Google Pixel 5: What you should know
Let’s talk about the Google Pixel 5, Google did some digging and says it can, quote, say with relative confidence that the Pixel five and Pixel 5XL will use the Snapdragon 765G as its base system on a chip. Now, the Snapdragon 765 is not the top of the line Qualcomm processor for 2020. That accolade goes to the 865. This would mean that the Pixel 5 would not be like every previous pixel that used Qualcomm’s most advanced processor at the time. This is a very big deal. So let’s break this down. First up, how the site came to its conclusion. It got its hands on a previous version of the Google camera app from a prototype pixel for a phone that does not officially exist yet. Now, digging through the app nine to five found code that likely refers to the Pixel 5. The site says the next pixels were code named Bramble and Redfin.
Back in January, X developers found the same code names Bramble and Redfin would be using Qualcomm’s Snapdragon seven sixty five. So the conclusion is that the Bramble and Redfin, a.k.a. the Pixel 5 and XL would be using Qualcomm’s 765 processor. Now let’s talk about that processor. Back in December 2019, Qualcomm announced its plans for 2020. There’s the highest end Snapdragon 865. In February, Qualcomm said that there were more than seventy five G devices that use the 865 in the works. That list includes the Sony Xperia to the Mi 10 and of course the Samsung Galaxy S20 line. But here’s the thing. The 865 does not have a five G modem built in. That means that manufacturers can buy Qualcomm’s X 55 modem if they like the X. 55 modem can hit speeds of up to seven gigabits per second. That’s ridiculously fast. Experts had expected a sixty five to integrate a modem, but that wasn’t the case. The bigger benefits of chips with an integrated modem are better battery life and lower cost. And there’s also the space savings in the actual phone. One components that a two right when it’s integrated, the seven sixty five, the one that might be in the Pixel five does have an integrated modem. It’s the X 52 which is slower than the X 55, the X 52 tops out at 3.7 gigabits per second, which is still really, really fast. This processor is aimed at cheaper smartphones than those using the 865. There are actually two versions of the seven sixty five by the way, there’s the regular and the 765G. The G stands for gaming. Qualcomm says the GPU on the G brings 10 percent faster graphics, rendering one compared to the seven sixty five as well as fast load times. So if the Pixel five is using the seven sixty five or G, that would suggest that Google is not positioning the pixel against other flagship phones like the S twenty or even the Apple iPhone. Those devices are pricey.
The S20 starts at around a 1000 bucks, tops out of around 1600$ dollars with a maxed out ultra. Then there’s Apple. The iPhone 11 starts at 700 $dollars and the max is 1450 $ if you max that out. Meanwhile the pixel 4 starts at around 800$, topping out at around 1000$. Then there’s the budget three which tops out at four hundred and eighty bucks. If Google is using the second tier processor from Qualcomm, that could mean the Pixel 5 could have some wiggle room on its pricing. Google could save on the processor, but finally load up the pixel with more than 128 gigs of storage, maybe thrown a ton of ram to maybe Google’s radar powered motion sensor gets better or gets the boot. That would mean that the Pixel 5 could keep its pricing the same as before while touting tons of improvements. Or it’s entirely possible for the Pixel 5 to cost less than the pixel for that would be a very bold strategy. Cotton could have pixel with a slower processor than the other guys even work. Well, the pixel series uses a more budget friendly set of specs, including the processor. That pixel series is no slouch. Google optimized Android to the hardware Encina Review. Lin said that during her time with the Pixel three a day to day usage did not feel much different than the Pixel three. She also noted that photo modes that took extra processing time all felt like they took the same amount of time as before to the 765 is not as fast a performer as the 865, but Google can make that up with software. Google is playing a very similar game as Apple. It controls the software and what goes into its phones. Google makes sure everything works well together. There’s only so much you can do. With raw hardware, if the software does not take advantage of what the hardware can do, doesn’t matter what your hardware is, we’ve seen so many pixel leaks in the past, the hardware and designs were. But then Google wowed us with software like Night Site Photography, call screening a revamped Google assistant and a recorder app with transcription in practice, a pixel five running a Snapdragon 765 could be an excellent daily driver if the software is there now. At one point the pixel was only available at Verizon and Google’s online store. I don’t know if people knew you could buy an unlocked pixel from Google and bring it to any carrier. Then the pixel 5 broke barriers. It made it to all wireless carrier stores in the US. Now we’re coming to Pixel five. Google has a real opportunity to produce an excellent phone at a good price point available everywhere. Now, this is usually the part of the show where I say Google is going to mess this up. Huge, but not today. I think they’re going to do it. I think Google will have learned from all of its past experiences with the pixel and other hardware. Let’s stay positive here.
