    I like all the rumors about the Pixel 5 so far. Size seems to be a mystery still, I have seen rumors of 5.7", 5.8" and 6". I guess we will know for sure soon. I'm OK with a 760 / 765 processor, I'm sure it will do just fine with stock Android...and the price will be great. I am shocked to see Google give up on Project Soli and do away with Face Unlock only, and no Soli sensors. Seems like they threw in the towel pretty quick on that idea.

    Yup a shame they gave up early on the project... I know the processor will be fine... Thinking 5.7 or 5.8 screen... I'm most likely passing on it ..

    I apologize for coming to this discussion so late, but my interest in the Pixel just peaked when I received an advertisement email from Google. What attracted me was the price, $350! Really?? I have a handicapped brother that lives with us and is on my Verizon account. I was thinking it may be a nice upgrade from his Motorola Z3.

    I really like the specs that I have seen, but does anyone know if this phone supports wireless charging?

    Thanks!!

    If you are asking about the Pixel 4a....then No it doesn't. Wireless charging is one of the things Google leaves out of the "a" series, to keep the price so low. The Pixel 5 is supposed to have wireless charging, but is also supposed to be $699, much more than the 4a.

    The 4a does not have wireless charging. The Pixel 5 that officially gets announced tomorrow is supposed to have it. The other phone that gets introduced at tomorrows event is the Pixel 4a 5G. I honestly don't know if that version of the 4a will or will not have wireless charging capability.

    Thanks for the responses. I think the price, plus some of the really nice specs makes this phone so tempting.

    Does anyone here have the 4A, and if so, are you really pleased with it?

    I'm not sure if anyone has the 4a yet, haven't seen any posts about it. My wife has had the 3a since January and really likes it. Google camera, smooth clean, pure Android OS, timely updates, all the other Pixel perks....and all for under $400.

    So far so good. I put the cases and screen protectors on them before I started sipping...
