Google just announced its latest flagships, Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a (5G) and at the first glance, the two devices seem quite similar. We compared the two smartphone’s cameras, see what sets them apart here:
Google published the hardware diagrams for the two devices and there is another key difference between the two flagships. The new Google Pixel 5 has its top speaker embedded within the display, below the proximity and ambient light sensor. In contrast, the Pixel 4a’s speaker is located on the top bezel, which is nothing out of the ordinary.
Pixel 5’s under-display speaker is one of the things that made uniform bezels possible. This makes the device a lot smoother compared to the Pixel 4a which has chunky bezels not just because of the top grill but also because of the Motion Sense radar chip and the Face Unlock system.
For Pixel 5, The company is looking to sell 800,000 phones, which is quite a low number for Google to aim for. We think this is just a strategy for the tech giant to increase demand and eventually sell more units, by positioning the Pixel 5 as an affordable premium.
