Google is getting set to release a new set of smartphones notably Google Pixel 5 series and Pixel 4a. In a recent report, there were speculations that these smartphones will use a rear fingerprint sensor. The previous Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL cut off fingerprint recognition and adopted 3D face recognition. Now, its successor seems to be taking a back turn. This obvious “reverse driving” approach seems illogical. According to reports, Google’s upcoming mid-range smartphone may be the cheapest in its history. Now, a Google smartphone just appeared on GeekBench.
A previously unknown Google Pixel smartphone codenamed “Google Scarlet” has appeared on Geekbench. The information shows that Google Scarlet uses the Snapdragon 617 processor. This will make this phone the Pixel smartphone with the lowest processing power ever. In the image, you can see the name and processor of Google Scarlet. Furthermore, another image shows the name “Google Pixel 2”.
According to the GeekBench listing, this smartphone will come with the processor – MSM8952, which is Snapdragon 617. The two images show that this smartphone will use a Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor. In addition, this device will only be equipped with 4GB of RAM. It will also come with Android Pie out-of-the-box. In all, the true identity of this smartphone is still unclear. However, looking at the specs of this device, it will probably be the cheapest Pixel device in history.
As for the Pixel 5 series, it has Pixel 5, Pixel 5 XL, Pixel 5 XL 5G. All three products use a triple rear camera setup. In addition, they all come with a rear fingerprint sensor. According to reports, the dimension of the Google Pixel 5 is approximately 144.6mm x 70.4mm x and 8mm. If you add the camera bump, the thickness will increase to 9.5mm. This means that the Pixel 5 will be a bit smaller than the iPhone 11. Recent renders show that the display appears to be 5.5 inches or more but the bezels are still thick. As usual, the bezel of this smartphone is symmetrical but the edges are round.
There is also information that the Pixel 5 will come with a USB Type-C port on the bottom. It will also use the Pixel speaker grills which look like a cutout. Unfortunately, the CAD renders do not show any headphone jack. From the images, the side of this smartphone uses a different build material. It will probably have an aluminum side like its predecessor. However, there is no confirmation of this. According to Pigtou calculations, the Pixel 5 may come with a 5.78 inch OLED display with QHD resolution. While there are no speculations on the exact sensor, this phone will likely have two cameras on the back. On the front, there will be a single punch-hole camera.
