The Black Friday sales season is coming! These deals are the best available right now, but the coming weeks may bring even better value for Prime members on a wider range of products.
The Google Pixel 5 is now officially available to buy as of 15 October. Google launched the Pixel 5 at its 30 September special event, alongside a 5G variant of the Pixel 4a.
The phone launches with Android 11 and features a 6in 90Hz display, powered by a 4080mAh battery and Snapdragon 756G chip, and a dual rear camera that pairs the standard lens with an ultrawide. Unlike past flagship Pixel phones, there isn’t a second larger 5 XL option.
In addition to the 4a 5G, Google also launched the new Chromecast with Google TV and a Nest Audio smart speaker.
How much does the Pixel 5 cost?
The Pixel 5 comes with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage and costs £599/€629/$699. It’s available in two colours: Just Black and Sorta Sage.
Read our full Pixel 5 review to see why our Consumer Tech Editor Alex Walker-Todd calls it “…perhaps the most balanced Android phone to date, not to mention a great choice for those after a capable small phone, 5G phone or camera phone.”
Orders before 19 October include a free pair of Bose QC 35 II headphones. You’ll also get three months each of Stadia and YouTube Premium, along with 100GB of Google One cloud storage.
That price makes it less expensive than the standard Pixel 4, which costs £669. See the best Pixel 4 and 4XL deals here. There is no XL version of the Pixel 5, but the cheaper Pixel 4a 5G is larger – but with lower-specs – if that’s what you’re looking for.
Where to buy the Pixel 5 – SIM-free & on contract
The Pixel 5 is available to buy from Google though stock looks unavailable at the moment. Of course there are a few other retailers also offering the new Google phone.
Again, if you buy the phone before midnight on 19 October – from Google or other participating retailers – the company will also throw in a free pair of noise-cancelling Bose QC 35 II headphones.
