Like every year, before the official announcement of the next flagship from Google, we almost certainly know how they look, thanks to the many leaks. This time, as you might have to see if the situation repeats itself, and we already have a pretty good idea of how it will look Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL.
In addition, apparently, the manufacturer of accessories Skinomi agree with the last rumors regarding the design of the new camera. However, in spite of all the information presented here should be taken with some skepticism.
How will Google Pixel 4
Despite the fact that the announcement of the new flagships will be only a few months, Skinomi has developed a protective film on their screens. The accessory will likely not be released until mid-November, but already now it is possible to pre-order, which tells us that the company is confident in the accuracy of its design.
Protective film, which you can see in the image below, has a large cutout in the upper right corner in the form of a pill, which, apparently, made for the front camera. This coincides with previously published rumors that Google plans to move from the current “Bang” in a hole in the display akin to what we have already seen in Galaxy S10, Nova 4 and Huawei Honor View 20. As seen in the rendering, Pixel 4 XL should be two front chambers, one of which presumably will include wide angle sensor.
Like most flagships 2019, displays both Pixel 4 will have the smallest frame, but more curiously, on rendering from Skinomi lower frame confirms the previous rumors about the almost non-existent “chin”. Upon closer examination it becomes clear that “chin” a bit thicker top frame, but the difference is barely noticeable. Also note the inconspicuous stereo speakers in the upper and lower housing parts, which have been a signature design feature of the devices, starting with the second generation. Openings for speakers are very small, but for them the film also has a special cut.
What about the lack in Pixel 4 of all physical buttons
As mentioned in the beginning, Skinomi seem to agree with most of the rumors about the Pixel 4. However, granted the render goes against one of the biggest and perhaps the most controversial leaks.
A couple of weeks ago, one authoritative source has suggested that Google will get rid of all physical buttons Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL in favor of compressible edges, which help to create a more seamless design. However, the render we see the power button and elongated volume controls. Other strange items include a three-button navigation panel rather than a new alternative from Google, based on gestures, and Flamingo apps on the home screen.
Manufacturers of accessories, as a rule, create a design on the basis of official information, so maybe Google has changed its decision to abandon physical keys. But the render can be called a disc, which is used as long as the manufacturer will not be submitted with the final design. If so, this also means that the “chin” on the flagship Google may be a little thicker than the picture.
Characteristics and early sales of the Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL
Following in the footsteps of Samsung Galaxy S10 and OnePlus 7 Pro, Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL will come with a processor Snapdragon from Qualcomm 855. A year earlier, perhaps new items could get only 4 GB of RAM, but according to recent information, Google will finally increase to a minimum of 6 GB. In addition, we should expect 128 GB of memory without possibility of its expansion.
Both “pixel”, of course, will be running standard Android 10 Q and support 4G LTE network — the use of 5G modem at the moment is unlikely. Also expect protection from dust and moisture standard IP68 and increased battery capacity with fast charging.
Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL should appear in early October at the annual event of Google, dedicated hardware. Pre-order the device, probably, can be issued immediately after the presentation, and sales will begin a week later.
