Leaked official Pixel 4 promo video reveals the phone’s last remaining secrets

Leaked official Pixel 4 promo video reveals the phone’s last remaining secrets Google may have tried to contain the Pixel 4 leaks in previous months by actually confirming some of the phone's main features, but the flood gates are officially open. In the past few days alone, we’ve seen quite a few Pixel 4 leaks. We saw the phone’s colors, we learned that it will feature a cool new Google Assistant trick, and now we’ve seen the first official Google promo for the handset. That’s right, the first Pixel 4 commercial is already here thanks to a huge leak, revealing the Pixel 4’s last remaining secrets just ahead of the launch of the Pixel 4’s biggest rival, the iPhone 11 series from Apple.

Google isn't just hinting at the Google Pixel 4 ahead of its expected October launch, it's actually showing what the phone will look like in a surprising new reveal. We're seeing it four months earlier than the anticipated release date and it gives us a glimpse of the back of the Android phone, complete with

The Pixel 4 hit stores only a few days ago, and just like every Pixel phone that preceded it, the phone launched with several issues that Google needs to fix — it’s a sort of Pixel tradition. Smooth Display issues and 3D Face Unlock security are two things Google confirmed it’ll fix via software updates, and the first one has just arrived, with improvements for the Pixel 4’s 90Hz display.

Smooth Display is a feature not many competing smartphones have, not even the iPhone 11 or the Galaxy Note 10. But 90Hz display was set to only work when the screen brightness was set above 75%, a detail users noticed soon after the phone was launched.

Android Authority has several Google Pixel 4 units, but none of them have received the OTA update as of He’s found some evidence to suggest that the change could be a bit more drastic than just a fix of the According to Rahman, Google might have altered the algorithm to default the Pixel 4 ’s display

No matter how exciting the Pixel 4 might be, Google just confirmed again to the world that it’s not successful at selling expensive smartphones as its Google CEO Sundar Pichai said that the cheaper Pixel 3a phone released in May saw great sales during the period, implying the affordable handset

Google on Monday released the latest security update for Pixel phones that provides patches for known security issues, but also brings over the Smooth Display improvements to Pixel 4 users — the update also contains unspecified camera quality improvements for the same phone.

Anecdotal evidence from users who’ve installed the update indicates that the fixes work, and Smooth Display keeps working even when the brightness drops to 0%. A Redditor has noticed a display issue at low brightness, a green tint that appears while the screen switches between 60Hz and 90Hz once you touch the screen — the following video shows it in action:

Still, what matters here is that Google issues a fast fix for this particular problem, so you can enjoy Smooth Display without having to worry about brightness, or how to fix the issue yourself. Will the new Smooth Display settings affect battery life? There’s no definitive answer to that yet, as the software update just dropped, but mileage might vary.

One of the Pixel 4’s most impressive features is coming soon to older models .
In a roundabout way, Google has confirmed that one of the features which immediately stood out when the Pixel 4 was first unveiled about a month ago — the super fast and useful Recorder app that transcribes audio — is coming soon to older Pixel models via a software update.This free app is, as we said, fast and mostly accurate. And reporters, in particular, soon started raving about it on Twitter, given that transcribing interview recordings is one of the more thankless and time-consuming aspects of the job.
