Almost all the details of the upcoming Pixel 5 leak

Just a week away from its official unveiling, more images and details of Google’s upcoming Pixel 5 handset have leaked. The information, courtesy of WinFuture, provides the most detailed look yet at the specifications of the device, including the camera specifics, battery capacity, and more.


Corroborating various earlier rumors, the phone is expected to sport a 6-inch FullHD+ OLED display that supports HDR. The display is said to house a 90Hz high refresh rate panel covered by Gorilla Glass 6. The front-facing camera duties are done by a top-left aligned 8MP unit that sits in a hole punch cutout. There is no under-display fingerprint scanner since the search giant is equipping the phone with a capacitive reader at the back, leading to a much smaller bezel on the front. It is also expected to come with IP68 certification for water and dust resistance.


The back of the device is said to sport a dual-camera setup, with the main unit housing a 12.2MP Sony sensor with an F/1.7 aperture, which also features dual-pixel phase detection autofocus. The pixel size is expected to be 1.4μm. The main camera will unsurprisingly be optically and electronically stabilized. The second unit will reportedly hold a 16MP wide-angle lens with a 107-degree field of view.


As for the internals of the phone, it is expected to be powered by a 5G capable Snapdragon 765G SoC coupled with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The device is said to support both sub-6 and mmWave 5G frequencies. Power to the device will likely be supplied by a 4080mAh battery, which can be topped up using an 18W power adapter.


The report suggests that the Pixel 5 will be offered in Germany for €629 (approximately $736). It has been widely reported that Google’s next flagship will be an upper mid-range phone with modest specifications offering superior camera capabilities. It will be interesting to see how the company pits its offering when it takes the virtual stage next week. The firm is also expected to debut the Pixel 4a 5G for $499 at the same event.

Google Pixel 4a 5G leak makes you wonder: Why not XL?


Today the Google Pixel 4a 5G was revealed in an unofficial capacity in a manner similar to Tuesday’s leak of the Pixel 5. This device may seem like a traditional bump from one iteration of a phone to a (5G) version – but it’s not as simple as all that. Instead, we’re getting a similar name, basically the same software, and the same amount of data storage – and a few kicks in the pants.


The Google Pixel 4a and the Google Pixel 4a 5G are different phones. It should be obvious from the outset – to the point where NORMALLY we’d see a whole new device name when the differences are this significant. Per the outline leak today from WinFuture, it might seem that the Google Pixel 4a 5G is basically what Google should’ve called the Google Pixel 4a XL.


The Google Pixel 4a is the smallest of the bunch with a 5.8-inch display, then comes the Pixel 5 with a 6-inch display, then the Pixel 4a 5G with a 6.2-inch display. The Pixel 4a works with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 SoC, while both the 4a 5G and 5 have a Snapdragon 765G.


It would appear that the Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5 have the same set of cameras both front and back. Leaks this week suggest that the only major differences between the 4a 5G and the 5 are as follows:



Pixel 4a 5G / Pixel 5
• 60Hz OLED, 90Hz OLED
• 6.2-inch, 6-inch
• The chin
• Gorilla Glass 3, Gorilla Glass 6
• 3.5mm jack / nope
• 2 mics / 3 mics
• Polycarbonate / 100% recycled aluminum casing
• 3800mAh battery / 4000mAh battery
• nope / Wireless + reverse wireless charging


So, wait a second here – what’s really great about the Pixel 5 VS the Pixel 4a 5G? They both have 5G connectivity, both come from Google… it’s really about the premium action here. That’s the difference.


While the Google Pixel 5 and 4a 5G have different display panel sizes, they both seem to roll with 2340 x 1080 pixels across said displays. As such, the Google Pixel 5 will have a slightly more pixel-dense panel.


The Google Pixel 4a 5G has no wireless charging at all, while the Pixel 5 has both wireless and reverse wireless charging. The Pixel 5 has the larger battery despite the fact that it’s a smaller phone.


Google will really drive home the point that the Google Pixel 5 is made with a 100% recycled aluminum casing, with IP68 resistance to water and dust. The Pixel 4a 5G has no such resistance, and its case is made of regular old polycarbonate.


It’ll be interesting to see how potential users choose their next device, here. If price will push them to the larger, lesser phone, or if the differences are so few (and so minor) that they’ll choose whatever feels best in the moment.


Otherwise it’ll be all about the cool factor with the Pixel 5 – knowing that, while the differences aren’t particularly massive, you’ve got the best Pixel in the world on release day.


ALSO NOTE: It’s likely because of the Pixel 5’s key selling points (the recycled casing, the resistance to elements, higher image refresh rate), that Google aimed to avoid direct comparisons that’d be made would that the devices were both called Pixel 5 (5 and XL, that is). Now they’ve got an out – the Pixel 4a 5G may be larger, but lesser, but that’s OK because it’s not called Pixel 5 XL!)
