TechInAfrica – Released initially back in 2016, Google’s take on smartphones—named the Pixel, has become a reliable tent-pole in the smartphone release calendar. With smooth operational purposes, smooth cameras, and (most importantly) smooth and sleek design, the Pixel series has gained quite a reputation and adoration from the general tech community; ranging from personal users, reviewers, and experts alike.
Despite this, Google still needs to maintain its footing in the smartphone market—constantly meeting up to new demands and expectations. This year, as many have anticipated, Pixel 4 is finally coming out; here’s what we know about the up-and-coming hot thing.
As seen from the leaked photo (courtesy of a Sprint employee), Google Pixel 4 boasts a dual-lens camera on the front—as well as a triple-lens camera on the back. Albeit we haven’t any idea (yet) on what the exact specifications of the cameras are, we can pretty much draw a red string from the rumors suggesting it will have an outstanding 16MP telephoto lens and improved color capture.
Rumors also state that Pixel 4 will most probably have an improved zoom of up to 20x magnification capacity.
In screen news, it’s heavily implied that Google Pixel 4 could have a 5.6-5.8-inch screen, while the Pixel 4 XL could have a 6.2-6.4-inch one. Along with a 90Hz refresh rate, this ensures smoother scrolling whilst being compared to normal handsets. Potentially displaying a higher rate of frames per second, it would be appropriate for this idea to be regarded as one of the phone’s most fervent features.
Boasting a top-notch Snapdragon 855 chipset, an extensive six gigabytes of RAM will also be manifested in the upcoming smartphone. Unsurprisingly, it also lists itself in one of the phones that’ll be using Android Q for its base operating system. The battery offers a 2,800mAh capacity for the standard model; and a 3,700mAh one for the Pixel 4 XL.
Because all previous Pixel phones use 4GBs of RAM, this would mean a modest improvement towards the smartphone scene of Google itself.
