Since 2016, Google has been holding an event in mid/late October in which they launch the latest Pixel phones. There have been some rumors regarding the latest Google Pixel 5 and Google Pixel 5 XL. Pixel and Pixel 2 were launched in San Francisco whereas Pixel 3 and Pixel 4 were announced in New York City. Due to the global pandemic, most likely there won't be a physical launched this year, so instead, there might be some chances of a virtual launch event similar to what Apple did this year.
Release Date and Price
All the previous models of Pixel were released in October by Google, so it is likely that Pixel 5 will be launched around the same time.
Pixel and Pixel 2 were priced at $649 whereas Pixel 3 and Pixel 4 were priced at $799. Based on this trend we might see a hike of $50 in the new Pixel 5 making it a total of $849. But this will only happen if Google uses Snapdragon 865 processor but some rumors suggest that Pixel 5 will be equipped with Snapdragon 765G which will make it cheaper i.e. around $699.
Pixel 5 Specifications
The Pixel 5 and Pixel 5 XL will most likely have a 5.7-inch and 6.3-inch display which is the same as the Pixel 4 series. Coming to the front, it is rumored that Pixel 5 still has a bezel on the top and there might be a chance that we will see a 120Hz refresh rate to complete with the Samsung Galaxy S20 range. On the rear, there might be 3 cameras matching the Apple iPhone 11 Pro.
Google Pixel 5 smartphone will have an OLED display. The screen has a resolution of 1080 x 2280 pixels and 414 PPI pixel density. It has an aspect ratio of 19:9.
There are some rumors that tell Pixel 5 will have Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G chipset whereas some suggest the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor. But there is a chance that Pixel 5 will be equipped with 765G which will make it more affordable but that means no top-notch smartphone for Google this year.
It also rumored that the Pixel 5 Series will be dustproof and will have an IP68 rating. Coming to the biometrics, the Pixel 4 offered face unlock but no fingerprint sensor. It is likely that Pixel 5 will revert to an under-display fingerprint sensor.
