The first renders of the Google Pixel 5a created by the renowned tipster Steve Hemmerstoffer thanks to leaks from unspecified sources, do not invite optimism that the firm responsible for Android will dazzle the staff with its own brand mobiles as it happened in the first generations.
Google Pixel 5a first look
The images show a terminal traced to the Pixel 4a 5G presented last year together with the Pixel 5. In dimensions of 156.2 x 73.2 x 8.8 mm, its screen will be a 6.2 inch P-OLED with FHD + resolution.
We see a main camera system in a dedicated square module imposing itself as a design trend, with two sensors, flash and a phase detection autofocus sensor. It is not known if Google will improve the resolution of the previous sensors of 12.2 MP and the wide angle of 8 MP. The front selfie camera is located in a perforated hole in the screen in the upper left corner.
We don’t know its resolution either, although Google has already shown the Pixel’s ability to take good photos with low-resolution sensors. Other features to mention are the stereo speakers, a 3.5mm headphone jack which is already becoming a rare sight on smartphones and a rear fingerprint sensor that is also being abandoned in favor of those installed under the screen, much more comfortable and convenient.
And so far we can read because the leak does not offer more information. It is certain that the Google Pixel 5a will have at least 6 Gbytes of RAM and 128 Gbytes of internal storage capacity. Its SoC engine is unknown and whether the company will choose to equip something more powerful than Snapdragon 765G with octa-core CPU and Adreno 620 GPU from the Pixel 4a. It is certain that the chosen option will support 5G mobile networks in any case. We assume that Google will equip the terminal with a battery with a capacity greater than the discrete 3,800 mAh.
No, this Google Pixel 5a is not enthusiastic (a design tracing of the model it will replace) unless the price line drops from those official $ 499, which in Spain translates to 520 euros. Many euros, no matter how much Google excels in other sections such as software updates, undoubtedly the best Android manufacturer in this section. We miss the first generations of Pixels, a mid-range with very good prices and great support. Pixel 6 aims better than this 5a. We will see.
