Pixel 4 live images confirm what we were afraid all along?
Pixel 4 smartphone allegedly caught on camera months ahead of its unveil.
Google is two months away from unveiling its 2019 Pixel smartphones, but until that day comes it might not be anything left to unveil.
Today, alleged live images of a Pixel 4 smartphone connected to US’s Sprint carrier are making the rounds over the Internet, and if they are not fake then Google has a problem because those bezels are not what people are expecting from Google in late 2019. Especially after that Pixel 3 XL ‘hideous notch’ fiasco from last year.
Pixel 4 might come with a prominent forehead even though the current trend is set to as-tiny-as-possible notches or none at all, and ultra-thin bezels. If these images show the real Pixel 4 smartphone, then Google has some problems, because stock Android user experience and great camera performance might not be enough in late 2019 – early 2020 in order to determine people to buy Pixel smartphones. After all there are some great alternative out there already, and with Huawei’s Mate 30 series and Apple’s upcoming iPhone 11 line-up on the way, Google might be in for a huge drop in sales in the next 6 months.
Pixel 4 is expected to feature glass design with dual stereo speakers, a great dual photo camera on the back, maybe a dual selfie camera at the front, and a fingerprint reader under its display apart from the, you guessed it, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 processor, at least 6GB of RAM and built-in storage without a micro SD card slot (Google is not a fan of such slots).
With Android 10 about to drop by the end of this month, or in early September, we expect both Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL smartphone to run this new iteration of Google’s mobile operating system, at launch.
