The newest Google smartphone will come in just one color: black. If you find that a bit too boring and would like a pop of color, you should consider getting a case for your new phone. 

According to a separate announcement by Google focused on the Google Pixel 5a case, it will come in four different colors: Maybe Moon, Likely Lime, Partially Pink, and Black Moss. 

The smartphone case is made from shock-absorbing materials that are also sustainable. Per the announcement, "the inner layer of the cases for the Pixel 5a with 5G is made from 75% post-consumer recycled plastic, and in total, each case is composed of over 34% recycled plastic by weight."

The case for Google Pixel 5a is likewise available for pre-order and is priced at $29.
