Pixel 5 and 5 XL Confirmed to have Snapdragon 765G on Verizon


Google, the creator of Android is bringing new flagship Pixel devices with each version of Android and this time it is no different. It is reported that the Pixel 5 and Pixel 5 XL will be launched with Snapdragon 765G with the release of Android 11 which is not a flagship variant but seems to be mid-range phones.

It seems to be an exception this time on the chipset front of these Pixel 5 series of phones.

It is confirmed by David Ruddock on twitter about this information.

In addition, Google suggested in a survey report that the Google Pixel 5 was priced at $699.

XDA pointed out that the price tag of $699 for the Google Pixel 5 is almost impossible to use the Snapdragon 865 flagship platform, because the cost of the Snapdragon 865 is much higher than the Snapdragon 765G, and it is more reasonable for Google to use the Snapdragon 765G at this price point.

Unfortunately, other details about the Pixel 5 or the 5 XL besides the processor are not known at this moment. The previous Android 11 code hinted that the Google Pixel 5 series will have support for reverse wireless charging.

But things may change when the phones will actually be released in October around the new Android 11 launch.

That’s all for now! Stay tuned for more of such exciting information related to Android and Android phones.
