Google unveils Pixel 5: Officially joins the 5G game with new flagship phone (See Full Specification)



Following months of leaks, the Pixel 5 is finally real. Google announced its new flagship phone today (Sept. 30) at its Launch Night In event, though the Pixel 5 certainly isn’t a flagship in the traditional sense. It lacks the most powerful hardware, for one, and starts at just $699..

It’s also not the only handset Google announced, as it shared the spotlight with the $499 Pixel 4a 5G, which offers similar performance, without some more luxurious premium features, in a cheaper and slightly larger package.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Pixel 5, from when you’ll be able to get your hands on one, to what you’ll be able to expect in terms of performance and camera quality.
