Google’s Pixel series has always been some of the most awaited phones every year. Ever since the first iteration of this series, there has always been great hype around these phones. The latest in the series, the Google Pixel 4A 5G and 5 have had this effect on people too. Though the official reveal will come on the 30th of September, there seems to have been a leak of all the specs that that these devices will bear. With Roland Quandt, who has a good reputation with leaks, and his revelations on winfuture.de, we know a lot.
Based on these spec sheets, the Pixel 4A 5G and Pixel 5 seem to have a lot of similarities. They do seem to have a lot of features in common, think base model, pro model kind of similar. These are still pretty good features, as you would expect from Google’s Pixel series. They seem to be promising devices. Picking between them might prove to be more challenging than you think.
Google Pixel 4A 5G and 5 Specifications
They have several similarities. Google will be equipping both of these phones with the latest Android 11. Though they will not be of the same size, both these phones will have 2340 x 1080 OLED screens. They will both be boasting the Snapdragon 765G CPU and 128 GB of internal storage. Both of them also have dual cameras, a 12.2MP primary lens and a 16MP ultra-wide lens and an 8 MP front camera.
These similarities ensure that you will not be picking your phone based on cameras or processors. There are, however, other differences that you might consider. Of the two, the Pixel 5 seems to have a more premium build. Equipped with IP68 Rating for water and dust resistance, and even Gorilla Glass 5, the Pixel 5 is more equipped to deal with anything. In terms of RAM, the Pixel 5 will have 8 GB while the Pixel 4A 5G will probably have 6GB.
The Pixel 4A 5G might be bigger and heavier than the Pixel 4. Bearing no IP Rating and just Gorilla glass 3, it may not be as rugged as the Pixel 5. The Pixel 5 supposedly comes with 5000mAh while the Pixel 4A 5G is supposed to have a smaller battery, with 3885 mAh. While the Pixel 5 will come with a screen refresh rate of 90 Hz, the Pixel 4A 5G will come with a refresh rate of just a 60 Hz. Though both have 18W charging, the Pixel 4a 5G, unlike the Pixel 5, does not seem to sport wireless or reverse charging. However, the Pixel 4A 5G is presumed to come with a 3.5 mm headphone jack, a feature that might not exist in the Pixel 5.
With all of this considered, the Pixel 4A 5G might be the cheaper variant of the two. Yet until the official release on the 30th of September nothing can be said for sure. Quality is something that the Pixel series is known for, and these devices do look like they will live up to those standards. However, until officially announced you should consider these specs with a pinch of salt.
