Google Pixel 4 and 4 XL To Launch Next Week


Google, the owner of the most popular mobile operating system is set to enter the mobile phone landscape again. With previous efforts getting great reviews but not so great numbers when it comes to buys it is time for them to up the ante.

Google’s last releases received great reviews across the board but struggled due to pricing issues. Another factor that affected the last generation of Pixel phones is that they were exclusive to Verizon.

Customers don’t want to buy a phone that is not only out of their budget, but also exclusive to only one provider. Those factors would affect any phone model even if they are solid and runs smoother than others. You as a consumer won’t buy something expensive when you know a newer model will come out next year, right?

With Google’s newest flagship phones launching next week, people are curious about what these phones would offer. Given that the market is dominated by two juggernauts in Apple and Samsung. Will Google offer something new to sway the public this time around?

Let’s find out and discuss what are the features of the Google Pixel 4 and 4 XL.

Of course, you as a consumer would be very interested in what new features can a flagship phone offers. Before we get into the features, let’s first talk about another major contributor, the price. Well, Google has not yet announced anything and will most likely reveal it next week.

Pocket-lint’s article regarding the two new phones speculates that Pixel 4 will most likely be at $799. This was based on the price of recent Pixel flagships. On the other hand, the 4 XL might go for $899 which was also based on the past generation’s price. However, the same article also touched on a rumor that these phones will cost a whole lot lower than their predecessors.

Moving on from the estimated prices, let us now focus on their features.

Let’s start with the display, shall we?

Google’s Pixel 4 smartphone will boast a screen display of 5.7 inches. The Pixel 4 XL, on the other hand, will feature a display of 6.3 inches. Pocket-lint stated that these phones will have screens that run at 90HZ refresh rates. This will ensure that the screens on these phones will be fast and responsive.

After talking about the display, let us now talk about what features are under the hood. First and foremost, these phones will run using the Qualcomm SD855 processor and will feature 6 gigabytes of RAM. These phones will be up there in terms of processing power.

For the phones’ camera, the Pixel 4 and 4 XL will feature cameras at both the back and front of the phones. The front camera will have 12 megapixels while the one at the back will be at 16 megapixels.


Final Thoughts


Well, it looks like Google will look to re-establish itself with its two newest flagship phones. With only one week to go before its launch, it would be interesting to see if Google can bounce back from the last generation’s poor sales.
