The Pixel 4 and the Pixel 4 XL have been tipped to sport a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC, a 90Hz display and square-shaped dual rear camera module.
Google Pixel 4 series is set to launch at the Google’s big hardware event, Made by Google, on Tuesday in New York. Rumour mills have churned out the features and specifications of the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL phones to an extent that nothing is left to the imagination. The Pixel 4 phones are expected to have identical screen size and hardware except for a few differences. The Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL are expected to sport a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC, a 90Hz display and square-shaped dual rear camera module. But, the headline feature is going to be ‘Motion Sense’, which will let users control various functionalities without physical interaction.
Based on previous render leaks, the device will offer a range of colour options like ‘Maybe Pink’, ‘Sky Blue’, ‘Really Yellow’, ‘Slightly Green’, ‘Clearly White’, ‘Just Black’, and ‘Oh So Orange’. Popular tipster Evan Blass had leaked renders of the Google Pixel 4 XL in Clearly White and Oh So Orange. Notably, Google is offering more colour options on the Pixel 4 than the Pixel 3, which came only in three colour options.
Google is also expected to announce a new smart speaker dubbed Nest Mini, which is the Nest-branded successor to the Google Home Mini, new Nest Wifi, the Pixelbook Go, and the new version of Pixel Buds at the Made by Google event.
