Backside of the Pixel 5a Has a ‘Rubber’ Feel to It Rather Than the Hard Plastic

According to a source that informed Android Police, the Pixel 5a design looks almost identical to the Pixel 4a 5G in terms of the back panel and rear camera configuration. There also appears to be a ribbed power button, so users will know exactly what they are pressing without looking at the smartphone.

The inner part of the shell shows how the different components will be arranged, and a lot of you will be happy to hear that the 3.5mm audio jack is returning to the Pixel 5a. Another component that was caught on film was the massive 4680mAh battery, and to date, it will be the biggest cell found in any Pixel-branded smartphone. The battery capacity leak was previously reported, with additional findings claiming that the upcoming mid-ranger will cost $450.

The aforementioned price tag will make the Pixel 5a $100 more expensive than its direct predecessor, the Pixel 4a, but there are several upgrades to look forward to that some customers will deem justified. For instance, it will feature a bigger display that is expected to support a higher refresh rate. The Pixel 5a is also said to gain 5G support since the SoC it will have underneath the hood will be a Snapdragon 765G.
