Google announces the Pixel 5 smartphone, know the specs & Availability
Google launched its new Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a 5G phones yesterday on 30 September 2020. The smartphones launched at a virtual event, Launch Night In, by the company where it is also unveiling a new smart speaker and Chromecast.
Google launched the event at 11:30 pm IST, with a live stream being promised via its page on YouTube.
The Pixel 5 price $699, its latest Android flagship. Related to last year’s Pixel 4, Google is concentrating less on dramatic new technology like the much-hyped Motion Sense appearances on last year’s model and emphasizing instead the individual features that then help set the Pixel apart, like its stand-out camera software.
The Google Pixel 5 features a Snapdragon 765G processor very not the top-tier Snapdragon 865 or 865 Plus finished with Qualcomm’s integrated X52 modem for 5G support an advantage of the slightly less powerful chipset.

It’s a difference from the usual Pixel policy, which has attempted to offer similar flagship specs to other top Android devices from companies like Samsung or OnePlus. Still, it also implies Google is offering the new phone at a lower price.
Pixel 5 brings with itself a unique display that is 6.0-inches in size. The panel is OLED in nature and comes with a hole in the top left corner of the screen & a 90Hz refresh rate.
Google is calling out a few points that differentiate the Pixel 5 from the newly announced Pixel 4A, including IPX8 water resistance, reverse wireless charging, extra RAM, and a more durable Corning Gorilla Glass 6 panel. Prominently, it lacks a 3.5mm headphone jack, though, something its more reasonable offer.
The display is a 6-inch 2340 x 1080 OLED panel in a 19.5:9 viewpoint ratio with a 90Hz refresh rate, which highlights a hole-punch selfie camera.
Replacement of the Motion Sense camera and the massive top bezel it needed for its radar array there’s now a completely edge-to-edge display this time, with no cut or bezels. There isn’t even a little chin at the bottom, setting it apart from the cheaper Pixel 4A.
Google Pixel 5 specifications:
Pixel 5 8GB of RAM, 128GB of internal storage, a 4080mAh battery, IP68 waterproofing, and 18W USB-C quick charging. On the 5G front, the Pixel 5 will further support both sub-6GHz and mmWave 5G, which suggests that it should work with almost any major 5G network.
The Pixel 5 has 2 rear cameras: a 12.2-megapixel primary camera with a 77-degree field of view and both optical and electronic image stabilization, and a new 16 megapixel ultrawide that shoots at a more comprehensive 107 degrees.
The front camera, meanwhile, is an 8-megapixel camera, but Google has combined the option to take portrait mode shots utilizing its Night Sight mode.
Pixel 5 Availability:
The Pixel 5 will be available first in eight countries on 15 October, then on 29 October in the US through Verizon, Google Fi, and unlocked from Google’s online store for $699. Preorders are available now.
AT&T will also be allowing the Pixel 5 next to this fall, although it has yet to declare a price or specific release date.
