Besides the Google Pixel 5, the company also released the Google Pixel 4a 5G. As the name implies, the phone is the 5G variant of the previous Pixel 4a, which now works on sub-6 and in some markets mmWave. But we should also mention that it’s also larger.
The Google Pixel 4a 5G features a 6.2-inch OLED screen. This is a bit smaller than the 4 XL screen (6.3-inch). But we only have a standard 60Hz refresh rate.
Moreover, the Google Pixel 4a 5G uses the same Snapdragon 765G as the Pixel 5. However, the phone has 6GB of RAM instead of 8GB. But the company kept the storage unchanged at 128GB.
The camera module is identical to that of the Pixel 5. The latter has a 12.2 MP main cam coupled with a 16MP ultra-wide lens. But our protagonist has a single camera of 12.2 MP module. The punch-hole hosts an 8MP selfie camera.
Interestingly, the phone comes with a 3.5mm headphone jack, which is absent on the Pixel 5.
But the Google Pixel 4a 5G yields the Pixel 5 in terms of battery. It comes with a smaller 3,885mAh. The battery supports an 18W charging via the USB port. No wireless charging is supported.
Unlike the Pixel 5, the Google Pixel 4a 5G is made of polycarbonate and is not dust or water resistant. There is a back-mounted fingerprint reader.
In terms of pricing, the Google Pixel 4a 5G costs $500/€500/£500. The pre-orders will start on November 5 and go on sale November 19.
