This year Google is likely to take two unprecedented steps: Pixel 4a will release at the very attractive price, as well as significantly reduce the cost of Pixel 5 is compared with the Pixel 4. The survey discovered in the Google app Opinion Rewards, prompts users to answer what Pixel they would like to purchase: budget, for $349, or a high quality device for $699. Among the distinctive features of a more expensive smartphone are dust proof and wireless charging.
It is easy to guess that device for $349 Pixel is 4a, but for $699, the company will likely offer customers the Pixel 5. Interestingly, the flagship smartphone of the new generation could cost $100 cheaper than its predecessor. Recall that the value of Pixel 4 at the start of sales was $799. According to rumors, the decline in the price of a new flagship device can be realized by abandoning the flagship platform Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 and install a cheaper chipset Snapdragon 765G. It is likely that more expensive model, the conditional Pixel 5 XL will still be the flagship chip.
In addition, previous leaks indicate that the Pixel 4a and Pixel 5 will lose support functions Active Edge. Perhaps this feature will be replaced by touch sensitive back panel. In any case, this technology was reported in the beginning of the year.
