So the pixel 4 isn’t exactly a secret now. It was one of the most hyped phones of the year until Google itself went for their official leaks about the final renders of the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL in their twitter. Just like the last year where Google rolled out the early leaks about Pixel 3 and Pixel 3a, this year Google did the same thing with Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL.

Here we will be talking about both the smartphone based on the leaks and rumors. 

1) What will Pixel 4 look like?

We have kept on seeing the big old design from Google but Pixel 4 is the game-changer in terms of how the device looks. Leaks confirm that we’ll see something different this time.

The glass back on Pixel 4 isn’t a new thing but ditching out its large notch design, Google took a major step and plans to introduce large-ish bezels at the top. Moreover, for the major design change, Google is about to introduce its box patterned camera cut out at its back.

2) How would the display look like?

Perhaps the biggest highlight from the rumored specs so far is the 90Hz display. This is something we’ve seen on very few smartphones, with one of the most recent being the OnePlus 7 Pro. This allows the display to move at a faster refresh rate, resulting in everything looking considerably smoother. Google is said to call this “Smooth Display”, and it could help the 4 and 4 XL stand out from the crowd.

The Pixel 4 handsets will feature larger screens than the Pixel 3; the regular model will sport a 19:9 1080×2280 display, while the Pixel 4 XL will feature a 19:9 1440×3040 panel. Last year’s models feature 18:9 and 18.5:9 screens with 1080×2160 and 1440×2960 resolutions, respectively.

3) Where is the fingerprint sensor?

Just like other big boys in the game like Apple, Google is set to get rid of the biometric fingerprint sensor and plans to introduce the most secure 3D face unlock technology on an android phone to date. Sacrificing a big space in the top bezel, Google is trying to become a game-changer by taking a big risk.

4) Will it have a strong specs list? 

Talking about the specs list we can these the specs listed below ;

On September 16, Google announced that it will be holding an event in New York City on October 15 where it invites people to “come to see a few new things Made by Google.”

While not called out by name in the press invite, it’s more than likely that this is where Google will officially unveil the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL.

Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL is conformed to rock the latest flagship-level processor that is Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 with the android latest version Android Q out of the box. The base variant is predicted to rock a 6 GB Ram, which is enough for all the tasks that we try to do. Moreover, it will offer the best viewing angle with the best stereo speakers on a smartphone.

5) What is this Motion Sense features?

Soli radar chip, latest technology which Google is going to introduce. Itโ€™s already been known that this chip will enable the Pixel 4 to switch songs with a swiping air gesture and also the ability to silence alarms and phone calls. In this video, we can see the settings for all of these Motion Sense features. Thereโ€™s also a third feature mentioned here which Google alluded to which uses the Soli sensor to detect when you reach for the phone to display your lock screen and notifications.

The Soli sensor is going to be a big standout hardware feature of the new Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL this year, but unfortunately, it won’t be available in all areas. Some of the countries where we would see the motion sensor features are ;

  • United States
  • Canada
  • Singapore
  • Australia
  • Taiwan
  • “Most” European countries

6) What about the cameras?

Just like its ancestors, Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL will surely have the greatest camera hardware paired with the most superior software processing on a phone. We would get to see a 12.2MP primary camera at the back with a wider f/1.73 aperture compared to the f/1.8 aperture on the Pixel 3 series phones. Unfortunately, however, the resolution of the secondary rear-facing camera hasn’t been revealed.

On the front, the Pixel 4 XL will have an 8.1MP primary sensor with an f/2.0 aperture and a 0.3MP secondary sensor with an f/2.2 aperture. It is possible that the secondary sensor housed within the large notch at the top of the phone’s display could be a Time of Flight sensor. 

Recently the Google Camera 7.0 APK was shared with one of XDA Developers‘ tipsters by Vietnamese YouTube channel ReLab. According to the app version, version 7.0 of the Google Camera app includes quite a few UI changes. Let’s list some of the features;

  • Camera coaching
  • Save selfie as previewed
  • HDR+ control
  • Motion Mode
  • Better Night Sight
  • Live HDR
  • Audio zoom

We also got the screenshot of the app from the XDA developers.

7) How good will be the pricing?

We can’t confirm the pricing of this phone but only can do the guesswork. However, with the specs loaded with one of the best cameras on the market, new motion sense feature, Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 and phone from one of the biggest & trusted brands we can imagine the high pricing.

Here from the recent leaks, the price of Pixel 4 is expected to be around the same pricing of Pixel 3 which is around $799 and moreover, the price for Pixel 4 XL may be similar to Pixel 3 XL’s $899.With the introduction to the new motion sense features, we can expect some minor cost addition to the phone. But still, in comparison to its competitors, it is a good value for money.
