Google announced the Pixel 4a earlier this month and teased the impending launch of two more Pixel phones -- the Pixel 4a (5G) and Pixel 5 5G -- for later this year. The company's announcement was short on other details though. Today, leaker Jon Prosser, who had previously accurately leaked the delayed launch of the Pixel 4a, claims that Google will announce the Pixel 5 5G and Pixel 4a on September 30th.
What we see in the system is— Jon Prosser (@jon_prosser) August 19, 2020
Pixel 5 5G (black and green)
Pixel 4a 5G (black)
- September 30
Pixel 4a 5G (white)
The leaker sees "in the system" that the Pixel 5 5G in black and green colors and the Pixel 4a (5G) in black are coming on September 30, with the Pixel 4a (5G) in white releasing in October. Google France had previously erroneously leaked the pre-order date of the Pixel 4a (5G) and the Pixel 5 as October 8. Thus, it is possible that Google could formally announce the new Pixel phones in late September and then start accepting pre-orders for them a week later on October 8. Once the new Pixels are launched, they will be available in the U.S., Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, France, Germany, Japan, Taiwan, and Australia.
Google had delayed the Pixel 4a launch multiple times this year so it will be interesting to see if any such delays affect the launch of the Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a (5G) as well. However, the company tends to hold its Made by Google hardware event in early October and Prosser's leak fits perfectly with that timeline.
