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 (opens in new tab) 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.
