Google Pixel 5 and 4a 5G released: First phones to run on Android 11 starting from ~RM2074
Just a few hours ago, Google has finally unveiled the next Google Pixel batch. As in line with the rumours, the Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a 5G got introduced and will be the first devices to feature the unreleased Android 11. Anyway, here's everything you need to know about the two new Pixel devices.
Starting with the Pixel 5, it seems that there is only the vanilla variant with no XL nowhere to be seen. Its tech specs also fall in the mid-range category, featuring a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G chipset with 5G capability, 8GB of RAM, 128GB internal storage, and a respectable 4080mAh battery with 18W fast charging technology. The OLED display measures 6-inches with FHD+ resolution and supports up to 90Hz refresh rate.
The camera setup is also quite simple, featuring a dual rear camera only that consists of a 12.2MP (main) + 16MP (ultrawide) module instead of the bombastic over-pixel sensors. It's also worth mentioning that this phone is IP68 water and dust resistant and supports wireless charging, as well as reverse wireless charging. Also, the rear fingerprint sensor is visible below the dual rear camera.

Moving on to the Pixel 4a 5G, this phone is interestingly quite similar to the Pixel 5. It has the same SD 765G chipset, 128GB internal storage, 8MP front camera, dual rear camera, 18W fast charging technology, and a rear fingerprint sensor. The difference? The Pixel 4a 5G packs 6GB of RAM instead, a slightly bigger 6.2-inch OLED display with 60Hz refresh rate, 3885mAh battery without any wireless charging support, non-IP68 rated, and it has an audio jack port too.
Don't get your hopes too high for these new Pixel phones to officially launch in Malaysia, but if you're curious about the prices - the Pixel 5 and 4a 5G cost $700 (~RM2903) and $500 (~RM2074) respectively.
