The Google Pixel 5 was launched on 30 September during Google’s Launch Night Event and will ship from October 2020. In the US, Pixel 5 is available at a starting price of $699 and £599 in the UK. However, the phone is available for pre-order on the Google Store. The phone was launched alongside the Google Pixel 4a 5G. The Pixel 5 is available in 2 colors only, Just Black & Sorta sage.
According to the Pixel 5 specs, it’s clear that the device sacrifices performance so as to cut down the prices but the good thing is that Pixel 5 is a 5G device. This is because the device doesn’t include the most powerful hardware as expected. Most of the features on the Google Pixel 5 are available on the OnePlus Nord 5G which in my opinion makes the Nord a better choice is it offers a lot more for with a starting price of $489. Unfortunately, the OnePlus Nord was not released in the US but an international version is available on Amazon as shown below.
Pixel 5 Specs Overview
If you’re in the US and the UK, you will get the Google Pixel 5 5G with a 6.0 inches OLED FULL HD+ display. The display offers a 90 Hz refresh rate and comes with Corning Gorilla Glass 6. It runs on Android 11. Under the hood, the Google Pixel 5 packs an Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G chipset with an Adreno 620 GPU. It is only available with 128 GB of internal storage + 8 GB of RAM which is weird. At the back the phone sports a 12 MP + 16 MP camera setup and a single 8 MP snapper at the front just like on the Google Pixel 4a. The Pixel 5 5G draws power from a 4080 mAh battery with an 18W fast charging support, reverse charging, and wireless charging.
Just so you know, the Pixel series is considered as one of the most secure smartphones in the world. This is because the phones receive system upgrades and patches once a vulnerability has been detected in the system. The Pixel 5 is also dust, splash and water resistant upto 1.5 M for 30 minutes.
