While Google will be officially unveiling the Pixel 5 and Pixel 4A 5G on September 30, a detailed spec sheet of the Pixel 5 has surfaced thanks to WinFuture. The spec sheet basically confirms all of the initial rumors after renders of the phone surfaced. Here’s almost everything you need to know about the Pixel 5:
- Goodbye telephoto camera. Instead of a long-range shooter like the Pixel 4, Google is equipping the Pixel 5 with a 16-megapixel f/2.2 ultra-wide-angle snapper. The main camera remains the same as its predecessor at 12-megapixels, and the same goes for the selfie snapper.
- Hello punch-hole. Aside from a slight bump up in the display at 6-inches, Google is implementing a punch-hole on the Pixel 5. That also means it is dropping the 3D depth sensor and Soli Radar—the latter giving mixed opinions. You still get an OLED panel and 90hz refresh rate, though it is not yet clear if the latter means a consistent 90hz refresh rate all throughout.
- Loads of RAM. While we know that it will be powered by a Snapdragon 765G processor, Google is being more competitive with the Pixel 5, equipping it with at least 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage.
- Huge battery. Even with a compact size, Google is equipping the Pixel 5 with a sizeable 4080mAh battery. Aside from 18w wired charging and 10w wireless charging, the Pixel 5 will reportedly have support for reverse wireless charging.
- It’s not going to be cheap. WinFuture said that the Pixel 5 will start at 629 Euros, which translates to around Php 35.7k. That is expensive for a phone with a Snapdragon 700-series processor and a dual rear camera setup. European prices are usually higher, so expect US pricing to be more palatable.
