Mentions a Google Pixel 5a at the moment it seems so silly to know that Google will announce the super-delayed Pixel 4a in a few days. Here, however, we are talking Pixel 5a (probably) for 2021
First discovered on AOSP by 9to5Google, on a code page discussing VPN compatibility with Android Q, we have a comment from a Google showing all Google Pixel devices back through Pixel 2 and which versions of Android they launched with. You can see Pixel 2, Pixel 3 and 3a and Pixel 4 there on, all devices actually launched. Where the fun is shown is as the list goes on with references to Pixel 4a, Pixel 4a 5G, Pixel 5 and Pixel 5a.
These are four devices that Google has not announced or sent yet, so yes, I would say it’s a bit of news. Again, we know that Pixel 4a is coming on August 3rd. We’ve seen references to the Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5, both of which could be launched later this year with a Snapdragon 765 processor. Pixel 5a, it’s new.
We do not get a lot of details about a Pixel 5a here, only the suggestion that it will be launched with Android R (Android 11). It only tells us that it should come at some point in the first part of 2021 before Google can launch Android S (Android 12).
Hi, a new Pixel to track!
