Samsung Galaxy Note 10 may be the center of attention for everyone at the moment, but that hasn’t stopped the leakers from sharing new info about other phones.
Plenty has been revealed on the Google Pixel 4 already, but now, folks over at 9to5Google have shared an exclusive leak which extensively details the specs on the upcoming Google flagship.
Let’s dive right in.
Google Pixel 4 and 4 XL will have 5.7-inch and 6.3-inch displays respectively. The smaller Pixel 4 will feature FHD+ screen resolution and the bigger one will have QHD+ (3040 x 1440p). Both models will have OLED panels.
What’s new here is that these two Pixels will have a 90Hz “Smooth Display” rivaling the likes of OnePlus 7 and recent gaming phones.
Hardware and Battery
Both devices are going to be powered by the Snapdragon 855 rather than the overclocked 855+.
After years of settling with 4GB RAM, Google is finally adding 6 gigs of RAM in the Pixel 4. There’s still the usual 64GB and 128GB storage variants but without a microSD card slot.
The battery department is a bit disappointing. There’s only going to be a 2800mAh battery in the vanilla Pixel 4. Combining high refresh rates and OLED panels with a small power cell is not a good idea.
Thankfully, the Pixel 4 XL has a bigger 3400mAh power cell, but do keep in mind that it also has QHD+ screen resolution and the high 90Hz refresh rate.
At the back, there is a large square-shaped camera bump on the Pixel siblings, which consists of a 12MP shooter with PDAF and a 16MP telephoto lens. Google is also rumored to be working on a DSLR-like attachment for the Pixel 4, which will be available as a separate accessory.
At the front, there is going to be a single 12MP selfie camera alongside a suite of sensors for face unlock and motion gesture support.
Google Pixel 4 is set to arrive in early October at Google’s 4th annual “Made by Google” event, perhaps on the 8th or 9th. Pre-orders are expected to start right after the announcement with an official launch a week later.
Pricing on the phones is still uncertain.
