Did we just get a glimpse of Google’s 5G Pixel phones?

  • The Google Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5 5G may have broken cover in a leaked image.
  • It looks like the Pixel 4a 5G will be bigger than the flagship.
  • Google is expected to launch the standard Pixel 4a today.

The Google Pixel 4a has been extensively leaked in 2020, and we’re just about due for a reveal later today. This phone isn’t expected to be a 5G model though, but it looks like two 5G Pixel phones may have broken cover yesterday.

Serial tipster Ishan Agarwal shared an image (via Samsung Bloat) purportedly showing the Pixel 5 5G on the left and the Pixel 4a 5G on the right. Check out the image in the embedded tweet below.

Agarwal suggests that the Pixel 4a 5G will be bigger than the standard model, basically making it a Pixel 4a XL in all but name. Here’s hoping Google adds a bigger battery to both phones, as 5G connectivity tends to sap battery life in a big way compared to 4G.

The picture also shows what seems to be a very similar camera housing for the two phones. Google added a secondary rear camera to the Pixel 4 series last year, so it wouldn’t be a surprise if both phones continue this trend. Then again, leaked images of the standard Pixel 4a show a camera housing that’s similar to the Pixel 4, but the budget phone is only expected to pack a single rear camera.

The Samsung Bloat account-holder also claims that the Pixel 4a 5G will retail for $500 at launch, while suggesting that it could be equipped with the Snapdragon 765G processor. This account doesn’t have a long track record at all, so it’s still worth taking these leaks with a pinch of salt.
