There are a lot of speculations and rumours about Pixel 5. Even though the next flagship device is still way off, countless leaks have emerged, highlighting what we might expect. We have decided to compile all the leaks and practical info that have shaped the Pixel 5. Here are some of the most useful information you should know about the next Google device.
• Bold design
• U-shaped camera bump
• Smaller sensors
• Most likely OLED display
• Better refresh rate
There are only a handful of leaked rumours about the Pixel 5 look. It seems that we are getting a complete revamp in terms of design. The latest concept shows a unique aesthetic with a daring camera feature.
On the front, it closely resembles the Pixel 4. The bezel is slightly slimmer and refined. The edges appear curved while the screen seems to be completely flat. That’s because the touchscreen has most likely been tweaked with better sensors to prevent false touch detection, as we would often get with the older versions.
But, when you take a look at the back, the first thing you will notice is the latest camera module. We are getting a triple-camera array with a refined module. The unique part about it is that the camera bump is U-shaped. You will either love it or hate it.
• Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G
• Reverse wireless charging
• 8GB RAM
Because of the success of the Pixel 3a, the company might go for a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G for the newest addition. It comes with 5G but is not as expensive as other high-end hardware.
It’s possible we could be seeing a drop in performance from some of the more expensive phones, but this device has plenty of potential compared to the high-end models. Though it is a mid-range processor, it is perfect for gaming and fast rendering.
The reason Google might be going for this processor is for the price. Most likely, their goal is to make an affordable model with excellent spec. If that’s the case, this smartphone doesn’t need any unique tweaks. So far, it’s perfect for aiming at mobile games.
Rumour has it; we are also getting reverse wireless charging, which could come in handy. Of course, there is no confirmed info yet, but it seems to be going the right direction.
Now, about RAM. If you’ve followed the Pixel models, you know that RAM memory was never their strongest suit. Even though there is no official information yet, Google might be raising their standards from 6GB to 8GB for Pixel 5. Some of their competitors indeed have way above 12GB, but it’s still a big change from the older models.
Release Date and Cost
• Could be revealed in October 2020
• More affordable than Pixel 4
All the older Pixel models were revealed in October, which is why we might be getting an announcement this October 2020.
The company will most likely host a Google event like they usually do before popular releases. If that’s the case, we have a few months before we get some info on the actual release date. However, there are no official announcements as of yet.
When it comes to price, rumours suggest we will be getting a cheaper model. The company may shift their strategy slightly to fit the current economic state. In other words, we might be looking at a more affordable option than the older models.
In a nutshell, there is still plenty of time left to get some reliable information. We would most likely hear some official info by the end of June. Until then, we have to wait and see what the device has in store for us. From what we can tell, it’s quite the surprising model.
