Apparently, a store in Vietnam called D Store Mobile was the source of many of the Pixel 4 XL leaks that have recently passed. While telling The Verge that the device is not a fake, the retailer admitted that it is a “test model” and not the final version of the phone that should be presented on October 15th. The store also sent several new photos of the device dressed in white.
A couple of photos revealed specs for the unit’s cameras, showing that the 12.2 MP rear camera on both models will have a wider f / 1.73 aperture than the f / 1.8 aperture on Pixel 3. This means that more light can be inserted through the lens. And the images also reveal that the front double cameras weigh 8.1MP (f / 2.0) and .3MP (f / 2.2), the latter being a possible time-of-flight depth sensor. There must be two more sensors in the rear camera module, one behind a 16 MP telephoto lens with 5x optical zoom and a spectral sensor. This collects images that the human eye normally cannot see, such as X-rays, infrared rays and ultraviolet light.
Google will double its pixel production this year and is expected to build 8 to 10 million units
According to recent leaks, Pixel 4 XL will bring a 6.23-inch AMOLED screen with a QHD + resolution of 1440 x 3040 for a 19: 9 ratio. The screen will refresh at a speed of 90Hz, which should provide translates into one smooth and lively scrolling and improved animations (including those of mobile games). The device will be powered by the Snapdragon 855 mobile platform, not 855+. The use of the overclocked version of Qualcomm’s current flagship SoC would have seemed right, considering it brings an increase in performance for the Adreno 640 GPU. Everything indicates that Pixel 4 XL will be equipped with 6 GB of memory and 64 GB / 128 GB storage. A 3700 mAh battery to keep the lights on and pre-installed Android 10.
The Pixel 4 should be supplied with a 5.7-inch AMOLED display (even with a 90Hz refresh rate) with an FHD + 1080 x 2280 and a 19: 9 ratio. This model will carry the 12.2 MP main camera and the 16 MP telephoto lens on the back and will be equipped with a 2800 mAh battery.
Both Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL will be equipped with Motion Sense, which will allow users to control certain aspects of the phone using hand gestures. These gestures will be collected by Google’s Soli radar-based chip located at the front of the Pixel and can be used to skip tracks, silence alarms, reject calls, activate the screen, show notifications and more. It seems that the user can disable the Motion Sense function if he wishes. Google is also bringing Face Unlock to the next level turning it into a secure 3D mapping technology similar to Face ID on the iPhone. Or the new Pixel models will have a fingerprint scanner on the screen and facial unlocking, or Google will bet only on it, just as Apple has done so far.
Google is trying to take the Pixel line to the next level to compete with Apple and Samsung but on a much smaller scale. In 2018, Google sent 4.7 million pixels (70% was delivered to the United States) and plans to double production this year from 8 to 10 million units. The Pixel brand has really taken off in the US, but much of that increase is due to the launch of the mid-range Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL earlier this year. This allowed consumers to get a phone with one of the best (if not the best) photosystem in the world at a much lower price. Assuming that Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL have a price of $799 and $899 respectively, Google’s job will be to present them as premium phones available at a lower price than the Galaxy Note 10 and iPhone 11 Pro models.
