Google’s Pixel plans get even more confusing as images of Pixel 5s surface
It’s no secret that the Kovid-19 epidemic has had a significant impact on Google’s 2020 range of smartphones – the Pixel 4A, originally slated for launch at Google I / O in May, was canceled and released. Pushed back to August. This latest pixel leak shows an engineered sample of a phone that the firmware calls the Pixel 5s, but before you get excited about a new pixel prospect we didn’t already know, this could only be 5 pixels.
Google has already told us that it will be the next two phones Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5, And these leaks look like the second From what we know about it. Below is the reason for finding the Pixel 5s name in the ‘About Phone’ section of the settings Alex Dobby of Android Central on Twitter. According to him, the code name ‘Brumble’ (4a 5G) should initially be 5 pixels, while ‘Redfin’ (5 pixels 5) was intended to be 5s pixels, but delays and other factors could lead to alignment changes and marketing deviations. Since these images are an original engineering sample, it often runs outdated firmware showing a previous device name.

Maybe not, but it all seems confusing. Michal Rahman of XDA He says he has heard that ‘Brumble’ may have been branded as Pixel 4A XL. Explaining that there are no XL models – most likely one or more of the planned phones will be discontinued – so we do not know exactly what Google’s full 2020 lineup should look like.
Interesting. I learned that the name of the pixels we fall into has some changes. So I’m sure at some point “Brumble” (now 4a 5G) will be 5 pixels and “Redfin” (now 5) will be called Pixel 5s. (Note that this is an older EVT unit with older f / w) https://t.co/IlyZTQjw9F

According to Rahman, FCC for 5 pixels. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. Some of these variants may also be carrier exclusions. Despite all this confusion, we often only get Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5 (in various configurations) from Google. We wonder, however, what this might be. Maybe more leaks will shed more light on what we can lose.
