The hours expire until the presentation of Pixel 5 on Google, but a few more details continue to be said about the phone that Google will present at its event on September 30. We now have a better idea of the materials that Google plans to use for this year’s flagship phone.
According to Roland Quandt, the body of the Pixel 5 will be made entirely of recycled aluminum. The phone will also use Corning Gorilla Glass 6 on its 6-inch OLED screen on the front.
This revelation is important in two ways. First, it tells us how Google plans to differentiate the Pixel 5 from the Pixel 4a 5G, the budget phone that will also be shown at this week̵

Quandt’s tweet seems to suggest that the Pixel 5 will contain more high-end materials than the Pixel 4a 5G. This phone will likely follow the design of the Pixel 4a, released last month, and will use a plastic-clad chassis as a way to reduce costs.
Remarkably, the all-aluminum back of the Pixel 5 – seemingly would complicate the phone’s ability to charge wirelessly. However, in his report on the discovery of Kwandt. 9to5Google suggests that the Pixel 5 can use a cutout to allow the phone to connect to wireless chargers.

There were reports last week that the Pixel 5 would be available in a shade of green, and Quandt’s tweet confirmed that the name would be Sorta Sage. There is even a close look at the back of the phone, revealing spots of black mixed with green.
Despite its aluminum and glass materials, the Pixel 5 can be a different kind of flagship for Google, as the phone maker misses premium features such as a more powerful processor and telephoto lens to sell its device for less than competing flagships. Rumors point to a price tag of about $ 699 for the Pixel 5. Very soon we will find out how accurate this speculation is and exactly what Google is giving up to offer a phone at this price.
