Google is likely to pair the Pixel 4a 5G or Pixel 5 with a 6.67-inch and 120 Hz display
Talk of Google smartphones may be focused on the Pixel 4a for now, but the company has already confirmed that it plans to launch the Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5 in the near future. While Google has not confirmed when it will release the two devices, neither have been certified with agencies like the FCC. Hence, the Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5 will not be arriving this month.
However, the founder of Display Supply Chain Consultants, Ross Young, has offered details about the release window and the display of a new large Pixel smartphone. As we have previously reported, Young has previously stated that the Pixel 5 will have a 120 Hz display.
Now, he claims that Samsung Display and BOE will be supplying the panels for Google's next smartphone. According to Young, the device will have a 6.67-inch display, although he unsure whether it is the "4a XL or the 5". Either way, a 6.67-inch display would make it a significantly larger device than the Pixel 4. Young expects the device to support a 120 Hz refresh rate and 5G connectivity, too.
Google's teaser, which we have included above, shows the side of the Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5. Most people have probably assumed that the smaller of the two is the Pixel 5, seeing as it will succeed the 5.7-inch Pixel 4. Likewise, the Pixel 4a 5G is thought to be an XL-sized device, which would make it the larger of the two devices in the picture above. However, if the Pixel 5 has a 6.67-inch display, then the idea of the Pixel 4a 5G being a quasi-Pixel 4a XL would seem unlikely. Regardless, Young expects the 6.67-inch Pixel smartphone to be launched by early October at the latest.
