The last time we reported about the upcoming Pixel 5 was about the Snapdragon 765G that it’s going to bring. This time, coming from popular leakster @Slashleaks on Twitter, we get a good view of Google’s 5G phone in a finish that seems to be sandstone-like. On top of that, Android Central reported several key specs of the Pixel 5, as well as the prices and the release date for the 5G version of Pixel 4a. A few days later, we have another set of actual live images of the Pixel 5 and the Pixel 4a 5G. At this point, Google is going to take home the crown of the “most leaked” smartphone in 2020.
Taking a look at the renders, it seems like they’re accurate from what Google teased before. The smaller Pixel 5 features a textured, rough finish that looks a lot like OnePlus’ sandstone case. A fingerprint scanner can also be seen, along with the square-ish camera module carrying three lenses and a dual-LED flash. Contradictory to the renders, Android Central said that there are two cameras — the typical main sensor and an ultrawide, presumably replacing the telephoto lens from Pixel 4. Much like the Pixel 4a, the selfie camera is housed in a pinhole cutout on the top-left corner. But as you may have noticed, the bezels are a bit thinner here. Pixel 5 is expected to feature a relatively small 6″ OLED display, with 90Hz in tow. It’s also said to pack at least 8GB RAM and a “considerably larger” battery than the rumored 3080mAh. The latest leak apparently confirms 4000mAh and 3800mAh for the 4a 5G. Additionally, support for 5W reverse wireless charging and 15W wireless charging is to be expected.
The Pixel 4a 5G, which will also come with nearly the same spec sheet as its bigger sibling, will launch around the end of September or the first week of October. The claims indicate a $499 price tag. As for Pixel 5, it’s yet to be known, but expect it to be more expensive.
