Google Pixel 5 leak reveals design and specs


Next week Google is hosting an event to introduce new Pixel phones, but a new leak has revealed most of the details of the new Pixel flagship early.

The Google Pixel 5 has leaked out today, including images that show off the design of the device and specs that let us know what’s inside. The renders show a device that’s similar to the Pixel 4a that launched recently, including the hole-punch display, but the bezels around the screen do appear to be a bit smaller on the Pixel 5 than they are on the 4a.

Moving to specs, today’s leak says that the Pixel 5 features a 6-inch 2340×1080 OLED display with 90Hz refresh rate. It’s powered by a Snapdragon 765G processor, which means 5G support is in there, and there’s 8GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, and a 4080mAh battery, too.

There’s said to be two rear cameras on the Pixel 5. The main one is a 12.2MP cam with Sony sensor, f/1.7 aperture, and dual pixel phase detection autofocus, while the other is a 16MP ultra-wide camera with 107-degree field of view. The selfie camera is an 8MP hole-punch cam.

We’re told to expect NFC and Bluetooth 5.0 in the Pixel 5, as well as 18W wired fast charging as well as wireless charging. Reverse wireless charging is said to be supported on the Pixel 5 as well, letting you recharge other Qi-enabled devices using your Pixel 5. Finally, the body of the Pixel 5 is reportedly made of 100 percent recycled aluminum, and it’s got IP68 water and dust resistance.

And then there’s price. Today’s report says that the Pixel 5 will start at €629 in Germany, where the Pixel 4 and 4 XL cost €749 and €899, respectively. There’s no word yet on US pricing for the Pixel 5, but the Pixel 4 and 4 XL cost $799 and $899 here, so the Pixel 5 could be under $700 when it’s available stateside.

As for T-Mobile availability, while T-Mo skipped the Pixel 4a it did launch the Pixel 3, 3a, and 4 series phones. And so because the Pixel 5 is a new Google flagship and it supports 5G, we could see T-Mobile carry it. The good news is that Google’s event is next week, so we won’t have to wait long for the Pixel 5 to be made official.

    If this thing sells for $650-700 I think it’s a great deal with everything that 90% of people need and water proofing as well.

    • Shaun Michalak

      You think that 90% of the people will “need” the features of this?? Considering that about 17% of all customers still use 3G for service?? And the people that do have 4G phones.. How many of them do not live on their phones, and only use them for talk or text?? After all, you think T-Mobile came out with $15 plans with limited data because there was no market for it?? I would guess the “need” to be more like 20% at most, and the “want” to be more like 50% after that.. After all, I can not honestly say that I know very many people that have even just 4GB of ram on their phone, forget about 8GB of ram.. and MicroSD cards more then make up for the lack of space to be needing 128gb of space on a phone.. Most people I know are fine with 32gb of storage space..

      • Robert Alverson

        On my LG G7, the system takes up 19 GB, and apps take up more than 17 GB. 32GB may be the absolute minimum one could give a new Android phone. I wouldn’t buy one with less than 64GB, even if it had a SD card slot.

        • Bklynman

          Yes I agree with u. With only 32 gigs,tablet,phone will never get update. The new Lg tablet Tmo is selling has 32 gigs,only 10 is available according to Phone Arena. I compare it to Samsung 2014 Note 10.1 that came with 32 gigs.

        • Shaun Michalak

          I would guess it would all come down to just how much there is there with apps.. The Revvl 4, with android 10 on it only uses 8gb of storage from the factory..

        • Nate

          I agree… in this day and age why are we making anything under 128GB really? I’d rather have a plastic backed phone thats IP68, 128GB and no SD slot than one with 32-64GB.

        • Shaun Michalak

          WOW.. I know mine is not the newest phone out there.. It has android version 9 on it.. but total use of storage space on my phone is only 9.64 gigs.. and that is with all apps updated too.. But of course would be lower if I took off all the apps that I have installed on it, and cleaned it up.. It makes me think that it is not the OS taking up all the space, but all the apps installed on it.. Because that phone came with android version 9, just like what I have on my phone.. But your use, with the same OS, is double what mine is with apps installed?? Something does not seem right here for you to say it uses 19gb just for the phone.. I would say 17 gigs for the phone OS and apps would be more precise then 19 for the OS and 17 for the apps.. that comes up to 36gb of storage used for apps and OS..

        You clearly misunderstood what he was saying. He said this phone would cover 90% of all people’s needs, not that 90% of people need this phone. Big difference & I would argue that the number is even higher than that.

        You kind of got your panties in a bunch over nothing.

        • Shaun Michalak

          Well then if you go that way, I can not name a person that this phone would not meet their “needs”..

        • g2a5b0e

          That’s okay. I can. Someone who needs more than 128GB of space. There you go.

        • Shaun Michalak

          You tell me one person that “needs” 128gb of space.. Tell me what exactly they are putting on a phone that “needs” 128gb of space.. because games are not a need.. A true professional photographer will be using a camera, not a cell to take pictures.. Selfies do not count as a need.. So yea, please explain what you would “need” 128gb of space for, that does not includes “wants”??

        • g2a5b0e

          I don’t, but understand for just a minute that because you can’t fathom why someone needs that much space, doesn’t mean they don’t. Your needs don’t reflect everyone else’s. You take this stuff way too seriously. It’s just phones, dude.

        • Shaun Michalak

          I am not taking it too seriously.. I am just pointing out that most people do not “need” hyped of phones.. Most people can do with lower end phones then what they have, but go to more higher end ones just because they can.. Just look at TV’S.. People get 60″ TV’s all the time.. Do they need one that big.. Especially when they are in a room that is only 15 feet long?? Nope.. But they get it because they want it, and because they can.. That is all that there is to it..

      The Pixel 5 looks great but the OnePlus 8 is $700 with much better specs but a much worse camera and no wireless charging. I’m thinking Google better be a bit more aggressive and go with $599 for it to be a hot item. At the price I’ll own it day one. The OnePlus 8 T is also releasing this fall so the regular OnePlus 8 will fall in price too.

  • Walter Kowalski

    Punch hole is the worst design. Can’t wait for under screen camera sensors to become more popular.

    • steveb944

      I thought popup was the solution but only OnePlus dabbled and now LG.

  • Jim Mill

    Why wouldn’t they put the 865 5g in it like the one plus 8 5g I have one plus 5g it is awesome and T-Mobile has lots 5g every where

    • dcmanryan

      That’s what they’ve done up until the Pixel 4 and they’re not selling many phones so they’re now going for the mid market. If they put the SD865 in the Pixel 5 it would be a $900 phone that no one would buy.

  • killjoytre

    so I guess they’re getting out of the high end flagship game…
