The Pixel 4 smartphones, expected to arrive in two weeks, have leaked piece by piece. Now 9to5Google obtained the full specs sheet, revealing all you need to know about the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL.
One thing that immediately grabs the attention is the battery capacity – the Pixel 4 will have 2,800 mAh, while the 4 XL will come with a 3,300 mAh power cell. That’s a bit of a setback, since the Pixel 3 had a 2,915 mAh unit, while the Pixel 3a rounded up to 3,000 mAh. The 4 XL variant is also nothing spectacular, matching the battery in the Pixel 3a XL.
Google appears to be rebranding its Visual Core to Pixel Neural Core – we are yet to see how image processing will get better with the new Snapdragon 855 chipset. Yes, that is right – Google will launch the devices with the SD855 and not the latest Plus variant.
As usual the phones will lack earbuds in the retail box – wired or wireless. However, the company is expected to launch Pixel Buds 2 at the event, if you are willing to spend more of you money on those. It appears that there also won’t be a 3.5 mm audio to USB-C cable, pushing you to use your own USB-C headphones or go for a Bluetooth solution.
The Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL will be announced on October 15 and there are only a few left unknowns about the phones – actual prices and whether Google will expand their market presence.
