All specifications and functions of Google Pixel 4 that you need to know about «Android :: Gadgethacks



It is always important if the company that makes Android releases a new phone. The Pixel series from Google has made a name for itself in three short years after its camera qualities, but now it's time to compete with the big players. That said, Google would like to know how their Pixel 4 and 4 XL relate to the iPhones and Galaxy & # 39; s of the world.

If you are not familiar with the Pixel series from Google, consider it a midpoint between Samsung & # 39; s Galaxy and Apple & # 39; s iPhone. It has some of the simplicity and integration of an iPhone, but with the most modifications and software performance of a Galaxy. The other things that matter are great access to Google and the Google Assistant, plus the best photo camera on any smartphone.

Pixel 4 highlights

Important dates

Pixel 4 was announced in New York City on October 15, 2019. Preorders start the day of the event and are released within a few weeks of the announcement date.

  • Release Date: October 2019
  • Preorder Date: October 15, 2019 [19659009] Announced: October 15, 2019

Storage capacity

Something we are not Agen was the return of the 64 and 128 GB storage options. Despite the fact that phones now have 512 GB and 1 TB options, and many phones that start with at least 256 GB, Google seems to be blocking the trend.

Although this low storage option hurts less because of unlimited storage on Google Photos, with its push in gaming, this storage can be easily eaten. Although Stadia does not need storage (because it is all stored in the cloud), mobile gaming apps do. This storage quantity was not sufficient in 2018, let alone now. And just like its predecessor, it does not support expandable storage.

  • Available storage: 64 GB and 128 GB
  • Expandable storage: no

Price for everything

Both the Google Pixel 4 and the 4 XL increase the price by $ 100. With the sale of the Pixel 3 for $ 799 this would mean that the smaller ones of two phones would start at $ 899. Based on the starting price of $ 899 from Google Pixel 3, we expect the Pixel 4 XL to start at $ 999, making it the first Pixel smartphone with a variant of more than $ 1,000 .

  • Price: $ 899 (Google Pixel 4), $ 999 (Google Pixel 4 XL)

Body

The body uses the same material as most flagship smartphones in 2019, glass on the front and back for wireless charging and an aluminum frame for durability. Google has even confirmed some basic design principles by publishing a display of the telephone on their official MadeByGoogle Twitter account. The distinctive dual-finish back has disappeared this time, replaced by a single finish like most other phones. It comes in three colors, Just Black, Clearly White and Coral (orange).

Basic principles

We do not currently know what the dimensions will be, but early rumors indicate that it will be about the same size as its predecessor. However, we can reasonably expect that the IP68 is water and dust resistant, supports all four wireless providers (as well as US Cellular and Google Fi) and has no infrared blaster. It is not only supported by all four providers, but is also officially transported by all four, unlike the previous versions that were exclusive to Verizon at the launch.

  • Height: 5.78 inch (Google Pixel 4), 6.31 inch (Google Pixel 4 XL)
  • Width: 2.71 inch (Google Pixel 4), 2.97 inch (Google Pixel 4 XL)
  • Depth: 0.32 inch (0.37 inch with camera bump)
  • Weight: Unknown
  • Dust / water resistance: IP68
  • Supported carriers: Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, US Cellular, Google Fi
  • Infrared blaster: no

As nowadays with all phones, we expect the Pixel 4 to have an operating temperature of 32 ° F to 95 ° F.

  • Operating temperature: 32º to 95º F
  • Non-operating temperature: ## º to ## º F
  • Relative humidity: ## º to ## º F non-condensing
  • Business height: to ##, ### feet (though more) [19659042] Software

    The Nexus / Pixel setup has always been a way for Google to world knowledge to make with the latest version of Android. Pixels are almost always the first devices to receive new Android versions and they are guaranteed guaranteed for at least three years. The Pixel 4 and 4 XL will be Android 10 and one of the few phones with the latest version at the time of the release.

