According to yesterday’s reviews, the Pixel 4a (5G) and Pixel 5 are on your doorstep today. Google released factory images for the Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a (5G) this afternoon.
The Pixel 5 (Redfin) has two builds today. Most of the users around the world are on RD1A.200810.020 while Japan’s KDDI is RD1A.200810.021.A1. Meanwhile, the Pixel 4a (5G) has a build.
All three are in the October security patch, even though it was released in the middle of the month. In the US, the Pixel 5 will ship by the end of this month, but may not be until early November. It will be interesting to see which patch is included. In the meantime, it will also be interesting to see if the Pixel 5 has its own build in the US given the presence of mmWave radios.
These images will allow users to restore a software damaged Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5 to the original factory firmware. However, Google notes that “it is usually easier and safer to download the full OTA image from the page instead,”
