Google’s Pixel smartphone series is one of the most anticipated flagship series of all time. The present generation Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL were leaked relentlessly months before their launch. Unfortunately, concrete details have also been leaked about the Pixel 4 And Pixel 4 XL.
We are just a few months away from the announcement of the next generation Pixel Series. In this article, we have accumulated every bit of information like leaks, rumours, and renders for the unreleased Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL.
So here’s everything you need to know about the fourth-generation Pixel smartphones before it’s launch.
Pixel 4 And Pixel 4 XL: Design And Display
The design language of the entire Pixel series is somewhat similar. The first two generations of Pixel smartphones featured a two-tone glass and metal design back. While both the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL had complete glass construction. Consequently, we can expect the fourth-generation Pixel smartphones to sport a two-tone glass back.
This time around Google may increase the number of camera sensors from one to three in the upcoming Pixel 4 smartphones. The design aesthetics of the Pixel 4 and the bigger XL version from the initial renders do scream premium.
The display on the Pixel series has gradually improved over the past three years. Moreover, there is a significant reduction in bezels in the second and third generation pixel smartphone. That said, the humongous notch on the Pixel 3 XL housing the dual camera setup was a disgrace. Consequently, this time around the fourth-generation Pixel smartphones might sport hole punch displays.
As you might have guessed these hole punch displays look strikingly similar to the Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+.
The smaller Pixel 4 might feature a single hole punch while the bigger Pixel 4 XL might come with a bigger hole punch to accommodate two front-facing cameras. In my opinion, the hole punch displays are much lesser intruding then notch and they help maintain design consistency.
Pixel 4 And Pixel 4 XL: Processing Power And Storage
Every Google Pixel smartphone is powered by the latest flagship Snapdragon processor available at the time of launch. Consequently, this simple algorithm suggests that the fourth-generation Pixel smartphones will be powered by the Snapdragon 855 processor coupled with Adreno 640 GPU.
Additionally, we can except the base variant of Pixel 4 to offer 6GB RAM accompanied with 128GB storage. On the other hand the base model Pixel 4 XL might feature 8GB coupled with 128GB storage.
Expected Camera Configuration
One of the major highlights of the entire Pixel lineup is the exceptionally great camera quality. Accordingly, the new fourth-generation Pixel smartphones won’t be an exception. In addition to outstanding hardware, Pixel smartphone lineup heavily relies on AI and software processing to offer stellar results.
In fact, software processing has helped Google to simulate the portrait effect and it has also eliminated the need of including a depth sensor. That said, it’s fairly difficult to simulate wide-angle photos just with software alone. So we can except the bigger Pixel 4 XL to feature a secondary wide-angle lens. The smaller Pixel 4 would still feature a single sensor.
Similar to Pixel 3 XL, the Pixel 4 XL would also feature a front-facing dual camera setup. This setup might consist of a primary selfie camera accompanied by a wide-angle lens that will offer a wider field of view.
New Features And Expected Pricing
The fourth generation Pixel smartphones will run on Android Q out of the box. Furthermore, few reliable sources also suggest that the fourth-generation Pixel smartphones will now support two active SIMs. Earlier the Pixel smartphones used to ship with an eSIM.
As of not much information is available about the pricing of fourth generation Pixel smartphones. We can expect the Pixel 4 to retail at a price of $849 for the base variant and the Pixel 4 XL to retail for $999.
So these were some initial leaks and rumours about the upcoming fourth-generation Pixel smartphones. These two smartphones might release in the first week of October.
