Google's upcoming Pixel 5 would reportedly release with an XL variant only, according to a new rumor. Earlier this week, the upcoming smartphone from the search engine giant was spotted on the AI benchmark. While the AI listing offered the processor of the upcoming device, this latest rumor seemingly gives away the retail price of the Pixel 5 and its variant.
New Google Pixel 5 Leak
The new set of information about the Google Pixel 5 came from Twitter user ImjustSayingJC. According to the insider, the Pixel 5 would only have the XL variant. He added that this might be the only model that the search engine would be allowed for sale.
If the latest tip about the Google Pixel 5 is to be believed, it appears that the company does not plan on releasing small screen flagships this year. The insider's information could also mean that Google would devote its focus on the Pixel 5 XL, which could mean a better device for optimum user experience, along with significantly improved hardware.
The tipster also shared that the Google Pixel 5 Xl would retail at around $699. The pricing is interesting, considering that it is $100 cheaper than the Pixel 4 at launch. Some fans find the price too much, given that the upcoming device does not house a flagship SoC.

Equipped with a Titan M security module, the Pixel 4a comes with a 3.5mm headphone jack and a fingerprint sensor at the back. Rumors have it that the Google Pixel 5 and the Google Pixel 4a might arrive together in India sometime in October.
