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 few days. However, here we are (probably) talking about Pixel 5a for 2021
First discovered at AOSP by 9to5GoogleOn a code page that explains VPN compatibility with Android Q, we have a comment from a Googler, in which all Google Pixel devices are listed via Pixel 2 and with which Android versions they were started. There you can see Pixel 2, Pixel 3 and 3a as well as Pixel 4, all devices that were actually started. The fun is shown when the list continues with references to Pixel 4a, Pixel 4a, 5G, Pixel 5 and Pixel 5a.
These are four devices that Google has not yet announced or delivered. Yes, I would say that’s some news. We know again that Pixel 4a is coming on August 3rd. We have seen pointers to the Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5, both of which could be launched later this year with a Snapdragon 765 processor. Pixel 5a, well, that’s new.
We don’t get any details about a Pixel 5a here, just the suggestion that it start with Android R (Android 11). It really only tells us that it should arrive sometime in the first part of 2021 before Google can deliver Android S (Android 12).
Hey, a new pixel to track!
