Google may launch the Pixel 5a smartphone on June 11 this year, according to a new leak.
Word comes from the increasingly active leaker Jon Prosser, who also claims a new version of the Google Pixel Buds will arrive in mid-April.
Prosser significantly mention the Pixel 5a, but given previous years’ launch cycles, it seems this would be the obvious candidate, especially because the company usually waits until autumn for its flagship launch.
In the past, Google has unveiled mid-range pixel ‘a’ phones around the Google I / O conference in May. June 11 would make sense considering some of the delays considering still for the launches of top tech, due to the coronavirus pandemic. Last year, for example, the Pixel 4a arrived until August.
Possibly already seen some potential leaked images and renders for the Pixel 5a, which look remarkably similar to the current Pixel 4a 5G phone. Rumors have suggested it has a large 6.2-inch OLED display with a selfie-camera hiding in the bezel.

The images suggested the device will have 128GB of storage and 6GB of RAM. Believed to be no confirmation yet, but expecting a Snapdragon 700-series processor to do the heavy lifting. Going not clear whether Google will launch both an LTE and 5G version of the Pixel 5a or whether there is only be a 5G version this time.
We considered how much this would call phone cost, but that may come down to the presence of 5G. The Pixel 4a costs $ 349 / £ 349, while the Pixel 4a 5G costs £ 499 / $ 499.
Our reviewer Max Parker looked of the 4a 5G: “The 4a 5G is a mash-up of both the 4a and Pixel 5 and in many ways that makes it the hardest to recommend. It lacks some of the more ‘flagship’ features of the higher-end model and is missing the downright affordable price tag of the 4a. “
