Pixel 5a components supposedly appear as we get closer to a release


If you thought we were done with phone launches for awhile, you would be sorely mistaken. According to a new leak from Max Weinbach with Android Police, Google is set to announce the Pixel 5a on August 17th. But it doesn’t stop there, as Weinbach has provided everyone with a look at the hardware that is arriving with the device.

Instead of just simply being “hands-on” with the phone, Weinbach’s source provided images of Pixel 5a components. These are currently being shipped out to various phone repair locations ahead of the impending release.

According to these images, we can see that the Pixel 5a really does not look all that different from the Pixel 4a and Pixel 4a 5G. According to the source, the “back feels a little more rubbery than the hard plastic of the previous-generation handset”. This perhaps means that Google has switched up the materials used, or at least the finish.

Along with the hands-on images and potential announcement date, Weinbach also confirmed that the Pixel 5a will include a 4,680mAh battery. This will be the largest battery every used in a Pixel. And given that the Pixel “a” series is notorious for excellent battery life, this could be the best budget phone of the year.

Supposedly the Pixel 5a will be announced on August 17th, with a rumored release date of August 26th, and will be priced around $450. All of this falls in line with a leak provided by Jon Prosser at the beginning of the month.

According to Prosser, the Pixel 5a will sport a 6.4-inch, 90Hz, display along with the Snapdragon 765G and 6GB of RAM. It’s also likely that Google will be re-using the same camera system from the Pixel 5, which is not all that surprising since the “big” camera upgrade is coming with the Pixel 6 series.

As a reminder, the Pixel 5a, whenever it arrives, will only be released in the US and Japan. But it also won’t be made available in your brick-and-mortar stores, as it’s likely to only be available online.
