Google that launched Pixel 4a this week is reportedly planning to launch Pixel 5 with a larger 6.67-inch, 120Hz OLED panel.
According to display analyst Ross Young, a new Google Pixel phone with 5G support arriving this year will be equipped with a big display of 6.6-inch and it will be supplied by Samsung Display and China-based BOE.
"Next new Google phone, the 5G version, will be 6.67" from Samsung Display and BOE," Young said in a tweet. The renders of the device also appeared online and at a first glance, the device looked pretty much like its predecessor.
The Pixel 5 is rumoured to be powered by the Snapdragon 765G chipset and may house a large-sized battery. The smartphone is likely to feature a modern punch-hole display, similar to the Pixel 4a. It is expected to arrive with more premium features, IP water rating and wireless charging support.
Google has already teased the Pixel 5 earlier this week, alongside the launch of the Pixel 4a. The company is also preparing to launch the Pixel 4a (5G) later this year.
Accoridng to a BGR report, Google may have chosen the 765 platform over the Snapdragon 865 because the former is more affordable. On top of that, the 765 comes with a built-in modem, while the 865 needs a separate modem chip.
Google has reportedly also revealed the release date of Pixel 4a 5G in an official blog post in France. The post was
"The Pixel 4a (5G) and Pixel 5 will be available for pre-order from October 8, 2020," said the blog post. The mention of the pre-release date has now been omitted from the post.
Google usually opens up pre-orders for its phones on the same day as launch, so 8 October could be the day we see the Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a 5G go official, reports Android Authority.
