After numerous leaks, the Pixel 5a with 5G smartphone has been unveiled by Google, available for pre-order today for those in the United States and Japan—but not Canada. The Pixel 5 is currently sold out on the Google online store in Canada.

There’s 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage (same as the Pixel 4a), while it comes in one colour: Mostly Black, which has “forest green undertones and an olive-colored Power button.”
The fast-charging adaptive battery is 4680 mAh, larger than the Pixel 5 at 4080 mAh and Pixel 4a at 3140 mAh.
Google also introduces a case for the mid-range Pixel 5a with 5G in four colours, while there’s also a USB-C port, stereo speakers and 3.5mm audio jack like the Pixel 4a.
