The Google Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5 just leaked again, revealing the design and specs

Tonight, we were treated to the first live photo of the Google Pixel 4a 5G and Google Pixel 5. A Redditor shared (and has since deleted) a photo that seemingly shows the Pixel 5 in black and Pixel 4a 5G in white. The photo, which can be seen in the featured image as well as below, allegedly shows both phones side-by-side, with the smaller Pixel 5 on the left and the larger Pixel 4a 5G on the right.

The Redditor also shared a set of specifications in a comment, which we’ve reproduced below since the user has deleted their comments:

  • Google Pixel 5
    • 4,000 mAh battery
    • Rear cameras
      • 0.5x wide-angle lens, possibly the 16MP Sony IMX481
      • 12.2MP main camera (allegedly the Sony IMX363)
    • Front camera
      • 8MP Sony IMX355
    • Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G
    • 8GB RAM
    • 90Hz display
    • Plastic back
    • Physical fingerprint scanner on back
    • No 3.5mm headphone jack
  • Google Pixel 4a 5G
    • 3,800 mAh battery
    • Rear cameras
      • 0.5x wide-angle lens, possibly the 16MP Sony IMX481
      • 12.2MP main camera (allegedly the Sony IMX363)
    • Front camera
      • 8MP Sony IMX355
    • Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G
    • 6GB RAM
    • 60Hz display
    • Physical fingerprint scanner on back
    • 3.5mm headphone jack

The user also posted a few screenshots from the Pixel 5. One was a screenshot from the AndroBench storage benchmark showing storage speeds typical of UFS 2.1 storage while another screenshot from a hardware info app showed the battery capacity as 4,000mAh.

While we can’t verify the authenticity of the live photo and by extension the specs posted by the Redditor, the information does mostly line up with the recent CAD renders of the Pixel 4a 5G (published tonight), the CAD renders of the Pixel 5 (published yesterday), and a recent report from Android Central detailing the partial specs of the Pixel 5Android Central on Friday revealed that the Pixel 5 will have a 6.0″ OLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate, a dual rear camera setup including a wide-angle camera, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G, 8GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, a battery that’s “considerably larger” than the one in the Pixel 4, 15W Qi wireless charging support, and 5W reverse wireless charging support. The publication also shared some alleged specifications of the Pixel 4a 5G, claiming that the device will have a 6.2″ display and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G.

We do have some more information to share on the Pixel 4a 5G, thanks to leaker OnLeaks in collaboration with 91Mobiles. The publication shared CAD renders from OnLeaks showing the upcoming device, revealing it’ll have a flat display measuring between 6.1 to 6.2″ diagonally with a single hole-punch cutout, will have dimensions measuring 153.9 x 74.0 x 8.6mm (9.5mm in thickness including the camera bump), a plastic unibody, a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, dual rear cameras housed in a rectangular camera bump, and a 3.5mm headphone jack at the top. At the bottom, we can see the USB Type-C port and what looks like two cutouts: One is likely for a bottom-firing speaker while the other is for a microphone. The two cutouts at the bottom are likely for symmetry, so the second speaker will likely be the earpiece speaker located at the top bezel. Like the Pixel 4 and Pixel 5, the Pixel 4a 5G also has an LED flash and another sensor in the rectangular camera bump, which is likely the spectral and flicker sensor.

The Pixel 4a 5G and 5 are expected to be unveiled at the end of September or the beginning of October (pre-orders will allegedly start October 8th), so we don’t have to wait much longer to know all the specs of these two devices. Google has confirmed that the Pixel 4a 5G will cost $499, but the company hasn’t revealed the starting price of the Pixel 5. The company has already confirmed the availability, though, noting that both devices will be available in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, France, Germany, Japan, Taiwan, and Australia.

An earlier version of this article incorrectly attributed a claim of the Pixel 4a 5G having 8GB of RAM to Android Central’s reporting. We regret this error.
