Good, but expensive. What will be the new flagship smartphones Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL
In the fall of 2019, Google should present a new generation of smartphones Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL. The smartphone should get an enlarged display, support for 5G and the next version of the Android 10.0 operating system.
Unlike the Google Android operating system, which has more than two billion active devices, smartphones from the creators of the most famous search engine have not gained such popularity in the market.
As we have already written, the annual sales of Pixel smartphones are several times smaller than the leading manufacturers sell even for the quarter.
A couple of months after the presentation of the latest generation of Pixel 3 smartphones, at the beginning of 2019, research company Strategy Analytics stated that Pixel is the fastest growing smartphone made in the USA.
An increase of 43% was reported, unlike last year, but without specific sales figures, these figures are not quite representative.
This is not to say that the Pixel 3 XL with a 6.3-inch OLED display, a Snapdragon 845 processor, 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory was the worst option on the market, but with such a price – $ 1000 – it had plenty of competitors.
More than half a year is left before the presentation of the new flagships of Pixel 4, but rumors and leaks about the new creation of Google are already being discussed on the network. Probably, this generation of phones will break through the wall of user confidence and turn Pixel from a niche solution for brand lovers into a real mass product.
As we have already written, one of the latest leaks about Google’s new smartphone was the information on Dual SIM support under the Dual Active (DSDA) scheme with simultaneous operation of two slots, as is done in many Chinese devices.
Thus, the corporation is trying to increase its presence in the markets of Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. In the US, where smartphones are most often bought along with the contract of one of the major mobile operators, two SIM-cards are not too popular.
With regard to technical characteristics, according to Tech Advisor, both the basic version of Google Pixel 4 and the model with a large display Pixel 4 XL must be equipped with the latest generation of Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset, together with 6 GB of RAM and 256 to 512 GB of internal storage.
A 5G-capable module will also be installed in the processor. However, it is not yet known whether both smartphones can work on the new network standard, or this option is available only for the top version.
New Pixel should grow in size: the base “four” should receive a display with a diagonal of 6 inches, and Pixel 4 XL will increase to 6.6 inches.
Obviously, a new version of the Android 10.0 Q operating system will be installed on smartphones from the factory, which should be officially presented in the near future.
Google developers must also add a second camera to the back surface, which will be responsible for the dual optical zoom. Hello from Oppo, who recently introduced a camera with 10x optical zoom.

Traditionally for Google, the new generation of smartphones should be introduced in October 2019. The prices of the devices are not yet known, but the network suggests that for the new Google Pixel 4 it will be necessary to pay around $ 1200- $ 1300.
Again, judging by preliminary data, the phone cannot be called boring, but it is unlikely that most users will make their choice in favor of it, comparing prices with other flagships.
Recall, March 26, 2019, the Chinese company Huawei will introduce a new line of flagships P30. It is expected that the average version of the device with a 6-inch OLED-display will have 8 GB of RAM and up to 256 GB of internal memory, a fingerprint scanner built into the screen and three main cameras, including a 5x optical zoom. At the same time, the price of the base P30 should not exceed $ 800.
