The new Pixel is official
The Pixel 5 is finally official, the new Google phone. Unlike previous years, the brand does not leave us with a high-end range, but rather a more powerful model within the mid-range has been presented, since Snapdragon 765G is used as processor. A chip that we have seen a lot in the mid-range in 2020, which gives good performance, in addition to providing the phone with 5G connectivity, being the first generation of the brand to be compatible.
Device design leaked weeks ago, with a 6-inch size AMOLED screen, which has a perforation in it. It is a design that is identical to that of the Pixel 4a, in addition to saying goodbye to last year’s notch, which was not too popular with users. With this design, the front of the phone is better used, for a more immersive user experience at all times. In this perforation is located its front camera, 8 Mpx.
The Google Pixel 5 leaves us with a large battery4,080 mAh, something unusual for the brand. Thanks to this battery, it should have a good autonomy, especially in combination with the processor used in it. It will have support for 18W fast charging, and they do not leave us without wireless charging. And yes, it will also waterproof.
One of the main doubts with this model was whether or not it was going to have a double camera, since the Pixel 4a came with a single sensor. The leaks that have arrived this summer on the phone already let us see that a double camera was going to be a reality, there were even doubts about whether it would be a triple rear camera, but Google has opted for a double camera in this model.
This time we find a 12.2MP main sensor and 16MP ultra wide angle. A combination with which you can obtain great images, thanks to Google software, which will make this Pixel 5 one of the most prominent phones in photography on Android.

The new Google flagship would arrive at a price of 629 euros in stores, a high price, which could undoubtedly make its journey in the market difficult. Finally, Google has confirmed the price today, in countries like Germany.
