A well-known good has published renders of a device that we no longer knew was still under development. The images of the alleged Google Pixel 5a are very reminiscent of previous Pixel smartphones.
Read on after the ad.
Rumor: these are the first Google Pixel 5a renders
The so-called renders – images created with a computer and based on blueprints – have appeared on Voice and are posted by Steve Hemmerstoffer. In terms of design, the Pixel 5a will be a mix of the Google Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a 5G. The device has a plastic housing and measures 156.2 by 73.2 by 8.8 millimeters. Only on the camera island is the 5a slightly thicker: 9.4 millimeters.
According to Hemmerstoffer, the screen diagonal is 6.2 inches and it is a flat OLED display. That has a full HD resolution and resembles the Pixel 4a 5G in everything, for example in terms of screen edges. The two rear cameras are housed in the distinctive square camera island, but the exact details are still unknown.
The source does mention that it is probably a sensor with PDAF, in other words phase detection autofocus, allowing you to focus faster and better during photo shooting. The front camera is hidden in a small hole in the top left corner of the screen.
The physical fingerprint scanner can be found at the back and you can listen to music via the stereo speakers or via wired headphones. The upcoming Pixel 5a simply has a headphone jack.
Google Pixel 5a unveiling unknown
When Google has plans to unveil the Pixel 5a is still the question, because rumors about that device have been circulating for some time. In May we expect some announcements about Google I / O. That will certainly take place online again this year and is a big conference for developers. The tech giant often uses that event for announcements in the area of software and hardware.
It is also possible that the presentation of the 5a is delayed. For example, the direct predecessor in the form of the Google Pixel 4a was presented at the beginning of August 2020. All in all, there is still enough mystery surrounding this upcoming aircraft. We also expect the Google Pixel 6 to be the successor to the current Pixel 5 later this year.
