The new details, official press render, official specs of Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a 5G is here. Google has officially announced that the event will take place on September 30th but we don’t have to wait till then because all is here. The Pixel 5 is everything that Pixel 4 wasn’t.
They are taking a big step by moving backwards in terms of the specifications and using a mid-range SoC.
The Pixel 5 is a mid-range phone with google software and an amazing flagship camera. This is your official look to the Pixel 5 with symmetrical bezels on the top and bottom.
The rear camera contains 16 MP wide angle no telephoto lens and a 12.2 MP same old main camera. Surprisingly, it supports 4k at 60fps and 1080p at 240 fps video recording. The selfie shooter got 8 MP shooter with 83 degrees field of view.
Apparently, the pixel 5 will be able to shoot videos 1080p at 240 fps 4k and 1080p up to 60 fps
Biggest improvement of PIxel 5 can be seen in the battery department. Google is using a 4080 mAh battery which is actually quite a lot bigger than the 3700 mAh battery of the pixel 4xl from last year. It also supports 18W fast charging and you also get the charger out of the box.
The front design is massively improved, we have a single punch hole camera, it’s a 6 inch 1080p AMOLED HDR panel with 90Hz refresh rate which is a perfect news. It’s also said to be brighter than last year’s model.
We have two high quality stereo speakers implementation as always google pixel devices are famous for delivering one of the best speaker performances and Pixel 5 will not be any exception. Then we have three microphones along with bluetooth 5.0 and 5G connectivity.
The back design is said to be a combination of matte finish with aluminum size. It’s definitely a lot more premium than the Pixel 4a.
Inside the phone we have Snapdragon 765 5G processor along with 8 GB of RAM which is a perfect combination to give you a smooth performance. Google will be optimizing everything thanks to its smooth pure android 11 goodness.
The mid-range CPU 765 5g can also be found in the Oneplus Nord and is based on 7nm process.
The best part about this chip is that it allows Pixel 5 to be way more cheaper than the pixel 4 from last year and even more cheaper than flagship devices from Samsung and even Apple.
Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a 5G Price
The starting leaked price of the Pixel 5 could be €650 or €699. As for the colors, the information says that we might get black or green colors. Seems like Google has addressed all the failures of last year’s model.
The price, the design, the ultra-wide angle camera, a 90 hertz refresh rate display but this time with a much bigger battery. I feel like Pixel 5 is delivering an excellent value for this price point but if you still can’t afford to buy the Pixel 5 fear not.
Pixel 4a 5G
Google has another great value for money phone coming out and that is the pixel 4a 5G. This one has a bigger size, a bigger battery, same processor as the Pixel 5 which is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 5G chip.
We will get same ultra-wide angle camera as the Pixel 5 for just €499. This makes the pixel 4a 5G the most solid 5G smartphone out there. Of course you miss out on 90hz refresh rate you also miss out on a premium design because it’s going to be all plastic.
The ram on this phone will be 6 GB unlike 8 which will be exclusive to the Pixel 5 model. Google’s current 2020 lineup (Pixel 5 and Pixel 4A 5G) is looking incredible for the value. Drop your thoughts in the comment section below and let me know what are you thinking.
