Google Pixel 4 XL hands on

Google is gearing up to launch its new Pixel 4 family today at a special event in New York. The search giant is likely to take the wraps off the brand new Google Pixel 4 and the Pixel 4 XL smartphones along with a few more devices. These could be a new Google PixelBook, Google Pixel Buds, a new Nest Hub and more. Today, you’ll be able to watch Made by Google event live on YouTube. The live stream will begin at 10:00AM EST, which is 7:30PM in India.

Ahead of the official unveiling, a lot has already been leaked about the phone. The Pixel 4 family is likely to come with a new square-shaped dual rear camera module, since the design was teased by Google itself. Here’s everything that the software giant is expected to unveil at the Google Pixel 4 event.

Google Pixel 4, Pixel 4 XL

As per the recently leaked screenshots, Google Pixel 4 could offer a 5.7-inch full HD+ OLED panel with 90Hz refresh rate and Ambient EQ. The premium Pixel 4 XL, on the other hand, is said to come with a taller 6.3-inch QHD+ OLED panel with 90Hz refresh rate and Ambient EQ. Both the phones will be powered by Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 855 octa-core SoC, paired with the Pixel Neural Core. The Pixel 4 series will reportedly be offered in 6GB of RAM, and 64GB or 128GB storage option.

As for the photography sessions, Google is likely to add dual cameras at the back of the phones. You will get a 12-megapixel primary sensor (dual-pixels) and a 16-megapixel telephoto lens. Details about the front cameras are missing. Both the Pixel phones will support stereo speakers, Titan M Security Module, Motion Sense (Project Soli) and Face Unlock feature too. It is unknown whether the device will sport an in-display fingerprint scanner or not.

The Google Pixel 4 is likely to feature a 2,800mAh battery, whereas the Pixel 4 XL might come with a 3,700mAh battery. Both will include fast charging and wireless charging features. As is the case with every other Google phone, you will get three years of OS and security updates. One interesting thing to note here is the in-box contents. You get the phone, USB-C to USB-C cable, charging adapter, SIM ejection tool, and quick start guide. There is no mention of the Buds wired earphones. This means that you may not get the wired headphones in the box.

New Google Pixelbook

Google is rumored to unveil a new laptop at the event, which could be called ‘Pixelbook Go.‘ A few reports suggest it is likely to boast a 13-inch display with 16:9 aspect ratio and options for FHD and 4K resolution. It could feature a simple clamshell design as opposed to what we have seen on the Pixelbook and the Pixel Slate. It could also come with a magnesium alloy body, which will help with the weight.

Under the hood of the Google laptop could be an Intel chipset with plenty of customization options for buyers. One might be able to choose between m3, i5 or i7 processors, up to 16GB of RAM, and up to 256GB of storage. There could also be a Titan C chip on the inside. On the sides will be two USB Type-C ports, and a 3.5mm audio jack. Other reported features include two mics on the front, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, and “much more powerful speakers than the Pixelbook.”

New Google Pixel Buds, Nest Mini smart speaker

Google is expected to unveil a new smart speaker. A few reports suggest that the company will launch a Google Nest Mini. This will reportedly be a new version of the Google Home Mini, and will come with a few enhancements. Lastly, Google is also likely to unveil its new pair of Pixel Buds at today’s Google Pixel 4 event. Rumors are rife that the brand will launch a new set of its Pixel Buds earphones, which will replace the first generation that arrived in 2017. Currently, not much is known about this new Pixel accessory, but it is likely to rival Apple’s AirPods.
