Google Pixel 4 is one of the most anticipated phones of 2019, and as with all upcoming smartphones, we have heard numerous leaks and rumors about this.
The Pixel 4 is by no means a secret – Google showed us the design itself to avoid months of speculation – but the rumor mill is unstoppable, and there's a lot we do not know about the upcoming device.
Or about the upcoming device s since we also expect a Google Pixel 4 XL.
We do not expect the release date of Google Pixel 4 every day Now – it is very likely that it will be in October – the end of the year is the "launching season for big phones", with the iPhone 11, the Huawei Mate 30 and more, and it's hard not to look forward to the new technology we've got to see.
Latest Leak: A leak indicates that the Pixel 4 XL could have a smaller, sharper screen than the 3 XL. In addition, a leaked promo video hints at an improved night mode. Google Assistant can help you when you're on hold, and we looked at the phone again in white and black.
Since the launch in 201
However, that does not mean the competition is down and Google in 2019 really has to stay on its feet if the pixel line is to meet expectations at its next iteration. Could it be high on our list of the best Android phones or the best camera phones, as Pixel 3 has done before? Only time will tell.
Below is the most up-to-date list of design and pricing rumors and a full list of the features we expect from Google's future pocket rocket.

Price and Date of Release of Google Pixel 4
Google has for years decided to expand its Pixel range in the second half of the year after the usual scooter publish The number of smartphone releases from the first half of the year has fallen.
More specifically, we expect Google Pixel 4 to be released in early October on the basis of its current form, with Google likely taking advantage of the opportunity to launch a new product at the same time as some other hardware options long-time Pixel Watch.

Following the announcement, it is likely that the release date of Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL will be in early November, if something is going on in the past few years.
Google Pixel 4 Price, the cost of pixel hands We climb for years.
With the additional features now in place and the general emphasis on top-notch fit and finish, the Pixel 4 – or at least the XL model – could be the first model in the range to reach $ 1,000 / 1,000 GBP / 1,500 AU USD exceeds.
There are probably several different storage capacities available at different prices. Further information will be available soon. Look at this area.
Google Pixel 4 leaks and rumors
We've heard some leaks and rumors about the upcoming Pixel 4 smartphone. So we summarized them below. You can find out what we know.
Google Pixel 4 Design
We know what Google Pixel 4 will look like (at least on the back), as Google has even posted a tweet with a picture of the upcoming handset.
It is confirmed that the Google Pixel 4 design on the back has a large, square camera pen – which we've seen in several rumors before Google released its tweet two cameras – that would be a first for the Pixel series Mobile phones that were previously attached to only a single rear snapper – along with a camera flash below (with a sensor to the right) and another sensor on top of the square.
Now that there seems to be some interest, it starts! Wait until you see what it can do. # Pixel4 pic.twitter.com/RnpTNZXEI1[19459019lightboxesJune122019
Another important point we can take from the official Google Pixel 4 image is the lack of a fingerprint scanner. So far, each pixel handset has a fingerprint scanner on the back, which points to the Google Pixel 4 with integrated scanner.
Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL, however, may not have fingerprint scanners at all, if Google wants them. All-in on face, retina, or speech recognition, as rumored.

Although the front design is not entirely clear, it is also rumored that the Pixel 4-section may have a full bezel at the top instead of a notch or a hole.
You can take a close look at the likely aperture (along with the square camera block) on the photos below.
These images of an alleged Google Pixel 4 were floating around in the telegram. No idea of the true source or if they are real. pic.twitter.com/ooPKkDudZA[19459023lightboxesAugust272019
This full bezel is an assertion made even to someone else who seems to have taken a pixel 4-snapshot in the wild (though the front side is not visible in the photo). It's also an idea that Google has itself confirmed, so this looks likely.
And yet apparently more people have photographed the phone, with another source capturing the front with this upper mount, but apparently almost no lower mount.
Better still, what looks like Google Pixel 4 XL was also captured on video, as you can see below.
The phone is shown from all angles, with the top bezel highlighted, the lack of a 3.5mm headphone jack, and the back of the glass are all monochrome and not two-tone as we are seen on previous Pixel phones.
We've also seen leaked renderings of the Pixel 4 XL that gave us this a close look at the possible aperture.

Unfortunately, if this rendering is true, there is no return of the 3.5mm audio jack that we have surprisingly seen in Google Pixel 3a.
Regardless of the phone's design, it may be available in a number of new colors because it has leaked a mint green color in addition to the expected black and white models. We also saw pictures showing a new coral color.

