Google unveils two new Pixel smartphones before Apple’s iPhone launch

American multinational technology giant, Google LLC, has reportedly launched two new 5G android smartphones, namely Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a 5G. According to reliable sources, the Pixel 5 display is in line with the latest top end phones from California-based technology company Apple Inc.

It is to be noted that Google started offering Pixel smartphones since 2016. However, Pixel phone shipments have been relatively slow, with around 7.2 million units sold in 2019. On the contrary, Huawei Technologies Co., Samsung Electronics Co Ltd. and Apple Inc. have individually sold more than 100 million handsets yearly, cited sources.

Reportedly, both new phones consist of fewer camera sensors, slower processors and an all screen display. Moreover, the phones are void of the facial recognition as well motion sensor from the previous Pixel 4. Regardless, Google has integrated a fingerprint sensor on the back of the phone.

If sources are to be believed, the new Pixel 5 features a hole-punch display design and has an 8 megapixels front camera. The rear camera can capture portrait mode photos in low light conditions and has improved modes for video stabilization.

In addition, Google has reportedly integrated advanced camera software in the smartphone, added enhanced battery capabilities that can increase the battery life of the phone by up to 48 hours as well as allow for reverse charging.

Sources close to the matter claimed that the Pixel 5 will be available in green and black colors, and will be priced at USD 699. Alternatively, the Pixel 4a 5G, which is smaller version of the non 5G variant, will be priced at USD 499.

Google also reportedly launched its new Nest Audio speaker along with an improved version of its TV streaming device, Chromecast.

In other news, as per credible sources, Apple Inc. will be launching a lineup of four iPhones towards the end of October. All four models will be having a base variant with 128 GB of memory space.
