Pixel 4a 5G is one of the most controversial upcoming phones created by Google, and it’s practically condemned to fix the issues of its previous Pixel 4. Equipped with a poor battery capable of only 2,800 mAh, a small display of 5.7 inches, and poor system performance, the Pixel 4 model released last year in October disappointed many Google fans.
But Google Pixel 4a 5G comes to save the day, being one of Google’s first phones that sports 5G connectivity. Pixel 4a 5G was spotted in Geekbench 5, and once again it’s confirmed to bring some impressive features to its users.
Although the chipset wasn’t mentioned, we know that Pixel 4a 5G scores 610 single-core points and 1553 points for multi-core. The most reasonable bet is that the phone is powered by the Snapdragon 765G processor, meaning one of Qualcomm’s best chipsets. The company itself says about Snapdragon 765G:
Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 765G mobile platform unites 5G and AI to power select premium experiences for gamers across the globe, including 5G gaming at multi-gigabit speeds and select Qualcomm® Snapdragon Elite Gaming™ features and support for all-day battery life.
Pixel 4a 5G also runs Google’s latest version of Android (the eleventh major iteration), and it couldn’t be otherwise. The Geekbench listing also reveals a 6GB of RAM for the phone, which is more than reasonable for a 2020 gadget.
Judging by the previous leaks, Pixel 4a 5G will be better than Pixel 4 in many areas. 4a 5G will have a 6.2 inches OLED display and a 3,800 mAh camera capable of 18W fast charging, just to say the least.
If nothing goes wrong, Google is expected to release the Pixel 4a 5G smartphone in less than a week – on September 30. As for the price, it will be an affordable one. Google itself announced within a blog post that the Pixel 4a 5G model would have a starting price of $499.
