Pixel 4a, Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5 will be the 3 Google phones for 2020, according to a recent leak.
The Google Pixel 4 XL may be the last of its kind: the portal 9to5Google has discovered in the code of one of the Google apps that the line of Pixel series smartphones would consist of three models in total: they would be the Pixel 4a, Pixel 4a (5G) and Pixel 5. No XL models.
Of them, it has been discovered that they would arrive based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 platforms in the case of the Pixel 4a, and Snapdragon 765G in the case of the Pixel 4a (5G) and Pixel 5. If so, this would be the first generation of phones Pixel since its launch in 2016 to arrive formed by a single variant in terms of size.
There will be no Pixel 5 XL this year
The leak in question refers to the code names of two Google devices based on the Snapdragon 765G platform. They are « redfin » and « bramble », two models that will land in the upper-middle range segment, and that according to the code of the Google search engine app, would arrive under the names of Google Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5 respectively, and not under the Pixel 5 and Pixel 5 XL titles as expected from the start.
Not know what will be the concrete differences between the Pixel 4a 5G and the Pixel 5, after all, we are talking about two terminals based on the same mobile platform.
