Google Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5 : Date, specifications and prices
(Google Pixel 4a)As many will remember, the official presentation of the Pixel 4a carried out at the beginning of the year, took an eternity to wait for those most loyal to Google. Months later, it has finally come true and we already have here the new Pixel 4a with 5G connectivity, accompanied by the Pixel 5.
The regular Pixel 4a proved to be quite talented, so a 5G-capable successor seems like an interesting upgrade to many. It not only incorporates 5G connectivity, but also brings other novelties to consider for just € 100 of price difference compared to its predecessor.
What is the sale date of the Pixel 4a 5G?
The standard Pixel 4a went on sale in the US on August 20 and is now available to pre-order in Spain at a suggested retail price of € 389, with free shipping once it is available before its planned release date. October 1st.
Google says this is largely due to supply chain problems caused by COVID-19. In this way, the brand continues to market its predecessor models such as the Pixel 3a at a price of € 399, as well as the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL at prices of € 759 and € 899 respectively.
Now that these two new Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5 models have already been presented, Google adds to its catalog two new models that will not initially be for sale in our country. Unlike France, for which there are already confirmed prices in euros, Spain is left out of the first consignment of countries in which they will be marketed.
How much will the Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5 cost?
Long before the launch date was announced, Google decided to unveil the US price for 4th 5G with the following message:
“This fall, we have two more devices to talk about: the Pixel 4a (5G), starting at $ 499, and the Pixel 5.”
In this way, it has been confirmed that the final recommended price for the Pixel 4a 5G is € 499, which confirms that it is € 110 more expensive than its normal Pixel 4a younger brother that costs € 389. In this way, if you still doubt between one model or another, in the long term you will be interested in the bet of the 4a 5G model if you want a mobile for the next 2 or 3 years.
The configuration for the price of € 499 corresponds to 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, with a screen size that differs slightly from the Pixel 4a (5.8 inches) to become a little larger than 6 ,2 inches. In this sense, the Pixel 5 is now 6 inches with FullHD + resolution at 2340 x 1080 pixels.
What are the specifications of the Pixel 4a 5G?
The summary of specifications of the new Pixel 4a 5G model are as follows:
- 6.3-inch 60Hz OLED display
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor and Adreno 620 GPU
- 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage
- 12.2MP main camera (Sony IMX363)
- 16 MP wide angle lens with 0.5x zoom
- 8MP Sony IMX355 front selfie camera
- 5G LTE connectivity, Wifi ac and Bluetooth 5.0
- 3,800 mAh battery
- 18W fast charge
- Physical fingerprint scanner on the back
- 3.5mm headphone jack
In this way, the Pixel 4a 5G would be sharing the same Snapdragon 765G processor with the Pixel 5 model, in addition to maintaining the same set of rear and front cameras to cover the spectrum of photography and video. Not so, other aspects such as the battery where the 3800 mAh of the Pixel 4a 5G is not comparable to the 4.080 mAh of the Pixel 5.
What differences are there with the Pixel 5?
For design purposes, the new Pixel 5 has an aluminum design on its back where the finishes of the Pixel 4a and 4a 5G are polycarbonate. They all share the characteristic of being resistant to water and dust with the IP68 certification, but the Pixel 5 has 3 microphones for audio, compared to the two of the 4a series.
The price difference is also palpable in other areas of the configuration. All of them have the Snapdragon 765G processor with Adreno 620 graphics chip. However, the 6 GB of LPDDR4-type RAM in the Pixel 4a and 4z 5G converts to 8 GB of RAM in the Pixel 5, a little extra that will suit Android 11.
The aspect ratio of the Pixel screens coincides with a ratio of 19.5: 9. Google has chosen to keep it in all of them, although what varies notably is that the new Pixel 5 already provides an improved screen refresh rate of 90 Hz, while the 4 series of Pixel stays at the traditional 60 Hz.
Given this, we realize that the problems caused by COVID-19 in the manufacturing and supply chain of the Pixel 4a seem to have taken their toll on Google. The price differences are now minimal and the sale in our country has not taken place.
