    Honestly, for me, if the pixel 5's aren't flagships but have pretty good specs plus 5G, I will definitely consider it! I'm definitely looking forward to the pixel 5's, being launched.

    Thank you for posting a Pixel 5 thread! I am very excited for the Pixel 5's launch. I miss the Pixel experience but wasn't excited to jump on the Pixel 4. I'm hoping the price will be good

    With regards to software, whether it's midrange or not may not really be an issue for me. If it's smooth and fast and the camera is awesome, I'm set! I hope it has a fingerprint sensor of some kind, though.

    I've seen some mixed leaks about images of the device and otherwise don't know too much about it (other than the other rumour that it might be a midrange model).

    I hope we find out more about this device soon!

    yeah, the only thing I didn't like about the Nexus line and I had quite a few Nexus phones was the fact that the camera sucked. With the Pixel line Google got with it with the image processing and machine learning and the algorithms and the pictures are top-notch. That's why I would consider the mid-range Pixel 5 XL.

    I LOVED my Nexus 5 and that was one reason why I got a Pixel 2.

    The uproar over the Pixel 5 "not being a flagship" just because it doesn't have an 800 series Snapdragon could very well be jumping to a conclusion way too quickly. Many people have noted that the Pixel 3a line hardly seems any slower than the main Pixel 3 line, so if things are optimized correctly, then a Pixel 5 using a 765G could feel just like any other flagship (and hopefully with better battery life to boot).

    Oh I agree. I mean the fact that the Pixel 3A series doesn't have the flagship Snapdragon processor doesn't mean anything. The phone performs almost identical to its bigger brother. That's my major point here. Stock Google Pixel phones don't need to have the latest processor inside of them to have a great experience

    So if pixel 5 doesn't have flagship specs, how would that be different than Pixel 4a?

    If the pixel comes out this year and addresses some of its shortcomings then yeah I will be excited.

    I really would love it if the pixel had a huge battery and if they brought back a fingerprint scanner on the back.

    Keep the size reasonable and the price $800 or less and I might buy one.

    I agree. However, I'm probably one of those that would not be interested in less horsepower in a Pixel. I jumped over from years of being with Motorola, and watched them flounder for anything that would set them apart in the mobile device space. Not every user is a power user, but many want to know it is there if they put their foot on the pedal. An under-powered phone can be a headache. For me, the reason for Pixel is software and a good software/hardware experience. However, I would much rather them come out with one size, and then a Pixel 5 Pro and a Pixel 5---same size. One with different ram and processor if needed. My two cents.

    I could get behind a phone like this. I can't ever buy a 6.7" phone - it won't fit in my hands, in my purse, or in my life! I hope that Google will release a smaller and larger Pixel 5. OnePlus 8 was going to be on my list but those sizes are too big for me.

    5G, premium build, face unlock with Soli, better cameras/extra lens, more RAM, faster UFS 3.1 storage, better display and higher end SoC are some of the ways they can differentiate between a mid-range Pixel 4a and premium mid-range 5/5XL.

    If LG 60v can use 865 with 5G, 8gb Ram and 128gb storage all for $799.
    I'm sure Google can do it!

    I'm in between a rock and a hard place as a Pixel 2 owner. I can handle the performance of the 765G. But that chip means certain features are off the table. No 90+Hz display. No 4K @60fps. A slower max 5G speed. Another way less than flagship display too? The price matters to me. Whether or not there's a fingerprint scanner matters to me. Battery life matters to me.

    I have always had a Nexus/Pixel device with the exception of the OG Galaxy and the Moto X. It's always been software and security updates that I care about more than the aforementioned stuff. But if Google prices the Pixel 5 like the Pixel 4, I guess I'll be walking around with an out of date Pixel 2. I felt like the Pixel 2 was worth the money. But $900 for a Pixel 4 is just insulting to me. There's no way I'm paying that for an upper midrange processor lacking so many features that frankly are so 2018.

    To correct myself, I looked more into the processor and I see support up to 120Hz so that make some feel better about it. I just want to see Pixel 2 starting prices if we're looking at a sub 6" device.

    My Pixel 2XL will run out of updates this fall so I'll be looking to replace it. Here in Canada premium phones are hitting the $2000 mark. I won't pay that. My 2 is running great so anything newer will be fine. If the 5 has midrange specs but awesome battery life and a lower price I'll be fine with that.

    I agree. When I'm ready for an update as my next phone, if the pixel 5 XL is cheaper I don't need the flagship specs except 5G potentially. I refuse to pay more than $1,000 for a phone. I'm in is a faster refresh rate for the screen nice yes but I don't need it. I want battery life just like everyone else does. Lol.

    It depends, the 765 processor is more than capable and should have similar performance to the 845 if iirc with some added benefits in efficiency and other areas.

    I'm not worried about the camera honestly, what I need is a solid telephoto and a wide angle with better video recording capability. For me it's going to be about the battery life. If they don't step up in that department I'm out. Honestly there is a good chance I'm getting an S20 of there's a decent deal before then though.

    I just hope it doesn't look like those God-awful tenders closing around. The U bump is hideous.
    I don't worry to much about the specs. Google's been virtually 4 for 4 in terms of specs for their pixels. It's battery life and the price that will do it for me
