The Google Pixel 5 will arrive in black and green variants, and Google’s official name for the green model has just been confirmed. It has been confirmed by Jon Prosser, while talking with another tipster, Max Weinbach.
FIrst Jon Prosser mentioned the ‘Sage Green’ name, after which Max Weinbach said it’ll be either ‘Subtle Sage’ or ‘Sorta Sage’, as he has been hearing both. After that, Jon Prosser seems to have confirmed the final name.
The green Google Pixel 5 will be called ‘Subtle Sage’
It will be ‘Subtle Sage’. That’s a rather odd choice, but then again, we’re talking about the company that usually goes with such names. Google opted for ‘Just Black’ and ‘Oh So Orange’ names in the past, those are just some examples.
Speaking of which, the black Google Pixel 5 variant will probably be called ‘Just Black’. That’s the company’s go-to name for all black Pixel phones, it seems.
The Google Pixel 5 will become official soon. The company is getting ready to announce it on September 30, along with some other devices. The phone will launch alongside the Pixel 4a 5G, and some Nest products.
The device will not ship with a flagship processor, and yet it will be the company’s most powerful phone released in 2020. It will be equipped with the Snapdragon 765G 64-bit octa-core SoC.
That chip is really capable, and one of the best mid-rangers Qualcomm has to offer. Still, it’s nowhere near the Snapdragon 865 or 865+ in terms of performance. It does support 5G, though.
The phone will be on offer in a single variant
The Pixel 5 will arrive in a single variant. It will include 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. You won’t be able to expand its storage. It will feature a 6-inch fullHD+ 90Hz display. That display will be protected by the Gorilla Glass 6.
The phone will also include a 4,080mAh battery, which will support 18W fast wired charging. Wireless charging will also be supported, while reverse charging may be a part of the package as well.
The phone will be IP68 certified, while we still don’t know what build materials will Google use. All we know is that it won’t be all plastic like the Google Pixel 4a.
A 12.2-megapixel main camera will be included on the back, alongside an ultra-wide camera. A single 8-megapixel camera will sit on the phone’s front side.
The device will sport a rear-facing fingerprint scanner, and its bezels will be very thin. A flat display will be included, and a display camera hole will as well. The phone is set to cost $699 in the US, CAD799.99 in Canada, and €629 in Europe. For more information, check out our Pixel 5 preview.
