The Google Pixel 5 is rumored to launch in a new green color (green-ish? green-like?) in addition to black, but you don’t have to wait until later this month to see what that will look like. That very configuration of Google’s upcoming flagship phone seems to be laid bare in a leaked marketing shot, spotted by WinFuture (via 9to5Google). The phone is face-down on its screen, leaving its rear fingerprint sensor and all-plastic back visible, and both details line up with the rumors so far.
Somewhat unsurprisingly, given how much Google tech tends to leak, this image also serves up yet another look at Google’s Nest Audio smart speaker and its new Chromecast running the refreshed Google TV interface. Both products were recently spotted at retail stores in the US, so not only does this leak seem to be legitimate, but their release is likely imminent. Nice job, Google!
Looking at this one image should get you pretty caught up as to what we’re expecting Google to launch at its next hardware event on September 30th. But to recap, Google’s Pixel 5 is its new flagship phone, and the rumored specs include a six-inch OLED screen, a 5G-ready Snapdragon 765G processor, 8GB of RAM, 128GB of internal storage, a 4,080mAh battery, IP68 waterproofing, and 18W USB-C fast charging.
The Pixel 5 is said to debut alongside the Pixel 4A 5G, a higher-end version of the Pixel 4A that can connect to 5G networks. The new Chromecast is rumored to include a remote, and unlike previous iterations, it will run the new Google TV user interface instead of simply serving as a device that can cast content from phones to TVs.
We won’t have to wait long to see what Google has in store for hardware for the rest of 2020. It’s hosting an event on Wednesday, September 30th, at 11AM PT / 2PM ET. We’ll have in-depth coverage of the event, and the devices announced during it, on the site, so stay tuned.
