In a research blog post published today, Google outlined the HDR+ with bracketing advances on the Pixel 5 and 4a 5G. The business has included a guide to a gallery showing the camera technology, which includes a screenshot captured by the Pixel 5a 5G.

Here's a sample of the Pixel 5a camera that Google accidentally made public


In the Google Photos details panel (and EXIF data), the phone's model is simply "Google Pixel 5a." The handset that is fully replaced is the “Google Pixel 4a (5G).” This may indicate that the term "5G" is just a marketing ploy and that no standard non-4G "5a" phone will be published.

Otherwise, the photo was taken on October 1, 2020, with an ultrawide angle lens set to f/2.2 (thanks, Cstark). A street with many cars and pedestrians is depicted in this scene, which was captured from an elevated footbridge. We know we're in Taiwan because of the movie theatre, which is where Pixel creation takes place. The 5a is expected to keep the same dual-sensor array and support HDR+ in the main camera with bracketing, Night Sight, and Portrait Mode.

To dispel rumors of its cancellation, Google made the life — and naming — of the 5a 5G official two weeks ago. Since then, we've learned that the phone will be powered by the same Snapdragon 765G processor. It's supposed to be similar in appearance to the 4a 5G, but much larger, heavier, and thinner. The same 6.2-inch monitor can be used, with a hole-punch sensor and a thicker bottom bezel.

Here's a quick connection to the Pixel 5a photo in Google Photos, which will most likely be deleted or have its metadata cleared shortly.

The remaining images in the gallery all have EXIF data from current phones (4, 4a 5G, and 5), but there is one screenshot that is device-free and maybe from the Pixel 5a camera. It's noticeably newer, having been released on February 16 of this year.
