Leaked Google Pixel 5 marketing renders confirm green colour option
Roland Quandt and Evan Blass have struck again with more details about the upcoming Pixel 5. Quandt does not have much else to leak about the device considering the wealth of information that he and WinFuture have already released this week, on which we have reported. Nonetheless, Quandt and Blass have now offered a first look at the green edition of the Pixel 5 that Google will announce release alongside the black model on September 30.
Jon Prosser claimed a few months ago that Google had a green model in the works, but it is more of a subdued hue than the company used for the Oh So Orange version of the Pixel 4 series. The green colour scheme spans the back and frame of the device as one complete piece, which suggests that the Pixel 5 will not have a glass back. However, Quandt claims that the Pixel 5 will support wireless and reverse wireless charging.
It seems that the Pixel 5 will have a textured back panel and frame, too. There is a definite grain to both colours that does not exist on the Pixel 4a or Pixel 4a (5G), which may make the Pixel 5 easier to hold. The textured finish may also contain flecks that catch light, but this is difficult to determine from renders.
The green edition of the Pixel 5 will be joined by a metallic power button, as Google teases on its 5G Pixel landing page. Early retailer listings suggest that Google will price the Pixel 5 at €629, for which you will receive a Snapdragon 765G chipset, 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. Three cameras will also be on board, as will a 4,080 mAh battery.
