Google Is Expected To Launch A 5G Pixel Phone On October 15
According to a media report, Google is working on a 5G phone and is expected to unveil it along with Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL at the hardware event on October 15. Google’s 5G phone will give a tough competition to the 5G-supported iPhone models that are suspected to debut in 2020.
If launched, the model will overtake the 5G developments by competitors like Samsung and Huawei. Google’s 5G phone is rumoured to arrive as the Pixel 4 XL 5G, boasting paramount specifications that are expected to include 8GB of RAM — the highest capacity in the Pixel family.
Google is reported to start its test production of a 5G Pixel smartphone. A 5G Pixel phone is currently being tested in China. There is a possibility that the company can shift the production process outside China for the devices shipping to the US so that it can ward-off tariffs owing to the US-China trade dispute.
If the 5G-enabled Pixel smartphone treads into the market, the model will beat Apple, which is one of its biggest competitors. Simultaneously it will be a tight race between them and Chinese brands like Vivo, OPPO and OnePlus that have already launched a 5G-enabled smartphone. The Google 5G phone is said to be powered by octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC. Rumours have been floating around that it will come up with 8GB of RAM that could debut as the Pixel 4 XL 5G.
Besides the 5G-enabled Pixel smartphone, Google is also expected to unveil a smartwatch and a laptop. While there are a plethora of reports on the Internet about a Made by Google laptop – Google Pixelbook 2 – this is the very first time Google will be rolling out a smartwatch and we can’t wait for it.
