We have seen some unofficial renders of the upcoming Google Pixel 5 leak and with Google’s Made By Google 2020 event next week we expected to see a lot more. Overnight more renders and details have leaked revealing mid-range specs in a premium body.
Winfuture has managed to get their hands on the “official technical data” of the Pixel 5 and as expected it will be a premium mid range phone. As we already know, the Pixel 5 will support 5G but now we know that it will arrive with a 6.0-inch flexible OLED display of 1080P resolution — very surprising given they were one of the first manufacturers to arrive with a 2K display so it is a big step backwards. The display will be in a 19.5:9 display ratio and will support 90Hz refresh rate.
The display looks to be a flat display with a punch hold selfie camera — no Motion Sense here — and unlike just about every other mid range and premium smart phone available will not have the fingerprint sensor under the display. Instead, as we have seen in earlier leaks, it will have the fingerprint sensor on the rear of the device.
We already “know” that the Pixel 5 will be housing a Snapdragon 765G chipset with a directly integrated 5G modem. Alongside the chipset will be 8GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage.
Camera-wise the Pixel 5 will still house a dual lens system but you can be sure the software will be better. The rear dual lens camera system will contain a 12.2MP Sony lens with dual-pixel phase detection autofocus with physical and electronic image stabilisation.
The second rear lens will be a wide-angled (107 degrees) lens with 16MP resolution. In the punch hole at the front Google are including an 8MP lens with an 83 degree field of view.
The 4,080mAh battery will be charged at a maximum of 18W with wireless and reverse-wireless charging included. Other features include a spectral and flicker sensor, two stereo speakers, NFC, Bluetooth 5.0 and will support eSIM.
The body will be covered in glass and aluminium and will be IP68 certified making it waterproof and dustproof. The Pixel 5 is also expected to arrive in the colours green and black. Of course expect many software features yet to be announced to arrive alongside the Pixel 5.
The hardware on the Pixel 5 though is decidedly mid-range so we expect the price to match. Do you think Google have given up in the ultra-premium range or have they just put that and their Motion Sense developments on the backburner while 2020 is as 2020 is?
