprisingly a lot (at least by Google standards) US $ 700 in a 128 GB storage variant with a generous 8 GB storage capacity, Just Black and Subtle Sage Pixel 5 may or may not rock back a premium glass combined with a metal frame.
It’s more than respectable The data sheet also includes a 16-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens for a 12.2-megapixel rearview camera, as well as a 4,080 mAh battery with support for fast charging, wireless and reverse wireless charging, and a 90 Hz OLED display with a resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels, IP68 water and dust resistance, stereo speakers and a traditional fingerprint scanner on the back.
