The rumored Google Pixel 4 5G is in test production, according to a report from Nikkei Asian Review Wednesday. Google might unveil the phone next week, according to the report, though it may hold off until next year.

Google is holding its Pixel event next Tuesday in New York City. Along with the debut of the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL, the search engine company is expected to showoff other new products from its smart speaker Google Home line and its smart homeNest line.

Keep tabs on the other rumors about the Pixel 4 and 4 XL.But last year's Pixel 3 and 3XL didn't sell as well, despite their exceptional cameras and critical acclaim. This could be because the phones are exclusive to Verizon (though they work on other US carriers), plus the fact that people in general aren't buying phones as much as they used to. The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL phones are also expensive, unlike the Pixel 3A phones.

Google began teasing its next Pixel phone back in June, but in recent weeks, there has been a slew of leaks about the phone. The Pixel 4 and Pixel 4XL will reportedly have a Snapdragon 855 processor, 6GB of RAM and be available with either 64GB or 128GB of storage. Both will also have face unlock and new gesture controls. The difference between the two models will reportedly be the screen size and battery -- with the Pixel 4 expected to have a 5.7-inch "full HD Plus" OLED display with a 2,800-mAh battery while Pixel 4 XL is expected to have a 6.3-inch "Quad HD Plus" OLED display and a 3,700-mAh battery.
