A record last week proposed that the US-based tech giant has dropped the launch of Pixel 5a. Google denies the report now by saying that the Pixel 5a 5G exists and will launch soon. Prominently, the previous week’s news discussed the Pixel 5a. Now, Google goes a step ahead and confirms the 5G version of it entitled the Pixel 5a 5G.
Though the matter doesn’t seem extensive, it is still causing troubled Pixel 5 devices to be minimized to Widevine’s L3 status rather than the Widevine L1 what validates to allow for HDR and HD playback for Netflix among several other things. The issue appears to be provoked by the current April security update for the mobile. Nevertheless, it is still not clear if the two are combined.
Three- Level System Implementation:
Widevine – a Google DRM service used by various premium streaming organizations, including Netflix, Disney Plus, Google Play Movies, and Amazon Prime. The content is highly secured using a three-level system.
L1 is the most secure and assures that all content processing and cryptography are managed within a trusted execution condition on the device’s processor. L2 devices execute only cryptography operations. Simultaneously, L3 machines do not do any content processing or cryptography operations in the chipset’s secure area.
Nonetheless, current market metrics saw a clear shift. More smartphone releases have targeted the price range of more than 25,000/-. A recent report by The ET alleged that Google is set to focus on the Indian market, beginning with increasing the upcoming Pixel 5a 5G smartphones. Such plans are known to change following global market movements.
Saying that, we can expect Pixel 5a 5G to launch in India simultaneously as previous year’s Pixel 4a. We may take a look at a launch period of October for the forthcoming phone.
Stay tuned for more updates!!
