We now officially know the specs of the company’s latest smartphones and their Canadian pricing and availability, with the Pixel 5 costing $799 and launching October 29th. On the other hand, the Pixel 4a 5G costs $679 and launches November 19th.
The Pixel 5 is clearly Google’s 2020 flagship offering, though it doesn’t necessarily offer top-of-the-line specifications. The device features 5G connectivity, a 90Hz refresh rate, a 4,000mAh battery, wireless charging and a cool looking ‘Subtle Sage’ colour variant.
The Pixel 4a 5G also offers 5G connectivity (it’s in the name), a larger 6.2-inch screen, 6GB of RAM and the same primary and ultrawide cameras available in the Pixel 5.
The Pixel 4a has the smallest 5.8-inch screen, and it lacks 5G connectivity but comes with an attractive cost of $479 CAD.
With all this in mind, which smartphone are you most interested in? I personally would pick the Pixel 5 due to its wireless charging and 90Hz refresh rate. I also really like the new Subtle Sage colour. That said, the Pixel 4a is definitely attractive given its lower price tag and the fact that it offers a lot of the same features as the Pixel 5.
