While we have a pretty good idea of what the Google Pixel 4 will look like, thanks to a tweet from Google itself, it’s still a bit murky about what it might run like. Thanks to new leaks, we now know a bit more about what’s in the trunk, other than a return of the air gestures, so let’s get into it.

There will be two Pixel 4 models, according to leaks provided to 9to5Google, the regular-sized model and the XL, a larger model. The difference between the models is apparently minimal (unlike another major release’s) but the Pixel 4 will have a 5.7-inch OLED with Full HD+ while the XL will feature a 6.3-inch OLED with Quad HD+. Both screens will have a new feature called ‘Smooth Display’, which will give the screens a high refresh rate of 90Hz (90 refreshes per second).

In terms of camera news, the source also had the tea. Both models will allegedly have two rear sensors; a 12-megapixel with phase-detect auto-focus as well as a 16-megapixel telephoto lens. Google is also reportedly working on an attachment lens, similar to something you might stick on a DSLR, to take its camera game to another level.

Batteries on the two models will reportedly vary in size with the regular Pixel 4 sporting a 2800 mAh battery while the XL gets a more beefed-up 3700 mAh battery. Both will feature the Snapdragon 855 chip and 6-gigabytes of RAM with a 64-gigabyte or 128-gigabyte option available.

We already knew about the bulky camera bump, akin to a phone butt, and the reintroduction of air gestures using a Soli radar chip to make it possible. If all these leaks turn out to be true, Samsung and Apple will have a serious competition on their hands. Too bad it’s probably going to be the ugly duckling of the lot.

Google Pixel 4 Is Bringing Back A Feature Nobody Wanted

There are a number of dumb but cool features on the latest smartphones like beauty filters and live photos. But perhaps the crown for the coolest dumb feature goes to 'air gestures' - and they're making a return to the upcoming Google Pixel 4. Very soon, you'll be able to control your phone by waving at it, just like in 2013.
