The Google Pixel launch schedule has been just a little bit everywhere this year – which we are able to perceive, given the state of the world – however code noticed in one of many newest Google cellular apps suggests that we’ll have a Pixel 4a, a Pixel 4a 5G, and a Pixel 5 before 2020 attracts to an in-depth.
Some diligent digging by 9to5Google revealed mentions of the fashions within the beta model of the Google Search app for Android, along with some inner codenames – giving us a robust trace that these are the telephones on the way in which.
If this is certainly Google’s last Pixel product list for 2020 – and if its plans change additional down the road, it would not be the first time – then that means no greater XL model of both the Pixel 4a or the Pixel 5 is coming this year.

• The OnePlus Nord is near with us
• Ideas from a year with the iPad Pro
We’re additionally intrigued by the addition of a Pixel 4a 5G model – presumably, that means the extra reasonably priced telephone is going to return with both 4G and 5G variants, whereas the Pixel 5 will solely be out there with 5G (the name fits, after all) – but it’s laborious to make certain going off the data within the app.
To 5G or to not 5G
Studying between the traces and the codenames, and going off its earlier analysis 9to5Google suggests that each the Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5 are going to make use of the identical, barely sub-flagship, 5G-enabled, Snapdragon 765G – not the top-of-the-range Snapdragon 865.
That is one thing we had been already anticipating for the Pixel 5, however not essentially the Pixel 4a 5G. Presumably, the Pixel 5 and the Pixel 4a 5G will be completely different in different methods – the construct high quality maybe, or the rear digicam setup. The other phone, the Pixel 4a, is more likely to be the usual mid-ranger that we have heard so a lot about over the last few months. That might be the follow-up to the well-received Pixel 3a, which was formally introduced again in May 2019, and it’s rumored to be arriving for $300-$400 with a Snapdragon 730 chipset.
The Snapdragon 730 would not support 5G, so the 5G model of the Pixel 4a would wish a spec to spice up – this phone could be the one we noticed some leaked images of not too long ago, initially believing it to be the Pixel 5. Let’s hope Google units the report straight sooner rather than later.
