Weekend poll: Are you already planning to get Google's Pixel 4?

Usually, we don't ask this question until a whole lot later in the year when announcements have been made, specs have been determined, and all that's left between you and a purchase is the willingness to hit "add to cart." But, we've noticed quite a trend when it comes to our readers speaking out about purchasing the Pixel 4, even though there's still more that we don't know than we do. If for nothing other than comparison later in the year, are you already planning for the Pixel 4?

Pixel 4 already caught on camera in real-world testing

Following the teaser image published by Google yesterday, the Pixel 4 has now been caught in the wild, giant square camera module and all. It's not uncommon for prototypes of unreleased phones to be photographed — the Pixel 3 XL was found in a Lyft and the Galaxy S10+ seen on a bus, for instance, but this is very early for the Pixel 4 to already have been spotted in person.

Hopes of early Google Pixel 4 launch dashed by leaked Verizon marketing calendar

Google took the unusual step out-leaking the leakers with a render of the upcoming Pixel 4, even though we had been expecting the usual October announcement. That lead us to wonder whether Google might be pushing its schedule forward and getting ahead of the 2019 iPhone launch, but alas that appears not to be the case.

Google teased the Pixel 4 like it's coming out soon — it'd be better if it were (opinion)

Earlier today Google pushed out a teaser for its upcoming Pixel 4, finally showing off the phone we all knew existed in an official capacity. But however much we might see of the phone now, we still have a long wait ahead of us. Google's Pixels have always been launched in October. And frankly, sticking to that schedule again this year is a terrible idea.

Google just showed us the Pixel 4 months before it will launch

Google just unveiled the Pixel 4 - a phone that won't launch probably until October - on the official Made by Google Twitter account today, June 12th. Given the design of the phone leaked just two days ago, it seems Google decided it wasn't worth hiding anymore and just posted about it on Twitter, which is a pretty crazy awesome thing to do.

The Pixel 4 could get iPhone-style True Tone adaptive white balance

In addition to the upcoming Face ID-like security planned for Android, Google could be taking yet another page from Apple's playbook — or from its own, depending on how you look at it. Our friends at XDA Developers spotted a "Display white balance" setting in earlier Android Q builds, and paired with some new sensors and a few other details, it sounds like the Pixel 4 may have the chops to dynamically adjust its white balance based on ambient light and color.

Google Pixel 4 could include 'Soli' radar chip for air gestures

We're just starting to learn the first details about this year's Pixel phones. Yesterday came the first reputable render, seemingly confirming the phone would have a large camera array on the back. One report now claims the Pixel 4 will include the Soli radar chip that Google first showed off in 2015.

First Pixel 4 renders show a massive rear camera module

In what could be the first credible leak of Google's upcoming smartphones, the Pixel 4 and 4 XL, some key details about the phones have been revealed. First and foremost, it seems Google has finally decided to cave to a multi-camera system on its 2019 flagship, with a positively huge hump cut out of the back of the phone to make room for the array. As has been pointed out by many, said hump looks a whole lot like the one from alleged renders of the next iPhone.

The next-gen Google Assistant will be super fast and work on-device, coming to Pixels later this year

Google Assistant is about to get smaller, smarter, and faster. The company has announced at I/O 2019 that it has shrunk 100GB of voice samples and language modeling into half a gigabyte and can now store them locally on devices, meaning that consecutive voice queries can now be responded to immediately. This next-generation Assistant is coming to the Pixel phones to be released later this year.

Google Pixel 4 and 4 XL might be codenamed "coral" and "flame"

We've taken our time in covering the lead-up to the Pixel 4 and 4 XL announcements — presumably several months away. Our strongest statement on the developments so far was our editorial about modular clickbait. But we may have more to latch onto from here on out with the revelation of some new aquatic codenames: "coral," "needlefish," and "flame."
