Google confirmed on Monday that it would be launching its new premium Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro smartphones this fall with a cutting-edge SoC developed entirely in-house called the Google Tensor.
Google Pixel fans who don’t need all of the power and advancements that the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will bring should be happy to know that Google will also be launching a cheaper Pixel model called the Pixel 5A. And better yet, it’ll be available sooner than expected.
According to an exclusive report shared today by Front Page Tech, the Google Pixel 5A will cost $450 and be available for purchase beginning on Thursday, August 26th online and at physical Google Stores. The Pixel 5A is exclusive to the United States and Japanese markets and won’t be sold anywhere else.
Its predecessors, the Pixel 4a and Pixel 4a with 5G, currently retail for $349 and $499 on the Google Store, respectively.
Google Pixel 5a Specifications
- Color: Mostly Black
- Display: 6.4 inch, 60Hz – forced 90Hz
- Processor: Snapdragon 765G
- Battery: 4650MaH

We’ve been told that the device will use the same camera as the Pixel 5 from last year, be IP67 rated, and have a headphone jack. The listed retail price we’ve been given for the Google Pixel 5A is $450 USD. Due to the sources who provided this information, I’m confident that these are finalized details for the device and we’ll be seeing it later on this month.
