Google Pixel 5 und 4a: all the leaks so far

Caschy’s blog now reported that internal listings of the two devices have already shown up at Vodafone Germany. These listings include an expected date.

According to this information, the “Google Pixel 5 Black” and “Google Pixel 4a 5G Black” should already be available on September 25th, 2020. However, further details, like internal storage, are still missing.

Such information from Vodafone is said to have been “very accurate” before for the Pixel 3. With Pixel 4a, however, things looked different, which is why the information should be treated with caution – not least because of the ongoing Corona crisis.

Pixel 5: alleged prices leaked

The same applies to the alleged prices that have been quoted in the past hours. TechnikNews claims to have found out that the Google Pixel 5 will start at a price of €629 including the currently valid value-added tax of 16 percent.

The price of the Pixel 4a 5G is already known and will be 499 US Dollars according to Google. As a reminder: the Pixel 4 cost €749/$799 last year. For the Pixel 4 XL, at least €899/$899 were due.

The most recent leaks also gave some details about the technical specifications. For example, a battery with a 4,000 mAh is to be used in Pixel 5. The processor is apparently based on Qualcomm’s middle class and the Snapdragon 765G, which is supposed to be paired with 6 GB RAM, is used. The display should support a maximum of 90 Hz. A traditional 3.5 mm headphone jack is not supposed to be available for the Pixel 5, in contrast to the Pixel 4a 5G.
