Review Google Pixel 5a 5G – Google has finally unveiled the Pixel 5A 5G phone after several leaks surfaced recently. The device was apparently first revealed in April, but it’s just a rumor.
The Google Pixel 5A 5G comes with several improvements over the Pixel 4A 5G. Some of these upgrades include a slightly larger screen, a new battery, and an IP67 water resistance rating.
The Pixel 5A features a 6.34-inch OLED display with Full HD+ resolution and 60Hz refresh rate support. There is no support for a 90 Hz refresh rate as rumored.
This phone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G chipset which delivers 5G features. This processor is paired with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.
The back houses a dual camera configuration consisting of a 12.2 MP main camera and a 16 MP ultra-wide camera. For selfies, the front camera has a resolution of 8 MP which is located in the upper left punch hole of the screen. There is also a physical fingerprint sensor on the back.
The Pixel 5A 5G runs on Android 11 and is guaranteed 3 years of OS updates and security patch support. The battery has a capacity of 4,680 mAh which Google claims can last up to 1 full day in normal use. If Extreme Battery Saver mode is enabled, it can last up to 2 days on a single charge.
The phone only supports wired charging and ships with an 18W charger in the sales package. Google says this will be the last Pixel phone to ship with a charger in the box, apparently for environmental reasons like Apple and Samsung do.
