The Google Pixel 4 will get a release date in October, but if you want to know what the handset will look like, read on…
Google hasn’t been coy about dropping details about its incoming Google Pixel 4 release. The company leaked images of the phone on Twitter, confirming, among other things, a brand new camera array on the back. But that was just the backside. What about the front?
Well, that’s where YouTube comes in. In his latest video, YouTuber, Waqar Khan, has pieced together all the latest rumors and leaks surround the Google Pixel 4 to create what is easily the most complete, realistic render video of the Pixel 4 we’ve seen to date.
As you can see in the video, the Google Pixel 4 cuts a rather dapper figure. It still has some bezels at the top and bottom, but these have been dramatically reduced compared to the outgoing Pixel 3. The display on the Google Pixel 4 appears to feature soft, rounded corners that meld into the wider design language of the chassis.
As is often the case with most modern smartphones, from the front, there’s not much to see – just a big, expansive OLED display. On the back, however, things get more interesting with Google’s brand new camera unit for the Pixel 4. So what’s the deal with Google’s new Pixel 4 camera?
Multiple reports have now confirmed that both Pixel 4 models – the Pixel 4 and the Pixel 4 XL – will feature a 12-megapixel wide-angle and 16-megapixel telephoto rear camera sensors. This is the first instance where Google has used more than one camera on the rear of its Pixel phones. Add in Google’s incredibly advanced machine learning AI, and we’re expecting the Pixel 4’s camera to surpass everything else on market.
Powering the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL will be Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 CPU alongside 6GB of LPDDR4x RAM and 128GB of storage. The display will be an OLED panel, set at different resolutions for the larger and smaller Pixel 4 models; 2280 x 1080 resolution for the Pixel 4 and 3040 x 1440-pixel for the Pixel 4 XL.
Google Camera Will Be Pixel 4’s Best New Feature
CPUs, RAM, storage – they’re all essentially the same these days. The real battle in the phone space right now is in the camera department. Apple, Samsung, Huawei, and Google have been investing millions in camera R&D in a bid to take the #1 coveted spot as the best camera phone for 2019 and beyond.
Google has excellent pedigree in this department. Its Pixel range of phones, pretty much since the first-ever model, has always had superior cameras to the competition. Image capture has always been the Google Pixel’s strong suit, and with the Pixel 4, it looks as if Google has upped the ante once again.
For me, the prospect of the Google Pixel 4’s improved camera performance and capabilities, is perhaps the most exciting thing about the new Google Pixel 4 range of phones. That and Android Q, of course…
