Since American smartphone manufacturers are less productive than the Asian ones, we could say that revenge is looming if we make a little effort of trying to foresee the near future. The world doesn’t end with Samsung and Huawei, and we will soon get a new proof on that. Both Apple and Google are planning the launch of their new flagships: iPhone 12 and Pixel 5, respectively.
We know that iPhone 12 launches in September if the ongoing pandemic won’t cause any new delay. As for Google’s upcoming flagship, we can’t say that we’re sure of a release date for it other than knowing that it should launch until the end of the current year.
While it’s certain that iPhone 12 will be packing the 5G technology, we don’t have enough reasons to believe that it will also be the case for Google Pixel 5. But considering that 2020 has been a great year for the launch of 5G devices, common sense tells us that Google’s next flagship can’t possibly fall short in this area.
Furthermore, the iPhone 12 is expected to feature a new A14 Bionic processor, which is even better than the A13 Bionic processor made by Apple. And the A13 is considered the best existing processor made by the Cupertino-based giant. On the other hand, Pixel 5 will only use a mid-range 765G or 768G processor.
A survey put out by Google itself says that its premium Pixel phone equipped with a high-class camera, wireless charging and water resistance will sell for$699. It’s an affordable price for a flagship, and it’s significantly lower than the one for the predecessor Pixel 4.
As for the iPhone 12, the upcoming 2020 flagship of Apple is rumored to start as low as $649. The larger iPhone 12 Max would sell for $749
It’s obvious that iPhone 12 wins both rounds until now. But we must admit the obvious: we still have very little information regarding the too upcoming smartphones, but we’re expecting this situation to change pretty soon.
