Google Pixel 5 launch event confirmed for Sept 30

Pixel 5

Google has finally sent out invitations to its long-awaited Made by Google event for September 30th.

In addition to the Google Pixel 5 smartphone, the next generation of the Chromecast media player and a new smart speaker are expected at the press conference. This presentation will be available to watch live on the internet. At its "Launch Night In" event, Google will also launch its new Chromecast, new smart speaker and the Pixel 4a 5G. For the first time, at least one of these models should be 5G compatible.

Google is getting ready for its second round of phone launch this year. Google had already confirmed the launch of Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a 5G. No real surprises but it will be good to see all the specific details of the devices and the new tricks that Google will most undoubtedly introduce with them.

The Pixel 5 will come with an OLED panel and support a 90Hz refresh rate. The handset is said to be powered by a mighty processor from Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 765 SoC. This chipset will get 8GB RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The new Pixel phone will also pack a dual rear camera setup, with a primary 12.2-megapixel camera and an ultra-wide lens.

That isn't always it - the long-leaked Android TELEVISION dongle codenamed Sabrina still hasn't been revealed, so this would be the best time for it to lastly get the spotlight. However, the company is yet to release it to newer Pixel devices for the Indian market due to compatibility issues. Even with the Australia tax the device is expected to be under that mark with it costing just $49.95 (or $59,98 - leaks vary) in the United States - we're watching you Google, please make it so. For consumers in India, they are already aware that except for the Chromecast and the speaker, both the new Pixel phones will not be launching in the country.
