Google Pixel 5a – Here’s our first look at 2021’s budget Pixel
The renders were shared by OnLeaks
In August last year, Google launched the Pixel 4a which was the budget Pixel of last year priced at just $349. The phone offered a clean Android experience, an OLED panel with a hole-punch cutout, the same camera sensor as on the Pixel 4, and more. Later, we got the Pixel 4a 5G which offered dual cameras, a 5G chipset, and a bigger battery for $499. Well today, we got to know how the Google Pixel 5a will look like as the early renders of the phone are now here, thanks to OnLeaks. These renders suggest that Google decided to keep the overall design the same as last year so only the internals are going to be new.
Google Pixel 5a has a dual-camera setup on the rear and the design of the camera module is the same as in the case of Pixel 4a 5G. The fingerprint scanner is positioned on the rear as well and the phone does have a 3.5mm headphone jack that is placed on the top. There are stereo speakers so while the primary speaker is placed alongside the Type-C port on the bottom, the second speaker is there on the front under the earpiece.
The display on the front has a single hole-punch cutout on the top left corner and as per OnLeaks, it is a 6.2-inch Full-HD+ OLED panel. So apart from the design, the display size is also the same as Pixel 4a 5G. The power button and the volume rockers are placed on the right side and as always, the power button gets a special paint job.
The dimensions are 156.2 x 73.2 x 8.8mm (9.4mm including the camera bump).
Well, looking at these early renders, it seems like there isn’t going to be anything new in terms of the design and maybe most of the specs are going to be the same as Pixel 4a 5G, such as the cameras, screen, battery, etc. So it will all come down to the chipset that Google has chosen and the price at which the Pixel 5a is launching.
