Google has released two Pixel smartphones named Pixel 4a and Pixel 5 this year. Both of these are great value for money devices with exceptional camera quality but none of them is a premium offering. This has led to speculations whether there will actually be a new flagship Pixel coming down the line. It seems like there is a possibility that it will not only happen but a lot sooner than expected.
Max Weinbach, a well-known tipster, has tweeted that a "true flagship Pixel" is under development. It says that the flagship Pixel could arrive as soon as March 2021. It means we are less than half a year away from the official unveiling if the leak turns out to be true. However, the tweet is quick to clarify that it is still an "unsubstantial rumor".
This is the biggest rumor I've heard in ages, and I mean this is an unsubstantiated rumor I've heard from like 2 people so absolutely don't believe it, but apparently there's a true flagship Pixel coming out in like March 2021.— Max Weinbach (@MaxWinebach) October 29, 2020
Again, unsubstantiated rumor.
The last Pixel flagships to release were Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL that was released last year. There are many Pixel fans out there who are still interested in a new flagship product release. If such a phone actually exists, it will be interesting to see if Google releases Pixel 5 with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865 or Snapdragon 865 Plus processors.
While the report is undoubtedly an exciting one, we would suggest you take this with a pinch of salt. It is recommended that users wait for more details to emerge before setting any hopes or expectations for the device. We will keep you posted as more details will emerge.
