The first reputable Pixel 5 renders have now leaked, showcasing what looks to be a remix of a very familiar design seen previously.

We’ve already seen some less reliable renders appear online, but this time around, renders have come courtesy of the man with the best track record to date. Steve Hemmestoffer, aka, @OnLeaks shared the high-resolution renders in collaboration with Indian outlet PriceBaba.

The design feels like a combination of the recently released Pixel 4a and the Pixel 4, taking the best of both designs and merging them into one device. So what can we glean from these Pixel 5 renders that we don’t already know? Well, in all honesty, nothing really major, as Google themselves revealed some design tidbits when unveiling the Pixel 4a a couple of weeks ago.

Fans of the physical fingerprint reader will be happy, as the rear-mounted capacative fingerprint reader is set to return, while the square camera bump first seen on the Pixel 4 and 4 XL last year is set to return, according to the renders.

The expected specifications of the Google Pixel 5 include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G 5G-enabled chipset, at least 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, and battery sizes are not yet known. Again, these are still rumor, but the Pixel 5 renders suggest that the device will measure in at 5.7 to 5.8 inches with an upper-left punch-hole notch mimicking that of the Pixel 4a.

We believe that there will be no Pixel 5 XL model this year. Instead, we’ll see the Pixel 4a 5G slot into that space for those wanting a larger display-laden smartphone. While the Pixel 5 renders showcase a familiar design thanks to our own digging, we do know that this device is likely to differentiate itself from the Pixel 4a 5G by including some exclusive software features such as reverse wireless charging — or Battery Share.

It’s also expected to come with an IP68 water and dust-resistance rating, among what we’re sure will be some other notable alternations — including no headphone jack. Luckily, we already have a good idea of pricing, as Google teased that the Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5 will start at $499.

What do you think of the Pixel 5 renders? Are you a fan, or does the design skirt too fine a line with other Pixel hardware? Let us know down in the comments section below.
