We still don't know when the Pixel 4a is going to launch, but while we wait for it, the rumor mill has moved on to the Pixel 5.
New renders that claim to show the Google Pixel 5 have surfaced today. Shared by xleaks7 and Pigtou, the renders aren't official ones from Google but have been made based on CAD drawings.
The design shows a device that's similar to the Pixel 4a. There's a square-shaped camera bump on the backside with dual rear cameras rather than the single cam on the Pixel 4a. Interestingly, there's a rear fingerprint reader, too, a feature that Google dropped on the Pixel 4 and 4 XL to focus on its face unlock.
Around front, there's a hole-punch selfie camera in the upper left corner of the Pixel 5's display, similar to the Pixel 4a. This suggests that Google might be ditching the Soli motion radar that lived in the top bezel of the Pixel 4 and 4 XL. Those Motion Sense gestures that let you control your phone by waiving your hand over it have never seemed to catch on, though, and so it's certainly possible that Google could ditch them and focus its energy elsewhere.
These renders also show a USB-C port on the bottom of the phone along with speaker cutouts. There's no 3.5mm headphone jack to be found here.
Today's report claims that the dimensions of the Pixel 5 will be 144.6mm x 70.4mm x 8.6mm. To compare, the Pixel 4 is 147.1mm x 68.8mm x 8.2mm.
Finally, rumors say that the Pixel 5's spec list could include a 5.78-inch OLED screen and Snapdragon 765 processor. That might frustrate some folks who want a flagship Snapdragon 865 chipset inside the Pixel 5, but opting for a Snapdragon 765 instead could help Google keep the price of the Pixel 5 down.
There's been no word on when the Pixel 5 might be officially introduced. All four previous generations of Google Pixel flagships have been announced in early October, though, and it's likely that the Pixel 5 would follow that trend.
What do you think of its rumored Pixel 5 design?
