The Pixel 4 XL is the worst-kept secret of 2019

Overall, it was an interesting little 5-minute video that gave us a bit of an early look into the upcoming phone, but didn't seem to reveal a whole lot more. Similarly to other phone makers, Google will be opting for a higher refresh rate, with the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL both set to use 90Hz displays, which Google will dub "Smooth Display". Not only have rumours been circulating about the anticipated devices, but leaked images and videos - allegedly of the official handsets - have also emerged. Again, the leak doesn't really show any specs or design elements that we didn't already know about - but it does give a good look at the phone's design, and leaves nearly nothing for Google to reveal when the device is finally announced in October.

Google Pixel flagships have been a pioneer in smartphone photography. Or maybe the whole thing was orchestrated by Google to keep some buzz on the Pixel during iPhone week. Rear cameras will comprise a Sony IMX363 12.2 MP sensor with f/1.7 aperture. Pixel 4 could also get up to 8X zoom and a DSLR-like accessory for Pixel 4. It also reveals that the Pixel 4 XL is powered by the Snapdragon 855 chipset.

One of the specs that's mentioned before is the 90Hz display.

Google Pixel 4 XL is expected to feature a 6.23-inch display. The difference is the leaks provide the clearest looks at the Pixel 4 we've had yet.

According to GenK, a store in Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam, is selling prototype Pixel 4 devices before the phone has even been announced. The feature allows users to perform different actions such as changing songs, silencing alarms and more. Google said Motion Sense will be available in select Pixel countries. Not only have we seen a much more bearable camera module (one that doesn't conjure tropophobia triggers), we now have an idea of how well it will run mobile games.

In these photos, the page dedicated to facial recognition indicates that the latter can work even with glasses, or with "light" sunglasses. How Google Pixel 4 smartphones fare will be the next big question? The camera design looks similar to the iPhone 11 but less protruding. Until then, the Pixel 4 XL seems to have game. The bezels kept are just to incorporate for the sensors.
