Google unveils model new, budget-friendly Pixel 5a … however there’s dangerous information for Android followers within the UK

The Pixel 5a, which is available for pre-order today in the US and Japan, is a 5G-enabled smartphone that offers a number of improvements over its predecessor. Based on the more expensive Pixel 5, this latest budget Android phone from Google has a bigger screen and better battery life compared to the Pixel 4a and Pixel 4a 5G.

While the 4a and 4a 5G were equipped with a 3,140 mAh and 3,885 mAh battery and a 5.8-inch and a 6.2-inch display, the Pixel 5a has a huge 4,680 mAh battery and a 6.34-inch screen. The massive battery, the largest on any Pixel phone, offers two days of juice in Extreme Battery Saver mode, Google says.

The Pixel 5a is also the first A-Series Pixel phone to come with an IP67 rating against water and dust, which means the handset will survive an accidental drop in the toilet – or a dip in your beer. That should be comforting for those with butter fingers.

The Pixel 5a is powered by the 5G-enabled Snapdragon 765G chipset, which is the same processor as the Pixel 5. This means that you should expect decent speeds when juggling between apps, editing photos, and videos. However, don’t expect anything like the increases in AI on the device that Google predicted with its upcoming Pixel 6.

Launched in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, the Pixel 5 has been dubbed the “economic downturn” phone. The 2020 device went for a great price instead of a big leap in design and specifications.

Elsewhere, the Pixel 5a keeps the tried and true 3.5mm headphone jack and comes with a 12 MP dual pixel and 16 MP ultra-wide camera sensor. The latter means that the Pixel 5a will be able to take ultra-wide-angle lens shots, which the Pixel 5 did – but the Pixel 4a did not.

The Pixel 5a is available for pre-order today in the US and Japan from the Google Store ahead of the August 26 release date. It’s also available in the US through Google Fi and costs $ 449. This is $ 50 cheaper than the Pixel 4a 5G, which it retails at.

But what about those in the UK? Well, there is some bad news.

Speaking to Express.co.uk, a Google spokesperson said, “Pixel 5a (5G) will be available in the US and Japan, global supply chain challenges have limited larger regional adoption.”

The Pixel 5a is only available in the Mostly Black color scheme, but there are four different colored cases if owners want to change the look of their phone.

When announcing its new smartphone, Mountain View said: “With the Pixel 5a with 5G, the latest A-series Pixel phone from Google with many of the helpful features that users have come to love (and a few new hardware additions) More The phone launches August 26th and features IP67 water resistance, a powerful battery, Pixel’s impressive dual camera system, and much more – pre-order now for $ 449. “

“On August 26th, the Pixel 5a with 5G will be shipping from the Google Store as well as Google Fi in the US and SoftBank in Japan.”

The official announcement for the Google Pixel 5a comes after much speculation and leaks, including one today that revealed the new Android phone early on.

As reported by MSPowerUser, the first ad for the Google Pixel 5a went live early. The promotional shot of the Pixel 5a promo was revealed by Japanese company SoftBank, with the ad showing the phone’s camera functions. In addition to the new Pixel phones, Google could also have another new product up its sleeve that hits the market in 2021.

Rumors have it that a new Chromecast may hit the market this year, which could be the successor to the Chromecast Ultra.

However, it remains to be seen what the big selling point of a potential new ultra streaming device could be. The main thing that set the Chromecast Ultra apart from the regular Google streaming dongle was its 4K HDR support. However, the last Chromecast with Google TV released last year already supports 4K content.
