Google’s flagship Pixel 5 probably won’t get a ‘flagship’ processor
After the unveiling of theLast week, Google was preparing to launch its flagship product in the autumn. Based on rumors, the Pixel 5 may not be spreading the flagship specs – or at least the processor – that we’ve gotten used to.
The Pixel 5 has Qualcomm’s midrangeAccording to a new listing on the AI Benchmark website cited by various publications. This is a step up from the Snapdragon 730G in the Pixel 4A, but not as advanced as the Snapdragon 855 chipset in last year’s Google Pixel 4 – or any of the previous Pixel phones that used the high-end Snapdragon processors of the 800s. Use Qualcomm series.
Qualcomm introduced the Snapdragon 765G (the G stands for gaming) and the Snapdragon 765 in December as a lower-cost option for phone makers who want a single chip that not only acts as the brain of a handset, but also connects to 5G. It uses the company’s X52 modem, which promises download speeds of up to 3.7 Gbps.
The AI benchmark site list seems to back up previous reports from 9to5Google that almost confirm that the Pixel 5 has the lower end of the range processor. If these rumors surfaced, Google, along with China’s Vivo and Oppo, along with Nokia phone maker HMD, will deploy Qualcomm’s newer midrange CPU.
In addition to the Snapdragon 765G chipset, the Pixel gets 8 GB of RAM, according to the website. Both the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4A have 6 GB of RAM.
Earlier this month, Google confirmed that the Pixel 5 will come with 5G. This makes it the search giant’s first phone (along with the Pixel 4A 5G) to gain access to the next-generation wireless network. The company also announced to CNET that it will have sub-6 and mmWave configurations to provide compatibility with carriers such as AT&T and Verizon. Other unconfirmed features include the ability to instantly launch the Pixel 5 with Android 11, and a black design according to Google’s promotional image.
