Google’s next Pixel smartphone could come a lot sooner than we think


Google’s Pixel strategy this year seemed a little strange. While there’s nothing wrong with the phones, it seemed a bit odd that Google chose not to equip any of them with flagship chipsets from Qualcomm. Instead, they were launched with mid-range hardware where Google appeared to be focusing more on price and 5G rather than performance.

This isn’t necessarily a bad thing as it made the Pixel phones a bit more accessible, but in case you were looking forward to a high-end Pixel handset, you might have to wait until 2021, but the wait won’t be too long.

This is because according to a tweet by Max Weinbach, he has heard from a couple of sources that apparently Google might be launching a new Pixel phone in March 2021, and that this will be a “true” flagship Pixel device.

Presumably this handset will use a higher-end Qualcomm chipset, but we’re not sure if Google will choose to equip it with the Snapdragon 865 or 865+, or if they might use the newer Snapdragon 875 that is expected to power the bulk of 2021’s flagship phones.

That being said, Weinbach does note that these are unsubstantiated rumors and he has expressed some skepticism about their claims, so it’s probably best to take it with a grain of salt for now until more sources can either verify or debunk these claims.
