What are the main features of Pixel 5?
The Pixel series by Google hasn’t always been very successful, though they have been very popular for having perhaps the best camera software paired with relatively weak hardware, and a clean user interface that comes directly from the manufacturer of Android.
Google Pixel series haven’t had the spotlight they deserved ever since the original Pixel. Its been a great launch when you talk about IT Support Services making impact each year.
Google seems to be going in a different direction now, with the Pixel 4a and the now-announced Google Pixel 5’s launch.
Features of Pixel 5 you need to know about:
Here is everything you need to know about the main features of Pixel 5 – the company’s newest flagship:
The Pixel 5 does not come with flagship hardware this year, but still features a very competitive processor, RAM and storage, especially when you consider the phone to be more of a camera phone.
It seems like Google is embracing the Pixel lineup to focus solely on cameras and bring a better-quality camera to a more market-competitive segment.
Pixel 5 is powered by a Snapdragon 765G processor, the strongest 700 series Snapdragon processor to date, which is almost 15-20% faster in CPU department, and 30 to 38% faster in the GPU department, than the 730G that was used in the two-month-old Pixel 4a.
It comes in only a single variant. The 128 GB non-upgradable storage and 8 GB of RAM, which is perhaps a little odd considering this is their flagship model. What is disappointing is the fact that the Pixel 5 still uses UFS 2.1 storage, which is considerably slower than the UFS 3.0 or even the UFS 3.1 that this year’s flagships are using.
The main upgrade has been in the camera department and the Pixel 5 is finally equipped with a 16 MP ultrawide camera. The battery size has been upgraded to a respectable 4080 MAH through 18W fast charge. It’s a great revolution when you talk about IT Support Services.
The “killer” features
We have separately compiled a list of the killer features of the Pixel 5 that we think are things you will love about the upcoming phone:
- Has a 90 Hz refresh rate HDR10+ OLED panel with a screen-to-body ratio of almost 85.9% and supported by a small punch-hole camera to one side of the phone. The 432 PPI density is nothing to write home about but is still better than many flagships of last year. It is also protected by the latest Gorilla Glass 6.
- Are water and dust resistant with a rating of IP68, which means that it can survive in 1.5m of water for 30 minutes without dying.
- Comes with Android 11 and will always be the first phone to get new Android updates directly from Google as soon as they are released.
- Much more features for camera modules like high-resolution time-lapse photos while recording a time-lapse video, 4K videos at 60 FPS, different types of software stabilisation and considerably better picture quality through both front and back cameras.
Personally, the Pixel 5 is a phone that you should buy a year or so after it has been released, mainly because it has an aluminum build frame that will last many years with everyday usage and because Google supports all Pixel devices for 4 years with its software updates. The phone is expected to be available in the United States for $699 or in Europe for around €630 and various first-party retailers from October 15th.
