Google has been teasing the Pixel 4 for quite a few months now but recently they updated the Google blog with some new updates regarding a revamped gesture system. But before we get ahead of ourselves, Google has released a significant amount of information including screenshots of the backside of the phone as well. The most interesting thing about the rumoured design is the updated camera module which will feature more than one lens. The design leak also did away with the two-tone colour scheme of the previous Pixels.
We know already that the Pixel 4 will have the updated Snapdragon 855, it will feature Android Q when it comes out. But Google’s push for Radar, the new gesture system is still up in the air in terms of its capability. Google showcased a trailer where a woman can be seen gesturing her hand in the air to change the music. They also released an image showcasing all the modules in the front camera panel which details all the technology going into the “No Hands” design.
Google has launched the prior Pixel models all during the month of October and it’s likely that they will do the same for the Pixel 4 as well.
And with Android Q being lined up for a release in Q3 2019 which typically ends in September, the Pixel 4 may even land sooner. But with design updates and software innovations in the pipeline, the Pixel 4 may be a phone in the 1000 dollar ball park. But Google’s decision to keep people in the loop in terms of design choices in an attempt to stop inadvertent leaks looks to be paying off, as the Pixel 4 may just be gearing up to be Google’s best smartphone release yet.
It is however worth taking this information with a grain of salt. Nothing is concrete until the phone is finally released and until then, everything in terms of the price, specs and release date is speculative.
