The Google Pixel 5 may not be powered by a flagship-grade Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset as per a listing that hints that the Pixel 5 wouldn’t exactly be a flagship 5G phone as we have come to see with the Pixel lineup. The company recently announced the mid-range Pixel 4a which is a successor to the Pixel 3a series. The 4a is expected to be available in India sometime in October but the Pixel 5 is already a no-show as the same has been confirmed by Google previously.

As per a listing on AI Benchmark, the Pixel 5 could be powered by the mid-range Snapdragon 765G chipset, most recently seen on the OnePlus Nord. This falls in line with earlier speculations about the phone not running on a flagship chipset and instead, settling for a mid-range SoC. The Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a (5G) have been confirmed as Google’s first 5G-enabled smartphones that will be making it to the U.S., Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, France, Germany, Japan, Taiwan and Australia.

The listing of Pixel 5 reveals the phone to be running on 8GB RAM and Android 11 to boot. The Snapdragon 765G chip has an octa-core CPU running at upto 2.4GHz with Adreno 620 GPU and is made on a 7nm fabrication process which improves efficiency along with some of the Elite Gaming features onboard. 

Earlier, a leaked Google Camera app was torn-down by an XDA developer who discovered codenames indicating that the Pixel 5 could come with a Snapdragon 700-series processor. Google could be aiming for an affordable Pixel 5 with 5G support, rumoured wireless charging, punch-hole cutout and dual rear cameras and as such a mid-range chip would help in keeping costs down.

Perhaps there is a Pixel 5 XL in works that could be powered by the top-end Snapdragon 865 chip but there’s no official word yet. For 2020, Pixel 4a is the only phone from Google that will be available in India and while the price isn’t out yet, it is expected to retail under Rs 30,000 when it arrives in the country. In comparison, the OnePlus Nord with Snapdragon 765G, quad cameras, a fast-charging battery and OxygenOS starts at Rs 24,999 in India so it will be interesting to see how Google makes it a stand out in the market.
