Google’s Pixel 4 and Pixel 4XL are among the many captivating phones of 2019. It is because of this hype that we made a pre-speculation video of this phone. Most importantly, it didn’t live to our expectations based on the leaks.
Today is the day for Google’s big hardware event. Well, you might already have guessed that we’ve got some more leaks for you. Although these fresh leaks don’t add plenty to the previous leaks, they are still pretty interesting.
Best Buy pricing
Firstly, Best Buy pricing data shows that the 64GB Pixel 4 XL (on Verizon and Sprint) will cost $999. Important to note, this is the pricing that was obtained by 9to5Google. With this $100 price hike from the last generation Pixel phones, not a lot of Google fans are going to be happy. Well, there is not always the sad news as the updated Nest Mini speaker will be priced at $49.99, just as before.
Second, we all know that the influential YouTubers in the industries are first to get the latest phones for review. Linus Sebastian, better known as Linus Tech Tips seems to be one of those YouTubers to get an early hands-on with Pixel 4. In his recent episode of The WAN Show, he was spotted holding a Pixel 4 by a Redditor.
The Secret Google Event
The story not even nearly ends over here as a renowned actor and rapper “Awkwafina” was photographed using the Oh So Orange Pixel 4 to take a selfie of herself and comedian Ali Wong at a Variety event that was actually sponsored by Google. Well, that means it was the Google-sponsored video to captivate the interest of the audience.
CEO of “T-Mobile John Legere”
To add to the leaks, the CEO of “T-Mobile” shows a photo of himself on Instagram where he is cooking some kind of food with two white Pixel 3 retail boxes. So does that mean that T-Mobile and Google are cooking up a special partnership for the Pixel event? In my opinion, there are strong chances to see “John Legere” on stage today announcing the partnership.
Redditors use the Pixel 4/ 4XL
Of late, some Redditors are uploading short videos of the Pixel 4 XL online. “u/PlayDohBear” is one of them who shared his thoughts on the device after using it for a few hours. He praised the 90Hz refresh rate of the screen with some obvious OS stutters on the pre-release Android 10 software on the phone.
The redditors add that the speakers sound fuller than the Pixel 3. Also, they found Motion Sense gimmicky, but otherwise working flawlessly. You can read the full post, and watch the video (original link) of Motion Sense shared by the same user.
No Pixel Buds in the Box
One sad news for the Pixel fans is that the Pixel 4 might not include earbuds in the box. Again, a user on Reddit shares some of the images of the leaked packaging of the Pixel 4. Not to our surprise, there were no Pixel buds and USB-C to 3.5mm adapter in the retail packaging. Does this mean that Google is following the Apple path of making more money with their phones? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.
Besides, the retail package shows an 18W charger, a Type-C cable, and a quick switch adapter is all you’ll get if you fork out for the Pixel 4. Important to note, the packaging is a Canadian unit so there are chances that contents may differ for the other countries.
Apart from this, Evan Blass also shares renders of the Pixel 4 in all three colors. He also shares some marketing images to make people aware of the phone.
Google Pixel 4/ 4XL Fabric Cases
Lastly, we’ve got some news to share from this popular Twitter guy from India Ishan Agarwal. Well, he tweets some shots of the Pixel 4s fabric cases. In my opinion, I am not sold on these cases like the ones from the last year looked better. Do you like the design of these new cases from Google? Let us know in the comments section below.
