Google Pixel 5 key specifications revealed ahead of the official launch
Google Pixel 5 will use Qualcomm’s mid-range Snapdragon 765G chip (for the 5G variant) instead of the top-end Snapdragon 865 or 865 Plus chip. Here is what you need to know about Google’s next flagship phone.
Google is set to launch its next flagship phone Pixel 5 very soon. The new premium smartphone is rumoured to launch on September 30. Ahead of an official release, Pixel 5 details have continued to leak online. Earlier this week, Pixel 5 design got leaked through CAD-based renders. And now, more details about Pixel 5 have surfaced online.
Google Pixel 5 will reportedly launch with up to 8GB of RAM and up to 128GB Storage, reports Android Central. The 5G version of the smartphone will run on Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor. The 4G version of the phone is said to come with Snapdragon 730G SoC under the hood.
The choice of the chipset is rather surprising as Google has used Qualcomm's flagship chips on its premium phones. The SD 765G and 730G chips are found mostly on mid-range Android phones.
According to older leaks, Google Pixel 5 will look similar to the recently launched Pixel 4a series. It will a single punch-hole camera up front for selfies. On the back, it will sport a square-like camera module, also available on the Pixel 4a.
As far as specifications go, Google Pixel 5 is said to feature a 6-inch OLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate. Like Pixel 4, the Pixel 5 is also expected to house as many as two rear cameras. This time, Google may opt for a wide-angle lens for the secondary camera instead of a telephoto lens. Pixel 5 will reportedly feature support for 15W fast charging speed and 5W reverse wireless charging.
According to reports, Google will launch only one variant of Pixel 5 this year as the XL version has been scrapped.
That said, the Google Pixel 5 launch is just about a month away. We're likely to find out more about the phone in coming weeks.
