For what the phone looks like, Google itself has revealed the device’s side profile (see picture at the top of this post) and Google Japan showed most of the Pixel 5 in a recently deleted tweet on September 24th. The translation of the tweet states that the phone is now available for preorder. (Narrator: It wasn’t.)

If you’re familiar with the Pixel 4, you’ll know that the front of the Pixel 5 has a clear difference: the Pixel 5 doesn’t have the big top bezel of the Pixel 4 and the Pixel 4 XL that kept its face unlocked. And motion-detecting radar. It looks like Google is returning to the fingerprint reader on the back of the phone instead, as shown in the render. Reliable Liquor Evan Blass, Which also shows the phone in safe green and black:

Another leak from Winfuture Show more corners of the Pixel 5 and can reveal the specs of the phone. The phone is reported to have a midrange Snapdragon 765G processor with Qualcomm’s Integrated X52 modem for 5G support, but the phone will apparently only support slow Sub-6GHz 5G networks and will not support fast MMW 5G. The Pixel 5 can also have a 6.0-inch 2340 x 1080 OLED screen, 19.5: 9 aspect ratio, and a 90 Hz refresh rate, the last part of which will make your phone easier to use on a daily basis.

In terms of camera, the Pixel 5 is rumored to have two cameras similar to the Pixel 4, but there will be at least one big difference between the two phones: in addition to having the same 12.2 MP main camera that has served Google well for years, the Pixel 5 telephoto Instead of a lens, there could be a 16MP ultra-wide camera.

With the introduction of the Pixel the, Google took to the ground last year with a choice of telephoto lenses. Mark Levoy, a former Google who led the development of computational photography technology in pixel phones, also said, “While wide angle can be fun, we think telephoto is more important. “Google seems to have changed its mind. It is possible that Google will add additional software smarts to its camera, such as the Night Sight and Astrophotography modes it added in previous years.

Leaked specs for the Pixel A A G G indicate that it will have an inch.3-inch screen, making it the largest phone in the Pixel lineup, as the A has an 8.8-inch display and the 5A is rumored to have a 6-inch panel. . (The Pixel 4A 5G’s display will now be between the closed Pixel 4 and 4XL – the Pixel 4 had a 5.7-inch screen and the 4XL had a 6.3-inch screen.) But the Pixel 4A can share 5G. The Pixel 5 has a 2340 x 1080 resolution, which means its pixel density will be slightly lower and the display will look a little less crisp.

The Pixel 4 is also rumored to have a Google Snapdragon 765G processor, 12.2MP and 16MP rear cameras and an 8MP front camera in the 5G – which is a rumor for the Pixel 5. But the Pixel 4 will trade in a few other areas, according to a 5G report, such as a slower 60 Hz refresh rate screen, a smaller 3,885mAh battery, 6GB RAM instead of 8GB, Gorilla Glass 3 screen instead of Gorilla Glass 6 screen, and water. Or no IP rating for dust resistance. The phone is rumored to have a mm headphone jack, however, similar to the Pixel A and its predecessor A.

A new Chromecast powered by “Google TV”

Rumors about a new TV dongle made by Google with the codename “Sabrina” have been circulating for months, but in recent days people (including There are edges Chris Welch) Indeed, by revealing almost everything about the device, the new, obscure Chromecast is able to buy store shelves for 50.

The new TV dongle is called Chromecast with Google TV, and it runs the new Google TV operating operating system (which seems to be a rebrand of Android TV) with its own remote control, unlike any previous Chromecast device. Having a dedicated operating operating system and having a remote is a big change for Chromecast, as previous models relied on users casting content from phones or laptops to watch on their TVs.

Lucky enough to buy the device from Walmart, Reddit user u / fuzztub07 posted a video of the action operating system in action. The video features apps for video services like Netflix, YouTube and Amazon Prime Video, an app for Spotify and Google says it shows a number of games you can play from a gamepad or device remote. Google’s Stadia cloud gaming service is not supported, according to U / FuzTub 07, so it looks like you’ll still be able to play Stadia on TV with just the current Chromecast Ultra

Previous leaks have revealed that Google TV’s remote-controlled Chromecast will have buttons dedicated to Google Assistant, YouTube and Netflix, and a circular navigation tool at the top. While that circular navigation tool looks like some kind of scroll wheel, it can clearly only go in four directions, according to U / FZTB07.

The new Chromecast 4K / HDR is also compatible, supports multiple user accounts, lets you connect Bluetooth headphones, and doesn’t have an Ethernet port, says U / FZTub07.

My colleague Chris Welch with Google TV from his Chromecast Home Depot. Bought at 49.99, and you / fuzztub07 said they bought them at .9 49.98, so when you are officially available you should expect to pay around $ 50 for the device. And if the fact that people have already bought and tested retail units was not enough evidence that Chromecast with Google TV will launch soon, 9to5Google The “Sabrina” device appeared in the Home Depot’s internal system with a September 30 release date, so we’d be surprised if it doesn’t become an official in Google’s program tomorrow.
