Google has made the new Pixel 5a official, offering a good handful of attributes inherited from the 4a 5G model of 2020 and adjusting the protection against water to make it attractive in a market rife with Chinese brands and custom Android versions.
Specifically, we are talking about a 4a 5G model updated in size, cameras and battery. Almost a 4a XL. We have a 6.34-inch OLED panel and FullHD + resolution powered by the 4680 mAh battery that gives life to this team governed by a Snapdragon 765 5G processor, the same one used by the Pixel 5.

In the case of cameras, this mid-range edition inherits the dual 12MP and ultrawide 16MP central lens system from the Pixel 5 model but does not reach the 8GB of RAM that Google’s flagship maintains.
The device, which has a Dual SIM tray, adds the Titan M chip to ensure biometrics and complements the multimedia experience of stereo speakers with a headphone port.
A snack before the Pixel 6
This model refreshes Google’s proposal in the mobile sector and will be available from the Google Store from August 26 at $ 449.
Despite the impasses produced by the shortage of processors, the Mountain View firm has launched this device. Earlier this year, false rumours circulated that the Pixel 5A had been cancelled entirely due to limitations.
“COVID has created some challenges for the global supply chain, particularly silicon shortages,” Brian Rakowski, Pixel’s vice president of product management, said at a news conference last week. “As a result, we will limit our deployment to select channels.”
