Google Pixel 4 family to come with 90Hz displays

Google is hard at work on its 2019 flagships, which should be unveiled in early October. There are many pieces of the Google Pixel 4 puzzle out there, but a new rumor today confirms some details and reveals some others for the first time.

Both new Pixel phones will supposedly come with 90Hz AMOLED displays. Check out our blog about refresh rates to see what exactly this means. The smaller Pixel will have a 5.7″ FHD+ display, while the larger Pixel 4 XL will come with a 6.3″ QHD+ panel. These displays will be branded as “Smooth Display”.

On the back, Google will pack a dual camera setup for the first time. The main sensor will again come with 12MP resolution like in past Pixels. This time though, it will be paired with a 16MP telephoto sensor. The ultra-wide sensor will probably come to Pixels in 2020 when Google finally adopts the triple camera setup. The company is also supposedly developing a “DSLR-like attachment” for the Pixel 4 that “may become an available accessory”.

When it comes to the battery, the Google Pixel 4 will come with the capacity of 2,800 mAh, and the 4 XL with 3,700 mAh. Google will also increase the RAM capacity this year. From the previous 4GB, this year Pixels will come with 6GB of RAM. Google sure seems to not be in a hurry to catch up with the trends in the industry.

Internal storage will come with the base of 64GB, while a 128GB option will be available as a step up. The Pixel 4 will be powered by the Snapdragon 855. The phone will have stereo speakers and Android Q out of the box. Google guarantees that it will support the software for at least 3 years.
