Google has already confirmed that it will launch Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro smartphones this fall, and they’ll be the company’s first phones to feature a new Google Tensor system-on-a-chip rather than a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. But they’ll also be expensive phones designed to compete with other flagships.

The company isn’t giving up on the mid-range space though. In April, Google confirmed that a Pixel 5a would launch this year. Rumor has it that the new phone will look a lot like last year’s Pixel 4a 5G and that it will have the same processor. But according to a new report from Front Page Tech’s Jon Prosser, it could have a bigger display with a higher screen refresh rate, as well as a slightly lower price tag.

If Prosser’s information is correct, the Pixel 5a will start at $450, which would make it $50 cheaper than the Pixel 4a 5G… but $100 more than the Pixel 4a.

  1. bahaaha if you are running Microsoft anything, you are already trading performance, so who cares! (And the rest is marketing) As for 16 board blade rackmount, nerds be like, I can finally compile gentoo on an Rpi! lol

    I hope that you don’t mind me pointing these out. I figured that it’s better that you get notified than that more people see a typo. Is there a preferred method of alerting you to typos?

    1. You’re right, I’d always prefer somebody let me know sooner than later!

      Especially when it’s something as silly as mistyping the name of my own website 🙂

      Thanks!
