Google has confirmed that the Pixel 5a 5G exists and it is on track to arrive later this year. Earlier on Friday, several reports suggested Google had ditched plans to make the Pixel 5a 5G due to a global component shortage.
“Pixel 5a 5G has not been cancelled. It will be available later this year in the United States and Japan, and will be launched at the same time as last year’s a-series handset,” a Google spokesperson told Engadget in a tweet. Google revealed the Pixel 4a 5G in September, so the Pixel 5a will be unveiled in the coming months. As a result, don’t wait to learn much about it at Google I/O next month.
However, the chip scarcity would almost certainly have a bearing on the global supply of the Pixel 5a 5G. Due to supply chain concerns, Google intends to only sell the Pixel 5a in the United States and Japan.
