Google is going to launch its next Pixel flagship, Pixel 5 on September 30, 2020.
The invitation is for a virtual event (obviously) and Google mentions that the company will talk about its new Chromecast, Smart Speaker, and Pixel smartphones.
We already know almost everything about Google’s hardware efforts this year.
We know the Sabrina dongle that will likely come with Chromecast and Google TV (yes, Android TV is being renamed back to Google TV), we know Google’s new smart speakers, and of course the Pixel phones are notorious for having them all leaked which way before they start.
Based on leaked renders, we know the Pixel 5 comes with two cameras and a punch display along with a largely recognizable pixel design.
There won’t be any Project Soli hardware on the phone this year, but the renders show a back-mounted fingerprint scanner.
The surprises start under the hood, where Google’s flagship is expected to tie in the Snapdragon 765G instead of a flagship 8-series processor.
That takes some explanation, but hopefully, it’s reflected in the introductory price for the phone as well. Also expected in a 90 Hz display, up to 8 GB of RAM and a 4,000 mAh battery.
The event starts on September 30th at 11:00 AM (that’s 11:30 PM for us in India). Stay tuned until then.
