The Google Pixel 4 is set to launch soon – October 15th in the U.S., to be precise – but we pretty much know everything about it already. The Google Pixel 3 was launched as a Vodafone exclusive last year, and there’s no reason to assume otherwise this year. The Google Pixel 4 was already confirmed back in June, though we didn’t know a whole lot about it. Thanks to a million different leaks across the board, though, we know practically everything about it ahead of its release.
The Google Pixel 4 will (obviously) have flagship specs
As expected, the Google Pixel 4 will have flagship specs. A Qualcomm Snapdragon 855, the latest and greatest chipset from Qualcomm, is a given. Rumours abound have also suggested that the phone will come with 6GB of RAM, alleviating concerns of memory issues like on last year’s model. The Google Pixel 4 XL is said to have a 6.23-inch QHD+ display, and we don’t really know anything about the smaller model yet. 91Mobiles expects to see a 3,700 mAh battery in the larger Pixel 4, with 128GB of RAM. A higher refresh rate display is also confirmed thanks to our friends over at XDA-Developers, who confirmed that it will have a 90Hz display instead of a 60Hz.
Hilariously, YouTubers already have the device
A month ahead of its release, a number of Vietnamese YouTubers have managed to get their hands on the device already. Some Vietnamese stores have also sold the device to regular consumers as well, so the leaks have been out of control. You might remember that last year, a shipment of Google Pixel 3s were stolen many months ahead of its release. The Google Pixel 4 shown in the YouTube video below appears to be a developer model, though, as a number of camera features don’t work on it yet.
The Google Pixel 4’s camera will probably be one of the best on the market
Another trope of the Google Pixel line of smartphones, it’s expected that they will have one of the best cameras on a smartphone. This is the first Google smartphone to come with more than one camera, and it actually packs 3. One is a primary sensor, one is a telephoto and the third is an ultra-wide. Obviously, this does remain to be seen for definite, but it wouldn’t be all too surprising.
An Irish Vodafone exclusive?
The Google Pixel 3 and the mid-range Google Pixel 3a launched through Vodafone in Ireland, the exclusive carrier of Google’s smartphones. You can also pick up Pixel devices from Google’s own site in Ireland, but if you want it on bill pay, Vodafone is typically your only option. We expect the same to be the case with the Google Pixel 4, as it was with the 3a which only just launched. We’ll be sure to update this part of the article if it’s confirmed.
