At long last, the Google Pixel 4 is upon us. Besides being one of the best and most recognizable smartphones in the world today, the Google Pixel 4 hasn’t exactly garnered the hype of an iPhone or Samsung launch in 2019. However, irrespective of this, the newest Google phone is certainly something to get excited over, since the Pixel lineup of phones are consistently some of the best in the world. If nothing else, consistently the awards for best smartphone in the industry go to Google. The Pixel and Pixel XL have always been significantly different since the series began though, and in this article, we’re going to break down the smaller of the two phones, the Google Pixel 4.

What is Google Pixel 4?
Well, in every Pixel launch, there is a Pixel, and Pixel XL phone launched side by side. The XL is usually the flagship, while the Pixel is not a budget option, occupied by the “a”, but simply a smaller, less feature loaded alternative. Unsurprisingly, this is the less popular choice of the Pixel series, since it is not the “flagship” per se. However, it does retain a lot of the new features and cool breakthroughs of the larger pixel, as well as that pure, stock Android experience. With that being said, let’s get into the main features of the Google Pixel 4.
What are the Specifications of the Google Pixel 4?
The following are the standout specifications of the brand new Google Pixel 4:
- P-OLED Display of 5.7 inches. This gets the very same screen as the Pixel 4 XL, but in a smaller guise. This setup makes for a very sharp display indeed.
- Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on all devices. A great sight to see Google finally putting some kind of drop resistant hardware on their phone.
- Android 10 preloaded. This is one of the main reasons why people buy a Pixel phone. Naturally, being a Google device, the Pixel range of phones gets all the updates first, before any other manufacturer carrying Android on their system.
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset. It sucks that this phone didn’t receive the 855+ treatment, like its competitor, the OnePlus 7 series, but we’re sure Google will build the software experience around the hardware to ensure that the tech isn’t underpowered.
- 6GB Ram standard across range. This is a great upgrade, since the Pixel 3 series was underpowered in the RAM department, expect this phone to provide a much smoother experience than its predecessor.
- Choice of 64GB or 128GB ROM on device. We would have liked a bigger, more diverse range of options for this phone, but given the choices, it won’t be a hard pick for consumers.
- Dual front selfie camera, with main shooter of 8MP. This houses the newest face unlock technology from Google, which we’ll get to on a later point. But now, just like the rear cameras have always been the best, we can expect the very same from Google’s newest front camera.
- Dual rear camera with main shooter of 12MP. You can simply expect this to be one of the best in the entire industry, as Google always delivers when it comes to the cameras in their devices. They always tend to be standout features in their lineup of smartphones.
- Face ID, with no fingerprint sensor. Google are so confident that their Face ID technology is the best in the industry that they have actually removed any and all fingerprint sensors from the phone, undoubtedly one of the boldest moves made by any company in a long time.
- 2800mAH non-removable battery. This is a very small battery relative to the industry, but we’re sure Google will make it work out.
- “Oh So Orange” color option. This sparky color option gives a lot of personality to this device.
