Google has officially announced its Pixel 5a with 5G today even though it confirmed it was coming in April to push back against rumors that it had been cancelled. With a savings of $50 and a paltry list of updates over its predecessor the Pixel 4a 5G, is the Pixel 5a with %G the mid-range phone to beat in 2021?
Stand out features
The phone features a unibody plastic chassis similar to the current Pixel 5. The device is to measure 156.2 x 73.2 x 8.8mm. The display is likely to be a 6.4-inch panel with a full display design and hole-punch front camera. The rear camera is reportedly to retain the same camera sensors.
