One day after the Pixel 5 and its spec list leaked out, the Pixel 4a 5G has been detailed in a leak of its own.
As expected following Google's teaser of these two new Pixel phones, WinFuture reports that the Pixel 4a 5G is bigger than the Pixel 5, packing a 6.2-inch display compared to the Pixel 5's 6-inch screen. The Pixel 4a 5G's OLED display has a resolution of 2340x1080, but it has a max refresh rate of 60Hz while the Pixel 5's will be 90Hz.
The rear cameras on the Pixel 4a 5G are the same as the Pixel 5, meaning there's a 12.2MP main cam with Sony IMX355 sensor and dual pixel phase detection autofocus plus a 16MP ultra-wide camera with 107-degree field of view. The front camera is the same, too, meaning its an 8MP hole-punch cam.
It's said that the Pixel 4a 5G has a polycarbonate body rather than the aluminum body of the Pixel 5, likely to help get its price down. Inside that polycarbonate shell is said to be a Snapdragon 765G processor and 128GB of built-in storage. There is a little less RAM and slightly smaller battery than the Pixel 5, though, coming in at 6GB and 3800mAh battery.
Rounding out the Pixel 4a 5G's specs is a rear fingerprint reader, stereo speakers, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and Android 11.
Google has already confirmed that the Pixel 4a 5G will cost $499, making it $150 more than the non-5G Pixel 4a. You do get several upgrades for that added cost, though, including a higher-end processor, 5G support, an extra rear camera, a bigger screen, and a much larger battery. So if the higher price tag of the Pixel 4a 5G isn't a deal breaker, this could be a really solid option for folks in the market for an affordable 5G device.
Google is hosting an event on September 30 where we should get our official introduction to both the Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a 5G, so stay tuned for that.
