After months of anticipation, Google has finally unveiled its latest flagship smartphone – the Google Pixel 5.
The smartphone was unveiled at Google’s Launch Night In event this evening, alongside the Pixel 4a 5G.
The Pixel 5 features thin bezels on all four sides of the screen, with the front-facing camera housed in a hole punch at the top of the screen.
As expected, it has 5G connectivity, as well as 8GB RAM.
Google explained: “5G is the latest in mobile technology, bringing fast download and streaming speeds to users around the world. Whether you’re downloading the latest movie , listening to your favourite music on YouTube Music, catching up on podcasts with Google Podcast or playing a game on Stadia, Pixel 4a (5G) and Pixel 5 will provide you with fast speeds.”
One of the key features is wireless and reverse wireless charging, allowing you to charge other products from the Pixel 5.
Pixel 5 has a new ultrawide lens on the back, allowing you to capture a wider scene in your photos and videos.
Meanwhile, the smartphone has a new camera called Portrait Light, allowing you to take photos with bokeh effect in every lighting condition.
People who are always running out of charge will be happy to hear about a new feature called Extreme Battery Saver, which Google claims can keep your smartphone running for up to 48 hours!
Google explained: “Pixel 4a (5G) and Pixel 5 also have all-day batteries that can last up to 48 hours with Extreme Battery Saver.
“This mode automatically limits active apps to just the essentials and lets you choose additional apps you want to keep on.”
In terms of colours, users can choose from black or mint green
The Pixel 5 will go on sale for £599, and is available from October 15.
