With the new year comes a new pair of smartphones from the company behind the Android platform. It seems that only a few months ago Google announced the Pixel 3 and 3 XL with their slightly disappointing design. Apparently they have heard the critics and will deliver for the first time.
Thanks to the acquisition of 2,000 HTC engineers who previously worked on the Pixel devices, Google is now fully in the hardware business with the Google Pixel 3 and 3. XL is the first fully developed smartphone in-house. The Google Pixel 4 (and 4 XL) are designed by the same team, but this time it will not look like the previous pixels.
However, this change is not without compromise. As with the headphone jack, features for better design are lost. However, due to early leaks, this is a victim that fans can afford.

The Google Pixel 4 has a brand new design for the front and back of the phone with minimal bezels and no indentations. The upper and lower bezels are also minimal, which forces removal of the forward facing stereo speakers. It will use facial recognition similar to face recognition and will eventually equip the rear cameras with multiple lenses.
As with each of the last pixel starts, Google Pixel 4 is likely to start in the first two weeks of October. This was later confirmed by Evan Blass who leaked a Verizon timeline announcing upcoming phone versions, including Google Pixel 4. Pre-orders will start on the day of the event and will be published within one week of the announcement date.
Release Date: October 2019
Pre-Order Date: October 2019
Announced: October 2019
Something we did not have in sight 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.
Available storage: 64 GB and 128 GB
Expandable storage: No
Price for everything
We expect both Google Pixel 4 and 4 XL increase the price by $ 100 , At a retail price of $ 799, this would mean that the smaller of 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.
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 back has disappeared this time and, like most other phones, has been replaced with a single surface.
Frame: Aluminum, Glass
Finish: White, Black, Mint Green
We do not currently know how big the dimensions will be, but early rumors suggest it will be about as big 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. Active Edge returns and allows you to access Google Assistant by pressing the phone pages.
The Pixel Lineup always runs in series with Android. Although this version is not necessarily ASOP (Android Open Source Project), it is similar to "pure" Android outside of custom ROMs. There will be some improvements for pixel users, such as: Active Edge and additional special features that Google adds to Pixel 4.
Version: Stock Android (Pixel Version)
The Pixel 4 XL has a small screen magnification from 5.5 inches to 5.7 inches (the Pixel 4 has the same size like its predecessor). Both will have OLED panels (more than likely made by Samsung) with support for HDR and always-on display. In terms of resolutions, it's the same as last year when Pixel 4 uses FHD + resolution and Pixel 4 XL uses QHD + resolution. This will also be a color-accurate display that uses the P3 color space for the first time (the same one used by iPhones).
Rumor has it that the "forehead" will be as big as the Google Pixel 2 XL, while the chin will be one of the smallest in the industry. Since the chin is limited by the screen drivers connected to the bottom of the screen, the screen is either turned upside down or bent. Each method has some drawbacks, the former usually resulting in a scrolling effect and the latter causing higher costs because the bending method is a difficult task. In any case, expect that the phone looks similar to the Sony Xperia 10.
With the launch of Google Stadia in November, we speculated that Google would use a higher refresh rate for the display to showcase the new video game platforms' streaming capability, and we were right. Rumors say that both phones will use a 90 Hz display. At this refresh rate, both Pixel 4 devices can play games at 90 fps, 30 fps more per second than on the standard screen. While Stadia will limit games to 60 fps on launch, Google promises higher frame rates (120 fps) in the future.
Rumors also indicate that there will be a Google version of Apple's True Tone, which allows the display to automatically adjust white balance based on the environment. The screen appears more unified and offers just one less feature that iPhone fans can claim over pixel devices.
Performance  The SoC of choice for Android flagships in 2019 in the US is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855. While the Snapdragon 855+ is another option, we have heard no rumors that Pixel 4 is being shipped with this system -on-a -Chip. We do not know if Google will beat the SoC again to make up for the smaller battery, but with Google's big push in gaming, we do not think that will be the case.
As far as the memory is concerned, it will be the RAM increase 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.
Battery  Surprisingly, the battery in Google Pixel 4 is 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 quite weak battery life.
The opposite is true for the Pixel 4 XL. The battery will increase to 3,700 mAh, an increase of 8%. Both models support wireless charging via the Qi standard. It supports fast wired charging via USB Power Delivery (performance is not yet known) and includes a USB charger.
Battery: Rechargeable Li-ion Battery
Capacity: 2,800 mAh (Google Pixel 4), 3,700 mAh (Google Pixel 4 XL)
The second (and possibly third) component is Soli Radar's estimate of someone. Based on the current state of smartphones, Google is likely to implement face recognition on two additional sensors for the first time in the Pixel series. This would be useful as Android 10 will be the first version to support this form of biometrics. We also saw how this authentication method was only achieved with a ToF sensor.
For photography, this means a much better selfie camera. Google has already improved its front cameras with a second wide-angle lens. However, if the rumor of facial recognition is true, the same sensors used to implement the technology will also enhance photography. This is because this camera creates depth maps when you try to decipher whether the face that is looking at the screen is actually you. By giving the Camera app access to this data, you'll be more focused on photos in portrait mode. AR should also work better with these sensors, eg. For example, with a better filtering application in third-party apps like Snapchat.

