Launched last night, the Google Pixel 4a 5G and Google Pixel 5 have fairly similar specs, including the dual camera system, Snapdragon 765G processor, 128GB of storage and the 5G support. However, the Google Pixel 4a 5G lacks the Pixel 5's smooth display technology, water resistance and wireless charging.

The Google Pixel 5 will have a 1,080 x 2,340 LED screen with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio and a 90Hz display. It'll also sport a 4,080mAh battery and will be Qi-certified for wireless charging. Even more interestingly, it'll be able to wirelessly charge the Pixel Buds when they're placed on its rear panel.
