Yesterday, Google rolled out a couple of new smartphones, which became the first smartphones in the world with preinstalled Android 11. Together with the new software, Google has launched its first 5G smartphones, we are talking about the Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5. The new smartphones come with 12 great new wallpapers. The native resolution of the Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a 5G screens is 2340 x 1080 pixels.
Google Pixel 5
The vanilla Google Pixel 5 is coming as the sole 2020 “flagship” from Google this year. The XL role is in a certain way, played by the Pixel 4a 5G, since it has a 6.2″ display. However, Google tries to offer the usual premium feeling with the Pixel 5.
The new handset flaunts a 6-inch display with FHD+ resolution. However, to our surprise, Google is jumping on the high-refresh-rate display trend with a 90Hz panel. This isn’t whopping as the 144Hz like the Mi 10T series released early today. However, it’s a good thing to see Google adopting current trends, since previous rumors were pointing to a standard 60Hz display.
Google Pixel 4a 5G
The Pixel 4a 5G is a refreshed mid-range smartphone with 5G connectivity. It’s a large smartphone packing a 6.2-inch OLED panel with FHD+ resolution. Unfortunately, Google is cutting some corners with a 60Hz refresh rate display.
Under the hood, we have the Snapdragon 765G paired with 6GB of RAM and the same 128GB of Storage as the Pixel 5. Another point where the Pixel 4a is identical to the 5 is in the camera department. it brings the same 12.2MP camera joined by a 16MP ultrawide unit. It comprises a single 8MP snapper on the front-facing punch hole.
The phone also brings Android 11, but the battery is a 3,885mAh. It’s sad to see Google, once again, sticking with the sub-4000mAh battery strategy. The wireless charging is absent, but the 18W fast-charging is present here. The phone isn’t water or dust resistance.
The camera also gets treatment here. We have a main 12.2MP camera with 1.4um pixel size. The secondary snapper is a 16MP ultra-wide angle snapper with f/2.2 aperture and 1.0um pixel size. The setup may not be jaw-dropping for our audience, used to insane and complex camera systems from Chinese firms. However, Google has Google Camera and a set of AI algorithms that will make this phone easily one of the best devices for photography. Google also brings OIS, and finally 4K @ 60fps video recording.
