Google Pixel 5 launch may be delayed

Google Pixel 5 launch may be delayed”

If you love your stock Android-running handsets and don't want to wait until August, yes, August to see Google's thoroughly detailed Pixel 4a mid-ranger commercially released at last, we have some news that's likely to put a big smile on the faces of bargain hunters nationwide.

The Pixel 4a was initially expected to make its debut at Google I/O 2020 before the coronavirus pandemic forced its cancellation, at which point it was delayed to June. In the meantime, the 2019 Pixel 3a is still sitting tight in a quickly emptying field of decent midrange phones with excellent cameras.

As you can tell, this global pandemic has royally messed up every company's plans.

According to tipster Jon Prosser, the Google Pixel 4a is going to be released on 13 July. It seemed likely that Google would show off the phone at its Android 11 beta launch show, but a new leak pours cold water on that theory. With the "Barely Blue" model being pushed way back to October 1. Earlier rumors claimed it would be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 chipset and come with 6GB of RAM, a 3,080mAh battery and a single, 12.2-megapixel rear camera.

Prosser also has some information about the Pixel 5, though this is just a hunch and is based off of the market launch dates for Pixel 4a. This is the lowest price we've ever seen for the unlocked version of the Pixel 3a. His previously published work can be found on TechHive, VentureBeat and Game Rant.
