Google Pixel 5 without Snapdragon 865 to keep it affordable

As we know, Pixel 4 did not meet all Google expectations when launched. The next version of the smartphone will also be critical to the sustainability of the range.

In particular, a high-end smartphone from Google can be priced lower than its predecessor. The explanation? It will skip Snapdragon 865, preferring a more modest SoC.

On Twitter, David Ruddock, editor of the Android Police website, said his sources are now able to confirm that Pixel 5 and Pixel 5 XL will run Snapdragon 765. It is a mid-range SoC company, which is particularly found on Redmi K30.

First, when all of the pixels (except for the “A” models) even benefited from a high-quality chip from Qualcomm.

Ambition? Lower the production costs (and thus sales) of the Pixel 5 so that it finds a wider audience than the unfortunate Pixel 4 phone, which is said to be selling less than Pixel 3a.

Soli, this revolutionary radar is equipped with Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL. Thanks to him, Google was able to offer on its Motion Sense smartphone an innovative motion detection function ... but it's not very practical in practice.

In recognition of the failed rant service, which is not bad news, Pixel 5 could actually come at a much more affordable price than the € 769 currently requested by Pixel 4 for Google.

Also remember that Pixel 4a, the Google novice smartphone, is also expected in the coming weeks. It should embark on Snapdragon 730 SoC plus a unique camera that will undoubtedly do wonders. It can also be priced lower than Pixel 3a at the time.
