How did Google accidentally reveal Pixel 5a camera details?
In a blog post, Google revealed two image samples that are believed to be taken from the upcoming Pixel 5A smartphone. The blog was intended to explain the features and working of the HDR+ algorithm.

This shows that the company has been working on the smartphone for a while. The Pixel 4A 5G and the Pixel 5 were are announced during the same time. The second image was of a girl standing inside the water. The image was taken on February 16, 2021. Since the second image is void of the EXIF data, it might be taken from a Pixel 5A prototype.
One of the leaked images taken by the Pixel 5A smartphone was taken down by the company. Since the EXIF data related to the image was already public so withdrawing the images would hardly make any difference.
