Yesterday we saw the Google Pixel 5 being listed at various retailers in both the UK and continental Europe, ahead of the phone’s official unveiling on September 30. Today, from Germany comes a full specs leak of the upcoming device.
Let’s dive in. As rumored countless times before, the Pixel 5 will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 765G chipset, and not the flagship-grade Snapdragon 865 or 865+. This means lower performance, but also a lack of support for mmWave 5G – only Sub-6 networks will work.
The screen will be a 6-inch 1080×2340 OLED with 90 Hz refresh rate and HDR support, covered with Gorilla Glass 6. The fingerprint sensor is still on the back of the phone, and not under-display.
Shockingly for Google, because it’s never done this before, the Pixel 5 will ship with 8GB of RAM. The base model has 128GB of internal storage.
On the rear we get two cameras, a 12.2 MP f/1.7 main sensor with dual pixel PDAF and 1.4um pixel size, with OIS and EIS. This has a 77-degree field-of-view. Additionally, there’s an ultrawide cam too, with a 16 MP sensor, 107-degree field of view, f/2.2 aperture, and 1.0um pixel size. On the front, in the hole-punch, there’s an 8 MP camera with f/2.0 aperture, 1.12um pixel size, and 83-degree field-of-view. The main camera does 4K video at 60fps, 1080p at 240fps, while selfie videos will top out at 1080p30.
The battery is 4,080 mAh large, and charges through an 18W brick. Wireless charging is supported too, as well as reverse wireless charging. The Pixel 5 has stereo speakers, spectral and flicker sensors, three mics, dual-band Wi-Fi, NFC, Bluetooth 5.0, LTE, and of course 5G. There’s only one SIM slot, but dual-SIM functionality can be achieved via eSIM.
IP68 water and dust resistance is certified, and the frame is 100% recycled aluminum. The phone will run Android 11 from day one, and in some countries ships with wired headphones in the box. It will be available in green and black, and it weighs 151g and is 8mm thick. It will start at €629 in the Eurozone. Given US companies’ past antics in this matter, expect the US pricing to be $599 to $629.
