While the announcement of the low-cost Pixel 4a (tentative) has been delayed, an expected render of the next flagship, the Pixel 5 (tentative), has been released online.
Pigtou, a company that designs and sells smartphone-related accessories, has teamed up with anonymous leaked account @xleaks7 to create these renders based on CAD data from the Pixel 5 (tentative). At first glance, it looks a lot like the Pixel 4a(tentative) that has been tipped off so far, giving the impression that it's the rumored Pixel 4a XL that was cancelled. However, according to @xleaks7, that's not the case.
Not the design everyone was expecting but still the first look of #Google #Pixel5 based on leaked CAD drawings. + 4k video + dimensions. Enjoy guys!— xleaks7 (David Kowalski) (@xleaks7) July 6, 2020

The rear camera is similar to the Pixel 4 and the front camera is now a punch hole. As such, it doesn't appear to have Soli radar and the fingerprint sensor is back on the back.
It will be approximately 144.6 mm long, 70.4 mm wide and 8 mm thick (9.5 mm include the camera bump on the back) . The width has been increased, but it is slightly more compact than the Pixel 4 due to the loss of the top bezel.
Speaking of Pixel devices, parts, specifications, and images of actual devices have been leaked early on in recent years, to the point where we felt that it was more of a new promotion. But so far, little information has been released about the Pixel 5, including the specifications.
Android Police chief editor David Ruddock pointed out that this is not because the company has succeeded in containing the information, but simply because nothing has been decided yet. He tweeted that Google's hardware team may be in total chaos right now.
the total absence of fresh leaks around Pixel 5 in ages, as @hallstephenj points out, is not about Google doing a better job at locking down leaks.— David "bury me with my golden arm" Ruddock (@RDRv3) July 6, 2020
It's because Google has not decided what it is doing yet. I imagine the hardware team is in total chaos right now.
In previous years, the new Pixel would be announced in October, but this year's announcement of the lower-priced Pixel 4a (tentative) has already been delayed and there are rumors that it won't be announced this year. The Pixel 5 (tentative) may also be unlikely to be announced in October as well.
