Alongside the Pixel 5 unveiling, the company also launched the 5G version of the Pixel 4a. Not only does the new phone offer 5G, the Google Pixel 4a 5G also changes a few hardware specs as compared to its older, and lower priced sibling.

The Pixel 4a 5G comes with a larger 6.2-inch 2340x1080p OLED display, and you get the Snapdragon 765G under the hood as compared to the Snapdragon 730G in the Pixel 4a.

You will also get the same 6GB RAM + 128GB storage on the Pixel 4a 5G, but there’s a larger 3,885mAh battery on board. Notably, unlike the Pixel 5, the Pixel 4a 5G doesn’t support wireless charging, reverse wireless charging, or an IP rating for that matter.
