The Google Japan Twitter account today tweeted that the Pixel 5 was available for pre-order and then quickly deleted it, meaning it looks like the company pulled the trigger on a planned announcement tweet a bit early (via 9to5Google). Here's the translated text of the tweet:
"Google Pixel 5, the ultimate 5G-enabled smartphone from Google, is now available for pre-order. Enjoy fast movie downloads and professional-grade photography. 5G experience with the best specs."
Google Japan also said that the Pixel 5 will be priced at ¥74,800 ($708.85 USD). To compare, the Pixel 4 starts at ¥89,980 and the Pixel 4a is ¥42,900.
The Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a 5G will be officially announced on Wednesday, September 30, during Google's Launch Night In event. It's already been confirmed that the Pixel 4a 5G will cost $499 in the US, and rumors say that the Pixel 5 will be $699.
