Nearly everything about the upcoming Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL has leaked ahead of next week's official unveil (well, everything except for official pricing). So, we shouldn’t be too surprised to learn that Google may be reserving a “one more thing” announcement for its October 15th hardware event. The newest report coming from Nikkei suggests that alongside the standard LTE versions of the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL, Google will also at least preview a 5G version of the smartphone. According to the publication, it’s not likely that the device will actually be available at launch like its LTE counterparts, and would arrive at a later date (the Pixel 4... Read more...
Google is building a number of cool features into the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL smartphones, and details have been leaking like crazy over the past month. Another new feature has now leaked that outlines an interesting new way that users of the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL will be able to activate the Google Assistant. The new way is "raise to talk." The way the feature reportedly works is after the user lifts their phone, they can then issue a command to invoke Assistant. The question has to come immediately after the phone is raised or the Google Assistant will ignore the speech it hears. This feature will presumably be in addition to the squeeze to activate that leverages the Active Edge feature... Read more...
You could remove every other shingle on the roof of your house during a torrential downpour and there still would not be as many leaks as there are regarding the unreleased Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL. We have seen the phone from every angle, including official press renders and learned about new features headed to the flagship phones. On top of it all, a full list of specifications has now been leaked. This is not the first leak of its kind—there have already been plenty of leaks and rumors pointing to the potential specs of each phone, and even benchmarks have found their way to the web ahead of Google's upcoming launch. Now, however, the folks at 9To5Google managed to spy the official specs... Read more...
One of the big features of the upcoming Google Pixel 4 smartphone will be its Motion Sense gesture control. It's easy to get the idea behind what Google will be offering with the Motion Sense gestures, but it's better to see the gesture in action. A video has leaked that shows the gestures in action in different situations. The motion of the gesture is the same swiping a hand over the screen action in each instance but does do different things depending on what the phone is doing. For instance, waving a hand over the screen for the phone when the alarm is going off silences the alarm. Dismissing with a gesture is much better than having to fumble in the dark for your phone and swipe the screen... Read more...
Google is getting some of the apps that are already running on Pixel devices ready for the upcoming Pixel 4, which will debut at an event to be held on October 15. Another app update has landed adding new features for Pixel 4 users, with at least one Pixel user receiving an update to the Google Recorder app. The Google Recorder app allows users to record audio from the microphone of the smartphone, and that is pretty much all it does. The update that recently landed allows the app to transcribe audio recordings automatically and enables the user to search audio recordings. The images seen here come from Google Play and show what is changing in the app. The app screenshot with the dark background... Read more...
Whether by design or through an actually inability to keep things under wraps, the upcoming Pixel 4 series has been extensively leaked over the past several weeks and months. The latest leak comes from a familiar source—Evan Blass (@evleaks on Twitter) posted what look to be official press renders of the Pixel 4, as shown above. Coming from Blass, we have a high level of confidence that these images are the real deal. And assuming they are, the renders confirm Google is eschewing modern trends like a notch or punch-hole design in favor of traditional bezels on the top, bottom, and sides. The top bezel is the thickest of the bunch on the Pixel 4. It houses the front-facing camera for taking... Read more...
We already know the upcoming Pixel 4 series will support motion gestures—Google confirmed the "Motion Sense" feature in a short video teaser, along with facial recognition support to unlock the handsets. Now we have a pretty good idea of what specific apps will work with Motion Sense from the get go. One of them is Spotify. Born out of Google's Project Soli, the Motion Sense feature uses radar technology to detect hand gestures. This allows users to perform tasks like skipping tracks or playing the previous one simply by waving their hand in front the phone. Motion gestures could be especially, um, handy (pardon the pun) when working on a car or eating chicken wings lathered in hot sauce,... Read more...
