Google has shown the first images of what will be its new Google Pixel 4 before its official launch scheduled for the month of October. We collect in this article its price, release date, specifications, and rumors of the new Google phone.
We have months of rumors and possible conceptual designs of what will be the new Google Pixel 4, and to put an end to the rumors, the company has decided to show some images and render of what will be its new flagship of the brand at the end of this year.
As can be seen in the images, the main square camera module in which the lenses of its camera sensors are located stands out. It also reveals that the fingerprint sensor on the back of previous generations disappears, which suggests that Google will integrate it already on the screen itself.
The previous filtering of information also hinted that the usual speaker grids were moved from the bottom of the terminal to the top. This Pixel 4 model is expected to hit the market next October.
Last May, Google presented the Pixel 3a and the 3rd XL coinciding with the celebration of the Google I / O event and gave us some touches of some of the new features that will be incorporated with the new Pixel 4.
In fact, the new version of the operating system focuses on innovation, security and digital well-being, making it possible to carry out more optimal management of the most used applications and in which time you spend using your device.
Pixel 4 and 4 XL, which are now known by the code name of Flame and Coral, are very popular among those who filter information and rumors. Some have represented not only a Pixel 4 and 4 XL, but also show a small Pixel 4 mini. Of course, it’s just a concept, but Phone Designer believes that it’s time for phone models to come back with reduced sizes.
Previous images from the same source reveal a clean design that is more than a small Galaxy S10e with its selfies camera built into the screen in the style of a perforated hole. This same rumor has also been shared by Front Page Tech, although none of the sources is proven.
The YouTube channel also claims that Pixel 4 will have a fingerprint sensor on the screen that, to be fair, it would not be a big surprise at this point that the vast majority of terminals are already adopting it.
Another key difference between Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL, as shown in conceptual art, is the inclusion of a double lens camera in the larger model. This would make it the first Google phone with two lenses in the back, at which point other manufacturers tend to include triple lenses and even four lenses.
A slightly older concept comes from Concept Creator and is shown in the video that we show below. Although it is purely a concept, the imagined design assumes that Google removes the edges of the screen to offer a full screen.
This extra screen also results in an increase in viewing area from 5.5 inches to something closer to 6 inches for the standard model, and from 6.3 inches to something closer to 6.6 inches in the XL version.
Of course, the Pixel 3 and 3 XL had little in common in the design, so it remains to be seen if the Pixel 4 XL will follow a general look similar to that of the Pixel 4, and it is too early to know that the filtered images belong to final models.
In previous years, the difference in design is due to the fact that Google has used different hardware partners to create the phones (for example, HTC designed the Pixel 2 and LG the Pixel 2 XL). As early as 2018, both Pixel 3 and 3 XL were designed by Google and manufactured by Foxconn.
Google places great emphasis on photography and in particular on the algorithms behind the technology. By adding a second telephoto lens with an optical zoom of x2, the Pixel 4 could be unbeatable in this regard between the smartphone models of 2019.
Being Google phones, we can safely guarantee two things that we will see in the new Pixel 4 and 4 XL. First, the version of Android 10.0 Q, for which the preview is already available and must be followed by the final version.
The second factor is that in August 2019 the new Snapdragon 855 chip from Qualcomm will come onto the market, which was unveiled last December and will come as a successor to the Snapdragon 845.
With this processor that will be expected to integrate the new Pixel 4 and 4 XL, Google phones will support 5G connections. However, adding this cutting-edge technology has certain implications, both in terms of price and design. We suspect that this may be a feature reserved only for the XL model initially.
Another data obtained from some tests carried out with Geek bench shows that the ‘Google Coral’ running Android Q and with the Snapdragon 855 chipset, could be accompanied by 6GB of RAM (compared to its predecessors that have 4 GB). With this combination, the prototype records 3296 points with a core and 9235 with several.
We would also like to see that Google extends the storage possibilities of its devices, expanding the capacities beyond 128 GB and reaching 256 or 512 GB.
According to XDA, it is also to be expected that the new Pixel 4 phones offer dual SIM compatibility, which will mean a substantial improvement over the current configuration, where technically they can have two SIM cards using e-SIM, but it is not possible to use both.

When will Pixel 4 be presented?
Predictably, the release will occur in the month of October 2019, once Apple has also unveiled its new iPhone XI or iPhone 11, and even are already on sale.
Google holds an annual event at the end of the year in which it usually announces new hardware, where it is also possible to see new Chromebook equipment.
How much will the Pixel 4 cost?
The price really depends on whether Google finally opts for the 5G route, or opts to maintain more adjusted prices and leave the 5G for the Pixel of the year 2020. In this case, it is expected that the new Pixel 4 have a price similar to the Pixel 3 and 3 XL, whose current price is around € 849, far from the € 399 of the Pixel 3a model.
