Google has announced that the official release date for the Google Pixel 4 is October 15th, 2019! With not long to wait, we thought we would take a look at what the Google Pixel 4 is set to be like and hopefully help you decide whether to invest into a new phone. If you are a loyal Apple user, this may be the phone to sway you and make you leave the iPhone!


Previous Google Pixels have been in the price region of £600 to £800 on release. The Google Pixel 4 is set to be around £1,000, making it their most expensive model yet. There will likely be storage variations which could alter the price, but £1,000 is looking like the general region. Following the announcement of the Google Pixel 4, it has been said that in November, the XL version of the phone should be released. The Google Pixel 4 XL will obviously be more expensive than the original model, but if you prefer a larger screen, it may be worth the extra pennies!


Perhaps the most exciting and important feature of any phone, the camera, has been to a very high standard with previous Google Pixel devices, and this one is no exception. Thanks to Google sharing a picture of the rear of the device on Twitter, we can see that the design of the Google Pixel 4 camera is a square camera bump on the rear of the phone which features two cameras. It will be the first of the Google Pixel line to feature two rear cameras, as previously, Google has stuck with single cameras. Unfortunately, the design of the front camera is still unknown as Google have kept this part a secret. We will just have to sit tight and wait to see if the selfie quality is good enough. However, if the previous Google Pixel devices are anything to go by, the front camera should be high-spec and take the perfect selfie!

Display and Appearance

Upon rumours, we can assume that the Google Pixel 4 will not feature a fingerprint scanner. All of the previous Google Pixel phones have had a fingerprint scanner, so this could suggest that the Google Pixel 4 will be the first of its kind to not have a fingerprint scanner. Instead, it is likely that the device will opt for facial recognition or voice activation. Further leaks have displayed that the phone will feature a 3.5mm headphone port and the glass back will be one colour, rather than two-toned liked previous models. Furthermore, the display of the standard Google Pixel 4 is set to be 5.7-inches, and the XL will have a 6.3-inch screen.

Battery and Performance

The Google Pixel 3 was only 4GB of memory whereas, with the Pixel 4, it is looking like it will be boosted to 6GB. An increase in memory will help improve the devices ability to multitask and launch apps. It is hoped that Google has also introduced a 128GB of storage model; this would top the competitor device iPhone 11’s 64GB. In terms of battery, there appear to be no improvements. The Google Pixel 3 possessed a 2,915-mAh power pack and the 3 XL had 3,430-mAh. The newer Pixel 4 will, unfortunately, drop to 2,800 mAh but, the Pixel 4 XL will improve to 3,700 mAh.

We will not know what the official Google Pixel 4 will look like until the 15th of October 2019, but it’s brilliant to get a peek at what the phone might be like.