At this point, nearly everything about the upcoming Google Pixel 4 family has been revealed. We know pretty much all of the hardware specs including the SoC that will be used, screen dimensions, battery capacities and even have official confirmation of Project Soli gesture recognition. Now we're learning when Google's actual hardware event for the devices will take place. According to an invite that Google sent to us this afternoon, the big day for the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL is October 15th. Google doesn't give away any new details on the smartphones, only stating via its invite, "Come see a few new things Made by Google". The event will be held in New York City, and for those that won't... Read more...
Another leak of the Google Pixel 4 smartphone has happened, and this one comes out of Vietnam. Somehow a store called D Store Mobile has laid hands on a Pixel 4 XL and shared images of the device from just about every angle, and importantly shared images of the hardware device info screens on board the smartphone. As for how an unknown small store in Vietnam came to have one of the devices in hand, there is no word. We do know that Google makes Pixel devices in Vietnam, so presumably, a source in the supply chain gave the device away. The leaker has stated that the Pixel 4 XL that is being shown off isn't a final unit and is said to be a test model. Test model or not, it gives another good look... Read more...
There has been yet another leak of Google's Pixel 4 family, this latest one focused on what appears to be an actual Pixel 4 XL handset. Assuming the leak is legitimate, we get a clear view of the upcoming phone, along with a meaty rundown of the specs, settings, and various features, including the triple-camera arrangement and face unlock function. Google has not yet launched its Pixel 4 family, though that is expected to happen within the several weeks. In the meantime, a supposed Pixel 4 XL has been spotted in Vietnam. It's the white version with black trim. One of the things that immediately stands out to me is the square-shaped camera cutout. Like the iPhone 11 Pro, the Pixel 4 XL will wield... Read more...
Apple has seen sales of the iPhone decline in recent years, and many point the finger at the lack of new and appealing features (along with increasing prices for the flagships). Each successive generation of new iPhone models has had little to coax the iPhone masses to upgrade, and some see the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro devices the same way. One of the differentiators for the new iPhone models unveiled this week is the camera system on the iPhone 11 Pro. Reports indicate that Google is targeting the new iPhone models with the Pixel 4, and rumors suggest that it will beat the iPhone 11 models in key features. One of the key features where the Pixel 4 devices are expected to beat Apple will be... Read more...
There are plenty of leaks related to Google's unreleased Pixel 4 XL and Pixel 4 handsets, and even Google has gotten in on the action—the company teased an image of the devices and posted a short clip briefly demonstrating the face unlock feature and Motion Sense gesture controls. As it relates to the latter, there's a video (not by Google) that shows some of the settings and specific gesture controls users will have at their disposal. The gesture controls appear to be born out of Google's Project Soli platform, which it has been developing for the past few years. If so, the Pixel 4 series will have advanced object recognition capabilities. It's not clear to what extent accurate 3D imaging... Read more...
It looks as though Google will be offering its upcoming Pixel 4 family in at least three color options, including black, white, and a newly leaked "coral" variant (we think it resembles an orange Creamsicle). For reference, the Pixel 3 XL and Pixel 3 are offered in Just Black, Clearly White, and Not Pink color options, but not orange (or coral or Creamsicle). Twitter user Ben Geskin (@BenGeskin) spotted the somewhat grainy photo on Weibo. While there is also the possibility of the leaked photo being a fake, the design is consistent with images Google has already teased earlier this summer, when it essentially confirmed black variants of the Pixel 4 XL and Pixel 4, both with a square-shaped camera...

Google's Pixel 4 family of smartphones is shaping up to have quite a compelling assortment of high-tech hardware to keep users happy including a snappy Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC, dual cameras on the rear, and gesture tracking with Project Soli. However, equally as important as a competent hardware platform is the software that layers on top. The Pixel 4 will be running Google's newly released Android 10 operating system, and a new report suggests that the phones will also gain an exclusive extension of the Google Assistant. We've all had the experience where we've been put on hold by a business that we've called, and we just sit there waiting, and waiting... and waiting for a human... Read more...
