A new render of the Google Pixel 5 XL has been provided by Jon Prosser. It showcases the front of the smartphone and provides a clearer glimpse at the rear.
When the Google Pixel 4 phones launched in late 2019, we unsurprisingly loved their photo capabilities, but found they fell short in other areas.
This render certainly has a unique-looking design. The phone is reported to keep the same texture finished on both the frames and the rear glass and soft touch. It would be a good idea to go with such a design since Apple and Samsung have square/rectangular camera setups.
RAM : 6 GB
Processor : Octa core (2.84 GHz, Single core, Kryo 585 + 2.42 GHz, Tri core, Kryo 585 + 1.8 GHz, Quad core, Kryo 585)
Rear Camera : 16 MP + 16 MP + 12 MP
Front Camera : 13 MP
Battery : 4000 mAh
Display : 6.3 inches
As for the cameras themselves, there are three on the Pixel 5 render, and one of them (specifically the lower-middle one) is expected to be an ultrawide angle camera. One of the biggest criticisms of the Google Pixel 4 was launching the phone without an ultrawide camera despite all its major competitors including one (even iPhone 11).
In line with previous releases, we'd expect the Pixel 5 and 5 XL to be available at some point in October 2020.
The Pixel 4 series was unveiled on 15 October 2019, and went on general sale nine days later. A similar time frame is expected for the next Pixel flagship.
