Smartphone rumors are coming in hot and heavy as of late. Earlier today, we reported on an Apple rumor suggesting that the company's 2020 model iPhone might wield a switchable 60Hz/120Hz display (similar to gaming phones, like the ASUS ROG Phone II), and now there is talk of Google's upcoming Pixel 4 devices utilizing a traditional bezel design at the top to accommodate an array of sensors. Source: iGeeksBlog and Ice Universe Let's start with the fresh batch of renders. Notable leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer (@OnLeaks) has once again teamed up with iGeeksBlog, this time to deliver a bunch of renders of the Pixel 4 based on the various leaks and rumors that are out there. As we can see in the image... Read more...
Based on previous Pixel launch schedules, we are roughly three months away from the official unveil of the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL, which will serve as showcases for the Android Q operating system. Leading up to the launch, Google took the unusual step of actually teasing the designof the smartphones, and there have been plenty of leaks regarding the exterior design of the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL. Today, however, we're getting some insight into what changes will be going on under the hood. Ever since the original Pixel debuted back in October 2016, 4GB of RAM has been included. Even the most recent Pixel 3/Pixel 3 XL and Pixel 3a/Pixel 3a XL adhere to the 4GB mantra. But sources... Read more...
Google shocked us all when it decided to "leak" its upcoming Pixel 4 XL flagship Android Q smartphone back in early June. Unauthorized leaks had already flooded the internet at that point, so Google just decided to get in on the action. After Google’s official photo release of the Pixel 4 XL, the leaks have continued, and we were treated to a good look at the front of the device earlier this week. Now, an artist by the name of Jonas Daehnert has released new renders based on the most recent design leak.  While these are renders, they about as close to the real thing as we could possibly get. The back of the smartphone is pretty much a known quantity at this point after... Read more...
A fresh set of Pixel 4 XL renders have hit the web, and if they are to be believed, Google will in fact ditch the display notch in favor of a traditional bezel this time around. That is a bit of a surprise, given that smartphone makers have largely favored moving on from the bezel, whether utilizing a notch, a punch-hole cutout, or even an under-display camera. None of those appear to be the case for the upcoming Pixel 4 XL, and presumably the Pixel 4 as well. Google had adopted a notched design (made popular by Apple with its iPhone X series) with its Pixel 3 XL and Pixel 3 phones, but the new set of renders once again point to a bezel at the top of the Pixel 4 XL to house the front cameras...

The ability to capture a wider color gamut could be headed to Google's upcoming Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL handsets. If so, photographers would be able to snap and display even better looking photos than what is already possible on the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, potentially taking the Pixel 4 family to a whole new level of photographic fidelity. Google hinted at this last month when it announced that wide color photos are coming to Android. In a blog post on the subject, Google noted that we are at a point where the sRGB color gamut with 8 bits per color channel is "not enough to take advantage of the display and camera technology" on today's flagship phones. "At Android we have been working to make... Read more...
It appears that that latest Pixel 4 leaks may have hit a little too close to home for Google. Just how close? Well, Google has responded by posting an official image of the Pixel 4, and it is an almost exact match for leaked images that we posted on Monday. Those images didn't show much with respect to the front of the device, but out back we could make out a square camera pod and the absence of a rear fingerprint reader. The official photo from Google only shows the Pixel 4 from the back, but it confirms the square camera pod along with the fact that the fingerprint reader is now likely incorporated within the actual display. Looking closer at the camera pod, we can actually see two... Read more...
It's been nearly a month since we last came across a credible Google Pixel 4 rumor, and now another report is throwing everything we thought we knew about the phones into disarray. OnLeaks, which usually has a pretty good track record with regards to smartphone leaks, has posted new renders of the Pixel 4, and they are unlike anything that we've seen in the past. The gadget leaker partnered with Pricebaba for the renders, which are allegedly based on "early prototyping schematics". Unlike the last renders we saw of the alleged Pixel 4, this latest iteration actually still has physical buttons for power and volume controls. We can't see much up front other than an...

Google surprised no one when it officially launched its Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL mid-range smartphones last week. Both phones are much cheaper than their Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL counterparts, and are priced at $399 and $479 respectively. However, the most anticipated smartphones from Google this year will no doubt be the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL. These new flagships will likely come packing Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 855 SoC and will be going up against the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S10 family and the new OnePlus 7 Pro.  Previous rumors have suggested that both smartphones will include a punch hole display, which is most prominently featured on the Galaxy...

We’ve heard a lot of rumors surrounding the upcoming Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL, and today a new leak is giving us some more insight into how the smartphones may actually look. Our first taste of the new design came back in mid-January, when drawings of a supposed Google Pixel 4 with a notch-free display and dual speakers showed up online. The latest “leak” comes courtesy of new drawings sourced from SlashLeaks. While the overall design of the drawings match the January leak, there are three key differences. For starters, there are two cameras on the back, which bucks the trend of the previous three generations of Pixel smartphones. It’s possible,... Read more...
Google's current Android smartphones are the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. Rumors are swirling that Google is getting ready to unveil new flagship devices in the coming months. The new phones, logically, are expected to be named Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL. And there of course has been a swirl of rumors hinting at some of the features that these smartphones will offer. Google Pixel 3 One of the features that folks who travel internationally frequently, or have a line for personal and a line for business, will appreciate is support for dual SIM cards. The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL do offer a sort of dual SIM functionality with a single physical SIM and an eSIM, but the catch is that both SIMs can't be... Read more...
We're still roughly six months away from the launch of the Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL, but that isn't stopping the leaks from making their way to the internet. This latest news surrounding the Pixel 4 family is with respect to its cellular capabilities, which should be a boon for international travelers. The current Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL technically support dual SIM functionality; however, both SIMs (one physical SIM, one eSIM) cannot be used simultaneously. That means that it is mainly used as a convenience feature, saving you from having to pull out the SIM card tray to swap cards when you need to hop onto a different network.  With the Pixel 4 family, Google will reportedly support...

Google launched its Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones last Fall, and they were highly praised for their overall performance and stellar camera. However, the Pixel 3 XL in particular caught a lot of flak for its rather large and deep display notch which houses the speaker and dual selfie cameras. In new patent filings that were uncovered this week, it looks as though onlookers won't have a notch mock on the forthcoming Pixel 4. Drawings found within the filing by 91mobiles hows a smartphone design that unmistakably fits in with the Pixel design aesthetic. On the front, we can see dual speakers -- one at top, and one at the bottom -- with no notch in sight.  There is also no... Read more...
