Everything We Know About Google Pixel 4

With Google Pixel 3a and 3a XL released, and with the upcoming Android 10, hype for the next versions of Pixel – Pixel 4 and 4 XL – has only increased. The new models are scheduled to be released later this year. So let’s take a look at all the information we know so far about the Pixel 4 and 4 XL.

Design

As we know, over the years, Google has maintained a conservative design for the Pixels. But with Pixel 4 and 4 XL, we’ll be seeing something different.

Google shared an official render of the back of the phone on June 12th. Instead of the two-tone design of past Pixels, the new ones appear to have a sleek glass back.

The large rear camera housing now has two cameras instead of one. Also in the squircle is and LED flash and a new sensor, the purpose of which is unclear as yet.

On July 8th, additional renders were leaked, this time showing both the back and the front of the Pixel 4 XL.

For the front, Google has ditched the infamous notch and is going with a more traditional design of large-ish bezels at the top and bottom.

The biggest highlight seems to be the 90Hz display. Also, RAM has been bumped up from 4GB to 6GB. Battery life has been a constant pain point for the Pixel series, and unfortunately, that doesn’t seem to be changing. The Pixel 4’s 2,800 mAh could still be problematic.

Motion Sense Features

In 2015, Google announced its new project called “Project Soil”. Project Soli is a specially-designed chip that allows you to control devices by making hand gestures above them. All these years later, it’s finally being integrated into a product with the Pixel 4.

Cheaper 4a?

Pixel 3a and 3a XL were well-received and suited people who were looking for the Pixel experience at a cheaper price. So, it’s reasonable to expect Pixel 4a. Google is likely to release the 4a early in 2020.

Pixel 4 and 5G

As has been evident, Google is not known for incorporating cutting-edge new technology in its Nexus and Pixel phones. So, even though there is hype around 5G amongst the carrier and phone makers, Pixel 4 is not expected to support the next-generation network.

Release Date

Google has stuck to its regular pace of releasing its Pixel phones in early October. There’s still plenty of time for the release to be adjusted or shifted, but there’s no indication that that’s going to happen. An announcement is expected to be made in early October.
