These dudes already have the Pixel 4

These dudes already have the Pixel 4

The next hands-on video is from YouTube channel Rabbit TV. On the front, it seems like Google has returned to the old ways, putting a large forehead on top of the screen and a bit of bezel on all other sides.

We take a look at the features and specifications that make the Google Pixel 4 worth waiting for. The video, posted to YouTube by ReLab on Thursday, purports to show gaming tests on a demo version of the upcoming phone. We did hear of an earlier leak suggesting a potential October 4 date, but that just didn't seem convincing enough.

Based on what we've seen of them so far, are you interested in the Pixel 4 or Pixel 4 XL? The device is shown in 3 colours: White, Black and Orange and around it is a black border, regardless of the colour.

An "official" promotional video was also seemingly leaked on a Spanish tech site ProAndroid, which highlighted the smartphone's new gesture controls, improved Assistant support and Night Sight camera.

However, the 8x zoom feature is dicey, as it is unclear whether the camera would feature optical zoom or a combination of both optical and digital.

Of course, we're sure that no-one is keeping score on this point in particular, but given the very public grievances with Huawei we can imagine that Google's engineers are keen to have a superior astro mode in the Pixel 4.

The Pixel 4 XL you see here is only a prototype that appeared in Hanoi, Vietnam. However, there will also be the option of switching between 60Hz and 90Hz display dynamically.

One of the more recent leaks is in the form of an article on Genk.vn which shows off some of the UI within the software on the Pixel 4. One of the cameras at the back uses a SonyIMX363 sensor with 12.2MP and f/1.7 aperture while the second one uses a Sony IMX481 16MP sensor. This allows users to hover their hand over the Pixel 4 to view the lock screen, which indicates the time and notifications.

"As for hardware, we get yet another confirmation of 6GB of RAM, up to 128GB of storage, and a 6.23" 3040x1440 panel on the Pixel 4 XL.
