There are also rumors that Google might have to delay the Pixel 5 release due to the COVID-19 pandemic and other production-related issues. Here are more details on Google Pixel 5 release date, specs, features, and design leaks.
Google Pixel 5 Design and Specs Leaks
The Pixel 5 series might bring the fingerprint scanner back and might also include a 5G model as per the leaked renders. Google replaced the fingerprint security system in Pixel 4 with Face ID after Apple and Samsung did the same with their flagship devices. While it is considered that smartphone makers hardly bring back any removed features such as 3.5 mm jack, there could be some exceptions based on public demands.
Steve H. McFly from OnLeaks has shared the Pixel 5 leaked renders on Twitter and it contains a slot for the rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, similar to the Pixel 4 series. While the leaker says that it is confusing as most of the Pixel 5 leaks show different specs and features which is kind of contradicting.
Because it seems the latest (and still unconfirmed) #Pixel5 leaks sowed huge confusion, these actually are the three devices floating around (with their respective dimensions and alleged moniker), compared with the (confirmed) #Pixel4a… Not sure it will help but there you go… pic.twitter.com/tzsZFRIAb9

Apart from that, it seems that Google will bring 5G connectivity to the Pixel 5 series as the models are named Pixel 5, Pixel 5 XL, and Pixel 5 XL 5G. It means that Google is Snapdragon 765G in the Pixel 5 series which will make it less powerful than the Snapdragon 8 series devices.
Google Pixel 5 Release Date and COVID-19 Delay
Google Pixel 5 release date should be set in October as per the company’s annual schedule. However, the Pixel 4a has still not arrived in the market due to the production issues created by the COVID-19 pandemic. But the recent leaks suggest that Google has almost completed the production of Pixel 5 devices and the smartphone should be ready for a fall launch.
