It’s been a long wait, but Google’s Pixel 5a 5G is finally coming. Probably.
According to Android Police, who has obtained some new information and photographs of various parts of the device, the Pixel 5a 5G will be launched really, really soon: on Tuesday, August 17.
We’ve sort of known what the device will look like since February, thanks to some renders produced by leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer. In a nutshell, it looks pretty much exactly the same as the Pixel 4a 5G, and the photos obtained by Android Police confirm the design.
The Pixel 5a 5G will have a dual rear camera and a fingerprint scanner on the back, and it will be roughly the same size as its predecessor, the Pixel 4a 5G, with a 6.2-inch OLED display on the front.
The new pics also reveal an important specification: The phone will come with a massive 4,680mAh battery, larger than we’ve seen in any Pixel phone so far.
About that launch date: Android Police say notes that, while their source says the phone will launch on Aug. 17, previous rumors indicate an Aug. 26 release in stores.
As for the price, rumors say the phone will retail for $450.
The Pixel 5a 5G should not be confused with Google’s upcoming Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, which will have an entirely new design and will come with Google silicon inside. They will launch sometime this fall.
