- A new leak suggests that the Pixel 5 could be equipped with a 120 Hz screen.
- The display should also be 6.67 inches tall.
- This would be an increase in size and refresh rate compared to the Pixel 4 XL.
After months of delays and leaks, Google finally launched the Pixel 4a this week. On this occasion, an autumn start for Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5 was confirmed.
Now display insider and founder of Display Supply Chain Consultants, Ross Young, has tweeted that one of these upcoming phones will have a large screen and a 120 Hz screen. Check out the tweet below.
And it is 120Hz!

You have to assume that the phone in question is the Google Pixel 5, as it is said to be the right Google flagship and its predecessor packed a 90 Hz screen last year. In addition, Google’s Pixel A series is a mid-range device, and budget phones tend to see more compromises. For example, the standard pixel 4a does not have a 90 Hz screen, let alone a 120 Hz option.
If these screen specifications are confirmed, it also means that the Pixel 5 has a slightly larger screen than the 6.3-inch panel of the Pixel 4 XL. This is probably due to a hole design that results in a higher sieve / body ratio.
However, it is worth noting that the frequent tipster Ishan Agarwal claimed that the Pixel 4a 5G is the phone in the picture on the right in this article. Either the Pixel 4a 5G has an even larger screen than the alleged 6.67-inch display of the Google Pixel 5, or the Pixel 5 is actually the device on the right.
