Mention a Google Pixel 5a at the moment it seems so silly to know that Google will announce the super delayed Pixel 4a in a couple of days. Here we are talking, however, about the Pixel 5a (probably) for 2021because Google has acknowledged its existence.
It was first seen on AOSP by 9to5Google, on a code page discussing VPN compatibility with Android Q, we have a comment from a Google that shows all Google Pixel devices through the Pixel 2 and what versions of Android they launched. You’ll see there the Pixel 2, the Pixel 3 and the 3rd and the Pixel 4, all devices that have really been released. When the fun pops up, the list goes on with references to the Pixel 4a, Pixel 4a 5G, Pixel 5, and Pixel 5a.
These are four devices that Google has not yet announced or shipped, so yes, I would say it’s news. Again, we know that the Pixel 4a is approaching on August 3rd. We’ve seen references to the Pixel 4a 5G and the Pixel 5, which could be launched later this year with a Snapdragon 765 processor. So the Pixel 5a is new.
Here we don’t get a lot of details about a Pixel 5a, just the suggestion that it will be released with Android R (Android 11). This only tells us that it should arrive sometime in the first part of 2021 before Google can ship Android S (Android 12).
Hi, a new pixel to crawl!
