Google’s upcoming Pixel 4 series smartphones have been making quite some noise in the last few weeks due to the company’s teasing and leaking of information, and that trend is still continuing. While the devices are likely to be launched in October (if Google sticks to the regular schedule), we already know quite a few things about them already. The latest leaks about these devices reveal a number of other interesting things that were not known until now. So let’s dig into the details.
What do we know about Google Pixel 4
First of all, the leaks coming today are courtesy of 9to5google. According to a recent report of this publication, both Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL is likely to come with 90Hz AMOLED displays. While Pixel 4 will have a 5.7-inch FHD+ unit, Pixel 4 XL will have a 6.3-inch QHD+ unit. These displays will be branded “Smooth Display” by the company, probably because the term Fluid AMOLED has already been used by OnePlus.
Dual-camera setup on the back is no new detail – we already know about it ever since Google teased an image of the device. But now we know that the main sensor in this unit is still going to be a 12mp sensor. The secondary sensor supporting it will be a telephoto lens with 16mp resolution, which means that if you want to take ultra-wide angle shots on a Pixel smartphone you need to wait till 2020.
All is not lost for the lovers of Pixel series and photography. The company is said to be working on a DSLR-like attachment for Pixel 4, which may be made available as a separate accessory. Details about this attachment are still scarce though, so we can’t say with certainty what exactly is it going to offer in terms of design and capabilities.
The battery capacity of both smartphones has also been revealed in the report. Pixel 4 is likely to get a 2,800 mAh battery, while Pixel 4 XL is being said to come with 3,700 mAh battery. We’re skeptical of this detail though, because the capacity of Pixel 4 battery, if indeed 2,800 mAh, is less than the capacity of Pixel 3 (2,915 mAh). The capacity of Pixel 4 XL battery is also not much higher than the capacity of Pixel 3 XL (3,430 mAh).
Finally, there are details about the RAM capacity and storage, which are being pegged at 6GB instead of 4GB that was found in the devices of last year. If you were expecting anything more than 6GB, then you’re in for a disappointment. Rumored storage options to be made available are 64GB and 128GB.
Fortunately, other specifications will be as per the current standards of the mobile industry (i.e. Snapdragon 855 processor, stereo speakers, connectivity features, etc.), and there will also be the latest Android Q operating system with guaranteed updates for 3 years. Let’s wait for the company to send out the invites, till then sit and enjoy the leaks.
