New Pixel 4 XL videos give a clear look at Google’s upcoming flagship

The Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL aren’t expected to be announced for another month or so, but today we’re getting a clear look at Google’s new flagship hardware thanks to some hands-on videos.

First up, a high-quality hands-on video shows off the white Pixel 4 XL with dual rear cameras and an orange power button. The video from AnhEm TV is in Vietnamese but the Pixel 4 XL’s software is in English, so we can see features like Smooth Display that “dynamically adjusts the refresh rate between 60 and 90Hz”. There are also settings for Screen Attention and Ambient EQ, which “dynamically adjusts the display based on surrounding light levels.”

The video also shows off Android 10’s gestures on the Pixel 4 XL, like activating the Google Assistant by swiping up from one of the lower corners of the screen. The Camera app is shown off as well, but it seems to be a bit buggy. There’s a CPU-Z app on the phone as well, and it lists the Pixel 4 XL as having a Snapdragon 855 processor, 6GB of RAM, and a 6.23-inch 3040×1440 display.

Meanwhile, another video shows off three color options of the Pixel 4 XL, including white, black, and an orange paint job that some rumors have called “Coral”. This video is much more focused on the hardware of the Pixel 4 rather than the software, but it does give us a clear look at the colors that the Pixel 4 XL will be offered in and shows off some sample photos from the camera towards the end of the clip.

Rumors have said that the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL will be announced in October, just like the past three generations of Pixel flagships before them. T-Mobile began selling both the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3a earlier this year, and so it’s possible that we’ll see the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL hit T-Mo’s shelves after they’re announced.

    Current Pixel 2 XL user here. I’m definitely getting the Pixel 4 XL! I’m so glad it doesn’t have an ugly notch or hole-cutout. I can look past the top bezel.

    • Android_God

      Yup! I was at first not a fan but if this phone is loaded with 90 hertz screen this may just pull me away from the OnePlus 7! Of course, if it’s too high of a price then I’m going 7 pro

        I know what ya mean. However, price aside, the Google Pixel line has maintained a specific reputation in a few areas that sets them apart from all other Android devices. 1) Absolute BEST camera 2) 100% Pure Android experience 3) Always up to date with the latest and greatest version and security updates.

        • Android_God

          Yup!!! It’s going to be a hard decision!

  • Android_God

    I don’t care for the colored power button but man that is one gorgeous phone!
    Watch, it’s going to be it’s going to be an outrageous price. Thinking 7pro. By the time the Google phone is released 7 pro price will drop on swappa

    Any mention of 5G capability? what mode of dual SIM will it have?

  • Walter Kowalski

    3xl had good screen except for notch. I will sell my pixel 3 small and get 4xl

    Although I’m highly considering the Pixel 4 to be my next phone, replacing OnePlus 5T (as it replaces a LG V20), I’m looking at a few things that could make the initial experience more challenging:

    1. No rear finger print reader. I have been, like many of you, accustomed to unlock the phone with my finger when picking up the phone. Let’s hope that Google’s face unlock is fast and does require additional swipes (like iOS) before the home screen is visible.

    2. Volume rocker. Now, my OnePlus 5T has it located on the opposite side of the power button. The Pixel 4 appears to have it just below the power button. Historically, my old Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 matched the 5T location. Even my work iPhone 6s (and all other iPhones through today) match the 5T. But looking at Pixel 1 through 3a, it would appear that Google is consistent across their line-up with power and volume on one side. This will require some muscle memory.

  • I’m ordering a Pixel 4 XL on day one! I hope there’s a good trade-in promo!
    6GB of RAM!

    I love my Pixel 3 XL BTW.
