Google is expected to launch its flagship Pixel 4 smartphones in mid-October this year. A month after being officially teased, the Pixel 4 and Pixel XL have now leaked in the form of specifications where this time Google has packed something for the very first time.
As per inside sources, the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL are touted to come with 6GB of RAM, an upgrade from 4GB RAM that the Pixel, Pixel 2 and Pixel 3 until now have come with. BGR reports that this RAM module will be based on the LPDDR4x. While the two Pixel 4 devices are expected to come with 6GB RAM, it’s unclear whether the phone will also be available in higher RAM models.
Besides that, the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL are now also expected to feature 128 GB of native storage. However, there is no word on whether the devices will be available with higher storage variants either.
Internal aside, Google is also slated to design the Pixel 4 with a tall aspect ratio of 19:9 and a Full HD+ resolution of 1080 x 2280 pixels. While the Pixel 4 XL is also expected to come with the same 19:9 aspect ratio, the device will have a Quad HD+ OLED screen carrying a resolution of 1440 x 3040 pixels.
Actual screen sizes are still missing from this particular leak but it was earlier reported to be between 6.2-inch and 6.4-inch for the Pixel 4 XL and between 5.6-inch to 5.8-inch for the Pixel 4. This begs the question about what is Google doing to the selfie camera? Will it still keep issuing the wide and deep notch or go for hole punches or popup cameras? We hope to find out soon.
The Pixel 4 series is reported to be powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor and it’s unlikely that Google experiments its flagship phones with the newly announced Snapdragon 855+. The flagship phones will be the first to run on a stable build of the upcoming Google Android Q mobile OS which will be announced a little earlier.
