Google sets a date for the Pixel 5 and 4a 5G launch
Google's Pixel 4 successor has been discussed extensively in the press for some time now. It is possible that this 5, while being the new flagship of its line, will be powered by a Snapdragon 765G SoC rather than a top-end processor. Nevertheless, it is also thought to offer a bigger battery, a QHD+ display and much less chin compared to some devices from its series.
Now, it also has a launch date. Google has informed press representatives that the "new Pixels" will be unveiled on September 30, 2020 at 11:00 PST (20:00 CET). The other new phone is almost certainly the Pixel 4a (5G) that was confirmed earlier. Their debut will, of course, be virtual: Google invites viewers to take front seats for it on their own couches.
The Mountain View giant has also mentioned a "new Chromecast", as well as a new Nest smart speaker. These are reportedly devices code-named prince and sabrina at present. The former has been depicted as something like a Google Home Mini in looks, whereas the latter may in fact be more of an Android TV dongle with cast functionality.
