What is Google planning for the Pixel 5?
According to Twitter user Jason C, Google will only bring out the Pixel 5 as an XL version. What this means exactly is not clear from the tweet but it probably means that Google is doing away with the smaller version of the Pixel 5 Series.

According to Jason C, the mid-range equipment should also be reflected in the price: Google was thought to be bringing out the Pixel 5 for just under €600.

If the latest rumours are true, we won’t have to wait long before we get official information about Google Pixel 5 XL. It should be possible to pre-order the smartphone from October 8, 2020. There is a launch event in talks, which will probably only take place online thanks to the limitations brought by Covid-19.
