"It can take a splash or spill, no problem" reads the Google site, making it clear that a degree of waterproofing is one of the main Pixel 5 features that the company is keen to shout about.

Wireless charging is also a key feature, as is the 'Extreme Battery Saver' mode which can apparently get you 48 hours of battery life.

Of course, the Google Pixel 5's connection to the powerful 5G network is also a big deal. And you'll even be able to share the power of 5G with your mates, using the '5G hotspot' feature.

In other news, unlike the new Chromecast, the Google Pixel 5 WILL work with the Google Stadia game-streaming platform.

And in terms of colours, right now 'Just Black' and 'Sorta Sage' are the two options that you have to choose from.
