Both last year's Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL suffered from known leaks prior to their official launch, but Google's 2019 flagships seem to have taken things to a whole new level. A new leak – or rumor – about Pixel 4 seems to be turning upside down every day, and with three new hands-on videos online today, almost everything there is to know about the next generation of Google phones to be available now.
The three new videos basically show the larger Pixel 4 XL in full, even in all three different colors that the handset should have – white, black and coral. None of the videos are in English, but it is unlikely that there will be big surprises when Google finally announces the Pixel 4 series next month.
The videos confirm the rumors of the 90 Hz Smooth display on the Pixel 4 phones, and the screen can dynamically switch between 60 Hz and 90 Hz refresh rates depending on the content displayed. However, smoother scrolling in 90 Hz mode may affect battery life, as seen with the OnePlus 7 Pro, and it may seem like you can disable the Smooth Display feature to save battery life.
Another innovation that Google has previously dispensed with in his previous Pixel phones is a pre-installed recorder app. Whether the app can record both external audio (such as voice notes) and internal audio (screen capture) is still unclear. However, we are sure that we will find out soon enough.
The phone's camera app will also be displayed showing an updated user interface, night vision mode improvements, and sample images taken with the Pixel 4 XL.
Another preinstalled app called "Pixel Designs" indicates that there are several designs available for customizing your phone. The so-called "ambient EQ" may have a screen hue that depends on the environmental conditions.
A hardware detection app confirms that the Pixel 4 XL has a 6.23-inch display with a resolution of 3.040 x 1.440. On the back are two camera lenses – one with a Sony IMX363 12.2MP sensor with a 1: 1.7 aperture and the other with a Sony IMX481 16MP sensor.
In terms of other specifications, the earlier rumors of 6GB of RAM and 128GB of on-board memory seem to be correct.
One notable feature that is not shown in the videos are the solos' navigation gestures from the air. So there is a chance that we can at least see them one new thing during the Google launch event.
