Google Pixel 5 – FIRST LOOK


So just four months after Google unveiled
their latest flagship phone the Pixel 4, we have the first look of their new flagship
phone, the Pixel 5 XL. The handset is due to be unveiled in October
this year so we’re almost 8 months away from the launch event but Jon Prosser from Front
Page Tech, a good friend of mine got early access to the CAD renders of the handset and
revealed what it could look like. He has extremely reliable sources so this
could be the final design we’re looking at, or at least it could be one of the prototypes. But knowing Google, my guess is that this
could very well be the final design. Google just suck at keeping secrets. Anyway, as you can see, the trend of a huge
camera layout is here to stay. It was kinda started with Huawei, and then
Google, Apple, Samsung and now again Google’s back with another big camera layout which
is situated at the center and has three cameras this time instead of two we saw on the Pixel
4 and also has an LED flash. There’s no information just yet about the
camera configuration but we can expect a normal, wide and telephoto cameras. Jon also talked about the front design. He’s not like 100% sure but he’s saying there
is a forehead just like the Pixel 4 but the size is smaller than the last phone which
is totally okay as long as they are not going with a notch. In my opinion, a small forehead still looks
better than any kind of interruption on the display, especially of this kind. That said, I know this might seem weird to
a lot of you but I’m kinda digging this design. Although the camera setup looks like a surprise
pikachu face but once you go past through it, it starts looking better. I mean way better than the Pixel 4’s camera
design or the iPhone 11 Pro’s design or even the Galaxy S20 Ultra’s camera design. I’m not saying it looks beautiful but out
of all the huge camera bumps we’ve seen recently this one looks decent. The fact that it’s in the middle and symmetric
makes it look better at least to me. And if Google goes with this design then I’ll
be pretty happy with the design team this year. Google arguably sits at the top for making
the worst looking phones, but thankfully it looks like that’s not going to be the case
this year. A small forehead, no chin, and this camera
setup is a decent looking phone in my opinion. What do you think? Do you like the design or completely hate
it? Let me know down in the comments. A lot of you might have known this already
but Mobile World Congress which is the world’s biggest mobile trade show has been canceled
over the fears of a virus. I can’t name it here because YouTube’s going
demonetize the video. A lot of big companies were scheduled to be
there at the event to showcase their new products such as Nokia, LG, Sony, Oppo, Vivo, Xiaomi,
Huawei and more but since a lot of Chinese people will also be there and their companies
didn’t want to take the risk of getting their employees infected so they started pulling
out from the event one by one. GSMA which organizes the MWC is left with
no choice but to cancel the event altogether. Now the companies that were originally scheduled
to launch their products at MWC will do it in a separate event or will do it online. With that being for all the latest tech news
please consider subscribing and as always I’ll see you tomorrow…Peace out!
