Although it was probably the worst-kept secret in smartphone history, Google’s Pixel 4 is finally, officially confirmed. And while we knew what to expect (for the most part), the iPhone killer’s release still had a few surprises we weren’t expecting.
The phone is actually available in two different versions: the smaller standard Pixel 4 and the much-larger Pixel 4 XL. The standard edition comes with a 5.7″ 1080p display, whereas the XL boasts a 6.3″ Quad HD display. Aside from that and slightly greater battery capacity for the XL, they’re otherwise the same. That includes Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 processor, 64 or 128 gigs of storage, 6 gigs of RAM, and that dual-camera system — which features both a standard lens and a new telephoto portrait lens that offers 2x zoom through a hybrid of optical and digital focus. It also includes a wealth of new photo modes — including Live HDR+, Night Sight, and more — and Google’s onboard Assistant for more seamless usage. Google’s Pixel 4 starts at just $799 and is available for pre-order now.
