The Google Pixel 5 device features an FHD+ 6.0-inch display, which has a 90Hz screen refresh rate. Its aluminium chassis is made from recycled aluminium, which allows for better grip.

The camera system includes a 12.2-megapixel primary sensor with a 1.4um pixel size, a 16-megapixel ultrawide-angle camera, and a relatively bright lens with an f/1.7 aperture.

Also, the Pixel 5 breaks record as the first Google device with the capability of recording 4K videos at 60 fps.

For security, the smartphone arrives with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor for unlocking the device.

The Google Pixel 5 houses a 4,080mAh battery, and it carries support for 18W fast charging technology. It supports wireless charging and reverse wireless charging feature.
