Google Pixel 4 And Pixel 4 XL Official Specs Leak With 6GB RAM, New Pixel Neural Core
You could remove every other shingle on the roof of your house during a torrential downpour and there still would not be as many leaks
as there are regarding the unreleased Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL. We have seen the phone from every angle
, including official press renders and learned about new features headed to the flagship phones. On top of it all, a full list of specifications has now been leaked.
This is not the first leak of its kind—there have already been plenty of leaks and rumors pointing to the potential specs
of each phone, and even benchmarks have found their way to the web ahead of Google's upcoming launch.
Now, however, the folks at 9To5Google managed to spy the official specs as presumably written by Google. It's not clear how exactly the site came across the info, but it looks like an unpublished web listing for the Pixel 4 series.
Many of the specs and features are the same across both the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL, save for the physical size of the display, resolution, and battery capacity. As such, the Pixel 4 will feature a 5.7-inch Full HD+ screen with up to a 90Hz refresh rate, and a 2,800 mAh battery. The Pixel 4 XL will up the ante with a 6.3-inch Quad HD+ display, also with up to a 90Hz refresh rate, and a more capacious 3,700 mAh battery.
Both models will feature the following...
Google Pixel 4 And Pixel 4 XL Specifications
- Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 855
- RAM: 6GB
- Storage: 64GB or 128GB
- Cameras: 12-megapixel dual-pixel + 16-megapixel telephoto
- Audio: Stereo speakers
- Wired Connectivity: USB-C
- Features: Face Unlock, motion sensor
- Security: Titan M security module
- OS: Android with 3 years of security and OS updates
The specifications sheet also references a "Pixel Neural Core" chip working in conjunction with the Snapdragon 855
processors. It seems this is a replacement for the Pixel Visual Core chip found in the Pixel 3 series
. The name of the new chip implies it can tap into a neural network for machine learning and artificial intelligence chores, though how exactly it gets leveraged remains to be seen.
As for the included the contents, the latest leak indicates each Pixel 4 phone will come with a 1-meter USB-C to USB-C cable (USB 2.0), power adapter (18W USB-C charger), quick switch adapter, SIM tool, and quick start guide. Standard stuff, though the absence of earbuds or at least a USB-C headphone adapter is mildly disappointing.
Given how extensively the Pixel 4 series has been leaked to this point, it will be interesting to see if there are any surprises when it launches. We'll find out soon enough—Google is expected to formally announce the Pixel 4 series on October 15.
