Google Pixel 5a 5G Launched with Bigger Battery and Water Resistance

Google launched the Pixel 5a on Tuesday, a new affordable Pixel phone that demonstrates the company's commitment to developing new hardware at a variety of price points. It has a few new features over its 4A 5G predecessor, including a slightly larger screen, a significantly larger battery, and an IP67 water resistance certification.

Even if they are little, there are significant improvements to an already excellent midrange phone, and the best thing is that the price has dropped: in the US, it will cost $449, which is $50 cheaper than the Pixel 4A 5G's introductory price. On August 26th, the 5A will be available in the United States and Japan.

The Pixel 5A's screen is somewhat larger around 6.34 inches, compared to the 4A 5G's 6.2-inch display. Despite rumours of a faster 90Hz display, it's still a 1080p OLED with a conventional 60Hz refresh rate. The battery capacity has been increased to 4,680mAh, up from 3,885mAh, and Google claims that it will last for a full day of normal use or two days in Extreme Battery Saver mode. Because of its metal body, the Pixel 5a 5G appears to be heavier than its predecessor which weights around 185 gm, which is a first for a Pixel a series device.

Similarly, Google keeps using Corning Gorilla Glass 3 and the same 8-megapixel front-facing camera hidden behind a punch-hole. The Pixel 5a 5G retains the 12 MP and 16 MP rear-facing cameras from its predecessor, too. The 12 MP and 16 MP rear-facing cameras are also carried over from the Pixel 5a 5G's predecessor.

The rest of the specs are the same as the previous model. The Snapdragon 765G chipset with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage is still present. The phone comes with a rear fingerprint reader for biometric unlocking, an actual headphone jack, and an 18W charger. The phone will come preloaded with Android 11 and will be backed throughout three years by Google's standard OS platform updates and security patches.

The Google Pixel 5 will not be available through any of the major wireless carriers in the United States, unlike the 4A 5G. Instead, it will be available through Google Fi and the Google Store. It will be available in only one colour — "predominately black" — with four colourful case options available separately.

Samsung to Launch Its New Virtual Assistant: Sam

  While virtual assistants have been around for a while, Samsung is expected to introduce a new 3D virtual assistant to the next generation. The company may officially debut this character as 'Sam.' The brand's virtual assistant is currently a 2D character, but when a new dimension is launched, it may return with a new dimension. Like many other firms, the South Korean digital company has officially launched a 2D virtual assistant. The company, however, has opted to produce a three-dimensional variant to take the trend to the next level. The answer is simple: 3D characters are more appealing to the eye. As a result, once Sam arrives, people are likely to forget about Bixby. Although the character is currently two-dimensional, it has experienced a significant transformation since returning to social media. Samsung's new virtual assistant, on the other hand, will feature additional textures, positions, and expressions. The company's goal is to make its virtual assis
