Google has announced an event for its upcoming Pixel 5 and Pixel 4A 5G smartphones on September 30th and teased the phones themselves. But a new leak from WinFuture revealed the best look of the new flagship Google Pixel 5, along with nearly all of its specs.
As rumored, the Pixel 5 reportedly has a Snapdragon 765G processor, complete with Qualcomm’s integrated X52 modem for 5G support, although WinFuture says only support sub-6GHz 5G. That’s surprising, given that Verizon (which has historically sold Google’s flagship smartphones) requires mmWave 5G support for its network — there are plans for a unique Verizon exclusive variant with extra support.
The screen is an OLED panel measuring 6.0 inches 2340 × 1080 in an aspect ratio of 19.5: 9 with a refresh rate of 90Hz. It also has a hole-punch selfie camera to match the recently released 4A. Google also seems to have shrunk the bottom.

Primarily absent: a radar-based Motion Sensor array for gesture control and in-screen fingerprint scanner. Google is sticking with a standard, rear-mounted option, although WinFuture doesn’t have any pictures of the back of the device to share yet. Rounding out the specs are 8 GB of RAM, 128 GB of internal storage, a 4,080mAh battery, IP68 waterproofing, and 18W USB-C fast charging.
Of course, given that it’s a Pixel phone, the biggest feature will likely be the cameras. Google is once again featuring two sensors: a 16-megapixel wide-angle camera and a 12.2-megapixel telephoto, although it’s expanding the field of view of both. The wide-angle now has a 107-degree FoV, while the main camera now shoots at 77 degrees. The front-facing camera is similarly an 8-megapixel sensor (the same as last year’s Pixel 4 lineup), but, as is usually the case with Google, if there are any big improvements, they’ll likely come in the software side of things, not the hardware.
Google expected to fully announce the Pixel 5 and Pixel 4A 5G on September 30th, alongside a variety of other new products, including a new Google TV-based device and a new Nest smart speaker.
