Google’s Pixel 5a could arrive later this month, though the telephone nonetheless gained’t come to Canada.

According to YouTuber Jon Prosser (through his FrontPageTech web site), the Pixel 5a will go on sale beginning August twenty sixth within the U.S. and Japan. That matches up roughly with what Google itself stated again in April when it introduced the telephone to dispel rumours that it had been cancelled.

As a fast refresher, rumours started circulating in early April noting that Google would cancel the 5a. That included a tweet from Prosser, who stated the cancellation was due to ongoing chip shortages. The search large responded by asserting the telephone, noting it’d be “available later this year in the U.S. and Japan and announced in line with when last year’s a-series phone was introduced.”

That’s a bit imprecise, contemplating there have been two a-series Pixel telephones that launched final yr — the 4a and 4a 5G. Google introduced the 4a on August third with a September tenth launch date in Canada. It additionally teased the 4a 5G on August third, however didn’t formally announce the telephone till September thirtieth. If the rumoured August twenty sixth date is correct, it’ll be a couple of month behind the 4a announcement and a month forward of the 4a 5G.

Along with the discharge date, Prosser detailed a number of the specs for the Pixel 5a, which don’t appear a lot completely different from the Pixel 4a 5G.

First, there will likely be a 6.4-inch show, doubtless utilizing an OLED panel, with a 90Hz refresh charge. That’s barely greater than the 6.2-inch 4a 5G display screen, which was solely 60Hz.

The 5a may even sport Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 765G chipset, the identical as what’s within the 4a 5G. That additionally means the 5a will provide 5G help, however I’d be extra shocked if the telephone didn’t. The 5a could have 6GB of RAM and a 4,650mAh battery, though Prosser says the telephone gained’t help wi-fi charging. Finally, the 5a reportedly provides IP67 water resistance and a headphone jack.

Prosser notes the 5a will retail for $450 within the U.S. (about $565.76 CAD). That would make the 5a cheaper than the $499 USD ($679 CAD) 4a 5G.

Ultimately, it seems just like the Pixel 5a is shaping as much as be a wonderful addition to Google’s reasonably priced a-series lineup, though I’d like to see it use a more moderen CPU. It’s a disgrace the telephone gained’t come to Canada, though Google could change that if the chip scarcity eases (however I wouldn’t maintain out hope).
