Google Pixel 5 reportedly priced around S$1,000 but will have a mid-range Snapdragon 765G processor

Singapore not in the launch list

Coming soon – the new Google Pixel 5 is expected to cost around $1,000

Google has put up a teaser on its official online store in the states, announcing the arrival of 5G Pixel phones – Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a (5G).

Before you read further, do note that the new Pixel phones will only be available in these selected countries: United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, France, Germany, Japan, Taiwan, Australia.

That’s right – Singapore isn’t in the list despite having an official Google Store.

No Pixel 5 or Pixel 4a (5G) in Singapore

What we know so far (Pixel 5)

According to the leaks, the new Pixel 5 will be powered by a Snapdragon 765G, a mid-range processor rather than the top-tier 800 series. What this likely means is Google no longer wants to compete on having the beefiest hardware and rather on other aspects such as software or camera.

Popular tech YouTuber Dave Lee explains it.

Other features of the phone include an OLED display with 90Hz refresh rate, 128GB storage and 8GB memory, a new ultrawide camera, 4K video recording. 4080mAh battery and wireless charging.

Price & Availability

We know the Pixel 4a (5G) will be priced at US$499 (~S$688). Google, however, has yet to release the price on the Pixel 5 but reports online are saying it will likely be US$200 more.

It isn’t clear if Google will eventually sell the new Pixels here in Singapore but at this moment, your best bet of getting it (when it releases) might be through third-party importers without any official warranty.
