According to Twitter tipster and FPT frontman Jon Prosser
, the long-awaited Pixel 5a
mid-range model will be launched on August 26th in just two markets, the U.S. and Japan. It will be available only online or physically available from Google
Stores priced at $450 USD. The one color available will be Mostly Black.
The Pixel 5a
will feature a 6.4-inch display that can be updated 60 to 90 times a second. The Snapdragon 765G will be under the hood with 6GB of memory inside. A generously sized 4650mAh battery will keep the lights on and there will be no wireless charging

An IP67 rating means that the phone can be submerged in up to 1 meter (3.28 feet) of water for up to 30 minutes and emerge unscathed. The Pixel
5a will reportedly also sport a 3.5mm earphone jack.
The camera array will be the same one used last year on the Pixel 5
which means you should expect a 12.2MP main camera with an aperture of f/1.7. Also on the back will be a 16MP Ultra-wide camera with an f/2.2 aperture.
If you want flagship specs and features, the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro
could be available for purchase sometime in October. We also might see Google toss its hat into the foldable market with the Pixel Fold. The Pixel is not only returning to its flagship days, but it is doing so riding on the back of the Google's own chipset with the codename of Whitechapel.
