Pixel 5a with 5G FAQs
Where can I order the device?
In the U.S. Pixel 5a with 5G will be available for purchase on the Google Store
and Google Fi
(full price or with the Fi subscription program). In Japan, the phone will be available on the Google Store and from Softbank.

All details on pricing in selected markets can be found at the Google Store
How is the battery life?
Pixel 5a with 5G features the largest battery that we’ve ever shipped in an A-Series Pixel phone at 4680 mAh (2). The Pixel 5a with 5G also has features like Adaptive Battery, which learns your favorite apps and reduces power to the ones you rarely use, helping your battery last all day (3). Another great feature, Extreme Battery Saver, helps your Pixel last up to 48 hours (4) when you really need it, by letting you pick your essential apps and pausing all other apps while still letting you access them when you need them.
How is the camera?
Pixel 5a with 5G features a 12.2MP Dual Pixel rear camera and an accompanying ultrawide lens along with an 8MP front-facing camera. Hardware is only half of the Pixel magic. You’ll find our latest version of HDR+ with bracketed exposures, our fifth-generation stabilization with enhanced motion correction, and Night Sight built into default -- and Portrait! -- modes for amazing results in very low light.
What kind of 5G speeds should customers expect to get on a Pixel 5a with 5G?
While Pixel 5a with 5G is ready to connect and provide 5G speeds and service, we advise customers to keep in mind that 5G service, speed and performance depend on many factors including, but not limited to, carrier network capabilities, device configuration and capabilities, network traffic, location, signal strength and signal obstruction. A 5G data plan is also required (sold separately). See g.co/pixel/networkinfo
(1) Screen and battery size compared to Pixel 4a (5G). Pixel 5a (5G) has a water protection rating of IPx7 under IEC standard 60529. Charger and accessories are not water resistant. Water resistance is not a permanent condition and may be compromised due to normal wear and tear, repair, disassembly or damage.
(2) Estimate of typical capacity based upon testing and expected cell behavior.
(3) Maximum battery life based on testing using a mix of talk, data, standby, and use of other features. Battery life depends upon many factors and usage of certain features will decrease battery life. Pixel 5a (5G) battery testing conducted by a third party in California in early 2021 on pre-production hardware and software, using default settings. Testing conducted on two major carrier networks using Sub-6 GHz non-standalone 5G (ENDC) connectivity. Actual battery life may be lower. (4)
For “All day”: Maximum battery life based on testing using a mix of talk, data, standby, and use of other features. Testing conducted on 2 major carrier networks using Sub-6 GHz non-standalone 5G (ENDC) connectivity. For “Up to 48 hours”: Maximum battery life based on testing using a mix of talk, data, standby, and use of limited other features that are default in Extreme Battery Saver mode (which disables various features including 5G connectivity). Testing conducted on 2 major carrier networks. For both claims: Pixel 5a (5G) battery testing conducted by a third party in California in [early 2021] on pre-production hardware and software using default settings, except that, for the “up to 48 hour claim” only, Extreme Battery Saver mode was enabled. Battery life depends upon many factors and usage of certain features will decrease battery life. Actual battery life may be lower.