Skin

The Pixel line-up always works on Android. Although this version is not exactly ASOP (Android Open Source Project), it comes about as close to "pure" Android outside custom ROMs. It has a few improvements for Pixel users, such as Active Edge and additional special features that Google decides to add.

A new addition is the ability for Google Assistant to step in during a call when it is put on hold. Imagine calling an e-commerce website about a return and you wait 30 minutes. Instead of having to wait ridiculously long for someone to talk to, according to 9to5Google, you can press a button and Google Assistant will hold for you. As soon as a real person crosses the line, Google Assistant will let you know and you can jump in again.

According to XDA, Google Assistant is getting smarter. It can now use the information on the screen to provide more custom options. An example is the ability to reply to an incoming message with just your voice. The user interface also gets a new coat of paint.

Another addition is Pixel Themes. According to XDA, Google is adding a new option to the default launcher on Pixel that consolidates the new icon shapes, themes & fonts that they have added to Developer Options in Android 10. This app has already been referred to on Pixel devices on Android 10 and will probably be available for all Pixel devices and not just the Google Pixel 4 and 4 XL. The screen shows with the app that you can adjust the background and environment display clock in addition to the new adjustment options in Developer Options.

There is also a pre-installed voice recorder app that can distinguish between different types of audio and can use the new Live Caption function to transcribe your recording. You can also scrub along the audio timeline to jump to specific points in the recording.

  • Version: stock Android (Pixel version)

Display

The Pixel 4 XL had a small screen size from 6.3 inches to 6.23 inches. The Pixel 4 will actually be larger at 5.7 inches. Both have OLED panels (produced by Samsung) with support for HDR and always-on display. Regarding the resolutions, the Pixel 4 has the same resolution as its predecessor, but the Pixel 4 XL actually has a higher 3040 x 1440 (the Pixel 3 XL was 2960 x 1440).

The screen uses the P3 range for the first time (the same as used by iPhones), allowing for higher color accuracy. It also supports HDR10 content on YouTube and Netflix.

The "forehead" is the same size as the Pixel 3, but the chin is one of the smallest in the industry. Fans of symmetry may not like it, but the extra sensors for Soli and secure face unlocking are in that top ring and at least they have not used a notch.

Both Pixel 4 devices can run games at 90 fps, 30 extra frames per second than the standard screen. To enable this, you must enable Smooth Display, a feature that allows Android to dynamically adjust the refresh rate based on the active apps. 90 Hz is switched on when playing a game. When you call, the screen is adjusted to 60 Hz.

The Pixel 4 also has a feature known as Ambient EQ, which is essentially Google & # 39; s version of Apple & # 39; s True Tone. Based on the ambient lights, the display automatically adjusts the white balance for a better viewing experience. The screen will appear more consistent and one function less that iPhone fans can claim to have Pixel devices.

Performance

The SoC of choice for Android flagships for 2019 in the US is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855. The Pixel 4 and 4 XL uses this processor, but this is not allowed are underclocked like last year's Google Pixel 3.

Regarding memory, the RAM has increased to 6 GB. The first three pixels had 4 GB of RAM, which has caused persistent problems that the Google community has asked to address. Although 4 GB is sufficient to use Android, it leads to inconsistent performance compared to other flagships.

Then there is the Neural Core, which seems to replace the Visual Core of earlier pixels. It controls all image processing, including the HDR + of the Pixel that makes impressive photography possible. In addition, it also performs all machine learning calculations needed for the new functions (more about that later), so you don't have to wait for it to finish.

Front camera

There are several sensors in the top panel of the phone, including the front camera. The remaining image sensors are used for face recognition or for Motion Sense .

The Pixel 3 had a standard selfie lens and a wide-angle lens, but the Pixel 4 only has one selfie camera: a wide-angle shooter. Google applies an algorithm to photos taken with the front camera to correct distortion thanks to the wider field of view.

