In its typical style, we see that the Google Pixel 5 has already had a bunch of its specs leaked. Not to mention, we even got to know the time frame it may be coming out and other insider information. Now, in an article from WinFuture, we get a rundown of all the specs that prospective buyers should look forward to.
Google Pixel 5. This is it. All technical specs of the new #Android11 "flagship" feat. SD765G, 8/128GB, 12.2+16MP/8MP cams, 4000+mAh battery and 5G #Pixel5 #GooglePixel and the first official pics: https://t.co/YAvnjseRf2

According to the article from the German website, we see details on the screen, the battery and cameras found on the device.
Starting off with the display and the Pixel 5 would come with a 6-inch front panel. This would be the only size available though as Google plans on releasing only one model this time around. The panel would have 24-bit colour support with HDR. It would top off at FHD+ resolution. The display offers a better screen to body ratio since the sensor have been removed and the fingerprint sensor is on the back.
Google would be taking a different route with this model as it would not be aimed at the “flagship” class. Coming with a Snapdragon 765G, it would be a transitionary phone between the mid-tier and the flagship models out there. Perhaps Google realised that like Apple, they can give performance gains with software integration. This would also allow it to have a 5G modem built into the device. It would be paired with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.
Google’s cameras are always the big selling point. This time around, Google does something to capitalise on that. With an additional Ultra-wide sensor with 107 degrees of view, the new camera setup would offer a complete package for mobile phone photographers. The main sensor would be a 12.2 MP one, quite similar to the one from previous year. It would have OIS and dual-pixel AF – yes like the one found on Canon cameras.
Lastly, to run all of this, the company would be adding a 4080mAh battery. This would be good since Pixels have been known for terrible battery life. It still seems a little underwhelming considering that the device supports 5G and would need all the battery gains that it can get. What was even more underwhelming though was the inclusion of fast charging. The fast charging is capped at 18W, something that is just sad. In a world with WARP charging and VOOC charging, there is no room for slow “fast” charging.
