Google Pixel 5 image renders appear online and it looks just like Pixel 4
Google typically launched its premium budget Pixel phone in October. However, it is possible that just like the Pixel 4a, which was expected to launch in May, Pixel 5 launch too gets delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Google is expected to unveil its next generation premium budget Pixel 5 smartphone sometime in fall this year. Ahead of the launch, details about the Pixel 4 successor have started pouring in. Now, a new report gives us the first look at Pixel 5's design.
Tipster David Kowalski has partnered with Pigtou to bring first CAD renders of the upcoming Pixel 5 smartphone. The images shared by the tipster hint towards the Pixel 5 smartphone getting a design that is quite similar to the Soli radar chip-powered Pixel 4 that was launched last year.
As per the report, the Pixel 5 is expected to be 144.6mm long, 70.4mm wide and 8mm thick. If this is true, it will be slightly smaller in size compared to the Pixel 4 which is 147.1mm long and 68.8mm wide. It is expected to get a dual rear camera setup at the back with a LED flash that will be housed inside a square shaped black coloured camera module that is placed on the top left corner of the phone's back. There is a Google logo which is placed in the middle of the lower half section of the phone, all of which is quite similar to the Pixel 4 smartphone.

The only change seems to be the presence of a fingerprint sensor that is placed in the middle of the phone's back. This indicates that Google might be planning to ditch face ID in favour of the fingerprint sensor that was a standard in older Pixel phones including the Pixel 2 and Pixel 3 smartphones.
On the front, the Pixel 5 is expected to come with extremely thin bezels and a punch hole display that will house the phone's front camera. The absence of sensors on the top indicates that the company might be planning to ditch the Soli radar chip in its upcoming premium budget smartphone. In addition to that, the phone in the images has USB Type-C at the bottom that is placed between the speaker grille, while the power button and volume rockers are placed on the right side.
Not much is known about the phone's specs at this point. However we do expect the phone to get Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865 chipset. As far as the availability is concerned, Google typically launched its premium budget Pixel phone in October. However, it is possible that just like the Pixel 4a, which was expected to launch in May, Pixel 5 launch too gets delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
