On Tuesday, Google is set to announce the Pixel 4. Perhaps one of the most leaked phones in history, if you’re interested in the device chances are good you probably already know a good bit about it.
ShutterGoogle’s Pixel 4, the world’s worst-kept secret, is less than two weeks away from its public debut. And, as always, the leaks just keep coming. This time around, 9to5Google allegedly got its hands on the shipped specs for the smartphone. Here’s a quick look at how Google’s upcoming device stacks up against the competition across a few major categories.
That said, Google is set to verify all those rumours (or maybe throw a curveball and prove them all wrong) Tuesday morning at an event in New York City. The announcements are expected to start on Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning, depending on where you live in Australia.
If you’d like to watch the announcement live and didn’t score an invitation to the event, Google will be streaming the entire announcement on YouTube.
As for what to expect, the Pixel 4 is expected to have a brand-new face unlock feature as well as motion-sensing radar and a second back camera. The phone is expected to come in two different sizes, have an audio recorder that can automatically transcribe recordings and a new feature that will automatically call emergency services when it detects you’re in a car crash, amongst other features.
Beyond just the Pixel 4, we’re also likely to see the launch of the next-generation of Google Assistant, new Pixel Buds, and a new version of Google’s PixelBook laptop. We also might see a new version of Google’s mesh router system, Nest Wifi, and perhaps a new version of the Google Home Mini.
As always, be sure to check back here as well as with our pals Gizmodo Australia after the announcements for more info on everything that’s announced.
