Google will be pulling the covers off the Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a 5G in just over a week, and we now have a better idea of the colors that Mountain View’s next phones will come in.
As reported by Droid Life, black, white and green variants of both phones have appeared on the websites of a few different European retailers.
More Computers offers the Pixel 5 in white with the model name GA01986-UK and in a black version with the name GA01316-UK. Interestingly, the German store Computer Universe also lists GA01986 but calls it green rather than white.
The Pixel 4a 5G is also available from More Computers in white as model number GA01
Each Pixel 5 and 4a 5G model contains 128 GB of built-in storage. Given what we know about Pixel phones of the past, they almost certainly won’t support microSD cards to add further capacity.
In terms of pricing, Google confirmed a long time ago that the Pixel 4a 5G wouldn’t cost more than $ 500. So the £ 499 price tag BT mentions is not news there. However, we don’t know what Google is going to charge for the Pixel 5.
More Computers has the Pixel 5 for £ 615; It also has the Pixel 4a 5G priced at £ 515. You can probably put on the £ 15 tax charge, which leads us to believe the Pixel 5 will land at $ 600 as some sources have suggested.
Google is hosting an event on September 30th that will see not only the next list of Pixel phones, but likely new Nest-branded products and a new Chromecast dongle as well. Samsung unveiled a cheaper version of its Galaxy S20 called the Galaxy S20 FE on September 23, and OnePlus launched its OnePlus 8T on October 14 – not to mention a small company called Apple that will sell the iPhone 12 sometime in October -Series demonstrates – The peak season for smartphones is as close as the air is cold.
