All Google Pixel 4 Specs and Features You Should Know «Android :: Gadget Hacks

It's always a big deal when the company that makes Android releases a new phone. The Pixel series from Google has made a name for itself in three short years. Now is the time to compete with the main players. Nevertheless, Google should like the way the Pixel 4 and 4 XL compete against the iPhones and galaxies of the world.

If you're unfamiliar with Google's Pixel series, imagine it as a dot halfway between Samsung's Galaxy and Apple's iPhone. It has something of the simplicity and integration of an iPhone, but with the most customization and software capabilities of a Galaxy. The other things it has to offer are excellent access to Google and the Google Assistant and the best camera on any smartphone.

Important Data

The Pixel 4 was released on the 15th. Pre-orders will commence on the day of the event and will be published within weeks of the announcement date.

  • Release date: October 2019
  • Preorder: October 15, 2019
  • Announced: October 15, 2019

Storage Capacity

Something we could not see was the return of the 64 and 128 GB storage options. Although phones now have options of 512GB and 1TB and many phones start with at least 256GB, Google seems to be bucking the trend.

This low-disk option is less harmful because unlimited storage is available on Google Photos. In the gaming environment, this storage can easily be consumed. While Stadia does not need storage (like everything stored in the cloud), mobile gaming apps are capable. This stock was insufficient in 2018, let alone now. And like its predecessor, it will not support expandable storage.

Price for all

Both the Google Pixel 4 and the XL 4 are said to increase the price by $ 100. At a retail price of $ 799, this would mean that the smaller of the two phones starts at $ 899. Based on the starting price of $ 899 for Google Pixel 3 XL, we expect a starting price of $ 499 for Pixel 4 XL. This is the first pixel smartphone with a variant over $ 1,000.

  • Price: $ 899 (Google Pixel 4), $ 999 (Google Pixel 4 XL)


The case uses the same material as most flagship smartphones in 2019 , Glass on the front and back for wireless charging and an aluminum frame for a long life. Google has even confirmed some of the basics of design by publishing a rendering of the phone on its official MadeByGoogle Twitter account. The striking dual finish is gone this time and, like most other phones, is replaced by a single finish. It will be available in three colors: Just Black, Clearly White and Coral (orange).

We do not currently know what the dimensions are, but initial rumors suggest that they will be roughly the same size as its predecessor. However, we can assume that it is waterproof and dustproof to IP68, supports all four wireless carriers (as well as US Cellular and Google Fi), and does not have an infrared blaster. Not only is it supported by all four airlines, but it is also officially promoted by all four airlines, unlike the previous versions offered exclusively for Verizon launch.

  • Height: 5.78 inches (Google Pixel 4), 6.31 inches (Google Pixel 4 XL)
  • Width: 2.71 inches (Google Pixel 4), 2.97 inches (Google Pixel 4 XL)
  • Depth: 0.32 in. (0.37 in. With camera survey)
  • Weight: Unknown
  • Dust / Water Resistance: IP68
  • Supported Carriers: Verizon, AT & T, T-Mobile, Sprint, US Mobile, Google Fi
  • Infrared Blaster: no

As with all of today's phones, we expect the Pixel 4 to have one Operating Temperature 32 ° F to 95 ° F

  • Operating Temperature: 32 ° to 95 ° F
  • Non-operating Temperature: ## º to ## º F
  • Relative Humidity: # # º to ## º F non-condensing
  • Operating altitude: to ##, ### foot (though possible) more) [19659042] Software

    The Nexus / Pixel series was always an option for Google , the world di e introduce latest version of Android. Pixels are almost always the first devices to receive new versions of Android, and they have a warranty of at least three years. The Pixel 4 and 4 XL will be Android 10 and at the time of their release, they are one of the few phones running the latest version.


The Pixel series always runs on standard Android. Although this version is not necessarily ASOP (Android Open Source Project), it is similar to "pure" Android outside of custom ROMs. Pixel users have some improvements, such as: Active Edge and additional special features that Google wants to add.

What's new is the ability for Google Assistant to intervene during a held call. Imagine calling an ecommerce website for a return and waiting for 30 minutes. Instead of having to wait ridiculously long for someone to speak with him, according to 9to5Google, you can press a button and Google Assistant will wait for you. As soon as an actual person gets on the other line, you will be notified by Google Assistant and can jump back.

