Here’s Our First Unofficial Look at Google’s Next Affordable Pixel – The Pixel 5a


The next Pixel might be still a few months away, but thanks to Steve Hemmerstoffer, aka OnLeaks, we have got our first unofficial look at Google’s upcoming mid-ranger, the Pixel 5a following the footsteps of Pixel 4a.

Pixel smartphones have looked awful for quite a long time, but things changed last year when Google took a more modern approach and made them look less ugly, and Google’s next is going to follow that, and it looks appeasingly similar.

According to Hemmerstoffer, the Pixel 5a will measure 156.2 x 73.2 x 8.8 mm, which means that the upcoming Pixel will be a bit taller and thicker than the former.

The Pixel 5a will be featuring a flat 6.2″ OLED FHD+ panel with thin bezels and a forehead but with a considerably bigger chin than the last generation of Pixel smartphones. Moreover, there’s a punch-hole cutout at the top left housing its front-facing camera.

The rear hasn’t changed much too, it still has a fingerprint sensor, but the camera module is a tad bigger, housing two sensors and a LED flash, which we have seen earlier in the Pixel 4a 5G.

The Pixel 5a is expected to be carved out of plastic, considering what we’ve got in the previous affordable Pixels. Further, having a USB C port for charging and a 3.5mm audio jack is still intact with stereo speakers.

As of now, there’s no word out on the internals of the smartphone, or whether it’ll be a 5G supported smartphone or not, or there will be two different variants like the last year. To know all this, we might have to wait for Google’s I/O 2021, which is scheduled to happen in May this year, or till we get some more scoop on Google’s next affordable Pixel. But, it will be interesting to see where Google’s Pixel 5a will end up.
