Plenty of Google fans were disappointed by the Pixel 4 smartphone released back in October, but now they can finally feast their eyes on what the upcoming Pixel 5 is made of. Google’s upcoming phone has its specs finally revealed by GSMarena, and we can dive straight into analyzing them.
The first difference that pops out is the 5G capability. Google couldn’t possibly avoid this, as the 5G connectivity is the new and necessary trend in the tech world. We also have to emphasize the battery life capacity of Pixel 5. While Pixel 4 disappointed everyone with its only 2800mAh battery, its successor proves that we haven’t seen the last of what Google has to offer in the smartphone field. Pixel 5 packs a 4000mAh battery with fast charging at 18W.
Still a small display
Pixel 5 has a 5.8-inch AMOLED display packed with a resolution of 1080×2340 pixels and a refresh rate of 90Hz. The device is covered in Corning Gorilla Glass 3, and it runs on Android 10 like its predecessor. The octa-core Qualcomm SDM765 Snapdragon 765G (7 nm) processor stands out as well, and together with the 8GB of RAM, it represents a powerful configuration for more demanding processes than the usual ones.
As for the cameras, they’re still pretty small and efficient. There’s a dual camera on the rear of Pixel 5 that packs a 12.2 MP lens, and an ultrawide of 8MP. The front camera is only capable of 8MP. As its predecessor, there are also 4K video recording capabilities on the Pixel 5.
Google keeps the precedent formula of not making available the possibility to insert a card slot in its flagship. While this may be considered as a shortcoming for many people, the truth is that a card slot can slow down a smartphone. And after all, why would you need a memory card for a phone that’s already packed with 128GB of internal storage?
Price reveals are not available yet for the Google Pixel 5 smartphone, but we can expect this to change pretty soon.
