The most recent launch prediction comes from Nikkei Asia Review, which states, "the search giant will unveil two new 4G Pixel smartphones, as expected, and possibly a new smartwatch and notebook too".
If the report can hold its ground, Google would one-up Apple by launching a 5G smartphone first. But the 5G Pixel 4 would have to compete against the upcoming Galaxy S11 5G and OnePlus 8 5G, devices that would sport even better hardware than Google's handsets.
Google will unveil the Pixel 4 next week, and the press conference promises to be incredibly boring to anyone familiar with all the Pixel 4 rumors and leaks so far. The 5G version of the Pixel is now in testing in China apparently with an Autumn release next year (Downunder time) - while not early and over 12 months behind some 5G phones it would still put them ahead of an Apple 5G release. Following the event, a report surfaced that stated Google is not satisfied with WearOS, therefore, the launch of the alleged Pixel Watch did not take place. Google is also working on a version with 5G technology, which is in test production. Motorola has a 5G Moto Mod add-on that brings 5G connectivity to its Moto Z line of phones.More news: An Ontario mother witnessed her son's stabbing death outside of his school

There have been plenty of rumors about the Pixel 4's features - some of which have been confirmed by Google - but 5G connectivity hasn't been at the top of the list.
Google Pixel 4 is scheduled to launch in the USA on October 15.
What we're saying is that the Pixel 4 is definitely a go for next week, but we wouldn't plan on seeing a 5G version of that phone.
