The Google Pixel 5a is rumored to get official on June 11, and so far a leak has showed us that it will have a design that’s practically indistinguishable from that of the Pixel 4a 5G. Its dimensions make it closer to that phone than to the smaller Pixel 4a too.
If you were wondering what sort of horsepower to expect under the hood, well – let’s cut right to the chase here. The Pixel 5a 5G will have the Snapdragon 765G chipset at the helm, just like the Pixel 4a 5G and the Pixel 5. That SoC is definitely getting a bit old right now, especially with the Snapdragon 780G being official and shipping in phones like the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G.
The fact that the Pixel 5a 5G will have the Snapdragon 765G powering it was confirmed through code found in the Android 12 Developer Preview 3, where a bunch of lines referenced the Pixel 5a 5G’s codename and the Snapdragon 765G’s model number together.
What’s still a mystery is whether Google will out both a Pixel 5a and a Pixel 5a 5G – because the Pixel 4a and Pixel 4a 5G are very different devices. We don’t know about that just yet, but stay tuned and we’ll bring you more info when we have it.
