The newest rumor says that Google goes to launch a “true flagship” Pixel in March 2021. There isn’t any cause to even take into account this one, although.

To be honest, the most recent particular person to utter the phrases out loud (in 2020 Twitter is the brand new out loud) is Max Weinbach and even he would not appear to provide it a lot weight, calling unsubstantiated.

After all, lots of people are ignoring the unsubstantiated half and solely do not forget that Weinbach does get lots of early leaks and has a very good observe document. That does not change something this time, although, and I’ll must say nope. This one is not occurring.

Google’s {hardware} division has seen extra leaks than Mario.

There are lots of good causes to not purchase into this one. A Pixel coming in March means the software program is generally finalized and the cellphone is getting into its manufacturing stage. Even Samsung or Apple cannot snap fingers and make telephones seem; it takes months of labor to get the primary cargo right into a field. If a brand new Pixel was previous the prototype stage somebody, someplace would have taken a blurry picture or one thing. Take into consideration how early we noticed the Pixel 4a. And the Pixel 4, and Pixel 3, and so forth and so forth.

A few of Black Friday’s greatest offers are already dwell proper now so do not miss out!

One more reason is that Android’s code overview, the corporate makes use of Gerrit, is obtainable for everybody to learn on-line. It is stuffed with edits and feedback and regardless that somebody tries to sift by way of them and delete issues like a reference to the Pixel 5a (most likely what’s coming in Q2 2021) not all of Google’s secrets and techniques may be wiped from the face of the online earlier than they’re seen. Folks like to dig by way of Google’s code overview particularly to search for stuff like new units.

Lastly, what precisely is a real flagship Pixel anyway? Is it a Pixel 5 with a Snapdragon 875 inside and a $1,100 value outdoors? Or is it a Pixel 4a 5G with that new Snapdragon and that top value? Google has correctly, for my part, moved away from tremendous costly telephones as a result of it is aware of it could’t promote tremendous costly telephones with out including extra unique software program options and pissing off each different cellphone maker.

I feel we’ll see the Pixel 5a someday in early 2021 as a result of it has been “leaked” in Google’s code.

Some persons are hoping that this may be the rumored foldable Pixel. I do suppose Google has to make one ultimately if Android goes to be nice on folding telephones however now is not the time. Google can as a substitute work with Samsung and Microsoft to determine all of the fundamentals and simply what must be added to Android for foldables earlier than it makes one with solely customary APIs for builders to make use of. March 2021 is not that point.

So here is what I count on, however that is even lower than a rumor and simply an opinion of somebody who has seen and lined Google’s {hardware} releases for the previous 10 years: Pixel 5a round Might. Most likely a single cellphone with the most recent Snapdragon 700 sequence chip and 5G radios. A Pixel 6 someday within the fall, positioned between Samsung’s new Word and Apple’s new iPhone so it has no probability of promoting nicely.

The Pixel 5 is Google’s flagship. Do not count on that to vary for at the least a yr.

I do know lots of people are hungry for one more costly Pixel cellphone with a greater SoC inside, however I simply do not see it occurring any time quickly. Within the meantime, the Pixel 5 is Google’s new “flagship” and it is a rattling good cellphone.
