Google Pixel 4 Series Rumour Roundup: 90Hz Display, 12MP Camera, SD855 And More
Google’s upcoming instalment in the Pixel series has been much-awaited worldwide. August and the arriving two months see the launches of certain big names in the industry such as Samsung, Apple and Google themselves. The Pixel 4 series had a lot of rumours and leaks surrounding them already. Now, it has been reported that both search giant’s flagships will feature a 90Hz display panel.
Faster Refresh Rate Displays
A higher refresh rate panel on a smartphone isn’t something new. Previously, gaming smartphones such as Razer Phone 2, Asus ROG Phone 2, Nubia Red Magic 3 and more employ higher displays. However, the OnePlus 7 Pro certainly helped in making it a hot new feature for the mainstream audiences. Reportedly, Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL will sport a 90Hz AMOLED display. The base variant features a 5.7-inch FHD+ display while the larger variant will have a 6.3-inch QHD+ display. Google has aptly dubbed the new faster display panels as “Smooth Display.”
Google, for the first time, is finally employing more than one photographic sensor on its rear camera module. According to the report, the primary sensor is still a 12MP shooter with PDAF like previous iterations. The Pixel 4 series will also include a 16MP telephoto lens. Interestingly, Google is also claimed to be working on a DSLR-like attachment for the Pixel series this year. It will probably be an accessory that can be purchased separately post the smartphone launch.
Google’s Pixel 4 will be powered by a 2,800mAh battery, while the Pixel 4 XL houses a larger 3,700mAh battery. It is a slight downgrade from the Pixel 3 (2,915mAh) for the smaller variant. However, the larger version benefits from a noticeably improved over the Pixel 3 XL (3,430mAh). The Pixel 4 series will feature Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 and finally cross the 4GB of RAM to 6GB. The devices will be available in a 64GB or 128GB of internal storage models.
Furthermore, the Pixel 4 series will have stereo speakers, the Titan M security module and the latest Android with 3 years of software support. Additionally, we can also expect that Google will showcase its device alongside new Google Assistant features that will be exclusive to the devices as well. Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL will arrive in October at the company’s 4th annual Made by Google event. The event will also be held alongside the hardware developments from Mountain View company.
