We never really got to experience the Pixel 4 in India. Now fast forward to a year later we get to see the Pixel 5 dropping at a cool $699 in the US. Indian pricing and availability are still not available at the time of writing this and Google hasn’t pointed out if the Motion Sense feature will be carrying over to Pixel 5 as well. Long story short, its the feature that did not allow Google to launch the Pixel 4 smartphones back in 2019 because of Govt. restrictions. Anyway, Pixel 5 is rocking Snapdragon 765G with 8GB of RAM and 128Gb storage. There are no other variants here. Just a Pixel 5 and a Pixel 4a 5G. Both phones support 5G and Google’s counting on the sweet software magic to rope you in. The 12MP and 16MP ultrawide cameras at the back are rocking some serious smarts according to Google. It can do Portrait shots with Night Sight now, and you can even use Portrait Light (a new feature) on the Pixel 5 to increase and adjust the intensity and the direction of light to illuminate your selfies perfectly. They even bumped up the battery to 4080mAh.
