Google Pixel 5 preview


The Pixel 5, like previous Google flagship phones, has been poorly protected against leaks (or perhaps, as CNET’s Lynn La suspect, the leaks are part of an intentional strategy on Google’s part). We have an first look at the design of the Pixel 5 last week, when photos surfaced with details about the new phone’s processor, screen, cameras, battery life and more.

Rumors suggest that Google’s next flagship will feature a hole-punch camera, rear fingerprint sensor (unlike the Pixel 4, which replaced it with Face Unlock), wireless charging and no headphone jack. Not much is officially known about the Pixel 5 other than its 5G support, but leaks suggest a price tag of 629 euros (around $ 735, £ 575, or AU $ 1,035), with color options. including green and black. The phone’s sale and release dates are not yet known.

Google’s new Chromecast streamer (named Sabrina) also attracted a wave of rumors. According to the leaked photos, the device will come with a remote control, a first for the Chromecast family.
