One more day, a series of references to Google's worst kept secret from 2019. It's probably best that fans have an idea of what they're getting into before the day arrives. So far, everyone's expectations have been met, but that does not mean that there are no disappointing twists. Even in this recent flood of new information, there is a small detail that makes Pixel 4 less competitive than the flagship ships of late 2019 this year.
The appearance of Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL is hardly secret. Google has even eliminated these leaks by confirming that it will actually be doing a square tracking shot on its flagships this year. However, the last few days were not just about renderings, but also leakages of functional units, most of them from Vietnam.
The Verge has received another series of live photos of the device showing this year's rendition of the black and white "Panda" design. Fans of this two-tone theme might be disappointed if they see another spin on those colors. There is also the upper bezel, which is thicker than the lower bezel, which makes it slightly unbalanced but offers more functionality.
These photos also reveal the technical details of the phone, which are now no longer a secret. In addition to the processors and cameras from the photos, XDA will also dive into the Google Camera App Version 7.0 to see what features Pixel 4 will provide. These include the previous features such as audio zoom and new AR-based features like Measure Mode and a mysterious "McFly" rewind mode.
In terms of benchmarks, it seems that the Pixel 4 has another bad news for the fans. In addition to purchasing a Snapdragon 855 and not the 855 Plus, it seems Google's flagship ships will use a slightly older UFS 2.1
