On September 30th, Google finally released the Pixel 5 with Android 11 and a starting price of $699. Compared with the previous generation Pixel 4, the upgrade range is very limited, and only the Pixel 5 model is available. Furthermore, the company did not release an “XL” model as it is with previous generations. However, the latest report shows that the Pixel 5 series has a high model. This smartphone is Google Pixel 5 Pro.
According to previous reports, Google’s Pixel series products have undergone significant adjustments this year. Only mid-range models equipped with Qualcomm’s mid-range chip, Snapdragon 765G. were launched. However, there is no flagship model with Snapdragon 865. Recently, popular leakster @Slashleaks posted a real image of an alleged Google flagship. According to the leak, this smartphone is the new Google Pixel 5 Pro flagship. If this smartphone really exists, it is a pity because we are already moving out of Snapdragon 865 SoC.
Google Pixel 5 Pro with an on-screen camera?
The leak shows that the new Google Pixel 5 Pro will use a 6.67-inch display. There is no front camera opening on the top of the screen, and no bangs, water drops, and other designs. This design makes it feel like this smartphone will come with an under-display camera. However, this technology is not quite ready for mass production. As of now, only ZTE AXON 20 5G series uses this design commercially. It is most unlikely that the Google Pixel 5 Pro will use this feature. Thus, we can not fully verify whether or not the Pixel 5 Pro will come with an under-screen camera technology.
As for the configuration, this phone will be using the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 flagship processor. It will have up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. In the camera department, there will be a quad-rear camera setup. Unfortunately, we do not have specific details on the camera sensors. From the “About Phone” page of this phone, we can see that it supports dual SIM.
It is also important to note that some speculations say that the Pixel 5 Pro image is just a prototype. If this is the case, then it may never get to the mass production stage. Even if it does, what we see now may be significantly different from what is mass-produced. The bottom line is that nothing is certain regarding the Google Pixel 5 Pro for now. It is best to take every piece of information on this smartphone with a grain of salt.
