Google has already confirmed the release of Pixel 5 for the fall. Despite this, the company has not advanced any further details about the smartphone, which means that we will have to rely on the usual leaks of information.
According to what is being advanced, the Google Pixel 5 will come with a battery of only 3080mAh. This is a number well below expectations and it will certainly have less positive effects on the smartphone’s autonomy.
Pixel 5 battery increases, but autonomy is expected to decrease
It is important to note that the Google Pixel 5’s 3080mAh is a growth compared to the Pixel 4’s 2800mAh. However, due to some of the new features expected for this smartphone, this could represent a setback in autonomy.
One of the main new features of Google Pixel 5 will be compatibility with 5G networks. This new technology consumes more energy than 4G, so it would be expected that Google would bet on a slightly larger battery.
To make the scenario a little worse, the same source says that the Google Pixel 5 will have a screen with QHD + resolution. It is also important to remember that your screen should have 6.7 inches and a refresh rate of 90Hz or 120Hz.
This means that the Pixel 5 screen will be one of the smartphone’s main energy consumers. Therefore, the marginal growth of your battery, compared to last year’s model, should not be enough to improve the equipment’s autonomy.
Possible Google Pixel 5 specifications
- 6.7-inch QHD + OLED screen
- 120Hz refresh rate
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor
- 8GB RAM
- 3080mAh battery
One of the main changes made to the Pixel 5 will be the use of the Snapdragon 765G processor. The abandonment of the Snapdragon 800 line is due to Google’s attempt to sell its smartphone at a competitive price.
However, the latest data points to a launch price of $ 699. A value below its predecessor, but which may not be considered as accessible as Google would like.
