Here’s our first look at the Google Pixel 5 in Green
We’re nearing September 30th, which means that we’re about to see what Google has in store with the Google Pixel 5, the company’s latest and greatest smartphone. We already know that, despite Google’s strategy in previous years, the Pixel 5 won’t carry the flagship Snapdragon 800 series chip. Instead, it’s going for the upper mid-range Snapdragon 765G. But it will have 5G connectivity, the amazing cameras that have become a headline Pixel feature, and the latest Android 11 release out of the box. Google has notably managed to keep Pixel 5 leaks to a minimum compared to last year’s Pixel 4 disaster, but still, some leaks have made it through. Now, we have our first look at some Pixel 5 renders. Particularly, of a new color option: green.
Google notably does special color options for its Pixel smartphones every year. Last year, we saw orange, and this year, it seems like it will be green. Pictures of this color have surfaced from leakers Evan Blass, who shared a handful of press renders of this color option, and Roland Quandt, who shared a picture of the device alongside the other unannounced Google products.
The pictures shared by Evan Blass on Twitter show the Pixel 5 with a mint-colored back (that may look more grey than green to some people). The Pixel 5 itself notably brings back the fingerprint scanner that was gone with the Pixel 4, as this phone does away with all the Soli radar and face unlock sensors that were present in last year’s phone. Alongside the green color, the Pixel 5 will also be available in a traditional Black version.

The picture shared by Roland Quandt on Twitter shows the device laying down on a table alongside other unreleased devices such as the Nest Audio and the new Chromecast with Google TV. Here, the mint green tone is more evident than in the press renders.

The Pixel 5 is expected to be announced next week along with the Pixel 4a 5G (renders of which Evan Blass also posted today), the Nest Audio, and the Chromecast with Google TV. Are you excited about these new products from Google?