According to XDA, Google Assistant is getting smarter. The information displayed on the screen can now be used to specify more customized options. An example shown is the ability to respond to an incoming message only with your voice. The user interface also gets a new coat of paint.

Another addition is pixel themes. According to XDA, Google is adding a new option to the default launcher on pixels, which sorts out the new icon shapes, themes, and fonts they've added to Android 10 Developer Options . This app has already been referenced on Pixel devices on Android 10 and will likely be available for all Pixel devices and not just for Google Pixel 4 and 4 XL. Screenshots show that in addition to the new customization options in Developer Options, the app also lets you customize the background image and clock of the environment display.

Also preloaded is a voice recording app that can distinguish between different audio types and can use the new live subtitle feature to transcribe your recording. You can also scrub along the audio timeline to jump to specific points in the recording.

  • Version: stock Android (pixel version)


The screen size of Pixel 4 XL has been slightly reduced from 6.3 inches to 6.23 inches. The Pixel 4 will actually be larger at 5.7 inches. Both have OLED panels (made by Samsung) with support for HDR and always-on display. In terms of resolution, Pixel 4 has the same resolution as its predecessor, but the Pixel 4 XL actually has a higher resolution of 3040 x 1440 (the Pixel 3 XL had a resolution of 2960 x 1440).

The screen uses the P3 color space for the first time (the same as that used by iPhones), resulting in higher color accuracy. It will also support HDR10 content on YouTube and Netflix. The "forehead" is as big as the Pixel 3, but the chin is one of the smallest in the industry. Symmetry fans may not like it, but the additional solos and secure face unlock sensors are housed in this top bezel, and at least they have not used a notch.

Both Pixel 4 devices can output games with 90 fps, 30 fps more per second than the default screen. To enable it, you'll need to enable Smooth Display, a feature that allows Android to dynamically adjust the refresh rate based on running apps. When you play a game, 90 Hz will be turned on. When you make a call, the screen will go to 60 Hz.

The Pixel 4 also has a feature called Ambient EQ, which is essentially Google's version of Apple's True Tone. Based on the ambient lights, the display adjusts the white balance automatically to enhance the viewing experience. The screen becomes more uniform and offers only one less function. IPhone fans can claim that they have pixel devices.

The SoC of choice for Android flagships in 2019 in the US is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855. The Pixel 4 and 4 XL use this processor, but it's not overclocking like last year's Google Pixel 3.

Memory has been increased to 6 GB. The first three pixels had 4GB of RAM, resulting in persistent issues that Google's community has requested. Although 4 GB is sufficient for Android, this results in an inconsistent performance compared to other flagship ships.

Then there is the Neural Core, which apparently replaces the Visual Core from earlier pixels. It controls all of the image processing, including the pixel's HDR + function, which allows for stunning photography. In addition, all of the machine learning (more to do with it later) calculations required for the new features will be executed quickly, so you do not have to wait for completion.

  • RAM: 6 GB RAM
  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 855
  • Chip Size: 7 nm
  • CPU Frequency: 2.84 GHz (1x Gold) , 2.41 GHz (3x gold), 1.78 GHz (4x silver)
  • CPU cores: 8 cores (4 gold + 4 silver)
  • GPU: Adreno 640


Surprisingly, the battery in Google Pixel 4 will be reduced. Despite the increased screen size and the higher refresh rate, the battery gets slightly smaller at 2,800 mAh. If the SoC is not clocked, is expected to be a relatively weak battery life.

The opposite is true for the Pixel 4 XL. The battery increased to 3,700 mAh, which corresponds to an increase of 8%. Both models support wireless charging via the Qi standard and fast wired charging via USB power delivery. The delivery includes an 18 W USB PD charger.

  • Battery: Lithium Ion Battery
  • Capacity: 2,800 mAh (Google Pixel 4), 3,700 mAh (Google Pixel 4 XL)
  • Wired Charging: Yes, USB Power Supply
  • Wireless Charging: Yes, Qi Store

Front Camera

There are multiple sensors in the top bezel of the phone, one of which is the front-facing camera. The remaining image sensors are used for face detection or Motion Sense. The Pixel 3 had a standard selfie lens and a wide angle lens, but the Pixel 4 only had a selfie camera: a wide angle lens shooter. Google applies an algorithm to photos taken with the front-facing camera to correct distortions due to the larger field of view.

