Google on Wednesday detailed its long-rumored (and leaked) Pixel 4A 5G and Pixel 5, making official what was pretty strong speculation (to put it nicely). Today’s announcement also revealed that Verizon’s version will once again cost more than the Pixel 4A 5G offered by its rivals. 

Called the Pixel 4A 5G UW, Verizon’s model runs $600 and follows a trend of some of its other 5G devices in that it’s customized with millimeter-wave antennas to tap into Verizon’s fastest 5G network. Like its other 2020 5G phones, the Pixel 4A 5G will also be capable of connecting to the carrier’s wider-coverage nationwide 5G network when it launches later this year.
