Google has raised the curtain on Pixel 4A 5G and Pixel 5. They are the first smartphones of the Mountain View giant to support the new network standard. The presentation did nothing but confirm the rumors circulated in recent months. As expected, Big-G has not adopted Qualcomm’s flagship processor for its flagship and has only targeted its first 5G devices for a few markets. Let’s find out the technical characteristics.

There is just a few more options to take advantage of different hardware components such as the fingerprint reader or reverse charging, in the case of the Google Pixel 5.