  • Resolution: 8 MP
  • Aperture: Unknown
  • Zoom: Unknown
  • Lightning: Unknown
  • Image Stabilization: Yes, EIS [19659009] RAW support: Unknown
  • Object recognition: Unknown
  • Formats: Unknown

Rear View Camera

Leaks indicate that Google Pixel 4 will house all of its cameras in a square module similar to the Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro. The Pixel 4 comes with three cameras, two camera lenses and a 3D ToF sensor (flight time). Rumor has it that the second lens is a telephoto lens that gives Pixel 4 the much needed optical zoom.

The Pixel 4 has a square camera flash on the back, which contains two image sensors and a 3D ToF sensor (time of flight sensor). The image sensors are located behind a standard lens and a telephoto lens. Bokeh effect is much better than its predecessor thanks to additional data. In addition to the cameras, the square modules also include an LED flash and a microphone. There's an 8x hybrid zoom that uses the telephoto & # 39; 2x & # 39; uses and combines with the algorithms of Super Res Zoom.

There are now double-exposure controls. A slider controls the overall exposure of the scene while the other controls only shadows. This all happens live in the viewfinder.

Then there's "Live HDR", which lets you see exactly how HDR + applies to your photos before you record them. According to Wired, "HDRNet" (the underlying algorithm) can make adjustments in less than 20 milliseconds. Google has also added a new "Motion Mode" feature that lets you create action-quality footage. Night Sight improves in terms of speed and the ability to take photos of the night sky.

  • Resolution: 12 MP (Wide Screen) Angle), 16 MP (Tele) and ToF
  • Sensor Size: Unknown
  • Aperture: Unknown
  • Zoom: 2x optical and 10x digital
  • Autofocus: Phase Detection
  • Flash: Two-Color LED
  • Image Stabilization: Yes, OIS and EIS (Wide and Tele)
  • RAW support: Yes
  • Lens cover: Sapphire crystal
  • Object recognition: Unknown
  • Formats: JPEG, RAW

Media Formats

Since it is a phone developed by Google, it contains the usual list of Android-supported codecs. This list contains some new entries: Opus, AV1 and HDR10 +. Opus is an open and royalty-free codec that offers better quality than MP3. AV1 is an open and license-free video codec that acts as an alternative to H.264.

  • Audio: MP3, AAC, AAC +, WMA, AMR-NB, AMR-WB, WAV, FLAC, APE, OGG, MID, M4A, IMY, AC3, EAC3, EAC3-JOC, AC4, Opus
  • Video: MKV, MOV, MP4, H.265 (HEVC), AVI, WMV, TS, 3GP, FLV, WEBM, HDR10 +, AV1


The Google Pixel 4 includes two infrared cameras for secure face unlocking, a premiere for pixel devices. As with Apple's Face ID, these sensors are used to unlock the phone even in low light conditions. It contains a floodlight source and a point projector for mapping your face.

  • Accelerometer: yes
  • Ambient light: yes
  • Barometer: yes
  • Color Temperature: yes
  • Compass: yes
  • Gravity: no
  • Gyroscope: yes
  • Hall: yes

  • GPS: yes
  • aGPS: yes
  • Glonass: yes
  • BeiDou: no
  • Galileo: yes
  • QZSS: no

Motion Sense

The Pixel 4 is the first device that uses the Soli Radarchip used by Google. Soli can decrypt gestures with great precision, allowing you to perform actions on your phone without touching them.

Known as Motion Sense, Google has added several gestures that run close to the phone (that's right, near .; You do not have your hand like the LG G8 ThinQ) awkward to hold the phone. Motion Sense is not widely available due to the use of high radio frequencies. According to XDA, it will be available in the following countries:

