Last month, the Pixel 4A 5G and Pixel 5 appeared alongside the accompanying sheet. A new leak clearly shows what the Pixel 5 key is, but with a weird “Pixel 5S” moniker.
We have a much clearer shot of the Pixel 5 than the leak in late August. The images were tweeted this evening by Jose Antonio Ponton, a Mexican radio host. The Pixel 4 has 5G and 5 not significantly available in that country.
Starting from the rear, we see the new square camera bump where the flash spectrum and Flickr sensors are on top.
We got a very clear view of the white / silver spotted body texture across with the fingerprint sensor. We also see the black volume rocker and the lock button. There are several barcodes, one of which lacks regulator approval and refers to “R3 EVT”. Redfin is the codename of the Pixel 5, on the other hand the engineering validation test is a step in the hardware manufacturing process.
The stickers cover a notched back pattern that probably serves as another way to identify the primary units, while the “G” that Google uses during prototyping has a unique symbol in its place.
Meanwhile, the second shot shows the “About Phone” screen today. This is the first time we’ve seen Pixel 5 while the screen is running. The top bar doesn’t have time / date and other status icons, so it’s running the previous build of Android “R”.
The mystery of this leak is how the “model” is identified as the “Pixel 5S”. The “s” Monica was popularized by Apple, but our best guess is that it probably refers to the Pixel 5 variant with or without the MimiWave 5G. Since “s” usually means good, it’s probably the former.
Earlier this month, the FCC revealed that two of the four Pixel 5 devices – the GD1 YQ and the G6 Ki3 – will support both the MMWave and the Sub-6.
