Google may have taken the unorthodox step of We looked straight into the rumors of the Pixel 5a being canceled a few weeks ago. Aside from the fact that such a 5G-enabled model is slated for a release in the US and Japan “later this year,” we don’t know much about the midway ahead. Ranger.
Officially, because unofficially a handset made by Google looks almost identical to last year’s Pixel 4a 5G Fully leaked two whole months ago. Of course, between then and August or September, some important things could definitely change when we expect the unannounced Pixel 5a 5G to finally see daylight.
When a new discovery is made by the typically reliable people at 9To5Google is led to believe that the make and model of the phone processor may already be set in stone. Just like the Pixel 5a (5G) design, this chipset looks familiar, which further diminishes our excitement for an increasingly redundant sounding product.
Not a raw speed upgrade for you!
It’s true, all recent signs, including those posted in freshly released Android 12 Developer Preview 3 files, once again point to using a Snapdragon 765 SoC. Should it ultimately turn out to be the processor under the hood of the Pixel 5a 5G (codenamed Barbet), the previously unreleased phone would be just as powerful as it is in 2020 Pixel 5, but also that Pixel 4a 5G.
This is of course theoretical and at first glance, because Google could always work with its software magic to better optimize this year’s Android Mid-Ranger and thus improve the real user experience in a meaningful way that cannot be accurately represented by synthetic benchmarks.
There’s also the possibility (albeit slim) that the search giant will go for an 8GB RAM count this time, from 6 to the Pixel 4a and 4a 5G and on par with Pixel 5. This can make a more noticeable improvement than, say, a modest jump from a Snapdragon 765 to a slightly faster one 768 chipset with 5G support.
5G support could be the reason Big G has to settle for the same processor as last year. The only alternative made by Qualcomm is the Snapdragon 780 was just introduced last month. Given Given the global chip crisis threatening to hit virtually all of the major smartphone vendors, relying on such a new model is probably not advisable, especially if you are far from Qualcomm’s largest customer.
All in all, this decision certainly makes sense (and the Snapdragon 765 is by no means a bad processor), but something tells us that many hardcore Google fans will still be disappointed to hear all of this.
How deep can you go?
With pixels 4a and 4a, 5G should be maintained at least until the end of the year and until the end of the year Pixel 5a 5G looks so easily memorable on paper that one has to wonder exactly how to tell the difference between all of these budget-friendly mid-end devices.
More importantly, we’re excited to see how Google can fix the three prices in order to maintain their overall appeal. For example, if the Pixels 4a and 4a 5G drop to $ 300 and $ 400, respectively, when the $ 500 Pixel 5a 5G is for sale?
And that’s (probably) the Pixel 5a 5G
If so, what can the new man bring to the table to justify a $ 100 premium over its Snapdragon 765 predecessor? Will the dual rear view camera system get major improvements enough to make the difference worth it? Could Google question OnePlus or Samsung’s high battery capacity numbers? This time, are we looking at a sleek 6.2-inch display with a refresh rate of 120 or at least 90 Hz?
Of course, all of these questions will be answered in due course, and so will performance Google’s first internal processor could produce the high-end Pixel 6.
