Pixel 4a 5G has just been unveiled at Google’s Launch Night In event. The new phone goes further than simply adding 5G to the popular Pixel 4a – with some interesting new enhancements.

Google revealed way back at the start of August that we’d be getting a 5G version of Pixel 4 and, ever since then, there have been leaks aplenty regarding the new device. The full details have now been confirmed and we’ve gotten a Pixel 4a 5G that offers some impressive specs across the board, even if it may struggle against some strong cheaper competition.

Google Pixel 4a 5G pricing begins at £499 in the UK, pricing it well above the likes of OnePlus Nord (£379) and Moto G 5G Plus (£299). 

However, Pixel 4a 5G certainly has the jump on specs compared to these devices:

  • Display: 6.2-inch 2340×1080 60Hz OLED
  • Processor: Snapdragon 765G
  • RAM: 6GB
  • Storage: 128GB
  • Camera: 12-megapixel main sensor and a 16-megapixel wide-angle
  • Battery: 3885mAh
  • I/O: USB-C and headphone jack

While simply whacking 5G into Pixel 4a would’ve seemed like an obvious choice, the specs show Google has gone for something a tad more premium – giving the 5G version the same processor as the new Pixel 5

Pixel 4a 5G also gets the same camera setup from Pixel 4 that is also carrying over to Pixel 5. The extra wide-angle sensor provides enhanced zoom capabilities, improved low light capabilities and, of course, a wider wide-angle option.

The new Pixel 4a 5G is only available in Black for now, going against rumours pointing towards a White model. You can join the waiting list for Pixel 4a 5G, with the device set to be released on November 19. If Pixel 4a 5G doesn’t quite match up to your spec needs, Pixel 5 is also available to pre-order now (for October 15) and starts at £599.
