Google's Pixel 4a finally launched last week after a months-long delay, and is a solid entry in the mid-range smartphone market. The Pixel 4a offers a compelling mix of an excellent camera, good display, respectable battery life and a budget-friendly price tag of $349. However, Google has yet to reveal its Pixel 5 flagship and has only confirmed that it will be coming this fall along with the Pixel 4a (5G). But that hasn't stopped the Pixel 5 from showing up at AI Benchmark, and its appearance confirms previous reporting that we've featured on the smartphone. According to the AI Benchmark listing, the Pixel 5 is rocking a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G SoC and 8GB of RAM. For... Read more...
Well, it has been a remarkably short run for Google's Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL smartphones, as the company confirmed this morning that both Qualcomm Snapdragon 855-powered devices have been discontinued. This is frankly an odd move from Google considering that the previous Pixel 2 and Pixel 3 flagships were on sale for roughly 18 months following their introduction -- the Pixel 4/Pixel 4 XL are being given the boot after less than a year. Google's actions are even more perplexing given that the replacement for the Pixel 4 series -- the Pixel 5 -- hasn't even been officially revealed, and is on track to arrive in the fall. “Google Store has sold through its inventory and...

A new rumor is making the rounds that claims the Pixel 5 will have a massive 6.67-inch display with a 120Hz refresh rate. The rumor originated with Ross Young, an analyst and insider within the display industry. It's important to point out that Young doesn't specifically say the screen is for the Pixel 5, but it's unlikely that the upcoming Pixel 4a (5G) will get such a massive display upgrade. According to the analyst, the display will be manufactured by Samsung, and a bump to 120Hz would be a significant upgrade compared to the Pixel 4's 90Hz display. If the rumor is accurate, it would also allow Google's Pixel 5 to compete on more even footing with flagship devices from Samsung and others... Read more...
Google today announced the availability of its long-anticipated (and very late) Pixel 4a budget smartphone. The device uses legacy 4G LTE connectivity, but comes with a very enticing $349 price tag. However, Google also announced two other smartphones that have been expected based on previous leaks: the Pixel 4a (5G) and Pixel 5. With regards to the Pixel 4a (5G), Google says that the smartphone will launch this fall with a $499 price tag. In other words, you’re looking at a $150 upcharge to go from 4G LTE to 5G technology. The standard Pixel 4a comes with a 5.81-inch OLED display, 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G SoC. We don’t at this point know... Read more...
When it comes to Google's family of hardware products, everything can and will be leaked at some point prior to launch. Last year's Pixel 4 was leaked so far in advance that Google made light of the situation by providing an official render of the device that confirmed the previous leaks. Today, it's time for Google's 2020 family of smartphones to get the leak treatment, and this source is Google's own software. In this case, the leak comes from the Google Search app, which includes references to some interesting unreleased products. The folks from 9to5Google uncovered not only the expected Pixel 4a and Pixel 5, but also the Pixel 4a (5G). If the leak is... Read more...
Back in late June we got a glimpse at what we can expect with the upcoming Pixel 5 family thanks to a few leaked third-party case renders. What was really interesting about the leak is that it appeared to show that Google was moving back to a rear-mounted optical fingerprint sensor instead of the Face Unlock tech that it pioneered with the Pixel 4 family. That biometrics switch-up is seemingly confirmed by the appearance of a new crop of renders of the Pixel 5 from Pigtou. The renders show that the optical fingerprint sensor in centered in the upper half of the back panel. This placement is familiar to those who routinely use a Pixel 3a or Pixel 3 smartphone, and is a break from in-display fingerprint... Read more...
The rumors surrounding Google's upcoming Pixel 5 flagship smartphone family have died down in recent weeks, as the phones have been drowned out by the uncertainty surrounding the Pixel 4a. Well, there is some new news coming to us today regarding the Pixel 5 XL, and it has thrown us for a bit of a loop. Alleged case renders for the Pixel 5 XL have leaked, and they show a device with a 3.5mm headphone jack, which was missing on the current-generation Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL. In addition, we see a smaller, trapezoidal notch at the top of the display instead of the circular cut-out destined for the Pixel 4a. But perhaps the biggest change is the adoption of a rear optical fingerprint sensor... Read more...
We’ve been hearing quite a bit about Google’s upcoming Pixel 4a mid-range smartphone, but not much is really known about its more powerful brother: the Pixel 5. In a report last week, we heard rumors that the Pixel 4a could launch at $349 with base storage of 128GB making it a direct competitor to the new, second-generation iPhone SE. Today, that $349 price point was seemingly confirmed by a Google survey sent out to prospective buyers, which was subsequently posted to reddit. The survey makes reference to a “radically helpful phone” – whatever that means – that has a plastic body and a 3.5mm headphone jack. That is almost certainly referencing the... Read more...
Nearly half a year has passed since Google launched its Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL phones, and the Pixel 4a and Pixel 4a XL are right around the corner. Is it too early to start talking about the Pixel 5? Of course not! And as it pertains to Google's next flagship smartphone series, there is chatter that the next round of flagships might adopt Samsung's Exynos SoC hardware. It is a bit of an interesting situation all around—Samsung itself uses Qualcomm's Snapdragon processors in its Galaxy handsets sold in the US and various other regions, but also sources its own Exynos chips for models in some places. This is the case with the Galaxy S20 as well, which sports either a Snapdragon 865 or Exynos... Read more...
