When the rumor mill claimed that the Google Pixel 5a had been canceled because of the global chip shortage, Google debunked the rumor by saying that it will be debuting around the same time frame as the Pixel 4a. Now, a fresh report by Bloomberg claims that the Pixel 5A will be releasing in August.
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 Google 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 765G 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.
The CAD renders of the Pixel 5a that appeared earlier this year revealed that it will be sporting a 6.2-inch OLED screen with a punch-hole design. The device is expected to feature a squarish module for its LED flash-assisted dual-camera setup. It is also expected to feature a traditional fingerprint scanner.
In related news, Google is expected to launch the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro smartphones in October this year. These phones are rumored to be driven by Google’s custom-made chip that may offer performance similar to Snapdragon 870. The Pixel Watch is also expected to go official alongside the Pixel 6 series.
