Rumours about the Pixel 4a (5G) and Pixel 5 have been rumbling on since Google teased them when it released the Pixel 4a, but the FCC has now offered some clarity about the two upcoming smartphones. Google has already confirmed that both smartphones will support 5G, but it seems that there are at least three versions of the Pixel 5 that the company will release in the US.

The six Google smartphones that Google has certified are the G025E, G025H, G025I, G6QU3, GD1YQ and GTT9Q. The Pixel 4a has the model number G025J, so it would seem likely that the G025E G025H and G025I are the Pixel 4a (5G). FCC documentation confirms that these three devices support 5G connectivity, albeit just the 5G NR n5 band that operates between 824-849 MHz. By contrast, there will be Sub-6 and two mmWave versions of the Pixel 5. The appearance of two mmWave models suggests that Google may have a carrier-exclusive version of the Pixel 5 in the works.

Separately, Nils Ahrensmeier claims to have received information about the prices of colours of the Pixel 4a (5G) and Pixel 5. Ahrensmeier stresses that the information is only applicable to Germany, although it tallies with comments made by Jon Prosser last month. Apparently, the Pixel 5 will be available in Black and Green for €629 with 16% VAT, while the Pixel 4a (5G) will start at €499. The latter will be available in white and black. Google has already announced the pricing of the Pixel 4a (5G) implicitly though, so there are no surprises in that regard.
