Pixel 5 might be cheaper than we thought

  Pixel 5 might be cheaper than we thought A new Pixel 5 price leak from Europe says the handset will cost just €629 in the region, while the Pixel 4a 5G will cost €499. The new leak is in line with previous rumors that suggested the Pixel 5 might be more affordable than we thought initially. The Pixel 5 will not be the premium phone we expect, as Google went in a different direction this year, choosing a mid-range 5G chip to power its next major Pixel release. I’ve been telling you how much of a disappointment the Pixel 5 will be this year when it comes to specs. The smartphone might get a premium build, but it will deliver a mid-range performance, thanks to that Snapdragon 765G processor.

The Google Pixel 5 is rumored to launch in a new green color (green-ish? green-like?) in addition to black, but you don’t have to wait until later this month to see what that will look like. That very configuration of Google’s upcoming flagship phone seems to be laid bare in a leaked marketing shot, spotted by WinFuture (via 9to5Google). The phone is face-down on its screen, leaving its rear fingerprint sensor and all-plastic back visible, and both details line up with the rumors so far.

Somewhat unsurprisingly, given how much Google tech tends to leak, this image also serves up yet another look at Google’s Nest Audio smart speaker and its new Chromecast running the refreshed Google TV interface. Both products were recently spotted at retail stores in the US, so not only does this leak seem to be legitimate, but their release is likely imminent. Nice job, Google!

Looking at this one image should get you pretty caught up as to what we’re expecting Google to launch at its next hardware event on September 30th. But to recap, Google’s Pixel 5 is its new flagship phone, and the rumored specs include a six-inch OLED screen, a 5G-ready Snapdragon 765G processor, 8GB of RAM, 128GB of internal storage, a 4,080mAh battery, IP68 waterproofing, and 18W USB-C fast charging.

Google's Pixel 5 includes 5G and an ultrawide camera for $699

  Google's Pixel 5 includes 5G and an ultrawide camera for $699 It’s October, so despite the weird year we’re having, Google is hosting a (virtual) event to show off its latest smartphone, the Pixel 5. And yes, it has 5G connectivity on board. It’s also a lot cheaper than last year’s phone, starting at $699. As usual, plenty of details about the Pixel 5 leaked in advance, and we also got an idea of what to expect from the Pixel 4a, which arrived this summer. The most notable design change for the 4a was its no-notch screen, which included a pinhole front-facing camera. The same style screen is here on the Pixel 5 — as expected, it’s a 6-inch, 2340 x 1080 screen that sits between the 5.7-inch display on the Pixel 4 and the 6.3-inch one on the 4 XL.

The Pixel 5 is said to debut alongside the Pixel 4A 5G, a higher-end version of the Pixel 4A that can connect to 5G networks. The new Chromecast is rumored to include a remote, and unlike previous iterations, it will run the new Google TV user interface instead of simply serving as a device that can cast content from phones to TVs.

We won’t have to wait long to see what Google has in store for hardware for the rest of 2020. It’s hosting an event on Wednesday, September 30th, at 11AM PT / 2PM ET. We’ll have in-depth coverage of the event, and the devices announced during it, on the site, so stay tuned.

The Pixel 5’s ultrawide camera is yet another change of direction for GoogleBut the funny thing about Google’s decision is that it contradicts what the company said just one short year ago at the launch of the Pixel 4. “While wide-angle can be fun, we think telephoto is more important,” Google Research’s Marc Levoy said onstage last October while promoting the Pixel 4’s telephoto lens.
