Yet there was apparently some truth in these reports, as Google has said Pixel 5a is only available in the United States and Japan.
Pixel 5a will be released in August
Rumor factories have been relatively quiet about the budget phone of late, and there is also no evidence that it has come into production. It is not typical from a device that is just over a month away from release.
Fortunately for Google Pixel fans, the company hasn’t rejected the release, like Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman says Pixel 5a will be announced in August. It will be on the shelves in the same month.
For reference Pixel 4a was revealed August 3, 2020 and released August 20. It was available in the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Singapore, Spain, and Taiwan.
Rumor has it that the Pixel 5a is a slightly updated version of Pixel 4a 5G largely the same core data. This may have something to do with the flagship Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, which are supposed to be this year’s real big releases and seem to be one of the best Android phones from 2021.
Phones seem to get Google’s undivided attention. They are rumored to have not only a redesigned design and an improved camera system, but also an internal chipset. They are expected to be in the last quarter of the year.
