Google usually launches its mid-range Pixel smartphones at its annual I/O developer conference in May. However last year, the search engine giant announced the Pixel 4a (review) only in August due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Now, we have got a first look at the Pixel 5a, thanks to reliable tipster OnLeaks aka Steve Hemmerstoffer. The upcoming smartphone is an affordable version of the Pixel 5 that debuted last September and also the successor to the Pixel 4a.
Google Pixel 5a renders leaked
As seen in the renders, the Google Pixel 5a looks identical to the Pixel 4a 5G. On the front, it has a punch-hole camera cutout at the top left corner. The rear panel is home to a square-shaped camera module that houses two sensors and a LED flash forming a triangular shape. The fingerprint scanner is located at the centre while the power and volume rocker buttons are on the right side. Continuing the traditions, the Pixel 5a has an accentuated White colour power button.
OnLeaks adds that the Pixel 5a will measure 156.2 x 73.2 x 8.8mm (9.4mm with rear camera bump) in terms of dimensions. The smartphone will reportedly feature a 6.5-inch FHD+ OLED screen which is larger than its predecessor. The display is surrounded by thin bezels and forehead but a significantly larger chin. The renders also reveal a 3.5mm jack at the top and a USB-C port at the bottom.
Apart from this, a lot of specifications on the upcoming Pixel 5a are unknown. We can expect it to come with upgrades compared to last year’s Pixel 4a.
