Google Pixel 5 confirms switch to SnapDragon 765G with no flagship processor

There is growing evidence that Google’s Pixel 5 will not use Qualcomm’s SnapSnapdragon 865 flagship platform, opting instead for the SnapDragon 765G mid-range platform. On May 20, Android Police editor-in-chief David Ruddock confirmed on Twitter that Google’s Pixel 5 is equipped with qualcomm SnapDragon 765G mobile platform, which he claims the Pixel 5 XL is also using.

XDA, on the other hand, found a “modem_model_mappings_json” string in Android 11 Developer Preview 4, which contains “g7250”, indicating that Google’s Pixel model will use the SnapDragon765G mid-range mobile platform.

In addition, Google suggested in a survey that the Google Pixel 5 costs $699 (about 5,000 yuan).

The XDA points out that the $699 Google Pixel 5 is almost impossible to use the SnapSnapdragon 865 flagship platform, because the SnapSnapdragon 865 costs far more than the SnapDragon 765G, and Google makes sense to use the SnapDragon 765G at this price point.

Unfortunately, other details about the Pixel 5 apart from the processor are not immediately available. Previous Android 11 codes have suggested that the Google Pixel 5 Series supports reverse wireless charging.

As is customary, the Pixel 5 series will be unveiled in October.
