During this afternoon’s “Launch Night In” event, Google announced its latest smartphones: the Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a (5G).

The Pixel 5 is a $699 5G smartphone that supports wireless charging. It’s also water resistant, but what’s really exciting is its bigger, 4,080 mAh battery. That’s a huge improvement over the Pixel 4’s 2,800 mAh battery.

“Pixel 4a (5G) and Pixel 5 also have all-day batteries that can last up to 48 hours with Extreme Battery Saver,” Google wrote. “This mode automatically limits active apps to just the essentials and lets you choose additional apps you want to keep on.”

Tech specs include a 6-inch FHD+ (1080 x 2340) OLED display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G SoC with Adreno 620 GPU, 8 GB of LPDDR4x RAM, and 128 GB of storage. The rear and front cameras are 12.2 MP and 8 MP, respectively.

The Pixel 4a (5G), on the other hand, costs considerably less ($499) but lacks the Pixel 5’s water resistance and wireless charging. It also sports a lesser, 3,885 mAh battery and lower amount of RAM (6 GB).

“Pixel 4a (5G) will be available in Japan on Oct. 15 and eight other countries starting in November, and Pixel 5 will be available starting Oct. 15 in the U.S. and eight other countries,” Google noted. Both phones can be pre-ordered starting today on the Google Store.