Leaks indicate the Google Pixel 4 All cameras are housed 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.
With the telephoto lens and the ToF sensor, the Pixel 4 can determine the depth of field of objects much better. Bokeh effect is much better than its predecessor thanks to additional data. In addition to the cameras, the quadratic modules will also contain an LED flash and a microphone.
In addition, Google will update the camera app to make it easier to use. For the first time with two cameras, Google is working hard to calibrate the app to optimally capture the available data from two cameras for even better photos. We also know that popular features like night vision are easier to use when you switch to a specific tab instead of hiding them in the "More" section of the Camera app.

The videography should be that of the Similar to its predecessor with a video recording of up to 4K at 60 fps. Thanks to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, the slow motion at 720p should improve to 480 fps. We do not know how Google will handle the dual-camera system in videos. Whether users can access videos in both videos is unclear.

Despite the return of the headphone jack in Google Pixel 3a, it is in the Google Pixel 4 and 4 XL do not return. This was expected since it has been missing for two years and most sectors are moving in this direction. Maybe there will be a Google Pixel 4a next year that will keep the port.
There will be no forward looking stereo speakers. Instead, there are two speaker grilles on either side of the USB-C port. Either Google will sacrifice the audio performance in a Pixel device again and reduce the Pixel 4 to a mono speaker, or they may become creative. One way, for example, is to implement a small speaker on the top edge similar to the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.
Another possibility is that Google will borrow LG technology and implement the Crystal Sound OLED and turn the display into a speaker. We know that Google and LG have a close relationship. Therefore, you may be sharing this technology with Google. And since we can say for sure that the Pixel 4 comes with an OLED panel, this is theoretically possible.
3.5mm Headphone Jack: No
Stereo Speakers: Yes Stereo Speakers
Maximum Speaker Volume: ## dB
Since it is a phone developed by Google, the usual codec list is supported by Android. 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.
The Google Pixel 4 will include two infrared cameras for secure face unlocking, a premiere for pixel devices. As with other implementations, these sensors are used to unlock the phone even in low light conditions. It will include a floodlight source and a point projector to image your face.
In addition, Pixel 4 is the first device using the new Soli radar chip. Similar to the LG G8 ThinQ, it supports hands-free control of your phone called a Motion Sense. Soli can decrypt gestures so you can take actions on your phone without touching them And Google plans to add more features in the future.

The new system-on-a-chip system for Google Pixel 4 supports 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 answer 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
Cellular: Nano-SIM, eSIM
Port: USB Type-C
We do not officially know the bands of the new Pixel 4, but expect at least the same LTE band support as the predecessor.
The Pixel 4 becomes the first Smartphone developed by Google will be unlocked with a secure face. With a range of sensors, Pixel 4 can detect your face no matter how you hold your phone. Unlike other devices, you do not have to swipe up to unlock the phone. If you face your phone and the soli sensor detects that you may want to unlock your phone, it will unlock. And your facial data, along with any other sensitive transactions, is stored locally on the Titan M security chip for the ultimate in protection.
