Last month there were rumors that on September 30, Google will hold a presentation of the new generation of its “flagship” smartphone Pixel 5. Those were only speculations, but today we received confirmation – the company released a poster. The event, which will be streamed, will begin at 11AM PT time.
Official: Google Pixel 5 will launch on September 30th
In addition to the Pixel 5, Google may show a new generation of its Chromecast, as well as a new smart speaker. All these informations are learned from the text of the sent out invitations. The invitation says, “We invite you to find out all about our new Chromecast, our latest smart speaker and the new Pixel smartphones.”
The Pixel 5 was first officially announced during the launch of the Pixel 4a. Then, in a press release, the company mentioned that the Pixel 5 will have 5G support. After the presentation, the new product from Google will be available in the USA, Canada, Great Britain, Ireland, France, Germany, Japan, Taiwan and Australia.
The information that the company will launch a new smart speaker under the Google brand and a new generation of Chromecast was confirmed by Google for the first time. Recall that Google hinted at the existence of a smart speaker called Nest back in July after the leaked image of the device.
It is worth to mention that last month, Google has officially launched the Pixel 4a smartphone. As a reminder, the Pixel 4a has a 5.81-inch screen and runs the Snapdragon 730G with 6GB of RAM. The only storage option is 128GB, which is twice as much as last year. The smartphone is available in only one color – black.
The smartphone has the familiar 12.2MP sensor that we saw in last year’s flagship Pixel 4. The fingerprint sensor is located on the back. The smartphone has a 3140 mAh battery, more than previous small Pixel devices. As always, Google plans to update this smartphone for at least three years with the latest security patches. In addition, the phone offers a stock Android experience free of bloatware.
