“Google Pixel 4 XL is confirmed to come with 90Hz Smooth display, Snapdragon 855 SoC, and Android 10”
Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL leaks continue to surface the internet every passing day, revealing every major and minor detail ahead of the rumoured October 15th launch. We’ve recently come across fresh live images of the flagship, showing off the new ‘Coral’ colour in its full glory. Now, just a couple of days later, the Pixel 4 XL leaks are back at it again, and this time, three hands-one videos surfaced online, leaving nothing to the imagination. These hands-on videos show off just about everything, including the three different colours, photo samples, key hardware details and more. Though none of these videos is in the English language, the gist can be easily understood.
The hands-on video confirms the existence of ‘Smooth Display’ feature that dynamically switches between 60Hz and 90Hz refresh rate, depending on the content. However, Google warns about increased battery usage when this is enabled. There’s also a new Ambient EQ option that adjusts the colour temperature of the display based on the surroundings. The displays settings menu also contains new options like ‘Styles and wallpapers’, which could be the rumoured ‘Themes’ section. The white and coral Pixel 4 XL has a black frame and orange-and-white coloured power buttons.
As for the specifications, the Pixel 4 XL as expected will be powered by a 2.84GHz octa-core Snapdragon 855 SoC coupled with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. It sports a 6.3-inch QHD+ AMOLED display with 3,040 x 1,440 pixels resolution and boots Android 10 out of the box. There are dual rear cameras arranged in a square matrix, and the camera UI seems to have been slightly tweaked. Sections for portrait, video, night sight, photo and settings buttons are now accessible just by swiping on the main camera UI. The USB Type-C port and dual speaker vents are present at the bottom while the SIM tray is present on the left.
