Google officially launched the Pixel 5 at an event on 30 September special event, alongside a 5G variant of the Pixel 4a, and it’s available to pre-order already.
The phone launches with Android 11 and features a 6in 90Hz display, powered by a 4080mAh battery and Snapdragon 756G chip, and a dual rear camera that pairs the standard lens with an ultrawide. Unlike past flagship Pixel phones, there isn’t a second larger 5 XL option.
In addition to the 4a 5G, Google also launched the new Chromecast with Google TV and a Nest Audio smart speaker.
How much does the Pixel 5 cost?
The Pixel 5 comes with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage and costs £599/€629/$699. It’s available in two colours: Just Black and Sorta Sage. You’ll also get three months each of Stadia and YouTube Premium, along with 100GB of Google One cloud storage.
That price makes it less expensive than the standard Pixel 4, which costs £669. See the best Pixel 4 and 4XL deals here
There is no XL version of the Pixel 5, but the cheaper Pixel 4a 5G is larger – if lower-specced – if that’s what you’re looking for.

The Pixel 5 is available to pre-order from Google ahead of a full release on 15 October. If you buy the phone before midnight on 19 October – from Google or another participating retailer – the company will also throw in a free pair of noise-cancelling Bose QC 35 II headphones.
