Google’s new Pixel 3a is by far the best sub-$500 smartphone you can buy. But the Pixel 4 is where all the most excitement lies and now it’s easy to see why.
In a new tweet, SlashLeaks, the site now run by remarkably accurate leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer, has revealed the Pixel 4 has an all-new design. And it shows Google will finally give the Pixel range some style with a perfect hybrid of the Galaxy S10+ and iPhone XS, following years of wrapping great tech in dated chassis.
Slashleaks obtained its images via case maker Skinomi, which is so confident in its sources that it is already taking pre-orders from customers. The bad news, however, is Skinomi is only selling a screen protector at this stage so we don’t get a look at the back of the phone. With Google widely expected to move the Pixel range to dual or even triple cameras (my understanding is dual), that’s a key point of interest.
Google accidentally confirmed the Pixel 4 back in March but, until now, the key details have largely remained a mystery. This is in complete contrast to the Pixel 3 which, arguably, was the most leaked smartphone of last year.
So at this point, we merely have a wishlist. Google nailing the design was one, but it is also essential that the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL come with more RAM than their predecessors, larger storage options and bigger batteries. Google’s Pixels still have the world’s best point and shoot smartphone cameras, while rivals have increasingly gone for gimmicks, but the rest of the phone now needs to step up.
You’ve cracked one piece of the puzzle Google. Now with Apple and Samsung both struggling, it’s time to deliver on the rest.
