Google recently unveiled the Google Pixel 6 series smartphones. But it is not everything that Google is going to launch in the coming days. The search engine giant might also launch the Pixel 5a later this month. According to a report from Gizmochina, Google Pixel 5a might launch on August 26 in the US. While there’s zero probability of the Pixel 6 series smartphones to launch in India, the Pixel 5a just might make it. The company is already selling the Pixel 4a in India for Rs 29,999 for the 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage variant. Thus, there’s a great chance that the Pixel 5a might come to India as well.
Google Pixel 5a Might Run on Qualcomm Snapdragon 7 Series Chipset
The Google Pixel 5a might run on Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G SoC coupled with up to 6GB of RAM. Google might not bring a 256GB variant of the device in India to ensure that it stays in the medium pricing range only.
Reportedly, the smartphone might launch on August 26, 2021, and might be priced at $450 (approximately Rs 33,369.75) which seems to be in line with Google’s target price for the Indian market.
The Pixel 5a is expected to pack a 6.4-inch FHD+ display powered by a 4,650mAh battery. Further, the smartphone is expected to come with a 3.5mm headphone jack with IP67 certification for being dust and water-resistant.
In the camera department, the Pixel 5a is expected to come with the same camera setup as that of the Pixel 5. There should be a dual-camera sensor at the rear with a 12.2MP primary sensor and a 16MP ultra-wide-angle sensor.
But this could also go sideways for the Indian Pixel fans since Google might not release the Pixel 5a in the Indian market given the weak response to the Pixel 4a that is also selling in the mid-range category.
