Mention of a Google Pixel 5a at the moment it seems so unreasonable to know that Google will announce too much delay Pixel 4a in a couple of days. Here, however, we are talking about the Pixel 5a (probably) during 2021, as Google has acknowledged its existence.
First noticed on AOSP by the user 9to5Google, on the code page that discusses VPN compatibility with Android Q, we have a comment from Googler that lists all Google Pixel devices back via Pixel 2 and the Android version they launched. You will see Pixel 2, Pixel 3 and 3a and Pixel 4 there are all devices that are actually running. Where fun appears, the list goes on with references to Pixel 4a, Pixel 4a 5G, Pixel 5 and Pixel 5a.
These are four devices that Google hasn’t announced or shipped yet, so yes, I’d say it’s a bit of news. Again, we know that the Pixel 4a arrives on August 3rd. We’ve seen links to the Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5, both of which could be launched later this year with the Snapdragon 765 processor. The Pixel 5a, well, it’s new.
We don’t get many details about the Pixel 5a here, just the assumption that it will run with Android R (Android 11). This really only suggests that it must arrive at some point in the first part of 2021 before Google can send Android S (Android 12).
Hey, new pixel to track!
