Yesterday we saw the Google Pixel 5 being listed at various retailers in both the UK and continental Europe, ahead of the phone’s official unveiling on September 30. Today, from Germany comes a full specs leak of the upcoming device.
Let’s dive in. As rumored countless times before, the Pixel 5 will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 765G chipset, and not the flagship-grade Snapdragon 865 or 865+. This means lower performance, but also a lack of support for mmWave 5G – only Sub-6 networks will work.
The screen will be a 6-inch 1080×2340 OLED with 90 Hz refresh rate and HDR support, covered with Gorilla Glass 6. The fingerprint sensor is still on the back of the phone, and not under-display.
Shockingly for Google, because it’s never done this before, the Pixel 5 will ship with 8GB of RAM. The base model has 128GB of internal storage.
