Google announced the Pixel 4a earlier this month and teased its 5G variant alongside the Pixel 5, both of which are rumored to launch on September 30. Google hasn’t revealed any specs of these smartphones yet, but the CAD-based renders of the Pixel 5 that leaked yesterday revealed its design, and today we get to know more about the phone’s specs.
Citing people familiar with Google’s upcoming phones, Android Central claims the Pixel 5 will have 8GB RAM and 128GB storage onboard and it will be powered by the Snapdragon 765G SoC, which is hardly a surprise since the smartphone was previously spotted on a benchmark database with this chipset. Unlike its 4G counterpart that has a Snapdragon 730G SoC at the helm, the Pixel 4a 5G will also have the Snapdragon 765G under the hood.

The Pixel 5 will sport a 6″ 90Hz OLED screen, which is 0.2″ smaller than 4a 5G’s display, but has the exact same footprint as the Pixel 4a due to smaller bezels. The screen resolution could be FullHD+ for both.
For photography, the Pixel 5 will have a dual camera setup on the back, which will be a combination of regular (wide) and ultrawide angle cameras – the latter being a first for Pixel phones since Google has never used an ultrawide angle lens for rear cameras.
The Pixel 5 was previously rumored to pack a 3,080 mAh battery, which Android Central claims is false. The publication doesn’t have a specific number of the Pixel 5’s cell size, but says that it will be “considerably larger” than the Pixel 4’s 2,800 mAh battery, and the smartphone will support 15W Qi wireless charging and 5W reverse wireless charging.
Google has confirmed that Pixel 4a 5G will be priced at $499, but it gave no clue about the Pixel 5’s pricing. However, we are still over a month away from the rumored launch of Pixel 5 and 4a 5G, so expect to hear more about them in the coming weeks.
