The Google Night In launch Soon to us, as we expect the Pixel 5 news to finally be unleashed in the world. Follow up Pixel 4a hit the crusherGoogle’s newer, “flagship” already has a lot of critics. Whether you liked the image that you drew from the last few months of the leaks or not, our picture of the upcoming phone is almost complete.
What will it look like?
Both photorealistic and upcoming Pixel 5 renderings have been leaked, with the phone appearing in black and green from almost all angles. Note that the images are for the “Pixel 5s”, but based on what we know now, that name corresponds to the Pixel 5 (or at least a copy of the Pixel 5).
Pictures of the phone have also been leaked alongside the largest Pixel 4a 5G:
Prototype Spotted in the wild, With some people claiming that it might be the Pixel 5, it had a completely different two-tone back design, but it didn’t seem to work.
The frequency of the leaks started to pick up since then Google has officially released the phone with 4a 5G. Previously, @ xleaks7 He posted a few shows based on leaked CADs (via Bigetto) Which showed what we considered a reasonable design and confirmed by more recent leaks.
The industrial design can be instantly identified as a Pixel if you’ve seen Pixel 4 last year, The Pixel 4 aor Leaked offers from
Pixel 4a XL Pixel 4a 5G. The physical configuration of the rear cameras appears mostly unchanged compared to the Pixel 4, despite the flash being moved to the top and the cameras. themselves May be modified – more on that later.

Google is also looking to drop the Pixel 4’s premium face unlock technology, and revert to the tried-and-true and much-loved capacitive fingerprint sensor on the back. And the large bezel-less screen likely means that You won’t have Soli Motion Gestures. We have one of those stylish modern pinhole front cameras, Like the Pixel 4a. Unlike the Pixel 4a, the Pixel 5 might manage perfect frame symmetry as well, including the bottom. (It’s a little point, but I live for these kinds of little touches.)
Details on the body of the Pixel 5. Conflict. Some sources claimed that it will feature an all-aluminum design, while one person had hands-on experience. claimed It “felt” the plastic. Wireless charging usually has problems with metal (hence glass has appeared on phones these days), and based on controversies recently, we’re not quite sure what to expect. Personally, I expect it should have an (recycled, according to leaks) aluminum frame at least, and likely with the same kind of thick textured paint as last year’s Pixel 4 – hence the “plastic” confusion.
One phone or two?
just one. While earlier this spring, we thought “bramble” It might be the Pixel 5 XLThis has since been confirmed by Basem Pixel 4a 5G. (The pixel lineup is weird now.) Depending on the specifications, you are could Think of the Pixel 4a 5G as a larger and at the same time shortened version of the Pixel 5, as they share some interior elements. But Google is putting the name in a different lineup, and the Pixel 5 stands alone.
There might be one obscure exception to this: the phone Probably It comes in different versions With and without mmWave support Based on FCC Listsand he Maybe (But it is unlikely) that Pixel 5s leak It could match a slightly different name for these two versions. However, these can simply be regional or carrier variants. Either way, there won’t be a size bigger and smaller like last year.
what are the specifications?
We know it will feature the Snapdragon 765G chipset – just like the latest one OnePlus NorthAnd the Moto EdgeAnd Vivo X50 Pro. While this means it may not have “flagship” performance like some of the thousands of dollar phones that contain the Snapdragon 865, We are not worried.
Confirm the details which was I dug earlier in the program, Pixel 5 will have reverse wireless charging to pack other devices. The primary camera configuration looks the same (if not identical) to the Pixel 4 last yearBut this time the secondary camera is wide-angle. Google seems to have ditched its telephoto (which I personally prefer over wide angle).
Based on the leaks, Google is also working hard to increase the battery life of its flagship phones – finally. Last year’s Pixel 4 and 4 XL had good to poor battery life, and that kind of bump would be an appreciated change. The same goes for storage, with many sources now confirming that 128GB will likely be the “primary” size as it was for the Pixel 4a.
The Pixel 5 also marks a return to the back-mounted capacitive fingerprint sensor, which brings us to …
What features will you lose against the Pixel 4?
Based on the leaks, we are confident that the Pixel 5 will technically “lose” some features compared to the Pixel 4. With the new screen design that extends from edge to edge, there is no real space left at the edges. That means a leaner design, but it also means we’re missing out on Soli’s Motion Sense and Face Unlock gestures – all those sensors. Need serious spaceHence its Pixel 4-like forehead. Unless Google somehow was able to somehow embed it under the screen and hide that fact at the same time yet (which is basically impossible), you can probably calculate it.
There is no room for all of these sensors.
We’re also pretty sure there won’t be an “XL” version of the Pixel 5. Although the Pixel 4a 5G might fit the bill as an XL variant for some, and have similar specs, Google has put it in a series.
Will it have 5G?
Yeah. The Snapdragon 765G chipset supports 5G networks and the phone’s FCC files display 5G frequencies. However, some models in the FCC do not contain 5G mmWave Support, and there may be slightly different versions of the phone with and without this technology (although it might just be a carrier or regional variants, we’re not sure).
In short, all of this means the Pixel 5 should support 5G networks – if you care. We don’t.
How much will it cost?
Less than $ 700.
that Previous survey Some attribute to Google, asking participants to compare the $ 349 “Google Pixel Phone” to the $ 699 “Premium Google Pixel Phone”. We’ve seen numbers since then ranging between $ 699 and $ 629. At this point, we personally think the drop is more likely, but the $ 699 worth of leaks continue to appear, so we can’t be sure. Either way, it should cost the price or less.
When will it come out?
Announcement on September 30th.
Google revealed that the next hardware event will happen on September 30th (and you can expect our coverage live after that). At this event, the company promises that we will recognize the “new Pixel phones”, all except for the Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a 5G, so we expect to announce the phones after that.
However, Google previously I went out on another date On her French blog, saying pre-orders will open on October 8th. Historically, I was able to pre-order Pixels on their announcement date, so either Google is changing its way of handling pre-orders, and not all regions get them at the same time, or the timeline has changed since this leak. It was this Public From Delay As for Google, so the dates could easily have been changed. We also haven’t seen as many Pixel 5 retailer leaks as we have other products expected to be announced on September 30th, although this isn’t necessarily evidence in itself of anything.
Also note that Google has been explicit that the Pixel 5 He does not come to India or Singapore at all.