  • Resolution: 8 MP
  • Aperture: Unknown
  • Zoom: Unknown
  • Flash: Unknown
  • Image stabilization: yes, EIS [19659009] RAW support: Unknown
  • Object detection: Unknown
  • Formats: Unknown

Leaks indicate that the Google Pixel 4 accommodates all cameras in a square module similar to the Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro. The Pixel 4 is supplied with three cameras, two camera lenses and a 3D ToF sensor (time of flight). Rumors indicate that the second lens will be a telephoto lens, giving the Pixel 4 the much needed optical zoom lens.

The Pixel 4 has a square camera bubble on the back with two image sensors and a 3D ToF (flight time) sensor. The image sensors are placed behind a standard lens and a telephoto lens. The bokeh effect will be much better than its predecessor thanks to extra data. In addition to the cameras, the square modules also include an LED flash and a microphone. There is an 8x hybrid zoom lens that uses 2x the telephoto lens and combines it with the algorithms of Super Res Zoom.

There are now "double exposure" controls. With one slider you can control the overall exposure of the scene, while the other controls only shadows, and this all happens live in the viewfinder.

Then there is "Live HDR", which allows you to see exactly how HDR + is applied to your photos before you take them. According to Wired, "HDRNet" (the algorithm on which it is based) can make adjustments in less than 20 milliseconds. Google has also added a new "Motion Mode" feature to take higher quality action photos, and Night Sight gets some speed-related enhancements and the ability to take photos of the night sky.

  • Resolution: 12 MP (wide angle), 16 MP (telephoto) and ToF
  • Sensor size: Unknown

Videography is similar to its predecessor with video recordings up to 4K at 60 fps. Slow motion improved to 480 fps at 720p thanks to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845. Audio Zoom controls the microphones (a feature recently added to Android 10) to focus on each zoomed area to make the subject of your video easier to hear.

  • Resolution: 720p, 1080p and 4K
  • Max frame rate: 30 fps for 720p, 60 fps for 1080p and 4K

Audio

Despite the return of the headphone connection in the Google Pixel 3a, it is not present in the Google Pixel 4 and 4 XL. This was expected because it has been missing for two years now and most of the industry is moving in that direction. Maybe a Google Pixel 4a will be added next year to save the port.

The forward-facing stereo speakers have disappeared. Instead, one speaker faces forward in the upper ring, while the other speaker is fired from below.

  • 3.5 mm headphone jack: no
  • Stereo speakers: yes, stereo speakers
  • Microphones: 3
  • Max. Speaker volume: Unknown

Media formats

Since this is a phone designed by Google, it has the usual list of codecs supported by Android. There are a few new additions to this list: Opus, AV1 and HDR10 +. Opus is an open and royalty-free codec that offers better quality than MP3. AV1 is an open and royalty-free video codec that acts as an alternative to H.264. Audio: MP3, AAC, AAC +, WMA, AMR-NB, AMR-WB, WAV, FLAC, APE, OGG, MID, M4A, IMY, AC3, EAC3, EAC3-JOC, AC4, Opus

  • Video: MKV, MOV, MP4, H.265 (HEVC), AVI, WMV, TS, 3GP, FLV, WEBM, HDR10 +, AV1
  • Sensors

    The Google Pixel 4 includes two infrared cameras & # 39; s for secure face unlocking, a first for Pixel devices. As with Apple's Face ID, it uses these sensors to unlock your phone even in low light. It contains a spotlight and a point projector to map your face.

    • Glonass: yes
    • BeiDou: no
    • Galileo: yes
    • QZSS: no

    Motion Sense

    The Pixel 4 is the first device that the Soli- Google radarchip. Soli can decrypt gestures with great precision, so you can perform actions on your phone without touching it.

