    I purposely paid the extra $5 a month with AT&T when I got the 4XL so I could upgrade to the 5 shortly after it comes out and this is not exciting at all. I'm fine with not going TOTL everything as the price points were getting ridiculous - no need to have the absolute latest and greatest chip. But no face unlock and no telephoto lens? We are moving backwards here.
    I agree with you though i like the idea of a wide angle lens rather than telephoto. I have a N10 & upgraded to a N20U, just because of the insane promotional discounts. Not sure if I'll keep it though.

    I also just bought a Pixel 4XL for $499, just because I've needed a backup phone for a while now--needed it twice in the last10 months. I thought I might return it when I started seeing the Pixel 5 leaks. I'm all for the increased battery, RAM, & basic storage--and possibly reduced price. But taking a step back with the SoC selection makes no sense at all.

    GSM Arena is saying 5.8 inch screen. Too small for me.

    Like every year one of the best android phones for me. Super excited.

    Don’t care what anyone thinks, I love my pixel phones.
    They are pretty great

    I have seen rumors of anywhere from 5.8" to 6.5"..... depending on the site. I guess we won't know 100% for sure until the actual Google announcement.

    Strange how we are getting two vastly different sizes. I even thought I read it would be 6" somewhere. Guess only time will tell!

    I'm fine with a screen from 5.8" to 6.5"...... but I won't do anything under 5.8". I'm also fine with the rest of the specs if it's priced accordingly. Of course I'll still wait till it hits a sale.... I'm cheap like that lol.

    Waiting for a sale isn't being cheap, it's being smart!

    It seems like there have been other conflicting leaks but that what we've heard recently might be narrowing down the spects that we will actually see, but who knows. It will be interesting to see what finally shakes out.

    Wonder if the 5 will have IP68 protection? r
    Really hoping so, but not sure how that works with plastic.

    I would hope so, as well. Wait. The Pixel 2 was plastic and had IP 68. At least, I think it was plastic.

    The 2 was actually metal with a rubberized type non slip coating on it....a lot of folks thought it made the phone feel cheaper, but it was a heck of a lot easier to hang on to than the super slippery metal pixel 1 ;-)

    And they'll have no trouble getting an IP 68 rating with plastic. I have a 20+ year old plastic GPS unit with a removable battery that is completely waterproof. The material isn't the problem, it's how well they seal it up ;-)

    Yes it'll be and those are the additional premium features that'll distinguish the 5 from 4a line. Wireless charging, IP rating and few other stuff. Being plastic doesn't matter for those features though I hope rumours are wrong and it's actually a glass back. Not a deal breaker with plastic but personally prefer glass back.

    OHHH yeah, you're right! I forgot about that. I never thought my Pixel 2 felt cheap, either - it felt great to hold!

    I thought i read somewhere the 4a 5G will be IP66 so it's survive in the rain, but not fully submerged or anything.

    Just saw the video on the home page (pixel 5) now suggesting a 6.0 inch screen with a "significantly" larger battery then the 4A........getting better!!!
    6.2 inches would be even better. But 6.0 is better than 5.8 IMO

    I have a 2XL and a 3a XL which are both 6.0, which is a great size for me. If it came in at a 6.2 that would be OK as well.........anything bigger we'll have to wait for something else.
