S.Google fans are very much expecting the new Pixel smartphone, and it should be ready in autumn this year. However, friends of search engine smartphones could get a nasty surprise: the leaker Jason C wants to know that Google is only bringing its Pixel 5 onto the market in the XL version.
And it not only takes up a lot of space in the buyer’s pockets, it also empties their wallet. According to Jason C, Google is charging the smartphone $ 699. According to Media report
the Pixel 5 XL costs 685 euros in Germany, taking into account the reduced VAT. Quite steep for a smartphone that actually wants to settle in the middle class.
That’s why the Pixel 5 XL could get so expensive
Google wants the Pixel 5 XL to have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor and 8 gigabytes of RAM. Similar hardware can be found in the OnePlus Nord for 399 euros. So far, interested parties have therefore assumed a pixel price between 400 and a maximum of 599 euros. The 6.67 inch (16.94 centimeter) OLED display with a refresh rate of 120 Hertz could put an end to these asking prices. But that’s not certain: all information on hardware and prices is based on unconfirmed rumors. It remains to be seen how much customers will actually pay for the Android 11 smartphone from Google in the end. Until then, Google disciples will have to be content with the Pixel 4a for 349 euros, which will appear in early October 2020.
