Google is expected to release its Pixel 5 flagship anytime now, as we know from previous leaks that September 2020 will be the date of launch. The phone unsurprisingly runs Android 11 out of the box, and it can be considered a major upgrade for its predecessor, Pixel 4.
Google’s upcoming Pixel 5 smartphone packs 8GB of RAM, a 6-inch OLED display, a 4080 mAh battery, and last but not least: the Snapdragon 765G processor, one of Qualcomm’s best inventions. The company itself praises the Snapdragon 765G processor by saying:
Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 765G mobile platform unites 5G and AI to power select premium experiences for gamers across the globe, including 5G gaming at multi-gigabit speeds and select Qualcomm® Snapdragon Elite Gaming™ features and support for all-day battery life.
Pixel 5 costs $200 more than Pixel 4a 5G
Google confirmed that the Pixel 4a 5G model will cost $500/€500/£500, and now we know from leakster Jon Prosser that the 128GB version of Pixel 5 will be priced at $700. Pixel 5 also has a larger display than the one mounted on its predecessor Pixel 4, and several other improvements. Pixel 5 comes with a refresh rate of 90Hz.
Pixel 5 is also equipped with a dual camera on the rear: a 12.2MP wide lens and a 16MP ultrawide sensor. The 4K video recording couldn’t possibly be absent, and the single selfie camera of 8MP is also worth mentioning.
Let’s not also forget about the presence of the 5G connectivity for Google’s Pixel 5 smartphone. Like any other top phone released by a top brand in 2020, Pixel 5 was practically condemned to feature the 5G technology. Another top aspect of Google’s upcoming device is that it features IP68 resistance for dust and water.
Google’s Pixel 5 phone will only become available in black, and we can’t wait to learn about other features.
