Technology Google is reportedly testing a 5G version of the Pixel 4
Google's next laptop is reportedly the 4K Pixelbook Go
The device has a 13.3-inch display and will be unveiled at the Oct. 15 "Made by Google" event, according to 9to5Google.The higher-end 4K option will have the same "Molecular Display" branding as Google's Pixel Slate tablet, according to the site, which cited anonymous sources. You'll apparently be able to choose between models with Intel Core m3, i5 or i7 processors, 8GB or 16GB of RAM, and 64GB, 128GB or 256GB of storage.
Seemingly everything regardinghas already leaked, but there might still be room on the pile for more. Nikkei claim Google has started "test production" on a 5G version of the Pixel 4 in China (though it might be produced in Vietnam). It would still use the Snapdragon 855 expected in the LTE models, according to the tipsters. There's no mention of other functional changes, so don't count on getting more than faster wireless if this proves accurate.
Whether or not you'll hear about a 5G variant at Google'sis another matter. Test production suggests it's still early, and Nikkei's contacts said Google might wait to unveil a 5G version in spring alongside a new budget Pixel phone (the Pixel 4a?). Not that there's much of a rush to do so. Carriers' 5G networks are still , and existing cellular chipsets frequently demand compromises in battery life.
Google Pixel 4 might call for help automatically if you're in a car crash
Pixel phones' Emergency Information app is reportedly being renamed "Personal Safety."The updated app, renamed "Personal Safety," uses your location and sensor readings from the accelerometer and microphone to detect if you've been in a crash. It then plays an alert at maximum volume and vibrates. If you don't mute the app, it automatically calls emergency services and gives them your location.
Google hasn't commented on the claimed leak. However, a spring 5G update might make sense beyond waiting for the technology to mature. By spring 2020, all of Google Fi's carrier partners (Sprint, T-Mobile and US Cellular) will have 5G running in some capacity. A 5G Pixel 4 would serve as a showcase for those upgrades, and might keep people subscribed to Fi where they'd otherwise be tempted to leave for other providers.
