Previously there was speculation that Google could not release or even produce a Pixel 5a smartphone, due to a chip shortage problem.
The news was also followed by a report by Android Central which stated that the Pixel 5a 5G variant was only limited to the US and Japanese markets, and would not be realized in other regions. Meanwhile, the regular variant will slide in India.
In response to that, Google has just confirmed that the rumors about the Pixel 5a cancellation are not true, but confirmed that they are actually preparing to launch a Pixel 5a 5G smartphone.
A Google spokesperson in the confirmation, denied the rumors by saying, “Pixel 5a 5G has not been canceled. It will be available later this year in the US and Japan and announced in line with the introduction of the a-series phones last year, “he said.
The official statement not only confirms the arrival of smartphones, but also reveals support for 5G connectivity on the latest devices. However, it’s unclear if there will be other models that might only support 4G LTE.
It is interesting to see that a Google spokesperson specifically named the US and Japan as the two markets that will receive the Pixel 5a 5G. Last year, the Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5 were only available in limited markets, and it looks like the upcoming Pixel 5a 5G is also experiencing something similar.
Previous reports have also claimed that the Google Pixel 5a will debut in June, but there is no confirmation of that. It’s just that based on a recent report claims that the Pixel 5a might land in India because it has been certified by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS).
So far there is no information about what the Pixel 5a is capable of. The initial leak of this smartphone will look very similar to the Pixel 4a 5G.
And you also need to know, its presence in the Indian market is one of the strategies that Google currently has to strengthen its smartphone market.
So it’s not surprising if Google plans to bring Pixel 5a devices to India, or it could be that more products will be launched in the future.
In fact, according to a statement, after the device is launched which is predicted to occur in June 2021, Google will further explore the possibility of Pixel production in India. The production is intended for sales in the country of Bollywood as well as for export.
