Google says it’s got ‘a few new things’ to show us on October 15, and the Pixel 4 is probably one of them


The Pixel 4 is coming next month.

Google today confirmed that it’s holding an event at 10:00 am PT/1:00 pm ET on October 15 in New York City. There’s no direct confirmation of what Google has in store for the event, but the company does tease that it’s got “a few new things Made by Google” to show us.

It’s likely that the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL will be announced at this event. Not only have both phones been leaking out left and right lately, but the timing lines up with past Pixel announcements as well, with the past three Pixel flagships all being revealed in early to mid-October.

We’ll have to wait until October 15 before we know for sure if T-Mobile will carry the Pixel 4 phones, but it’s certainly possible that that’ll happen. T-Mo launched both the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3a earlier this year, and now that they’ve worked with Google to sell those devices, they could get the Pixel 4 on day one. That’d be great for T-Mo customers who have previously had to buy unlocked because it means that they’d now have the option to buy using T-Mobile’s Equipment Installment Plan if they’d like.

Are you looking forward to the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL?

    The 3a has turned me into a Pixel user but $400 is probably the most I’d pay for a device. The 4 isn’t going to be an option for me until right before the 5 launches.

      I’m hoping t mobile has some nice promotions like they did with the pixel 3a line.

      • Acdc1a

        Me too, but I don’t have any more iPhone’s in the drawer.

        • Mickey T

          My guess is the iphone will get the biggest values but the OG pIxel XL was right there with it and it’s about to be 4 years old.

        • RealLifeJasonBourne

          I’ve got a 2XL in the drawer I might consider giving up for a 4.

          Only problem is the lack of FP scanner; that really bugs me for some reason. (I see pretty much anyone being able to unlock it simply by pointing it at your face). Not sure how well I’d get past that – but I have a 3aXL as well, so I suppose I could always fall back.

          You can actually open faster with the fingerprint scanner on the back of a phone.

      For owners of the Pixel or a models, are you receiving updates directly from Google or is Tmobile involved and the updates are not as fast as they should be?

      • Acdc1a

        Getting updates as they issue without delay.

        • Jose Hernandez

          Thank you so much!

    Metro by Tmo has a plan with free Google One, might be nice to pair up for once with Pixel. They have such a putrid phone selection…

    If it actually launches on T-Mobile it may sway me away from my OP7

  • James Symmonds

    I got an email from Google. They pretty said, hey if you haven’t seen the leaks for the Pixel 4 yet, here’s a video.

  • Charles McCaskill

    If they launch the P4, I’m leaving the S10+ for it.

    • Goober

      I have a S10 and seeing as how TMO put me through hell on this last upgrade, I almost don’t want to upgrade anymore… But I’m on JOD and I don’t like this hefty payment on the S10, so I am looking for other options. Can I ask your pros and cons for switching in your S10+ for the Pixel 4?

  • Vahdyx

    I’m going iPhone this JOD from OP7 Pro, I’ll go Pixel 4 in Spring 2020.
