Google Pixel 5 XL leak shows major change in design and a larger sized display


This Google Pixel 5 XL leak shows a major change in the design and a larger sized display smartphone

Google Pixel is a brand of consumer electronic devices developed by Google that runs either Chrome OS or the Android operating system. The Pixel brand was introduced in February 2013 with the first-generation Chromebook Pixel. The Pixel line includes laptops, tablets, and smartphones, as well as several accessories. Well, the company has launched several smartphones and users are now predicting the launch of its next flagships.

Casemaker Pigtou posted renders of the Pixel 5 XL on its French-language site, provided to it by xleaks7. Pigtou also posted renders of the standard Pixel 5 recently, and whether or not you’re convinced they’re real, they’re certainly just as detailed. The Google Pixel 5 series is supposedly still at an early stage of design and development. Given that situation, it’s not really surprising that uncorroborated rumors and leaks will be popping up left and right.

According to the leaks, the Google Pixel 5 XL will feature a 6.1-inch single punch-hole display. The smartphone back also features a fingerprint scanner, which was not present on the Pixel 4 since it had Face Unlock. The Google Pixel 5 XL is expected to come with Snapdragon 765G chipset.

Examining the phone’s body in more detail, Pigtou said this phone has a plastic back and sides, instead of the Pixel’s precious glass and metal. This would be a big step back in terms of quality. One interesting detail is that while there’ll be a 5G Pixel 5 XL, there will also be a 4G version for countries without the 5G infrastructure in place.

In terms of the battery, the smartphone will be powered with a 4,000mAh battery and must run on the latest Android version. Pigtou also revealed that the Pixel 5 XL will have a QHD display. QHD resolution is something of a necessity in the Android flagship world right now, as is a high refresh rate. Although the Pixel 4 had a 90Hz display, we’ve heard nothing about whether that’s coming to the Pixel 5 series or if it’s getting a boost to the 120Hz standard laid down by Samsung, OnePlus and others.
