We have to wait for a little over a week before the official presentation of the new generation of Pixel smartphones. Google will unveil the Pixel 5 and the 5G version of the Pixel 4a on September 30. Naturally, the closer the presentation is, the more information about the new products appears on the Web. Today we learned, perhaps, the most interesting thing about the expected devices – their prices.
A new piece of information has been found by leaking product listings from several European retail stores. The lists revealed the expected price tag for the smartphones, color options, storage sizes and a possible release date. For example, according to the UK retail chain BT, smartphones will be released on October 15th.
Pricing is as follows: The Pixel 4a 5G is priced at £ 499 for the 128GB variant, while the Pixel 5 will retail for £ 615. The first one will be sold in white and black, while the “top-end” device will show off black and green colors. Based on the listings, none of the devices will offer a 64GB version.
In Europe, the Pixel 4a 5G will start at € 499 (about $585), while the Pixel 5 will retail for € 629 (about $739).
In any case, there is very little left to wait until the official presentation, so you won’t have to think long about prices.
It is worth to mention that last month, Google has officially launched the Pixel 4a smartphone. As a reminder, the Pixel 4a has a 5.81-inch screen and runs the Snapdragon 730G with 6GB of RAM. The only storage option is 128GB, which is twice as much as last year. The smartphone is available in only one color – black.
The smartphone has the familiar 12.2MP sensor that we saw in last year’s flagship Pixel 4. The fingerprint sensor is located on the back. The smartphone has a 3140 mAh battery, more than previous small Pixel devices. As always, Google plans to update this smartphone for at least three years with the latest security patches. In addition, the phone offers a stock Android experience free of bloatware.
