Google, your next Pixel phone is leaking – left, right and center. This time, it’s the Pixel 4 XL. Two lengthy hands-on videos of the alleged Pixel 4 XL have leaked online showing off the full design as well as revealing some key specs and features of the phone in question. Leaving nothing to the imagination.
As per the fresh set of leaks, the Pixel 4 XL will be available in at least three colors – white, black and coral. Google will of course name them in its own cutesy way – just black, just white and so on. On the front there’s going to be a big forehead possibly to house the vast array of sensors the phone would come equipped with. The side and bottom bezels appear to be much smaller. There’s no physical fingerprint scanner in sight, so chances are we’re looking at an in-display solution. Or better still, just face unlock like the newer iPhones – we're not very sure of that yet.
As for hardware, the Pixel 4 XL is said to come with a 6.23-inch display with a 3040×1440-pixel resolution. 6GB RAM and 128GB storage are further tipped. The main changes are seen in software – with a new 90Hz refresh rate and Ambient EQ for “dynamic display adjustments based on lighting.”
We already know that the Pixel 4 XL (and Pixel 4) will be able to recognize hand gestures and detect when a user is nearby with the help of a dedicated Soli chip – which is Google’s in-house motion sensing tech that uses a miniaturized radar capable of sensing small motions around the device. Google has confirmed that Soli will allow users “to skip songs, snooze alarms, and silence phone calls, just by waving your hand” but there’s a high possibility that this would be limited to select markets.
Elsewhere, the Pixel 4 XL (and Pixel 4) will come with dual cameras and improved night sight, but it is also rumored to come with 8x zoom (hybrid) and the ability to shoot photos of the night sky.
Google will launch the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL) on October 15, if a new leak by serial tipster Evan Blass is anything to go by.
