Annually, the Google Pixel lineup stirs up some buzz. The smartphone series consistently trends in tech news. Earlier this year, a tipster suggested that Google intended to cancel the Pixel 5a phone. However, Google officially denied these claims, confirming the launch of the new Pixel 5a smartphone this year.

Google often finds it challenging to keep upcoming smartphone details under wraps. A recent blog post by the tech giant showcased photo samples from the forthcoming Google Pixel 5a, thereby confirming the camera specifications of this eagerly anticipated smartphone. Also Read – Google Android 12 code leaks Pixel 5a 5G chipset details

Within the Google Photos gallery, amidst a plethora of photo samples, two images stand out. These distinct photos, unlike the rest, carry unique EXIF data. Under the device details for these two photos, the handset appears as the Google Pixel 5a.



This confirms that the new Pixel phone will be the only variant released in 2021. Notably, the device name does not include a 4G or 5G tag this year. Consequently, we can anticipate a single, affordable 4G Pixel device in the lineup. Also Read – Google Pixel 5a 5G launched with Snapdragon 765G, 4680mAh battery and much more
