The Pixel 5 might have a lower-end chipset, but we're not worried, and here's why

Of the available evidence, everything points to a Snapdragon 765G powering the anticipated Pixel 5, and that's caused a lot of spec-gazers to cast a doubtful eye on Google's upcoming phone. Prior to the Pixel 5, every Pixel phone used the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 series chipset, the most powerful SoCs available on the open market. With the 765G, though, we don't necessarily think Google's made a bad move—we've been using phones with the new high-end-of-the-mid-range Qualcomm chip—like the OnePlus Nord—and we're impressed. And we think there's really no reason the Pixel 5 really needs to full-fat 865 as a result.

Pixel 5 likely won't pack Qualcomm's fastest chipset, according to teardown

Pixel 5 likely won't pack Qualcomm's fastest chipset, according to teardown

Based on an APK teardown from that Pixel 4a that leaked earlier, new details regarding Google's upcoming Pixel 5 might also be coming to light. The folks at 9to5Google, in concert with Gcam modder Cstark27, have confirmed the Pixel 5's codename, and through that, further confirmed that the Pixel 5 won't have your usual "flagship" chipset inside it. Google's next high-end Pixel will probably be packing a Snapdragon 765, based on what we know.

Frontrunner emerges among potential Pixel 4a codenames, helping to narrow down hardware expectations (Updated)

Frontrunner emerges among potential Pixel 4a codenames, helping to narrow down hardware expectations (Updated)

A report from XDA Developers today cites the existence of three codenames potentially related to Google's upcoming affordable smartphones (or phone), and evidence discovered alongside those names paints a more confusing picture of the situation than ever. The long and short of it: there could be two Pixel 4a variants after all, and one of them could support 5G.

According to XDA, the three codenames of note are sunfish, redfin, and bramble. Sunfish is allegedly equipped with a Snapdragon 730, a 4G-only Qualcomm chipset for mid-range phones. This makes sense: the Snapdragon 730 is the logical successor to the Snapdragon 670 found in the Pixel 3a and 3a XL, and probably carries a pretty similar price tag.

A 5G phone might not cost you a kidney next year, thanks to Qualcomm's Snapdragon 765 and 765G

A 5G phone might not cost you a kidney next year, thanks to Qualcomm's Snapdragon 765 and 765G

Last year, Qualcomm launched the Snapdragon 700-series SoCs to address a developing market segment that some have called "Premium B" to cope with the ongoing phenomenon of flagship cost runaway. The company later appended an offshoot skew in the 730G for the burgeoning gaming phone sector which presses value and performance to extremes. Today, in the same effective breath it announced the Snapdragon 865 with, the chipmaker has also spoken of the Snapdragon 765 and the 765G, and yes, they're the first in their series to get 5G support.