Google Pixel 4 Camera
Leaked Pixel XL images show floor-mounted speakers , a dual-lens camera on the front and a triple-lens camera on the back. We still do not know exactly what the camera will have, but rumors suggest it will include a 16 megapixel telephoto lens and improved color registration. Elsewhere we've heard that the Pixel 4 could have both a 12 megapixel main lens as well as a 16 megapixel telephoto lens as well as a "DSLR-like accessory".
There is also the possibility that Pixel 4 has improved zoom and may offer up to 20x zoom. We base this theory on a zoomed picture posted by Claude Zellweger (Google's Design Director) on Instagram, in which he says "20x zoom #Pixel" in response to a comment.
In another comment, however, he clarifies that the shot was taken with a mix of zooming and cropping on a Google Pixel 3a. So it does not sound like it's a new feature, but it could give a hint. We are not convinced, but you never know.
Other rumors speak of an 8x zoom, though it's not clear if it's all going to be visual or not. There is also talk of a new motion mode that lets you take the best action shots without fuzziness, and an improved night mode that is further suggested in a leaked marketing video.
And despite the above images another leak, this time in the form of case renders, suggests that the pixel 4 could have a notch, a housing two cameras. The illustrations also show a large aperture under the screen with a speaker on it, and the same square camera on the back as above.

There is also the possibility that the Pixel 4 will arrive in the hole design of Honor View 20 and then be brought into mainstream by the Samsung Galaxy S10 -Line. At least this is a picture for a screen protector that seems to have been designed for the phone shows, along with stereo speakers and virtually no bezel.
Similarly, we also saw a leaked image below, allegedly with Google Pixel 4 XL and a double lens camera cut into the top right corner of the screen – though we now know that the rear design he suggested is wrong, it pours cold Water on the rest of the claims here.
In fact, it has since been rumored that three Pixel 4 designs were in progress before Google decided to do so with the square camera block, so the above images may have been taken into consideration ,
The design, which seems to have prevailed, consists of a full upper front panel of a selfie camera – at least in basic pixel size 4. Google announced two new features, the hand gesture controls Motion Sense and Face Unlock (see below). Both require a full set of sensors located in the large upper bezel, though the second selfie camera can not seem to keep up.
Google Pixel 4 screen
In the on-screen news, the latest leak suggests that the Pixel 4 XL has a 1440 x 3040 6.23 inches and 540 pixels per inch screen and 19: 9 aspect ratio. That would make it a little smaller and sharper than the Pixel 3 XL.
So far we've heard that the Pixel 4 could have a 5.6-5.8-inch screen, while the Pixel 4 XL might have a 6.2-6.4-inch screen (compared to 5.5-inch pixels 3 and 6.3-inch pixels 3 XL).
The same source states that the Pixel 4 will be approximately 147.0 x 68.9 x 8.2 mm (or 9.3 mm thick, including the rear camera mount) The Google Pixel 4 XL has a size of 160, 4 x 75.2 x 8.2 mm (at the camera elevation 9.3 mm).
Another source claims that the Pixel 4 will have a 5.7-inch screen and the Pixel 4 XL will have a 6.3-inch one. This is consistent with the above leak, but this source adds that the phones have a 90 Hz refresh rate, allowing smoother scrolling than most handsets. This is apparently marketed as a "Smooth Display".
Google Pixel 4 specifications
We may have seen a Geekbench benchmark for Google Pixel 4. It includes a Snapdragon 855 top chipset and 6GB of RAM – From 4GB in the Pixel 3 range. Not surprisingly, the phones are running Android Q.
The benchmark includes a single-core score of 3,296 and a multi-core score of 9,235, representing solid but not exceptional results for a top-end phone. Of course, this would be a pre-release hardware and software release, so the results may be better at launch.
We have learned from several sources that the Pixel 4 can be started with 6 GB of RAM. So far, all pixel phones had 4 GB of RAM, which means an overdue increase in computing power.
Another source pointed to the same specifications, along with 64 GB or 128 GB memory and 2,800 mAh battery for the standard model and 3,700 mAh for the Pixel 4 XL. Elsewhere, we also saw the mentioned Snapdragon 855.
In more unusual news, we heard that Google Pixel 4 might have more capacitive rather than mechanical buttons than clickable – but the Google-released image seems to be against it, because raised buttons on the side of the handset indicate mechanical.
This change may be made to allow Active Edge (the ability to launch Google) by pressing the frame (as with the previous pixels) along the entire length of the phone frame to enhance the phone's design. Although image leakage in particular still has physical buttons, take them with a pinch of salt.

Recently added code According to Android's open source foundation, Google Pixel 4 may have improved dual SIM support so you can use both a regular SIM card and an eSIM card at the same time.
More leaks will continue during the year Here you will find information on the latest developments.
Features of Google Pixel 4
In an apparent attempt to prevent leaks, Google unveiled two key features of Pixel 4: a kind of hand gesture control called Motion Sense and Face Unlock with the appropriate name.
Motion Sense uses the Google Pixel 4's front-facing camera – especially the Soli motion-sensing radar concept – the entire new sensor suite to track hand movements for theoretically simple purposes – touch controls. Supposedly, these are used to perform simple actions such as skipping songs and swapping apps.

