The other details revealed are that Pixel 4a and 4a 5G will sport a bigger display than Pixel 5. This points to the possibility of Google using Pixel 5 to compete with the plain jane iPhone 12 or the Samsung Galaxy S e series. More importantly, Google has decided to ditch the soli radar feature and going for the traditional fingerprint scanner instead.

Now in terms of pricing, expect the 4a to cost much below the iPhone SE 2020, while the Pixel 4a 5G costs more because of the improved features, putting it close to price of the SE. So you can expect the Pixel 5 to be the most affordable flagship Pixel phone from Google. This marks a big change in how Google wants to position its hardware series.
