At today's Watch Night In event, Google announced a new Extreme Battery Saver feature for Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5, allowing you to stretch your battery's limits beyond what was previously possible. That's all well and good for early adopters of the new phones, but what about those of us with older Pixels? Luckily, Google has said that Extreme Battery Saver will be coming to existing Pixels in a feature drop "very soon."
The 5G-compatible follow-up to Google's Pixel 4a is now official. Sporting similar internals and the same camera as Google's Pixel 5, the 4a 5G has a bigger 6.2" OLED display, 3,800mAh battery, and even a headphone jack, all in a not-too-big plastic body. It might not have the more expensive Pixel 5's 90Hz display, but it's a big step up from the already amazing Pixel 4a, and it costs $499. We've got all the official specs below.
Google's Launch Night In is in full swing, and the Pixel 5 and 4a (5G) have just been announced. Google is already talking about the latest exclusive features the new Pixel phones will get, among it a new neat Phone app trick: Hold for Me.
