After Google "leaked" unexpectedly a, the company gave us another gift at the end of July by launching a video on YouTube that shows the of the phones and their abilities to detect gestures.
At this point we can only speculate why Google is being so communicative about the details of its next flagship phone. But the important thing is that we continue to know more about the Pixel 4. In addition to its hardware (which includes dual rear camera), the company has also launched the fifth beta version of.
More than any other model of the Pixel that precedes it, we now have a better understanding and knowledge of Google's next flagship cell phone and what its operating system can do.
The success of Pixel 4 is key to Google. The Pixel 3 and the 3 XL have not sold very well despite their excellent cameras and good critics. This could be due to the fact that the phones are exclusive to Verizon (although they work with other operators in the United States), and because of the fact that consumers are not buying as many phones as before. The phones are also expensive, something that Google tried to address when launching the mid-range phonesY in May. Problems have also been reported with the performance of Pixel 3, although in CNET we have not encountered these problems. Google needs to resolve these issues with the Pixel 4 if it wants to increase sales and take competitive advantage against Apple and Samsung.
The 5 most anticipated cell phones in the remainder of 2019
Google will have to solve all these problems with the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL if it wants to increase sales. Although there are still several months for its launch, the Pixel 4 is the maximum representative of an Android device willing to compete with the strong opponents of Apple and Samsung.
Without further delay, this is all we know so far of the anticipated Google phones.

The Pixel 4 will have a Pixel front camera
In June, 9to5Googlereport that someone had seen the Pixel 4 in public and that the phone had two front cameras and a huge front. But a drawing of the Pixel 4 that Google made to show where the Soli chip will be in the front module also showed that the phone has only one front camera.
We're not sure why Google got rid of a second wide-angle camera on the front, since it was very useful in Pixel 3 to take selfies spacious. But, seeing how Google can produce portraits with a single camera, perhaps the Pixel 4 will be able to take standard and wide-angle photos with just software. Google has not responded to a request for comment.

Google is already mentioning in documents its next family of cell phones that will end up calling.
On April 2, the site 9to5 Google found evidence in official documents of the search company. The references are in the AOSP project for Android development.

The image of the Pixel 4 also shows that it has no bezels.
The Pixel 4 may have enhanced dual SIM capabilities
The Pixel 4 could have a function that allows the user to switch between two telephone lines. This is an update ofY (and his older brothers Y ). These phones have a standard SIM card slot and an eSIM. This means that although you can have two phone numbers on the same device, you can call, send text messages and use data on one line, while the other line had to be inactive. In other words, only one SIM can be activated at a time.
But the Pixel 4 can have two active SIMs. However, if one of the two is in use to make a call or send a text message, the other line cannot accept calls or text messages in the meantime. This is similar to howand current Android phones operate.
