Last week, we reported that Google's Pixel 4 was rumoured to be coming in a bold new colour scheme. We now have a name for the Fanta-esque finish and it's very fitting.
According to a report on 9To5Google, the next Pixel range will come in a choice of three finishes: 'Just Black', 'Clearly White' and - wait for it - 'Oh So Orange'. A separate source claimed there will also be a blue option, which would be a break from tradition. (Previous Pixel phones have launched in three colours.)
Whichever colour you plump for, the Pixel 4's thick upper bezel and dominant camera bump will be part of the design. In the wake of bezel-free phones like the Samsung Galaxy S10 and Oppo Reno 5G, it's a polarising look for a new flagship. With that said, it's what's inside that counts, my friends.
Recent specification leaks are looking very impressive indeed. They include a Snapdragon 855 processor, 6GB of RAM, up to 128GB of storage, a fancy 90Hz display and a trio of vastly improved rear-facing cameras. Here are the specs we're 99% certain the Pixel 4 will ship with.

Everything will be revealed during Google's big launch event New York. For Aussies, the time to jot on your calendar is October 16, 1am Wednesday AEST. We'll bring you all the (official) specifications, pricing and release date info then.
This week has been all about the iPhone 11 - but that changes today. In an apparent bid to steal Apple's limelight, a hands-on video of the Google Pixel 4 has leaked online. It shows everything about the new phone. And we mean everything. Here is the video.
