Google probably wants to officially present its new mid-range smartphone Google Pixel 5a 5G for the first time today. However, the device was shown in advance by a Japanese network operator, so it is clear that the device is amazingly similar to its predecessor.
The Pixel 5a release date is most likely on August 17th, 2021. In addition to the first leaks due to components that were sent to repair workshops before the market launch in the last few days, the Japanese provider Softbank has already published a first picture of the device on its Twitter channel.
In the meantime, the entry has been removed, as has the network operator’s apparently short-term available shop page. However, we did manage to get hold of an official marketing picture of the Google Pixel 5a 5G showing the device with a dark green plastic case.
The Pixel 5a 5G will therefore be visually reminiscent of its predecessor, although it should be noted that Google will obviously not offer two versions of different sizes in this generation of models. Instead, one relies on a single edition, which is likely to be offered with a 6.7-inch display with a punch-hole camera.
Since this is a mid-range smartphone, the case is made of plastic rather than metal. A relatively wide “chin” can also be seen on the front at the lower end of the display. On the back, there are two cameras, which presumably offer 12 and 16 megapixels respectively and are intended for normal and ultra-wide-angle shots.
Little is known about the other technical data. On Pixel 5a release date, you will get more details like Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G Octacore SoC with integrated 5G modem is used as in the Pixel 5. In addition, the parts leaks revealed that a 4680mAh battery is being installed, which is, therefore, larger than all other electricity storage devices installed by Google in its smartphones so far.
