Google’s Pixel 5a 5G is shaping up to be even more underwhelming than previously expected
Google may have taken the unorthodox step tackle Pixel 5a cancellation rumors frontally a few weeks ago, but apart from the fact that such a 5G-enabled model is planned for a release in the US and Japan “later this year”, we do not know much about the upcoming mid-range.
If a new discovery made by the typically reliable people over at 9To5Google believe it or not, the make and model of the phone’s processor may already be etched in stone. Like the Pixel 5a (5G) design, the chip said well known, further reducing our enthusiasm for an increasingly redundant-sounding product.
No raw speed upgrade for you!
It is, of course, in theory and at first glance because Google could always leverage its software magic to better optimize this year’s stock Android running mid-ranger, thus enhancing the real-world user experience in meaningful ways that cannot be accurately represented by synthetic benchmarks.
All in all, this decision certainly makes sense (and the Snapdragon 765 is not a bad processor by any standard), but something tells us that lots of hardcore Google fans will still be disappointed to hear all this.
How low can you go?
