Google is terrible at keeping secrets. I’ve personally come to that conclusion. Because not only was last year’s Pixel 3 one of the most leaked phones of all time, the Pixel 4 might beat it thanks to an absolute flurry of leaks that have surfaced over the past week.
4K videos of the Pixel 4 and 4 XL (with camera samples!)
We’re seeing way more of the Pixel 4 than what Google wants. That’s a guarantee, and it’s especially true when you consider that someone already has the phone and has produced a 4K video that’s been uploaded to YouTube and is still available to watch.
I’m not joking. Look.
That video details so much of the Pixel 4 that it may even be unnecessary for Google to host a launch event At all. We just know way too much.
We even have camera samples from the Pixel 4 thanks to a separate YouTube video that, yet again, is still available to watch.
New Google Assistant UI, Pixel Themes, and Smooth Display Toggle
One of the more recent leaks is in the form of an article on Genk.vn which shows off some of the UI within the software on the Pixel 4. The phone will come with a redesigned Assistant interface, some tweaks to the main Android 10 interface, and an option to turn on or off the “Smooth Display” feature of the device. (If you don’t already know, “Smooth Display” will let you turn on the 90 Hz refresh rate on the device’s display which makes everything more pleasant to look at.)
We also catch a glimpse at the new Face Unlock system’s setup procedure and the Pixel Themes customization options. There’s even another video that gives you an idea of how these functions work.
All of this goes without saying that we pretty much know every spec that the Pixel 4 and 4 XL will have. They’ll ship with 5.7-inch and 6.3-inch Full HD/Quad HD displays (respectively), Snapdragon 855 processors, 6GB of RAM, up to 128GB of storage, Android 10, a main 12.3MP camera alongside a secondary 16MP telephoto shooter, dual 8MP selfie cameras, front-firing stereo speakers, 2,800mAh and 3,700mAh batteries, IP68 certification, USB-C, fast charging, and wireless charging.
Not done yet
At this rate, there’s a solid chance the Pixel 4 isn’t done leaking just yet. We still have another few weeks before these things become official, so it’s possible that we’ll learn even more about the phone before Google can officially unveil them. Stay tuned, folks!
