Pixel 5

Quote:
Google is calling out a few things that separate out the Pixel 5 from the newly announced Pixel 4A, including IPX8 water-resistance, reverse wireless charging, more RAM, and a stronger Corning Gorilla Glass 6 panel. Notably, it lacks a 3.5mm headphone jack, though, something its cheaper siblings offer.

The display is a 6-inch 2340 x 1080 OLED panel in a 19.5:9 aspect ratio with a 90Hz refresh rate, which features a hole-punch selfie camera. Thanks to the removal of the Motion Sense camera — and the hefty top bezel it required for its radar array — there’s now a full edge-to-edge display this time, with no notch or bezels. (There isn’t even a small chin at the bottom, setting it apart from the cheaper Pixel 4A.)

Rounding out the specs are 8GB of RAM, 128GB of internal storage, a 4080mAh battery, IP68 waterproofing, and 18W USB-C fast charging. And on the 5G front, the Pixel 5 will also support both sub-6GHz and mmWave 5G, which means that it should work with almost any major 5G network.
From The Verge

$699 or €618.77, pre-order. https://store.google.com/product/pixel_5

The article says available from Oct 15th, whether that applies here I'm not sure.

Very tempting was thinking maybe this or the Xperia 5ii but the 300+ euro price difference along with free QC 35s kinda wins it for my I'll keep thinking hmmmm...

Cancelled my S20 FE preorder and bought this. Coming from iPhone and it was always gonna come down to the 2, but the cameras and plastic build of the FE just put me off. Plus it's €100 more.

Got the Sorta Sage and I see some 20 minutes later it's sold out on the Irish store.

Free set of Bose wireless headphones if you pre order by the looks of it.

Pixel 5 : €618.77 / $699
Pixel 4a 5G : €490.89 / $499
Chromecast : €69.99 / $49.99

Very inconsistent conversions. Seems like Europe is in particular being shafted with the Chromecast price.

Just ordered the black one. Don't need the headphones but can sell them on easy enough I reckon.

Waiting for Vodafone to list it, they are normally 50-100 cheaper then Google and then offer another 50-100 off if switching number. Would be a great deal with free headphones.

You'll be waiting a while I'd say, don't think they stocked the Pixel 4!

Doubt they'd have a porting discount either, they only usually have that on their lower end phones. Don't think they're usually cheaper than the Google store either, I think the pixel 3A was just an exception.

Seeing Vodafone Ireland are mentioned as the only Irish retailer I am pretty sure they will stock it soon.

They do have porting offers on high end phones, they had one on Note 20 Ultra recently for 100 off.

They have always been cheaper than Google. I remember buying Pixel 3 and 3 XL 100 cheaper than Google. 3a and 3a XL were same.

Pre-ordered one, glad I waited was going to go for the 4xl as a replacement for a 2xl. I think this works out as a better upgrade

That was also true of the Pixel 4, but then they never stocked them.

Yeah I remember the Pixel 3 / 3 XL being cheaper alright, but then Google discounted the phone a few weeks later to near Vodafone's price, and many people were waiting weeks for their phone to arrive from Vodafone anyway. I'm pretty sure they didn't offer any porting discount with the 3 / 3 XL either.

Not knocking your suggestion though, I'm currently rocking a 3A from Vodafone.

Bit miffed they dropped face id. Use it on my pixel 4 frequently ..might see if it returns in the 6

Apart from potential battery life doesn't seem much if an upgrade from the 4

The US pixel 5 is different, its a more expensive variant with mmwave.

I wonder will they be locked or unlocked like the 3a?
