Google Pixel 5: Here’s everything we know about Google’s upcoming smartphone so far
Google will be hosting a special event on September 30. At its upcoming event, the company is expected to launch its next generation premium Pixel 5 smartphone alongside a Nest smartspeaker and a new Chromecast. Ahead of the launch, numerous reports have detailed what we should expect from the Pixel 4 successor when it launches later this month.
For starters, word is that the company is making major changes to its Pixel 5 lineup. The phone is expected to come with 5G connectivity. This would make the Pixel 5 Google's first 5G-enabled smartphone. In addition to this, the upcoming Pixel 5 is also expected to get a faster 90Hz display. Also, Google is expected to ditch the top thick bezels in favour of a punch-hole display. This indicates that the upcoming Pixel 5 may come sans the famous Soli radar chip that was the highlight of the Pixel 4 smartphone that was launched last year.
Coming to the specs, the Pixel 5 smartphone is likely to get a 6-inch OLED display along with IP68 certification. It is likely to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G chipset with X52 modem for 5G connectivity. Google is not likely to ditch a more premium Snapdragon 865 or Snapdragon 865+ processor. The phone is tipped to get 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage space.
On the camera front, the Pixel 5 is likely to get a 16MP+12MP camera setup at the back and an 8MP camera in the front. It is expected to be backed by a 4080mAh battery that is coupled with 18W USB Type-C fast charging technology. The phone is expected to be made using recycled aluminium and come in Black, White and Green colour variants.
