Even if you're not a fan of Google or its ecosystem, you should admire what the company has done about leaks this year. Last year, Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL leaked in May, more than four months before the call was announced. But this year, Google has decided that if you can't beat them, join them. He then tweeted a photo of Pixel 4 once the rendering begins to emerge and confirm the use of Project Soli's radar-based chip for features that use hand movements called Motion Sense. Google does this through blog posts and posted videos. At the same time, the company revealed that yes, there will be a secure version of face unlock on the new Pixel that will use 3D mapping like the iPhone. And today, Google also confirmed that the Coral / Orange pixels appearing in a series of videos and live images are 100% valid. It does this by placing ads where it will surely be seen by a large number of consumers in Times Square. Found by Reddit users with LousyTX and NVRL and handles (via 9to5Google), the billboard shows the Pixel 4 rear camera module says "Hi Google, set a reminder for the date October 15". That date, of course, is when Google will host the next Made by Google event and we'll see the latest Pixels released at that time.
Google has confirmed two of the three reported color options for this phone.
This is not the first time that Google has used the bright lights of Times Square to promote a new phone. You may recall that in November 2009, Google allowed consumers to call a number or enter the location they wanted on the website. The giant NASDAQ sign in Times Square shows the results of this request; This is done to promote the step-by-step directions available to Motorola DROID using Google Maps directly from the get-go.
Pixel series 4 now has two of the three color options expected by Google. The company has distributed Pixel 4 photos in black and has now revealed that the Coral / Orange colors are real. The third color option can be a White / Panda model.

Pixel 4 XL is expected to come with a 6.3-inch AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1440 x 3040 (19: 9 aspect ratio) and a refresh rate of 90Hz. It is 50% faster than traditional speed smartphones refreshing and should provide users with a smooth and buttery rolling experience. Under the hood will be the Snapdragon 855 mobile platform along with 6GB of memory and 64GB / 128GB of original storage. Google is taking a risk here because it doesn't want to use Snapdragon 855+ which is overclocked with an improved Adreno 640 GPU 15% increase in graphics performance.
This phone will come with three sensors on the back, placed in a square camera module in the upper left corner. There will be a main camera 12 .2MP telephoto camera with 5x optical zoom (8x hybrid zoom) and a time of flight depth sensor or spectral sensor that can display infrared and ultraviolet light and X-rays; This is not detected by the human eye. A feature called Motion Mode will take action photos with moving subjects in the foreground and blurred background. The next generation of Night Sight Generation will have settings that will allow the camera to take a longer exposure to astrophotography. The latter is a fancy name for taking photos of the night sky, including the stars. And it is speculated that the camera will use the wide-range P3 color capture used by Apple. This will allow Pixel 4 cameras to capture the 25% wider color range.
Pixel 4 is expected to bring smaller 5.7-inch AMOLED displays with 1080 x 2280 resolution. The rear camera module will not offer a third sensor. The remaining specifications will be the same, except the battery. Pixel 4 XL will have a 3700 mAh battery while it is in pixels 4 it will have a weight of 2800mAh.
Now the question is, what will Google reveal next?
