Google makes interesting decisions when it comes to smartphones. Last year Pixel 4 had its standard and larger version (Pixel 4 XL). During the autumn, however, we will probably only see the big one Pixel 5, and nothing more.
Google is not Apple – there will be no small smartphone
Information about the diagonal of the screen appeared Pixel 5 – it will be 6.67 inches. Even with minimal frames, such a device must take up little space in the hand and it is difficult to expect that equipment with such a screen would have a chance to be practical. The rumor has it so this is the only version Pixela, what Google will release at all.
He also had two versions Pixel 3a. Along with the premiere Pixel 4a something changed – the smartphone only got one option, as there was no edition with a larger screen. Google is heading in the opposite direction this time.
At a time when Apple will 100% have its own “baby”, Google says that small smartphones are not good. The 6.67-inch OLED screen that the Mountain View giant ordered for Pixel 5 reveals that we have nothing to dream about a practical, small smartphone.
Pixel 5 specification and price
Google Pixel 5 still shrouded in a light mystery. All information we have about it has been obtained from leaks or guesses.
We know that the device will not get a flagship processor – instead it will get a more energy efficient Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G device and 8 GB RAM. Obviously, the fingerprint reader should return to the back of the device.
Thanks to such treatments, the price Pixel 5 is expected to be about $ 100 lower than that Pixel 4 to start at $ 699. So it seems that Google is deliberately cutting itself off from the premium segment. The only question is whether such a procedure will pay off.
