Google has already disappointed its Pixel fans in India as it has confirmed the flagship handset won't be arriving here. It has nonetheless, confirmed the existence of the device and has even shown it's side profile alongside the Pixel 4a 5G version, which will launch parallel to Pixel 5 later this year. Although nothing else is known about the product, a Twitter user has posted another piece of information about Pixel 5. The tweet by @ImjustSayingJC states that Pixel 5 handset might just be the XL variant. This means there won't be a less powerful Pixel 5.

The smartphone is also said to feature Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G SoC, which explains the inclusion of 5G connectivity support. This might come as a slight change for Pixel fans as the company has always opted for the top of the line Snapdragon 8xx series chipsets for its Pixel flagship.