  • American Samoa
  • Austria
  • Australia
  • Belgium
  • Bulgaria
  • Canada
  • Croatia
  • Cyprus
  • 19659169] Czech Republic
  • Denmark
  • Estonia
  • Finland
  • France
  • French Guiana
  • Indian Ocean Territories (both MCCs are listed)
  • French Polynesia
  • Germany 19659174 ]
  • Guadeloupe
  • Guam
  • Hungary
  • Ireland
  • Italy
  • Korea
  • Latvia
  • Lithuania
  • Luxembourg
  • Malta [19659179174Netherlands
  • New Caledonia [19659169] Northern Mariana Islands
  • Norway
  • Poland
  • Portugal
  • Puerto Rico
  • Romania
  • St. Martin
  • St. Pierre
  • Singapore
  • Slovakia
  • Slovenia
  • Spain
  • Sweden
  • Switzerland
  • Taiwan
  • United Arab Emirates
  • United Kingdom
  • United States of America
  • American Virgin Islands
  • Wallis and Futuna

Motion Sense adds several useful gestures and features. One is known as "Reaching to Check the Phone". When you reach for the device, the secure face scanning sensors will activate and begin to authenticate you. This unlocks the phone faster without you having to swipe across the screen.

Pictures from This is Tech Today / YouTube [19659120] Another gesture is "Skip songs". If you wave from right to left or from left to right (you can change direction), you will move to the previous or next track.

Finally, there are "Silence Breaks" that allow you to do this. Swipe over it to disable alerts and mute calls. And like all these gestures, you can do this without touching the screen.

Connectivity [19659007] The new system-on-a-chip system for Google Pixel 4 supports the Wi-Fi standards 80.211.ad, ay and ax. However, as most phones have not yet included these additional standards, we do not expect Pixel 4 to meet these standards for the moment. However, this could change so that we keep you up to date.

Because Dual SIM is more heavily supported in Android 10, we think it makes sense to use the unlocked version of Google Pixel 4 Dual SIM. In addition to the fact that the Pixel 3 was a dual SIM card (via a second eSIM slot), it makes sense for Google to restore this function.

The use of Bluetooth devices is also updated. Fast Pair, Google's response to Apple's W1 / W2 chip, will have a new "Device Details" page in the latest version of Android. Here you can see the battery of the case and each earphone separately. Use the updated Find My Device app to find any Fast Pair device.

  • WLAN: 802.11a / b / g / n / ac 2.4 GHz + 5.0 GHz
  • Bluetooth: 5.0
  • NFC: yes
  • Cellular: nano-SIM, eSIM
  • Port: USB Type-C

With Pixel 4, which recently passed through the FCC, we now have it listing its mobile bands. Interestingly enough, it will be available in the US through all four major network operators – AT & T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon.

  • FDD-LTE tapes 2, 4, 5, 7, 12, 13, 14, 17, 25, 26, 30, 38, 41, 48, 66, 71
  • CDMA EV-DO Rev A BC0, BC1, BC10
  • GSM / EDGE (850, 1900) MHz)


The Pixel 4 is the first Android phone in the US with secure face unlocking. With a range of sensors, the Pixel 4 can detect your face no matter how you hold your phone. Unlike the iPhone, you do not have to swipe up to unlock the phone. Once you face your phone and the soli sensor detects that you may want to unlock your phone, it will unlock. And your facial data and all other sensitive transactions are stored locally on the Titan M security chip for ultimate protection.

  • Fingerprint Scanner: no
  • Face Scanner: yes
  • Iris Scanner: no
  • Manual Authentication: Password, PIN, Pattern, Wipe

Scope of delivery

The content of the box is essentially the same as in the previous year. However, a noticeable gap is the use of USB-C earphones. We therefore recommend taking a pair like Acessorz USC C earphones. If you want one that uses Google's fast pair, you can also use Libratone USB-C, which provides the ability to send voice commands to Google Assistant.

  • Pixel 4-Phone
  • 3.3-foot USB-C to USB-C cable (USB 2.0)
  • 18-W USB-C-PD power supply
  • Quick-change adapter
  • SIM eject tool
  • Quick Start Guide


Google plans to upgrade the wireless Pixel Buds year. The Pixel Buds 2 will be released in spring 2020 at a price of $ 179.

The other accessory that Google provides during the Made by Google 2019 event is a new USB C-Titan key. This is a physical key built to the FIDO standard and provides stronger two-factor authentication. Unlike software-based tokens (or SMS and e-mail), you have to physically carry the key with you. Unlike Google's iteration earlier, it has a USB-C port that makes authentication easier when you connect it directly to the phone (with the previous keys, you need to pair them with Bluetooth or NFC).
