Pixel 4a is Launching in India on October 17: Google Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5 were an active part of the rumour mill for quite a while now. And yesterday during the Night In event, Google has finally unveiled these two devices and also announced their release dates and prices. Unlike last years Pixel 4, the Pixel 5 is not a flagship device as expected. Pixel 5 is more of an upper-midrange device with Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G, 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of onboard storage which is not expandable.
On Pixel 5, there is an IP 68 water resistance and like last years Pixel, you will not find any hand gesture sensor or any groundbreaking hardware tricks for that matter. Moving on, Pixel 5 brings the wireless charging to the table and also comes with 18W fast charging support. Again, nothing’s fancy here. And if you are a Pixel 4 user in the past, you will find no difference with cameras as the sensors here are just same with 12.2 MP primary rear camera coupled with a new 16 MP ultra-wide sensor.
