More smartphones these days are arriving with support for reverse wireless charging. What this means is that users will be able to use their own phones to wirelessly charge another device that supports wireless charging, like another smartphone or a case for their wireless earbuds, which is a pretty useful feature to have.
When Google announced the Pixel 4a last month, the company also announced that they had a couple more handsets on the way in the form of the Google Pixel 5 and the 5G version of the Pixel 4a. If you have been looking forward to either handset, you’ll be pleased to learn that the phones have since been announced.
When Google announced the Pixel 4a, they also announced that they would be launching both the Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5 later on, but they did not state when this would happen. However, it seems that we now have a date to look forward to as Google has since confirmed that they would be hosting an event on the 30th of September.
It seems that this year’s Pixel smartphones could be a bit disappointing for those who might have been waiting for flagship hardware. This is according to a recent report from Android Central who have published the alleged specs of Google’s upcoming Pixel 5, which some have rightfully expected to come with higher-end specs.
For the past few years, without fail, Google releases a new Pixel phone that comes in two sizes. One is the base size and the other is an “XL” version. However, it seems that this year could be different as Google might only release the XL version of the upcoming Pixel 5 handset that will be announced this fall.
Google’s Pixel 5 is largely expected to be announced later this year. It will be the company’s flagship phone for 2020, except that there is mounting evidence to suggest that the handset will not be sporting flagship hardware If you were rightfully assuming that the phone could come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset, think again.
Last week, a rumor had suggested that the price of Google’s upcoming Pixel 4a could be set at $349. This not only makes it cheaper than its predecessor, but it also makes it cheaper than Apple’s iPhone SE. Of course given that this is a rumor, it was hard to tell how accurate this price is.
The other day an alleged render showed us what we might be able to expect from the upcoming Google Pixel 5. While it is more or less a given that Google will announce a new Pixel smartphone this year, it looks like evidence is starting to surface that suggests that Google has already begun working on it.
