Just before the Pixel 6 will be released, Google first announced the mid-level new product Pixel 5a priced at $449.
The specifications can be said to be similar to the previous generation, allowing everyone to continue to experience Google’s native system, AI functions, and amazing camera shooting at a relatively low price.
In other words, Pixel 5a should not be the direct successor of 4a, because 4a is just a small 5.8-inch mobile phone.
So in terms of size, the Pixel 5a with a 6.34-inch OLED screen is more like a continuation of the 6.2-inch Pixel 4a 5G, and although the name is not emphasized, the Pixel 5a has 5G connectivity.
Because the screen is relatively large, the resolution has been slightly increased to 2,400 x 1,080, and the panel supports 100,000:1 contrast ratio and HDR display.
But it only has a refresh rate of 60Hz. Fortunately, there is still a high-brightness display mode to correspond to the use under the sun.
The core specifications of Pixel 5a are the same as the 4a series, using Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor and 6GB RAM.
The more obvious upgrade is the battery. It is indeed the same as the previous revelations. It uses a larger 4,680mAh to cater to the high power consumption of the 5G era.
And 5a now also has IP67 waterproof and dustproof specifications, so it’s okay to accidentally drop the phone into the water.
In addition, the screen glass is upgraded from the previous Gorilla Glass 3 to 6, and the protection should also be greatly improved.
As for the few “advantages” of the A series, the 3.5mm headphone jack is of course retained, and the fingerprint reader is also placed on the back of the machine.
The camera part also uses the 4a 5G 12.2MP wide-angle + 16MP ultra-wide-angle main camera combination, and the selfie camera hidden under the perforated screen is 8MP. Continue to benefit from the power of Google AI to process images, especially the night shots that can be admired by the editors of the main site.
As mentioned earlier, Google Pixel 5a will only be available in the United States and Japan. Friends who are interested may have to find another channel to buy it.
