In addition to launching the Google Pixel 5 today, the company also announced the Google Pixel 4a 5G. We’ve already covered the launch of the Google Pixel 4a 5G, and are here to take a closer look at its specifications.
The Google Pixel 4a 5G sits somewhere between the Pixel 4a and Pixel 5 in terms of sheer power. It is inferior to the Pixel 5, technically, and yet it’s more powerful than its sibling, the Pixel 4a.
Google opted to utilize the same chip on this phone as on the Pixel 5, by the way. We’re talking about the Snapdragon 765G, of course, Qualcomm’s mid-range chip. This processor does support 5G, and it enables the phone itself to utilize it.
The Google Pixel 4a 5G specifications include a larger display than the Pixel 5
The Pixel 4a 5G has a larger display than the Pixel 5, it sports a 6.2-inch fullHD+ (2340 x 1080) OLED display. That panel does not offer a high refresh rate, though, it’s limited to 60Hz. It is protected by the Gorilla Glass 3, just like the Pixel 4a.
The device includes 6GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 128GB of UFS 2.1 flash storage. The Titan M security chip is also included, same as on the Pixel 5. A nano SIM card is also a part of the package, along with an eSIM.
This handset includes a 3,800mAh battery, and it supports the same fast charging as the Pixel 5. The phone comes with 18W fast wired charging. Unlike the Pixel 5, it does not support wireless charging, nor reverse charging.
The phone is made out of plastic
The phone is made out of polycarbonate (plastic), just like the Pixel 4a. The Pixel 4a 5G does include stereo speakers, and two microphones. An audio jack is also a part of the package, which is not something the Pixel 5 can say for itself.
A 12.2-megapixel main camera (f/1.7 aperture, 1.4um pixel size, two-phase autofocus, OIS, EIS, 77-degree FoV) sits on the back of the device. A 16-megapixel ultra-wide camera (f/2.2 aperture, 1.0um pixel size, 107-degree FoV) is also included here. This is the exact same camera setup as on the Pixel 5. The phone can record 4K video at 60 FPS.
Speaking of the Pixel 5, the Pixel 4a 5G includes the same front-facing camera as the Pixel 5. We’re looking at an 8-megapixel unit (f/2.0 aperture, 1.12um pixel size, 83-degree FoV, fixed focus).
A rear-facing fingerprint scanner is included
A fingerprint scanner sits on the back of this phone, and it’s a regular capacitive unit. Bluetooth 5.0 is included here, as is an NFC chip. The phone supports Wi-Fi 802.11 ac, and it has a Type-C USB 3.1 port at the bottom.
The Google Pixel 4a 5G comes in two colors, Just Black and Clearly White. The phone measures 153.9 x 74 x 8.2mm, while it weighs 168 grams. The phone is not currently available to pre-order, but you can join a waitlist by clicking the link below.
