Google's latest flagship steps back from the Apple vs Samsung arms race. Rather than raise the price and stakes, the follow-up to last year's Pixel 4 drops a few features, learns a few new tricks and tries to position itself as the no-compromise candidate for those who want a premium Android experience at less than a $1000.

To that end, the Google Pixel 5 itself boasts a Snapdragon 765G processor, a 6-inch OLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate, 8GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, a 4080mAh battery and a dual-lens rear camera. That last one is noteworthy in that it augments the primary camera with a secondary an ultra-wide lens rather than the telephoto found in the previous Pixel 4.

If that's a recipe you like the sound of, here's a quick rundown on how much the Google Pixel 5 costs in Australia.


In Australia, the Google Pixel 5 has a recommended retail price of AU$999.

For comparison, last year's Google Pixel 4 started at AU$1049. It's clear that Google have a natural hierarchy in mind here, with the basic Pixel 4a priced at AU$599 and the more-future-proof Pixel 4a 5G priced at AU$799.

Google say that the phone will launch in Australia from October 15 and be available outright through the Google Store, JB Hi-Fi, Officeworks and Harvey Norman.

On A Plan

In addition to above, the Google Pixel 5 will also be available on post-paid plans through all three of Australia's major telcos: Telstra, Vodafone and Optus.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
