Google Pixel 5a leaks in full with dual-camera setup, very familiar design


Almost seven months after announcing the mid-range Pixel 4a, Google is hard at work on the next-generation Pixel 5a. The device is expected to debut next quarter and today tipster Steve Hemmerstoffer has revealed what the phone should look like. 

The Google Pixel 5a looks a lot like the Pixel 4a 5G

New CAD-based renders of the Google Pixel 5a, expected to be one of the best phones under $400, show off a very familiar design that follows in the footsteps of the affordable Google Pixel 4a 5G.
The search giant has chosen a 6.2-inch OLED display complete with a Full-HD+ resolution and a punch hole in the top-right for the selfie camera. These details line up with what the current-gen Pixel 4a 5G offers, so Google might be reusing the latter’s screen on the Pixel 5a. 

Even the bezels are the same thickness, per the information provided by Hemmerstoffer, but there is a small difference in dimensions. The Google Pixel 4a 5G measures in at 153.9 x 74 x 8.2 mm, whereas the upcoming Pixel 5a lands in at 156.2 x 73.2 x 8.8mm, which makes it 2.3mm taller and both a little thicker and wider. 

These size differences are, therefore, down to the updated plastic unibody. It seems to bulge out more towards the edges of the phone and houses several features including a 3.5mm headphone jack on top of the phone and the usual volumer rocker the right side. 

Other details include an accented power button, a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, and a USB-C port on the bottom of the phone, the latter of which is presumably used for Google’s usual 18W fast charging tech. 

The Pixel 5a’s cameras might be borrowed from the flagship Pixel 5

As for the rear panel, it now features a larger square camera bump that houses two sensors rather than one. Again, this is a similar setup to the one used on the Pixel 4a 5G last October, which in turn is identical to the flagship Google Pixel 5’s setup.

For those of you that don’t know, the Pixel 5 boasts a 12.2-megapixel main camera and a 16-megapixel ultra-wide shooter. There is also an LED flash and what could end up being phase detection autofocus system, according to Hemmerstoffer. 
If Google is indeed using this setup on its next mid-range phone, it’ll make the Pixel 5a one of the best camera phones out there, despite the low starting price that’s expected.
