Google Pixel 4 live stream: how to watch the Made by Google '19 launch event

  Google Pixel 4 live stream: how to watch the Made by Google '19 launch event Google is about to launch the Google Pixel 4, and possibly more products – here's how to watch it live.It's set to be one of the biggest smartphone launches of the year, alongside the iPhone 11 and Samsung Galaxy S10 events. The highlight of Made by Google 19 is set to be the Google Pixel 4 smartphone, but we've heard rumors of a 5G Pixel 4, the long-awaited Google Pixel Watch, and perhaps there'll be even more.

It could be shown at an event in October or held until next year. Google appears to be working on a 5 G version of the Pixel 4 , and it’ s possible the phone will be shown as early as next week , according to Nikkei.

The Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL are slated to be launched at an event in New York on October 15, 2019. The devices have been at the receiving end While the Pixel 4 will be available for consumers to purchase shortly after unveiling, sales of the 5 G variant might be positioned closer to the launch of

Google appears to be working on a 5G version of the Pixel 4, and it’s possible the phone will be shown as early as next week, according to Nikkei. The standard versions of the Pixel 4, which will be announced at an event next Tuesday, will only support LTE. But Nikkei says that Google has begun “test production” on a model of the phone that includes 5G, too.

It’s not clear when the 5G model will be previewed or released, though. Nikkei says it could be shown next week, but its sources said the announcement could also be held until spring to appear alongside a new budget phone, a successor to the Pixel 3A.

It could also be announced months from now

If the phone is revealed on Tuesday, it’s likely that it would just be a teaser for a launch later on. It sounds as though development isn’t finished, and devices aren’t ready to go into production yet. Such an early tease seems somewhat unlikely: Pixel 3 sales were slow at launch last year, and Google would risk slowing sales of this year’s model by previewing a higher-end version that no one can buy yet.

Leaked Google videos show the Pixel 4's 'Motion Sense' gestures in action

  Leaked Google videos show the Pixel 4's 'Motion Sense' gestures in action After all the countless Pixel 4 leaks, you may have tuned out at this point, but for those that are still paying attention, 9to5Google has shared what it says are official marketing videos Google will release to promote the phone. The twosets of videos show the Pixel 4's Soli-powered "Motion Sense" gestures in action, as well as the new, faster Assistant the phone will include before any other Android device. In the first set of videos, we see how the Pixel 4's touchless gestures will work. To silence calls and alarms, you simply wave your hand sideways above the phone. Skipping songs is done the same way.

The Pixel 4 is set to be announced next week at Google ’ s hardware launch event in New York City. Ahead of the launch event , a number of Meanwhile, the phone is expected to run a Snapdragon 855 chispet with either a 5 .7-inch or 6.3-inch display and a 2,800 mAh or 3,700 mAh battery, respectively.

A Geekbench listing for a device called the Google Pixel 4 XL 5 G that emerged in September has The Pixel 4 and 4 XL will be revealed Oct. 15 at the company' s next Made by Google event in New 18, it went on sale. Therefore, we anticipate another week or so gap between launch and the ship date.

Either way, the goal seems to be getting a 5G phone on the market within the next year, ahead of a 5G iPhone that’s expected next September. 5G networks are still in their infancy, and for consumers, there’s still not a lot of reason to get one of these phones. But being early to 5G could still help Google get some attention for its phone line.

Nikkei reports that Google might also unveil a new smartwatch and a laptop at Tuesday’s event. A new version of the Pixelbook has already been rumored, but a smartwatch isn’t something we’ve heard about. Google hasn’t had much luck with smartwatches in the past (and Android smartwatches aren’t in a particularly great place right now), but given how many are on the market, it doesn’t seem like it’d be all that hard for Google to put one together if it really wanted to.

Google's Pixel 4 may invoke Assistant when you raise the phone .
It's not that difficult to invoke Google Assistant on most Pixel phones, whether it's saying "hey Google," squeezing the sides or making an on-screen gesture. With the Pixel 4, however, it might become downright trivial. A 9to5Googlereport claims the upcoming device will let you start Assistant commands just by raising your device and starting to speak. You'd just have to do what comes instinctively to ask about the weather or turn on some lights.
