Pixel 5a: Google’s affordable alternative could be launching soon

March 21, 2021

Here’s what we know.

Google’s current flagship Pixel 5 has been out for a while, which is why rumors are now swirling the interwebs as to when its budget-friendly version will be releasing. The recent release of the Android 12 Developer Preview may have clues as to what we can expect from the next Google device.

As the second Developer Preview of Android 12 was released, information about the next Pixel was reportedly seen by users looking around for clues. One of these includes the model number ‘GR0M2’ which can confirm that the device is in the final stage of production – i.e., the release date should be near.

Design-wise, the Pixel 5a borrows largely from the looks of the Pixel 4a. Rumored specifications include a 6.2-inch OLED display that comes with a full HD resolution similar to the Pixel 4a 5G. It will also support a dual camera sensor (a 16-megapixel ultra-wide sensor paired with the primary 12.2-megapixel main sensor) that’s similar to the Pixel 5.

One thing we’re curious to know is the price, considering that the Pixel 5 skipped using a high-end CPU that made it more affordable at launch compared to the Pixel 4. Expect more details about the Pixel 5a in the next few weeks, as an official announcement could be coming soon.