    Known as Motion Sense, Google has added several gestures that are performed near the phone (that's right, near ; you don't have to put your hand awkwardly in front of the phone such as the LG G8 ThinQ). Due to the use of high radio frequencies, Motion Sense is not available everywhere. According to XDA, it will be available to begin in the following countries:

    • American Samoa
    • Austria
    • Australia
    • Belgium
    • Bulgaria
    • Canada
    • Croatia
    • Cyprus
    • Czech Republic
    • Denmark
    • Estonia
    • Finland
    • France
    • French Guiana
    • French Indian Ocean Territories (both MCC & # 39; s listed)
    • French- Polynesia

    Another gesture is & # 39; Skip numbers & # 39 ;. By waving your hand from right to left or from left to right (you can change the direction), you go to the previous number or the next number.

    Finally, there is "Silence interruptions", which lets you swipe the same to snooze alarms and turn off calls. And as with all these gestures, you do this without touching the screen.

    Connectivity

    The new system-on-a-chip that powers the Google Pixel 4 supports Wi-Fi standards 80.211.ad, ay and ax. However, until now most phones have not included these additional standards, so for now we also expect that the Pixel 4 is not. However, this may change, so we will keep you informed.

    With more support for dual SIM in Android 10, we believe that creating the unlocked version of Google Pixel 4 dual SIM makes perfect sense. In addition to the fact that the Pixel 3 was dual SIM (via a second eSIM slot), it makes sense that Google will reduce this feature.

    The use of Bluetooth devices is also being upgraded. Fast Pair, Google's response to Apple's W1 / W2 chip, gets a new page & # 39; Device detail & # 39; in the latest version of Android. Here you can see the battery of the case and each earphone separately. You can locate any Fast Pair device using the updated Find My Device app.

    • Wi-Fi: 802.11a / b / g / n / ac 2.4 GHz + 5.0 GHz
    • Bluetooth: 5.0
    • NFC: yes
    • Mobile: nano-SIM, eSIM
    • Port: USB Type-C

    With Pixel 4 recently through the FCC, we now have a list of its cellular bands. Interestingly, it is available for purchase through all four major US providers – AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon.

    • FDD-LTE bands 2, 4, 5, 7, 12, 13, 14, 17, 25, 26, 30, 38, 41, 48, 66, 71
    • CDMA EV-DO Rev . A BC0, BC1, BC10
    • GSM / EDGE (850, 1900 MHz)

    Security

    The Pixel 4 is the first Android phone in the US with secure face unlocking. Using a range of sensors, the Pixel 4 can detect your face, regardless of how you hold your phone. Unlike the iPhone, you don't have to swipe up to unlock your phone. Instead, it is unlocked as soon as you see your phone and the Soli sensor recognizes that you want to unlock your phone. And your face data, along with other sensitive transactions, is stored locally in the Titan M security chip for ultimate protection.

    • Fingerprint scanner: no
    • Face scanner: yes
    • Iris scanner: no
    • Manual authentication: password, PIN, cartridge, swipe

    Box contains

    The content of the box is essentially the same as last year. However, a notable omission is the inclusion of USB-C earbuds, so we recommend buying a pair such as Acessorz USC C earphones. If you want one that uses Google & # 39; s Fast Pair, you can also use Libratone USB-C, which can send voice commands to Google Assistant.

    • Pixel 4 telephone
    • 3.3 ft USB-C to USB-C cable (USB 2.0)
    • 18 W USB-C PD power adapter
    • Quick Switch adapter
    • SIM eject tool [19659171] Quick start guide

    Accessories

    Google plans to update their wireless Pixel Buds for years. The Pixel Buds 2 are scheduled to be released in the spring of 2020 for a price of $ 179.

    The other accessory that Google is making available during the Made by Google 2019 event is a new USB-C Titan key. This is a physical key that is built according to the FIDO standard and that offers stronger two-factor authentication. Unlike software-based token (or sms and e-mail), you must physically have the key with you. Unlike the previous iteration of Google, it has a USB-C connector which makes authentication easier if you connect it directly to the phone (for the previous keys you have to pair it with Bluetooth or NFC).
