The next flagship phone from Google may have been leaked online Monday, with a post on Voice showing images and details reportedly of the Pixel 5A. The phone will reportedly sport a 6.2-inch OLED FHD+ display like the Pixel 4A 5G, with a dual-lens camera on the rear and a punch-hole front-facing camera.

The phone will reportedly be taller and less wide than the Pixel 4A 5G, the report from leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer said, and will include a 3.5mm headphone jack and rear fingerprint sensor.

The specs leaked show that so far, the Pixel 5A will be very similar to the devices Google launched in 2020. In a Wednesday update, Hemmerstoffer uploaded a video to YouTube that offered a 360-degree, mock-up view of the reported device. You can check out the rendering below. 

Google didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
