During a virtual event today, Google unveiled two new phones, the premium Pixel 5 and the more affordable Pixel 4A 5G. The Pixel 5 serves as the successor to last year’s Pixel 4 and brings new features including 5G connectivity, an ultra-wide camera and a much larger battery. The phone costs $699 (£599, AU$999) and will be available in the US from retailers on Oct. 29 with preorders starting today.

As Google’s marquee handset, the Pixel 5 represents the tech giant’s latest offerings in Android 11 software, like a new Hold For Me calling feature, and top-of-the-line hardware. But the device faces stiff competition from several phones, including the popular iPhone 11 and the newly announced Galaxy S20 FE. Devices from smaller companies, like the OnePlus 8, aim to cut the Pixel 5’s share of potential Android users as well.
