Google Pixel 5

Pixel 5 is an Android smartphone from the Google Pixel product line, serving as a successor to the Pixel 4. The phone was officially announced on September 30, 2020, alongside the Pixel 4a (5G), and will be released in the United States on October 29, 2020. This is the first flagship smartphone in the Pixel lineup not to feature an XL version.

Design and hardware

The Pixel 5 is constructed using a “100% recycled aluminum enclosure” and Gorilla Glass 6 for the screen. The device is available in Just Black and Sorta Sage colors, both of which have a matte finish. The housing has a thin coating of plastic, while the power button is anodized with a metallic finish. The bottom of the device has a USB-C connector which is used for charging and audio output. It has stereo speakers, one of which is an under display unit with the other speaker located to the right of the USB-C port. The back houses a capacitive fingerprint reader, which was removed on the Pixel 4.

The Pixel 5 uses the mid-range Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G system-on-chip (consisting of eight Kryo 475 cores, an Adreno 620 GPU and a Hexagon 696 DSP), with 8 GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 128 GB of non-expandable UFS 2.1 internal storage. Also used on the Pixel 4a (5G), the Snapdragon 765G allows for standard 5G connectivity; both “sub-6” and millimeter-wave (mmWave) networks are supported.
