Google's upcoming Pixel 4 handset looks to ditch the single camera approach, while still delivering the pure Android experiences we've come to expect.
Google's Pixel phones are the search giant's expression of what it wants to see in an Android handset with a software-led approach. They're typically released after the hype cycles of the latest Samsung and Apple handsets has waned, but we already know a surprising amount about the upcoming Google Pixel 4
- Multi-camera array on the back
- Possible in-display fingerprint sensor
- Will Google go multi-camera?
- Expect AI tweaking even with multiple lenses
- Snapdragon 855 likely
- Fixed storage almost inevitable
- Android Q onboard with upgrades down the track
- Will Google fix its RAM problem?
- 5G Pixel 4 possible, but not guaranteed
- "Radar" chip for gesture-based control rumoured
- Battery capacity TBC
- Expect wireless charging
- Google's shaking up its Pixel strategy, but will consumers follow?
Pricing and availability
- Expect pricing upwards from $1,200+
There's no word on pricing or carriers for the Pixel 4 just yet, but it doesn't take too much crystal ball gazing to suggest that Google's premium phones will continue to command premium prices.
That's especially true given the existence of the mid-range Google Pixel 3a.
As such, we'd expect to see the Google Pixel land in Australia at an outright price above $1,000, with the larger XL model commanding somewhere in the region of a $200 premium.
The current model Pixel 3 retails at $1,199, and that's where we'd expect Pixel 4 pricing to start, with heavier costs for larger models, more storage and possibly for a 5G variant.Back to top
