That said, the Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a 5G will not be launched in India due to “variety of factors including local market trends and product features,” per Google. The handsets will only be made available in select markets. The vendor is yet to confirm the specifications of the phones; however, as per AI Benchmark site discovered by MySmartPrice, the Pixel 5 could be powered by Snapdragon 765G chipset instead of flagship Snapdragon 865 SoC. This will be paired with 8GB of RAM, which is the most in a Pixel smartphone till date.
The Pixel 4a 5G, on the other hand, could come with the same core specifications as the regular Pixel 4a smartphone. The only noticeable difference between the two phones could be 5G. The Pixel 4a, to recall, ships with a 5.8-inch full HD+ OLED punch-hole display and Snapdragon 730G SoC ticking at its core. The handset is equipped with 6GB RAM + 128GB internal storage and runs Android 10 OS out of the box. The Pixel 4a has a single 12MP camera with OIS and LED flash at the back, while the front camera sports an 8MP snapper selfies and video chats. There is a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner for security. Lastly, the phone houses a modest 3,140mAh battery and supports 18W fast charging.
