Google is back after a year with another affordable Pixel smartphone, the Pixel 5a, the successor to 2020’s Pixel 4a. It’s pretty much similar to last year’s Pixel 4a 5G and the Pixel 5.

The Pixel 5a comes in a unibody aluminium chassis in a new ‘Mostly Black’ colour. The design is reminiscent of previous generation Pixels. However, the new ‘Mostly Black’ isn’t black per se but has a little greenish hue.
