The Google Pixel smartphone has apparently been scheduled to launch on June 11. Unsurprisingly, the device will be a new mid-range model, which Google is thought to have called the Pixel 5a.

Jon Prosser has doubled down on his claim that Google plans to release its next smartphone on June 11. Last week, the YouTuber stated that Google would release two devices in Q2 2021, of which a smartphone was one. Apparently, the company will bring a new pair of Pixel Buds to market as soon as mid-April, though.

As for the 'Google phone', Prosser now asserts that this will be the Pixel 5a. Prosser credits a source here, although the Pixel 3a series and Pixel 4a releases suggest that the Pixel 5a would arrive before the Pixel 6.

While Prosser is yet to reveal any details about the Pixel 5a, OnLeaks did last month. As we reported at the time, the Pixel 5a is expected to look like the spitting image of last year's Pixel 4a (5G). Hence, this means that the Pixel 5a will have a 6.2-inch display, a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and a 3.5 mm headphone jack. Additionally, the device will have a single front-facing camera that sits beneath a hole in its 1080p display. The dual rear-facing camera array from the Pixel 4a (5G) will remain too.

There is no news on what SoC will power the Pixel 5a, though. However, current rumours suggest that the Qualcomm SM7350 or SM7325 will be available for mid-range smartphones this year, which should be the successors of the Snapdragon 765G.
