Both last year's Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL suffered from known leaks before their official launch, but Google's flagship 2019 ships seem to have taken things to a whole new level. A new leak – or rumor – about Pixel 4 seems to be turning upside down every day, and with three new hands-on videos online today, almost everything there is to know about the next generation of Google phones to be available now.
The three new videos basically show the bigger Pixel 4 XL in full and even go as far as showing all three different colors the handset should have – white, black and coral. None of the videos are in English, but it is unlikely that there will be big surprises when Google finally announces the Pixel 4 section next month.
The videos confirm the rumors of the 90Hz Smooth Display on the Pixel 4 phones, with the screen dynamically switching between 60Hz and 90Hz depending on the content displayed. However, smoother scrolling in 90 Hz mode can affect battery life (as seen with the OnePlus 7 Pro) and it may seem like you can turn off the "Smooth Display" feature to save battery life.
Google has left out a preinstalled recorder app on its current Pixel phones. Whether the app can record both external audio (such as voice notes) and internal audio (screen capture) is still unclear, but we're sure we'll find out soon.
The phone's camera app is also on display with an updated UI, night vision mode enhancements, and sample images taken with the Pixel 4 XL.
Another preinstalled app called Pixel Designs states that multiple themes may be available to customize the phone while Ambient EQ may have a screen color tone based on environmental conditions.
A hardware detection app confirms that Pixel 4 XL has a 6.23-inch display with a resolution of 3,040 x 1,440. On the back there are two camera lenses – one with a Sony IMX363 sensor with 12.2 MP and a shutter of 1.7, while the other is a telephoto lens with a Sony IMX481 sensor with 16 MP is 6 GB RAM and 128 GB On Board storage seems to be right.
One notable feature that is not shown in the videos are the solos' navigation gestures from the air. So there is a possibility that we can see at least ] a new thing during Google's inaugural event.
