After months of secrets shots and rumours of the Pixel 4 series spilling on to the internet, Google has finally set a launch date for its upcoming flagship devices. That date, by the way, is set for 15 October and will be held in the city of New York.
The Alphabet-owned company has already begun sending out its “Made by Google” invites to several media outlet. The invite itself doesn’t reveal much, save for the obvious launch date and venue for the event. However, the “Come see a few new things Made by Google” line at the bottom suggests that the search engine plans on showing off other devices besides the Google Pixel 4 series.
Beyond that, the invite is unsurprisingly vague about the details about the phone. However, considering the frequency of leaks for the devices, it’s not an exaggeration to say that the Pixel 4 series is probably Google’s worst kept secret of this year.
Also, according to a post by The Verge, it’s more or less confirmed that the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 SoC, at least 6GB of RAM, and have up to 128GB internal storage. Battery capacity for the phones is expected to be set at 2800mAh for the Pixel 4 and 3700mAh for the Pixel 4 XL.
Display sizes for the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL are expected to be set at 5.8-inches and 6.3-inches, respectively. Further, both units will feature AMOLED panels and are rumoured to have a higher 90Hz refresh rate.
Camera-wise, both Pixel 4 models are expected to share main dual-camera module and selfie camera. Specifically, both sensors at the back are expected to be 12MP Sony IMX363 f/1.7 sensors, while the selfie camera at the front is said to be a 16MP Sony IMX481 sensor.
The Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL are also slated to feature a new gesture sensing feature known Motion Sense, plus what some are expecting to be a really fast Face Unlock technology.
