The Google Pixel 5 could finally give fans what they've always wanted
The Google Pixel 5 is expected to launch in October, and details of the phone have now surfaced. While there's not much that isn't known at this point, one particular bit of information will likely gladden the hearts of expectant fans.
According to a new report by Android Central, the Google Pixel 5 will feature an actually usable battery.
We also know that the Pixel 5's battery capacity will be considerably larger than the Pixel 4 and that the rumor of it being 3,080 mAh is entirely false.
Reports prior claimed the Pixel 5 would offer a similar battery to the Pixel 4a, but this soundly debunks those claims. It appears that Google will actually equip the Pixel 5 with decent battery hardware. That's a surprise and a deviation from previous devices in the series. The Pixel 2, Pixel 3, and Pixel 4 featured 2700 mAh, 2915 mAh, and 2800 mAh batteries respectively.
Battery capacity has always been a weak point with the Pixel series. The Pixel 4, in particular, was notorious as it combined a minuscule 2800 mAh unit with a 90 Hz display. It's nice to see that Google will take things up a notch in that department, and shows that the company may finally be listening to the media and fans.
Apart from battery capacity, the Google Pixel 5 will offer a 6-inch 90 Hz AMOLED, a Snapdragon 765G, an ultra-wide camera, 8 GB of RAM, and 128 GB of storage. Depending on how it's priced, it could very well be one of the best premium phones of the year.
