Pixel 4 phones announced with 90Hz display & exceptional camera
There is no doubt that smartphones are getting even smarter. Google’s new Pixel 4 series phones have just been announced and they feature all sort of technologies including Radar type of tech.
Google’s Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL are now officially revealed, and they pack a lot of interesting specs, but also some letdowns.
Both phones come with a complete 90Hz display (no notch, no cutouts in the screen: 5.7″, 6.3″ screen on the XL model), stereo speakers and fast 3D Face unlock tech. The downside? There is a chin and a prominent forehead.
Inside Google’s Pixel 4 smartphones is Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855, 6GB of RAM and 64 or 128 GB internal storage (no micro SD). Google is also offering 3 months 100GB cloud storage for free.
Both Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL are IP68 certified (water and dust resistant), come with a dual camera unlike its predecessors that had only one 12MP sensor. The new phones sport a 12MP main Dual Pixel sensor (f/1.7 aperture) + 16MP telephoto sensor, with optical image stabilization on both sensors.
The main camera also takes advantage of a Pixel Neural Core chip to better enhance the image quality. The phones are even capable of astro-photography (capturing the night sky), in addition to its great NightSight feature we all come to love in previous Pixel devices.
The battery in the XL model has 3,700 mAh capacity, with the smaller model sporting only a 2,800 mAh, which Google says will last you through the day.
Design wise the Panda look is back, and we like it even more now. Glass panels at the front and at the back sandwiched together by a Black metal frame. The colorful Google Pixel series signature Power button is back.
