The Pixel 6 lineup is among the most talked-about phone in recent times. But because it’s a flagship series, it won’t be everyone’s cup of tea. To reduce this gap, Google has finally announced the Pixel 5a 5G. Here, we will be discussing the key specs, features, expected price, and availability of Google Pixel 5a 5G in Nepal.

Google Pixel 5a 5G Overview:

Design and Display

Consistent with the previous leaks, the Pixel 5a 5G sports a similar design as its predecessor. However, Google has made the phone comparatively more durable by opting for a metallic body instead of a polycarbonate one. In addition, the new Pixel 5a 5G is IP67 rated against water and dust damage too.

This time around, there is only one color option. The “Mostly Black” color of the phone looks to have been extracted from the two colors of Pixel 5.

Moving on, Pixel 5a 5G features a bigger screen that measures 6.34-inch. This OLED panel has 2400 x 1080 pixels resolution that results in a taller 20:9 aspect ratio. The other aspect of the display has remained unchanged such as the punch-hole cutout, Gorilla Glass 3 protection, and HDR support.

Performance and Memory 

There is not much change on the inside either. Google has decided to stick with Snapdragon 765G for this phone. It is the same chipset that was used in the regular Pixel 5 and 4a 5G. This has been paired with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.

Interestingly, Google is not providing unlimited storage for Google Photos to the Pixel 5a 5G users, which has been one of the main appeals of the Pixel lineup so far.

Camera

Like with the processor, the phone doesn’t bring any changes to the cameras either. Pixel 5a 5G’s camera setup is identical to that of Pixel 5 and 4a 5G.

You get a 12.2MP primary camera with dual-pixel phase detection autofocus. It even supports Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) and Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) for stable footage. It is accompanied by a 16MP ultrawide sensor with a 118.7º Field of View (FOV).

Still, there is no spectral + flicker sensor as in the Pixel 5, which enhances recording under pulsed light sources.

Rest of the specs

Moving on, the biggest advantage that Pixel 5a 5G has is its battery. It features a 4,680mAh battery, which may not sound much, but is the biggest battery ever in a Pixel phone.

Music lovers will be delighted to know that Pixel 5a 5G features stereo speakers as well as a 3.5mm headphone jack. Additionally, the Type-C port also supports audio signal output.
