Google included two new gestures in Android Q called Skip and Silence, although they’re not functional on With all that in mind, it sure looks like the Pixel 4 will have a radar-based chip inside that will I also said that the Pixel 4 might be Google ’ s chance to step out of the iPhone’s shadow with some

Also, remember that rumor that said Google had three distinct design teams working on the Pixel And this phone supposedly lacks a fingerprint sensor, just like the iPhones that feature Face ID. And while the teaser suggests the Pixel 4 will have a rear design similar to the rumored iPhone 11

Google is making a new series of affordable Pixel phones following the success of the Pixel 3a, and unsurprisingly, the Pixel 4a series leaked a few weeks ago. At that time, we learned that Google’s new phones will fix the worst thing about the Pixel 4. The late 2019 Google flagship (above) is quite ugly, considering the kind of designs every other company in the industry is using. The Pixel 4 doesn’t have the ugly notch of the Pixel 3 XL, but it’s no beauty, featuring a design that screams early 2017. The Pixel 4a might make several compromises when it comes to specs, but it will look a lot more modern, like the phones from Google’s main rivals. And if this new leak is to be believed, the Pixel 4a might also offer a key feature that the regular Pixel 4 phones lack.

Pixel 4 gets improved Face Unlock and other surprise updates

  Pixel 4 gets improved Face Unlock and other surprise updates Earlier this month, Google announced that instead of regular Android updates, Pixel 4 devices would get a "Pixel Feature Drop" to show off splashy new features. That update has now arrived, and on top of expected changes like robocall screening and Duo call centering, there are a few welcome surprises, as spotted by XDA Developers and Android Police. First off, Face Unlock can now account for changes to your look like a new hair style or beard. "When it's on, face unlock images are occasionally used to create improved face models," Google's update states. "This helps recognize you better over time.

New code in the Android repository suggests that the upcoming Pixel 4 a will have at least one 5G variant, with the other running on Now, it seems likely that there will definitely be multiple variants of the Pixel 4 a —and at least one will feature 5G. As XDA reported, the latest repository of the Android

Google Leaks the Pixel 4 Itself—and It Won’t Matter a Bit. Google has a lot riding on the Pixel 4 . When it’s released later this year—call it mid-fall—the flagship smartphone will represent the very best of Featured Phone. That’s not to say there’s no inherent interest in what the Pixel 4 looks like. So now you know what Google ’ s secret new smartphone looks like, complements of Google itself.

Like Apple, Google decided against launching a 5G Pixel phone last year — here are the comments of Google VP of product management Brian Rakowski from mid-October:

It will get there. But now is not the right time to buy a 5G phone. Both from a deployment perspective—the coverage is not broadly available in enough places for enough users to benefit from it—[and] from a hardware and phone perspective—it’s still power-hungry [and] immature.

There’s work to be done there. We’re tracking it closely, and we’ll bring a phone out when we feel like it’s a good time for users, but now’s not the time.

Leak shows that the cheaper new Pixel 4a looks so much better than Google’s flagship Pixel 4

  Leak shows that the cheaper new Pixel 4a looks so much better than Google’s flagship Pixel 4 The Pixel 4 may be the best Android phone of the year, at least for those users looking for Google’s unadulterated version of Android 10, but it’s hardly the perfect iPhone rival out there. The design is by far the worse thing about the Pixel 4, as the phone features an “all-screen” display that reminds us of 2017 handsets. We’re looking at large and uneven bezels at the top and bottom (image above), with the top one housing what might easily be one of the best smartphone innovations of the year, but a useless nonetheless. Strangely enough, Google will soon fix that with a cheap phone whose design will look a lot better than the Pixel 4.

This was the first year when Google actually revealed new Pixel features well before the press conference, but that didn’t put a stop to leaks . But Google did specify on stage that the novel Assistant feature is “coming to new Pixel phones later this year.” The implication was that the Pixel 4

Google ’ s upcoming new Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL are the worst-kept secret in all of tech right now because, well, they’re really not a secret at all anymore. We still have a long wait ahead of us before Google ’ s new Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL hit store shelves this fall, but the leaks will undoubtedly keep

This brings us to the latest Pixel 4a leak, courtesy of xda-developers, which suggests the cheaper Android phone might get 5G support. Google is apparently working on three distinct new devices, codenamed Sunfish, Redfin, and Bramble, which may be tied to three Pixel 4a phones. Interestingly, a report a few days ago said there won’t be a Pixel 4a XL in stores this spring.

Per xda, Sunfish is the codename of a device based on the Snapdragon 730 SoC, a mid-range chip that could power the 4G version of the Pixel 4a. Sunfish has two development branches, including Android 10 and Android 11. Redfin is more interesting, as it based on Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 765 platform that comes with built-in 5G. The device is being developed with Android 10 onboard, as expected. Bramble is also based on the same 765 chip version, but unlike Redfin, it’s not associated with an ODM company. Foxconn subsidiary FIX Mobile will manufacture Redfin, according to the report.

It’s unclear how many Pixel 4a versions Google will launch, but the Sunfish rumor makes perfect sense. A Snapdragon 730 4G Pixel 4a phone is what you’d expect from Google this year. But the 5G version? That would be a surprise. Still, the prospect of Google launching an affordable 5G Pixel phone that looks better than the Pixel 4 flagship might be exciting for buyers looking to get on 5G this year.

The Pixel 4a hasn’t even been announced yet, but the first Pixel 5 leak will be here soon .
There’s no question that the Galaxy S20 was one of the most leaked smartphones of all time, but that’s become the new normal for Samsung. The company hasn’t even tried to contain the leaks, confirming several Galaxy S20 and Z Flip details well ahead of the Unpacked 2020 event. But the Pixel 4 takes the cake when it comes to mobile leaks, and rather than fight back, Google decided to join in. Google tried to stay ahead of leaks after a disastrous Pixel 3 launch and revealed some of the Pixel 4’s signature features several months before the October “Made by Google” event.
