Pixel 5 is likely to come with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 765G chipset and a 4,080 mAh battery.

Google is all set to launch its new Pixel phones, the Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5 in the global event happening at the end of this month. Ahead of the anticipated launch of Pixel 5, a full spec leak has come across. Reported in German by Win Future, the leak reveals the specifications as well as the cost of the Pixel 5 smartphone. The device is likely to feature a 6-inch screen with 1080 x 2340 OLED display and a 90 Hz refresh rate.

Along with HDR support, the product will be protected with Gorilla Glass 6. The fingerprint sensor for the phone has been placed at the back of the phone. In line with previous leaks, the Pixel 5 is set to come with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 765G chipset. This means it would not support mmWave 5G either.
