We’re now just under three months till the Pixel 4 and 4 XL launch but many specs on the device are still unknown. Aside from Google’s surprise photo posted to Twitter showing off the rear of the Pixel 4, what else is in store? According to 9to5google, a ‘reliable source’ has provided new, never seen before specs that will be included in the Pixel lineup. Since the so-called reliable source is not identified, it’s crucial to take these leaks/theories with a grain of salt.
Screen quality and size is high on many of our wish lists, so let’s start with that. It’s reported that the Pixel 4 and 4 XL will both have OLED displays but vary in quality. The 5.7 inch device is said to include a Full HD+ display, while the 6.3-inch model will have a Quad HD+ display. The top of the device is rumored to have a large bezel, mostly to accommodate a new face unlock feature. Most importantly, both displays are said to be considered a ‘Smooth Display‘. Basically, they will be 90 Hz displays, ideal for smooth interactions and gaming.
We’ve known for some time that the upcoming devices will include two rear cameras but how will they perform? Apparently, one will be a normal 12 megapixel camera and the other a 16 megapixel telephoto lens. It’s believed this new lens will have some sort of wide-angle ability and possibly support attachment lenses.
With all of these new features, owners are going to want a long-lasting battery. It’s been rumored that Google will incorporate a 2,800mAh and 3,700mAh battery which isn’t much to celebrate over. In terms of performance, it’s reported that Google will increase the RAM from 4GB to 6 GB. If anything, the increase in RAM will be a game changer for multitaskers running multiple apps or heavy programs.
Lastly, 9to5Google states October 5 will be the day to mark your calendars for an official launch. Until then, take a look at Unbox Therapy’s video below, highlighting what to expect in the Pixel 4 and 4 XL.
