Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL: All We Know About the Upcoming Google Flagships Till Now

Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL will likely debut sometime around in October or in the first week of November, but still, there have been plenty of chatters around these phones

Highlights
  • Google Pixel 4 will sport dual camera sensors for the first time
  • The company has revealed substantial information about the design of the phone already

Even though the launch of the Pixel 4 is months ahead, it is not stopping the internet from creating a sensation about this phone. The Pixel 4 has been in the headline recently courtesy of all the leaks, rumours, speculations and also an official Google announcement of the phone. It is worth noting that the Google Pixel will only be launched sometime in October in the Indian market and other markets like Verizon has hinted (Google’s USA partner). However, as leakers leaked some of the information about Pixel 4, Google followed and then leaked its phone, revealing some of the exclusive details about the Pixel 4 from its official Twitter account. Combined with other information and rumours available out there about the Pixel 4, now there is a handful of things which we know about this device.

Design

As per the pictures shared by Google, the phone comes with a metal and glass design. The images also point out towards the presence of a similar frosted glass finish like we get to see on the Pixel 3. It is also likely that Google might not follow the other phones out there by ditching on the curved glass back design which the users usually prefer owing to the comfortable hold. However, this could still be total speculation.

We also expect Google to continue with the dual tone finish on the Pixel 4 with the upper part clad in a shiny finish and the rest of the body in a matte finish, similar to the Pixel 3. Also, on the rear side, the Google Pixel 4 will be using a square camera module although it is not yet known how bumpy it is going to be, however, if it is resembling the Huawei Mate 20 Pro, then it should be okay with the users.

Although we know some stuff about the rear side of the Pixel 4 phones, there is very little information about the front side of the device and thus to find out we will have to indulge in the leaks about the Pixel 4. As per the leaks, the phone will sport display lines to house the front cameras and some other sensors which would facilitate gesture usage to navigate without touch. The Google Pixel 4 might also sport additional sensors to support Face Unlock, like in the recent Apple phones.

Pixel 4 Camera

For the first time, Google will be using dual cameras on its Pixel phone. Until now, the phone manufacturer has used a single sensor on its phone and has yet been able to deliver an unmatchable camera performance. However, it will be interesting to see how Google continues that legacy with dual sensors or even some more sensors in the square camera module.

Pixel 4 Hardware and Other Specs

According to other information out there, the Pixel 4 will also come with dust and water resistance capabilities, and they will also likely pack stereo speakers. Another possibility is the presence of an OLED screen of 6-inches on the Pixel 4 and a 6.5-inches screen on the Pixel 4 XL. The processor inside these phones is most likely to be the Snapdragon 855 SoC from Qualcomm. The phone will certainly come with Android Q.

As for the launch date of the phone, Google will likely introduce the phone in India sometime in October or in the first week of November. Like it is the case every time, the Pixel 4 will be the first one available for pre-order with the sales starting a week later sometime around November 10. It is also likely that the Pixel 4 will be priced around Rs 65,000 whereas the top-end variant of the Pixel 4 XL could stretch up to Rs 85,000.
