Both the Pixel 5 and 4a 5G make it plenty clear that they have next-gen network capabilities, but they lack support for standalone 5G (SA) at this moment in time. While that’s not a big deal right now as most US carriers exclusively rely on the non-standalone tech (NSA), it could prompt some compatibility issues as carriers move to reduce their dependence on 4G LTE for fallbacks. Fortunately, we understand that the two pricier 2020 Pixel phones will get support for 5G SA through a software update next year.

We also covered that the advanced Assistant can even power voice typing in Gboard. After a brief period of a wider rollout, it appears that Google is halting the update again and reverting back to the old voice typing experience for many.
