The Entire 2020 Lineup of Google’s Pixel Smartphones Has Reportedly Leaked

By Novak Bozovic / July 11, 2020

Google has been strangely quiet about its Pixel smartphones recently, giving us mixed signals via leaked code snippets. Like it happened in the past, the company has been leaking bits and pieces of information about its 2020 Pixel lineup via various Android apps. However, it looks like we've got our most significant leak yet – and this one could be the most confusing one yet.

As reported by 9to5Google, whose team dove deep into the latest beta version of the Google Search app, the company is working on two more Pixel smartphones. They were previously known under the codenames of "Redfin" and "Bramble," but as it turns out – they will be called "Pixel 4a (5G)" and "Pixel 5." To see why this is confusing, we need to take a more in-depth look at their specifications.

Both of these smartphones will be powered by a Snapdragon 765G processor, which (as you can assume) comes with 5G support. However, a while back, another Pixel smartphone leaked – codenamed "Sunfish." That one is expected to be powered by a mid-range Snapdragon 730 processor, should come with a 5.8-inch display, 6GB of RAM, and 64GB/128GB storage. In other words, we're talking about a mid-range phone, which could be a successor to the Pixel 3A. Now, considering that Google hasn't launched the Pixel 4A yet – we can only assume that we're talking about that specific smartphone here.

As you can see, we have three unreleased Pixel phones here. There's the Pixel 4A, which will be the most affordable of the bunch. Also, this one is going to be a mid-range non-5G smartphone. And then, instead of getting Pixel 5 and Pixel 5A smartphones – Google will most probably release Pixel 4a (5G) and Pixel 5 smartphones. So, could this be an indication that the Pixel 4 XL (released last year) is going to be the last large-screen high-end smartphone offered by Google?

It's still too early to tell what Google plans to do with its Pixel lineup this year. However, one thing is clear. The company will most likely alter its strategy this year by introducing three phones simultaneously (instead of two). We're also talking about a whole different branding strategy, which sounds very confusing as of right now. Therefore, it's clear that this year's "Made by Google" event is poised to be hugely exciting and quite different.
