The new Google Pixel 5 will definitely not officially make its way to the Kenyan market. However, that won’t stop retailers and individuals from buying it and reselling it to the few enthusiasts who know about the device lineup. The new device sort of starts a new direction for Google devices with the new price, and the departure from flagship specifications. In Kenya, we expect a price point of about KES. 80,000 – factoring in taxes.

The device comes alongside the Pixel 4A 5G which only differs with the Pixel 5 in RAM, lack of water-resistance and wireless charging, smaller battery, and material used. The new Pixel 5 competes with the new Galaxy S20 FE among other devices from Xiaomi and OnePlus.
