Google has made it official! The company will be unveiling the new family of Google Pixel devices on October 15.
Invites were sent and it’s as simple as they come. It will be held in New York City on October 15. Along with this, a short but sweet “Come see a few new things Made by Google” closes the invite.
The Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL have an extensive number of leaks, aside from the teaser released by the company last July.
The Pixel 4 XL is expected to have a 6.3-inch AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate. While the Pixel 4 will have a 5.8-inch screen with similar specs.
The two phones are reported to rely on face recognition, similar to that of the iPhones.
Pixel 4 XL is said to have a 3700mAh battery, while the base Pixel 4 will get 2800mAh. The two phones will have 6GB RAM and up to 128GB of storage.
The main rear cameras for the devices are expected to be 12MP Sony IMX363 sensors with f/1.7 aperture. Accompanying it is a 16MP Sony IMX481 sensor telephoto camera.
With the leaks and rumors out of the way, let’s get to the teaser from Google which features a gesture sensing feature called Motion Sense, which in a nutshell allows users to change songs or silence calls and alarms by doing certain gestures.
A feature called “Reach to check phone” is also reported, in addition to Motion Sense. The feature activates the screen when you hover your hand over it. By doing so, you get to check notifications, time, and other information.
While there’s enough information in the leaks and rumors to basically launch the phone, Google can still send a curveball and surprise us. There’s not much to do but wait.
