Google Pixel 5 - TOP 5 FEATURES

The Google Pixel 5 is now OFFICIAL. We have the OFFICIAL Details, Specifications and Features and It's way different then what the Pixel Flagship line was made for.

The OG Pixel, Pixel 2 XL, Pixel 3 XL, and Pixel 4 XL all Got Flagship CPUs, We saw some design experiments, like Huge bezels in Pixel 2, A huge notch on Pixel 3 XL, and Last Year there was a huge top for useless Soli Radar. This time However things are Perfect in terms of Design, but in terms of Specifications and mainly CPU, it's not looking good.


Here are top 5 features of the brand new Pixel 5 Smartphone.

1. Design

So you're looking at the first Google Smartphone with symmetrical bezels and i must say this is a really Good design, there's a punch hole on top left corner, It's huge no doubt, but this design is way better than what the Pixel 4, or Pixel 3 XL was. This is an OLED Display with 90Hz Refersh Rate, 90Hz is I think a sweet spot, i'm in for that.

The Back design is also really nice, and in sorta sage green color it looks unique. the Entire rear is made of aluminium. Wireless Charging does not work through metal, but there's a cutout for the transmission of energy. So yeah Metal it is and it looks and ofcourse gonna feel really amazing.


2. Performance

So the Pixel 5 features a Mid range Snapdragon 765G 5G CPU, which can also be found in the OnePlus Nord which cost just 339 USD if you convert the Indian pricing. The 765G is based on 7nm Process and is decent for Daily usage, I haven't seen any lags on my Nord so i guess same for the Pixel 5, Additionally there's also 8GB of RAM with 128GB of Storage.


3. Camera

Now it's not about the Design like a Glass Panel, or Performance like Flagship 865 CPU, it's all about the best Cameras and Image Processing, the Pixel 5 is once again going to smash most Phones in terms of Camera Performance and Image Processing. There's 12.2MP Main Camera which supports 4K 60FPS and 1080p 240FPS video recording, it is the same sensor used in the Pixel 4, Pixel 3 XL, only difference will be in image processing and there's also a 16MP wide-angle camera. No Telephoto is quite disappointng, but yeah Google's image processing can make zoomed images looks like taken from Telephoto.



4 Software

Second most important thing inside Google Pixel Phones is Software, it is straight from the brand who owns Android, so security patches, and major updates before all is something most need for a secure usage. There's also some Pixel exclusive Software like Screen Call, Integrated Google assistant and much more.

This is a bloatware free experience which is something you won't find in Xiaomi or OnePlus devices too coz now they come with Facebook and Messenger. So yeah Pixel 5 with best Software.


5. Hidden Addons

This may go unnoticed, but the Pixel 5 features Flagship IP68 Certification, there's 4080mAH BATTERY with Wireless Charging and reverse wireless charging, and it's overall a great and decent phone. 699 US dollars will be the price, it's going one on one with the S20 FE, iPhone 12 Mini and OnePlus 8T. I won't say you should just go and grab Pixel 5, but if you want a decent phone for normal performance usage and great cameras, the Pixel 5 is the one to get.



Google expected to sell only 800K units of Pixel 5 in 2020


The Google's Pixel 5 and Pixel 4A XL are on it's way and this year Google is targeting a wide range of Audience by Lowering down the Price and ofcourse Lowering down the Specifications. Unlike the Pixel 4, Pixel 3, Pixel 2 XL or the OG Pixel Phone, the Pixel 5 is a Mid-range Smartphone with some Flagship Features.

Google is looking to produce only around 800K units of the Pixel 5 in 2020. Google is expected to ship 3 million units if we combine the Pixel 5, Pixel 4a 5G, and Pixel 4a together. This year, the top selling phones were Galaxy A51 and iPhone 11, so Google with Pixel 4A and Pixel 5 can easily surpass most phones.

"Google gave a relatively conservative order forecast this year because its flagship Pixel 4 did not sell well last year, and because COVID-19 is causing their team to stay on the safe side concerning handsets for now."


FYI, Google sold 7.2 million Pixel Smartphones last year, but this year due to Covid-19, All the Tech Giants including Google got affected, so shipping 3M Units of New Phones in 2020 is not bad at all.

OnePlus 8T OFFICIAL TEASER is now LIVE

OnePlus 8T OFFICIAL TEASER is now LIVE

OnePlus finally revealed that the OnePlus 8T is real and is Coming Officially next month. They're also throwing a Contest where users can Win a brand new OnePlus 8T or Discount on OnePlus Devices just by Clicking on "Notify Me" for the OnePlus 8T News.


OnePlus also released a Trailer Teaser with Brand Ambassador Rober Downey Jr. (also known as RDJ) to promote the upcoming OnePlus 8T 5G Smartphone. Sadly this also confirms there's no OnePlus 8T Pro this year.



We saw the Design of OnePlus 8T a few days back and it's coming with Samsung Galaxy S20 Like Camera module with 48MP likely IMX689. OnePlus will be using 65W SuperWarp Charging, 120Hz FHD+ Display, and Snapdagon 865+ CPU.


So the launch event Kicks 14th October and we're also expecting New OnePlus Nord Devices with OnePlus Buds Z and finally OnePlus Watch. 



Sorry, Android. Google Widget on iPhone is Cool

So Google just made this Cool new Widget Available for iPhones running iOS 14. Apple iOS 14 finally comes with an Option where you can place Widgets inbetween your Applications and that's Something Android has been doing for years, but you know, when Apple do it, it's Cool.


This new Search Widget looks really nice and is available in different sizes for iOS 14. It Got a Search Bar, Lens, Voice Search and Incognito Option right there. Sadly it's not available for Google's own Android, Google likely want it to be iOS Exclusive.

This is not the first time we're seeing something like that from Google's side, Google got a sweet spot for iOS. Motion Stills, Photovine and there are many Cool Google Applications first came to iOS and then made their way to Android.

As an Android user, this makes me feel like Google loves iOS more than Android. Not Cool Google.
