Google Pixel 5 specifications (expected)

Google's upcoming Pixel 5 is expected to feature a 6-inch OLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate. The phone was earlier spotted on AI-Benchmark website running Android 11. Under the hood, the Pixel 5 is expected to be powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G SoC, paired with 8GB RAM. The phone may come with 128GB of onboard storage.

The Google Pixel 5 is expected to sport a dual rear camera setup placed inside a square-shaped module. The setup may feature a 12.2-megapixel main Sony IMX363 sensor and a secondary 16-megapixel Sony IMX481 shooter with 0.5x wide-angle lens. For selfies and video calls, the phone may feature an 8-megapixel Sony IMX355 snapper placed inside the hole-punch cutout at the front.

The phone is expected to pack a 4,000mAh battery with 15W Qi wireless charging support, as well as 5W reverse wireless charging. In a recent leak last week, alleged images of the phone surfaced online with the information screen on the phone referring to it as Google Pixel 5s. This suggests the Pixel 5s could support mmWave 5G connectivity. It is yet to be seen if Google unveils both the Pixel 5 and Pixel 5s at the event on September 30.
