Google Pixel 5A release date could be set in August, claims report

The report also claims that the Pixel 5A will be launching and releasing in August. The predecessor Pixel 4a was announced on Aug. 3 and it went on sale on Aug. 20 in multiple markets. Previous reports have claimed that will be releasing the Pixel 5a in limited markets such as the U.S. and Japan.

Reports have claimed that the Pixel 5a may not be a major upgrade over the Pixel 4a 5G. It is speculated that the new handset will be fueled by the Snapdragon 76 chipset, which was previously seen on the Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5 smartphones. The company is unlikely to release a 4G edition of the Pixel 5a.
