Google Pixel 5A images leaked; key specifications and thick bezels revealed

Google Pixel 5a images surface online, revealing the design and key specs of the device

It has only been five months since Google released the Pixel 4A but there is already talk about the Google Pixel 5A, the next-gen budget smartphone from Google. There are reports doing the rounds with the latest one giving the first glimpse of the phone.

While Google hasn’t hinted at its successor yet, there are leaked images of the device that many are claiming to be the Google Pixel 5A. Yes, Pixel 5 leaks have popped up just a few months after the launch of Pixel 4A. The images of the alleged Pixel 5A have surfaced online, hinting at a few major upgrades coming for this handset. If one of them is true, it could be a blow for some Pixel fans as Google could be gearing up for the return of Pixel’s trademark bezels.

Prototype Google Pixel 5A images leaked online

A Slashleaks contributor posted five images of a prototype device believed to be the Pixel 5A, showing the front of the handset. However, that’s not it. There was a visible change in the display as compared to previous models. While the Google Pixel 4A and Pixel 5 didn’t have the side bezels, the Pixel 5A could bring back some of it, via uniform top and bottom bezels.

Pixel 5A design and specifications revealed

In the leaked images, it is clear that Google is trying to ditch the front punch-hole for 2021. Instead, the Pixel 5A could host the camera in a thick top bezel. The handset’s design is pretty similar to what was seen on the Google Pixel 2 XL of 2017. The wallpaper features the phone’s name with a huge “5a” inscription, similar to the current wallpapers in the Pixel 4A and Pixel 5.

The Pixel 5 featured Android 11, which hints that the upcoming Pixel device could also run on Android 11. The photos also reveal key specs minus the chipset. The Pixel 5A could feature 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage similar to the Google Pixel 4A. Google could be bringing in a 5G chipset for Google Pixel 5A (widely expected to be the Snapdragon 750G SoC that powers numerous midrange smartphones in the current market).

If you’re looking for upgrades, the Pixel 5A could feature an optical in-display fingerprint sensor, as was evident from the lock screen in the images. In addition, the rear camera is also expected to get extra video stabilization feature, highlighting a dedicated OIS system.
