The Google Pixel 5 is rumored to launch on 30 September, but we're already seeing plenty of juicy rumors about this upcoming camera phone. Recently, CAD-based renders of the Google Pixel 5 have been shared online – and now they've been joined by some interesting potential details about the phone's specifications.

Apparently the Google Pixel 5 will have a 6" 90Hz OLED screen and a dual camera unit on the back with a combination of a regular wide angle main camera and an ultra wide angle secondary camera.

According to Android Central, which cites people familiar with Google's upcoming phones, the Google Pixel 5 will have 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. It will also have a Snapdragon 765G chipset, which means the phone will likely be capable of 5G. 

Previous rumors have pointed towards the Google Pixel 5 having a 3,080 mAh battery, but Android Central now claims that this isn't correct and that it will be "considerably larger" than the Google Pixel 4's 2,800 mAh battery – although it doesn't have any specific details. Apparently, the Google Pixel 5 will also support 15W Qi wireless charging and 5W reverse wireless charging (where you can help out a friend by giving their phone some charge from yours).

At present, there's no concrete information on what the Google Pixel 5 will be priced at. However, Google has confirmed that the Google Pixel 4a 5G will cost $499, so we'll likely see the Pixel 5 priced somewhere slightly above that region. However, we won't know for sure until the official launch on 30 September.
