The Pixel 4a and 4a 5G were released roughly two months apart, so this will not be a common upgrade path. However, the Pixel 4a 5G does offer some perks that are not available on the Pixel 4a. As a starting point, the Pixel 4a 5G brings support for 5G networks. Another reason to consider this upgrade would be the size of the display, the battery, and rear-camera. The Pixel 4a 5G has a slightly larger display, at 6.2-inches, compared to the 5.8-inch display on the Pixel 4a. Both models have support for fast charging, but the Pixel 4a 5G battery is 3,885 mAh, and the Pixel 4a battery is a 3,140 mAh. Both phones have a 12.2MP dual-pixel camera on the back, but the Pixel 4a 5G adds a 16MP ultrawide camera.
