At less than a year after the release of Pixel 4, Google seems determined to fix its mistakes of the past. Even though it was officially a flagship, that smartphone was considered faulty by plenty of people. Pixel 4 had less battery life capacity than some entry-level phones, a small display of only 5.7 inches, weak updating system, and so on.
With Pixel 5 expected to arrive to the market by the end of September, it grants us a lot of hope that we haven’t seen the last of what Google can offer in the smartphone field. Android Central brings fresh leaks to us about what the upcoming flagship of the Mountain View-based company is made of, and we’re glad to present them to you.
The integrated Snapdragon X52 modem supports 5G connectivity, and it was practically mandatory for a Google phone released in 2020. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor is another highlight, as it has an octa-core CPU in a 1+1+6 configuration. There’s a 1 ARM Cortex-A76 CPU core clocked at up to 2.2GHz, 1 ARM Cortex-A76 CPU core clocked at up to 2.4GHz, and 6 ARM Cortex-A55 CPU cores clocked at up to 1.8GHz.
Google Pixel 5 will also be featuring 8GB of RAM, most probably LPDDR4X. This will grant a lot of possibilities for using the phone in more demanding ways than usual, along with the powerful processor: high-end gaming, video editing, or even programming for advanced apps could be done while using a Pixel 5.
Google’s upcoming phone is also expected to possess a dual-camera setup, and the secondary camera will be a lens of wide-angle. The cameras will display photos and videos on the OLED display that measures 6-inches and has a refresh rate of 90Hz.
Therefore, we should expect from Pixel 5 a significant progress compared with Pixel 4, although it may not be really spectacular.
