Jon Prosser, of latest Apple leaks fame, dropped a number of particulars in regards to the Pixel 4a delay the opposite day, saying the Pixel 4a delay is even worse. The cellphone could be unveiled on July 13th slightly than early June. “Seems like they’re able to ship,” the leaker mentioned. “The resolution is usually based mostly on market evaluation.”

Smartphone gross sales have suffered up to now quarter due to the well being disaster. Millions of individuals misplaced their jobs all over the world as international locations went in lockdowns to scale back the unfold of COVID-19, and new smartphone purchases aren’t a precedence for many individuals.

More attention-grabbing is the Pixel 5 tidbit within the tweet. The cellphone is “possible pushed again,” though Prosser doesn’t supply a possible Pixel 5 launch date.

Google often unveils new {hardware} in October, and that’s when the brand new Pixel telephones are introduced. The Pixel Four was launched on October 15th and launched two weeks later. It’s unclear if the Pixel 5 will get an October announcement this 12 months.

Prosser mentioned in a earlier leak that Apple is contemplating suspending the iPhone 12 launch to October in order that it may well enhance its probabilities of internet hosting an in-person occasion. New iPhone launches are often scheduled within the second week of September, and the telephones hit shops by the top of the month. The COVID-19 state of affairs will complicate issues this 12 months. Some iPhone 12 variations are anticipated to be delayed to October, which can be one purpose for Apple to additionally postpone the keynote. Prosser additionally mentioned a number of days in the past that Apple needed to unveil its first-gen AR glasses as a “One other thing” second on the finish of the iPhone occasion. But Apple would solely do it with a daily press convention, not a web based occasion.

These occasions may alter Google’s Pixel 5 launch plans as nicely. We already know the Pixel 5 would be the most disappointing premium Pixel in historical past to date, because the handset will function a processor that will probably be much less highly effective than the Pixel 4’s CPU. If the iPhone 12 launches in October, then Google would simply must postpone the Pixel 5. The least expensive iPhone 12 will price $649 however present efficiency superior to the Galaxy S20 and OnePlus 8. The Pixel 5 is rumored to start out at $699, however pack a chip that’s not capable of match the efficiency of 2018 iPhones, not to mention the iPhone 11 or iPhone 12. Such market circumstances would undoubtedly power Google to delay the Pixel 5. This is simply hypothesis based mostly on Prosser’s remarks. There may very well be loads of different elements that might contribute to a Pixel 5 delay, together with manufacturing and logistics points associated to the coronavirus pandemic.
