Hardware specs confirmed for the Pixel 5, including 90Hz display and a larger battery

August 24, 2020

It will also have 5G.

In the same that Google’s cheaper Pixel 4a launches, we’re now getting more details about the company’s latest flagship, Pixel 5. Aside from the leaked image renders (courtesy of @OnLeaks) of the upcoming device that is now circulating online, Android Central has published details about the device specifications of the flagship.

The Pixel 5 will sport a 6-inch 90Hz OLED-based display and will be powered by the Snapdragon 765G processor with 5G connectivity. No details as to why Google chose a mid-range processor for a flagship device, but hopefully this can drive down the cost. There’s also 8GB of RAM, more than the 6GB offered by the Pixel 4 last year, and 128GB of storage, which looks like the only option being offered.

Just like the Pixel 4, the Pixel 5 will also have a dual-lens camera at the back. This time, the telephoto lens is being swapped by an ultra-wide lens. The smartphone will also support wireless charging and reverse wireless charging. A fingerprint scanner is also located at the back, and it looks like Google is ditching the motion sensor introduced on the Pixel 4.

Of course, it will run Android 11 out of the box, along with the usual bells and whistles that come from a Google flagship device. More details should be revealed in the next few weeks as Google is also gearing up for the launch of Android 11.
