Google launched the first generation of its Pixel line of smartphones back in 2016. Since then, we have seen many more amazing devices from the tech giant. The company has been working on its Pixel 5 flagship phone for a while now. Although most of the smartphone’s features are not yet confirmed, we are sure that there will be more leaks as we await the launch.
However, recent details emerging are seriously confusing as regards the product’s specs. This statement is due to the rumored possibility of the smartphone not coming with a flagship processor, regardless of its flagship nature.
AI Benchmark, a processor benchmarking platform, listed the Google Pixel 5 smartphone some time ago. The listing revealed that the Pixel 5 will not have a flagship processor, which is used in flagship phones as expected. According to information on the site, the Google Pixel 5 will be powered by the Snapdragon 765G processor when it is released.

Pixel 5 Flagship features
Tech analysts and reviewers expected the Google Pixel 5 to be powered by a Snapdragon 800 series processor. However, the available listings of the Pixel 5 are confusing, since the processor to be reportedly used is currently available for mid-segment devices. The reason for such a choice is unknown, and the tech giant hasn’t released any comment on such.
The Snapdragon 765G processor was announced at the end of last year, with supports for both 5G and high-performance gaming. The Pixel 5 will have 5G support, but that doesn’t explain the reason for using mid-segment processors in a flagship phone. The device is rumored to come with 8GB of RAM.
Although the full features of the phone are left unknown, Google will be announcing it in an upcoming event. The launch date of the device has already leaked. Hopefully, it will be able to impress users.
