Google today revealed the Pixel 5a, a more-affordable alternative to the Pixel 5 and modest update to the Pixel 4a 5G. Like most Pixel "a" models, it has a larger display, larger battery, and a headset jack, yet is more affordable than the flagship models by skipping features like fast display refresh and wireless charging. For the first time in an "a" model, the Pixel 5a has IP67 water resistance, enough to be submerged in shallow water for short periods of time. It also has the largest battery ever in a Pixel phone at 4,680 mAh, and largest display at 6.34 inches. Otherwise, it shares most features and specs with other recent Pixel phones, such as a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G chip, 6 GB RAM, 128 GB storage, full-HD OLED display, 12 megapixel main camera + 16 megapixel wide camera, 8 megapixel front camera, NFC, fast charging, and a rear fingerprint reader. As expected with any Pixel phone, it has excellent support for all 4G and sub-6 5G networks in the US, including forthcoming C-band networks. The Pixel 5a ships August 26th in Mostly Black for $449. Pre-ordering is open now.
