Pixel 4 Launch Teased by Google; Will Happen in October
We’re grateful Google provided a teaser of its upcoming Pixel 4 to give us an idea concerning the design of the flagship. Now, it has shared when it will hold its Pixel 4 launch to showcase a bunch of products it has been working on. With the number of leaks that have come forth, we pretty much know what both devices are expected to look like, but for those that are anxiously waiting to purchase them, here’s when Google will unveil its flagship smartphone lineup.
Google Expected to Launch Pixel 4 Range on October 15
The technology giant has started sending out media invites for its Pixel 4 launch, which is slated to be held on October 15. The month is in line with a previous report we covered highlighting the potential announcement, so it looks like this little detail turned out to be true after all. The unveiling is expected to take place in New York City, the same geographical location where Apple held its iPhone 11 keynote. However, instead of three handsets, Google is expected to launch a total of two; the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL.
The smaller Pixel 4 is expected to feature a 5.6-inch AMOLED screen with a 2280 x 1080p resolution, while the larger Pixel 4 XL might feature a 6.2-inch, 2960 x 1440p AMOLED panel. Both devices could sport a high 90Hz refresh rate, which will be a huge bonus for potential buyers as it will allow them to experience a more fluid stock Android OS. According to previous rumors, both models might also be treated to 6GB RAM, as well as a 12MP + 16MP dual-camera system at the back.

However, where Google might make compromises is in the storage department. Where a few Android flagships for 2019 are using UFS 3.0 storage for increased read and write speeds, Google might stick to the previous-generation UFS 2.1 standard for its Pixel 4 launch. While the UFS 2.1 standard isn’t slow, it pales in comparison to UFS 3.0. Additionally, both models are expected to house a bevy of sensors at the top portion of the display for advanced 3D facial recognition. Users might also be able to interact with the screen without physically touching it as part of Google’s Project Soli efforts, but the feature isn’t expected to be available everywhere.
Google might also be working on a 5G variant of both models sporting more RAM than their regular counterparts so let us see if a teaser of this particular version is displayed at the Pixel 4 launch event. We can expect a host of other products to be showcased by the company, and for smart home fanatics, it might be an event worth remembering. Of course, we’ll be here every step of the way as part of our ongoing coverage and we’ll make sure you don’t miss out on the important details.
