Google's Pixel 5 And Pixel 4 (5G) Spied In Live Photos, Full Specs Allegedly Leaked
In the image above, the Pixel 5 is allegedly the smaller device on the left, while the Pixel 4A (5G) is on the right. It's rather peculiar that the Pixel 4a (5G) is the larger of the two, but from what we can tell, both have two cameras on the rear like the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL. Unfortunately, there are no live shots of the phones from the front.
However, based on leaked renders that we've already seen for the Pixel 5 -- and new ones below that shows that Pixel 4a (5G) -- the front of both smartphones look very similar to the mid-range Pixel 4a, including a hole punch selfie camera in the top left corner of the display. Other similarities with respect to specs include Qualcomm's mid-range Snapdragon 765G, a 16MP (Sony IMX481) wide-angle camera, 12.2MP (Sony IMX363) main camera, 8MP (IMX355) selfie camera, and a rear optical fingerprint sensor. Interestingly, despite the fact that the Pixel 5 will be Google's 2020 flagship smartphone, it will reportedly include a plastic body just like the Pixel 4a and Pixel 4a (5G).
Despite the design similarities, there are some key differences between the Pixel 5 and the Pixel 4a (5G). The former is now rumored to include a 6-inch 90Hz OLED display, while the latter is expected to stretch the display to 6.2 inches while keeping a standard 60Hz refresh rate. While both smartphones are expected to include Qualcomm's mid-range Snapdragon 765G, the Pixel 5 will come with 8GB of RAM, while the Pixel 4a (5G) will offer just 6GB. Another difference involves the battery: the Pixel 5 is now rumored to include a 4,000 mAh battery, with 3,800 mAh being reserved for the Pixel 4a (5G).
Two other items worth noting are that the Pixel 5 will reportedly have 15W wireless charging support along with 5W reverse wireless charging -- the Pixel 4a (5G) doesn't have wireless support. Likewise, the Pixel 4a (5G) will include a 3.5mm headphone jack, while the Pixel 5 won't.
Google has already informed us that the Pixel 4a (5G) will be priced at $499, but failed to give us a price for the Pixel 5. However, given the differences between the two smartphones, we think that it could be possible for Google to hit a $599 price point for the Pixel 5. If that is indeed the case, the company could have a winner on its hands.
