    It's weird.

    But the a line is like the old Nexus line ... they're fabulous / reasonably priced / the 3a was available at sale prices fast!

    It's like SemVer, honestly...

    This is what you're complaining about and not the ridiculous iPhone names? Lmfao

    More examples:
    • Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G
    • Samsung Galaxy A71 5G UW
    • Samsung :)
    • LG K8 V
    • Yezz Billy 4.7

    What's the problem? In 2013 there was a model called Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE Advanced.

    @Stuxnet equally ridiculous agree

    It's a very descriptive name tbh
    Short, tells me exactly what I want to know about the device
    I don't see what you dislike about it
    So much better than XR Pro Max or whatever the crap iPhones are called (or for that matter, intel processors)

    @RememberMe it's literally no different than if they called it Pixel 4a XL, which is basically what the 4a 5G is

    @Stuxnet yup. though XL was a nice name too. I generally like Google's names, they tend to not go for ostentatious bullshit or stuff that looks like it's ripped from an engineering analysis report.

    Yes, Nokia 1100 sounds better

    I was thinking
    {series} {model no} is good enough

    if we want more information model no can tell that

    Also the new phone should be named
    Pixel 5
    Pixel 5a
    ( like previous version where Pixel 4 and pixel 4a )

    that’s it, it’s known new models has 5G
    It’s a feature.
    Why they are like let’s keep the old name and just add 5G.

    @RememberMe i loved the time when apple was like “you know the name of phone we are releasing,, you guessed it right it’s
    iPhone {a single no}”

    @hardfault they do that because Pixel 5 is a different phone (which just got released). 4a 5G is an extension of the 4a. Not even close to the same thing.