Motion Sense, however, does not seem to work everywhere Works in the US, Canada, Singapore, Australia, Taiwan and most European countries (probably also in the UK), but not in Japan.
In the meantime, Face Unlock seems to do what it promises – though it's achieved through multiple sensors, including a point projector, IR camera, and headlights. For privacy reasons, Google assured in its blog post that all processing would be done on the Pixel 4 and no images or recognition data would be shared through its services.
Another feature we expect at Google Pixel 4 is tight integration with Google Stadia, Google's new cloud gaming service. Google has already announced that the service from Pixel 3 works on all its smartphones. The Pixel 4 is definitely included, and we definitely saw some features that make it a great mobile gaming platform.
We've also heard rumors that Google Assistant may be able to take over Pixel 4 if you're put on hold and then notified when a human responds.
What We Want To See
Not much is yet known about Google Pixel 4, but we know what we'd like to see – our suggestions can be found below.
. 1 Multiple Reversing Cameras
Since the Pixel Line's inception in 2016, Google has not only defined what is possible with a single camera sensor, but for smartphone cameras as a whole.
With tricks like super res zoom, night shot and more, Pixel 3 surpasses those of Huawei, Apple and Samsung in 2018, especially without breaking a sweat. However, the competition is not resting on its laurels, especially with the Huawei P30 Pro .
It would not come as a surprise if a left-sided, possibly pioneering software feature were added to the Pixel 4, but to truly exceed expectations, a second, third or even fourth sensor on the back would give it an edge.
Ultra wide angle, tele zoom, black and white, there are many options. So we want Google to experiment with the options available – the results could be spectacular.
. 2 No Score
For anyone watching the evolution of smartphone design, 2018 was a year of excellence. Regardless of the size of the display, every manufacturer with imitation attempts followed the trend of the Apple iPhone X the most.
Google's Pixel 3 XL is a particularly notorious example of exceptional design because it's bigger than most.
We would like the company to completely bypass the notch this year without resorting to the large bezels of the standard Pixel 3, either with a pinhole camera in the display or with a sliding mechanism.
. 3 More RAM
Although the Google Pixel 3 series generally provides users with a solid software experience, it was not without controversy, especially in terms of RAM management.
Many users said the particular camera app consumed so much available memory that all other open apps would be forcibly closed.
This may have been forgivable on a budget phone with just a bit of RAM, but for a flagship it certainly is not. For the Pixel 4, we'd like at least 6GB of RAM along with an appropriately powerful chipset – hopefully eliminating any allegations of poor performance.
. 4 Stereo Speaker
The modest stereo speaker, which normally points to the front, has a strange existence. Although they are popular with fans of hands-on handsets, they are usually the first victims of space-saving measures.
In 2019, the feature was removed from many popular handsets and sometimes replaced with a speaker under the display.
But for the quality of sound offered and the enhanced listening experience, we want stereo speakers to stay on Pixel 4 like Pixel 3 – and stand out from the competition.
. 5 Longer battery life
The packing of huge batteries was done in 2019 for most flagships . Almost all sports backpacks whose size would have been unknown just a few years ago
Google claims improved efficiency every year – the size of the batteries in the devices has not improved significantly.
And even though there are signs that the new Snapdragon 855 is significantly more efficient than its predecessor, the Snapdragon 845, we want Google to make the whole pig.
We want to see a pixel that can measure its lifetime in days, not hours. We hope that Google can implement this.
. 6 Stage Size Ambitions
In early 2019, Google "surprised" the world by announcing its "Stadia" games streaming platform, which uses compression technology to make a service accessible to all.
It has been promised that the service will reach a variety of devices, mobile devices, consoles or otherwise. The question of mobile telephony is somewhat more complex, because even if the extension of the service to all Android devices is likely to be a future goal, it is for the time being that the availability will be limited to pixel devices.
We want Google to use this concept as much as possible. But what would that mean? In practice, we want an improved focus on network performance (to combat potential latency issues) and, above all, a dedicated peripheral device.
Ideally, this matches what Xiaomi has pioneered with his Black Hai gaming handset – Touch controls are not suitable for complex control systems, and a dedicated peripheral device would help fill that gap.
. 7 More color options
In most settings, from the boardroom to the bedroom, black or white options are a good choice for phones. They add a touch of class and do not stand out in a crowd.
The pixel line is certainly tailored to this subset of the population, but has taken some wild steps in the past, especially the original "Really Blue." Model (which was indeed very blue).
Based on this original, we want Pixel 4 to be in more than a slightly unconventional color, following the example of the iPhone XR and the Samsung Galaxy S10e. Whether green, blue, yellow or whatever, the new option has to stand out from the similarly colorful opposition.
. 8 A more robust construction
The Pixel 3 is undoubtedly a better built phone than its predecessor. With tight lines and a glass back, it was really a challenge for the various models of the iPhone, which came on the market in 2018.
No major distortion of the truth, however, could lead to the accusation that it is damage-proof – on the contrary, reality. The stone-like surface of the glass on the back shows the tendency to scratch easily, far more than expected.
This meant that those who sold out hundreds for their shiny new Google devices realized that it did not take long before they regretted not opening a case right away. A bit different (even a different kind of glass or Treatment) we want Google to incorporate a bit of utilitarianism into its design and create something that anyone can use anytime, any day.
