The latest Phones in the Google Pixel Series are quite remarkable. With the Google Pixel 5 and 4a (5G) announced, fans have been really excited. These devices are yet to be available, with official announcements stating that they will start to be available only from the 15th of October 2020 in a region by region manner.
Cost of the Device
However, one thing that has truly been a welcome surprise is the pricing of these devices. Unlike Samsung and Apple with their super-expensive new phones, Google’s Pixel phones are most cost-conscious. With Apple and Samsung pricing their phones at prices upward of $1000 (approximately 73,000 rupees) Google, has made their phones a whole lot more accessible. The Pixel 5 starts at $699 (approximately 51,000 rupees) and the Pixel 4a (5G) starts at $499 (approximately 36,000 rupees). The Pixel 4a, launched earlier this year, will be priced at about $399 (approximately 29,000 rupees). They are great phones with which one can enter into the 5G ecosystem.
To hit these prices, however, sacrifices definitely had to be made. Both the Pixel 5 and the 4a(5G) have processors that are not as powerful as the best offered by Samsung and Apple. The Pixel 5 is waterproof, though the Pixel 4a (5G) is not.
Features of the device
These phones are still pretty impressive. The Pixel 5 boasts amazing features like 8 gigs of RAM and 128 gigs of internal memory. It bears an OLED display with a 1080 x 2280 pixel resolution screen on a device with a 19:9 screen-to-body ratio. With Android 11 and over 4000 mAh of battery, this is a powerful device. It has a dual rear camera set up with 12.2 and 16-megapixel cameras. It is also waterproof. Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G Chipset, this device will be amazing.
The Pixel 4a (5G) has a similar spec sheet. With the only major differences being that it is a little bigger in size and bears a smaller battery at 3885 mAh. The device is not waterproof either. Nevertheless, it is still an outstanding device.
Google is leaning heavily toward the software aspect with regards to the cameras. They have stated that this is their best camera yet. With features like portrait light and a combination of Night Sight and Portrait mode, the camera is well equipped to shoot amazing picture irrespective of the lighting. Even video shooting has more features.
The Pixel 4a (5G) will be available in Japan on the 15th of October and other regions will follow. The Pixel 5 will be released on the same day but it will not come to the United States until the 29th of October.
Google even added several aspects to their smart home line-up with new TV and speaker offerings. They even unveiled a new smart speaker called Nest Audio which is more powerful than its predecessors.
With the release date looming, fans eager to get their hands on the Pixel phones and the home devices are quite exciting as well. Preorders for the Pixel phones are now open and they estimated delivery shows early November.
