Google has officially announced the upcoming Google Pixel 5, its latest Android flagship phone. I will be available on October 15.
The Google Pixel 5 will not be revolutionary. Instead, this new generation of Google phones is about emphasizing the unique features that already made the Pixel stand above its competition.
The Pixel 5 will be powered by a Snapdragon 765G processor and comes with an integrated X52 Qualcomm modem for 5G support across any major network, 8GB of RAM, 128GB of internal storage, a 4080mAh battery, IP68 waterproofing, and 18W USB-C fast charging. The phone will also offer reverse wireless charging, and a stronger Corning Gorilla Glass 6 panel.
The display screen is a 6-inch 2340 x 1080 OLED panel in a 19.5:9 aspect ratio, which offers a full edge-to-edge display. The Pixel 5 will lose the 3.5mm headphone jack.
A water-resistant phone that creates quite a splash. The new #Pixel5 has 8 GB of RAM and wireless and reverse wireless charging to use with your Pixel Stand or to charge your Pixel Buds on-the-go.https://t.co/YYzCyiRlDR #LaunchNightIn pic.twitter.com/JB9NVMeWvK

Of course, the best and most important feature of the Pixel 5 remains the cameras. It has two rear cameras: a 12.2MP main camera with a 77-degree field of view and both optical and electronic image stabilization, and a new 16MP ultrawide that shoots at a wider 107 degrees. The front camera is “only” an 8MP camera but now has the option to take portrait mode shots using its Night Sight mode. On the software side, the Pixel 5 will offer a new AI-powered “Portrait Light” mode, a “Cinematic Pan” setting for panning shots, and three new stabilization modes for shooting smoother video.
And the “Extreme Battery Saver” mode promises to help stretch your battery life to up to 48 hours. Incredible for a smartphone.
The Pixel 5 will be available on October 15 for $699, marking a $100 cut from the price at which the Pixel 4 started back in October 2019.
