smartphone in October and the company will start taking pre-orders for the smartphone from October 8. Now, ahead of the official launch, the smartphone was spotted on a benchmarking website AI-Benchmark. The listing revealed some of the specifications of the upcoming smartphone.
As per the listing, the Google Pixel 5 will not be powered by a high-end processor. Instead, the smartphone will be powered by mid-range Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G chipset paired with 8GB of RAM. This is the same processor that the OnePlus used in its recently launched smartphone OnePlus Nord. So, it is expected that the smartphone will not come with a hefty price tag.
Google has already confirmed that it will launch the Pixel 5 and the 5G version of Pixel 4a together in October. The company has also confirmed that none of the smartphones will be coming to the Indian market. Google said, “Regarding the two new 5G Pixel phones that were announced globally today, these will not be available in India or Singapore, based on a variety of factors including local market trends and product features. We remain deeply committed to our current Pixel phones and look forward to bringing future Pixel devices to these countries.”
Recently, Google launched its affordable Pixel 4a smartphone in the US and the device is up for pre-order on the Google Play Store. The smartphone will start selling in the country starting August 20. The company launched the smartphone at $349 which makes it $50 cheaper compared to last year’s cheapest phone.
Google Pixel 4a
